RAINBREAKERS will showcase their nationally-renowned blues, rock and soul sound this month at Silsden Town Hall.

The band, known for gritty guitars and soulful vocals, will perform on Saturday February 22 during the latest music night at the volunteer-run venue.

A band spokesman said: "Showcasing their original material using gritty guitars and soulful vocals, their songs shift from heavy to delicate in an instant while remaining highly emotive and pulling everyone in around them”.

A band spokesman said: "Rainbreakers are noted for their distinctively forlorn vocals and moodily contagious songs that explore the complex struggles of life."

"The band seeks to shape a musical marque for themselves as they continue to explore their unique brand of rock and soul and aim to cultivate the roots of their own introspective brand that's a subtle variety of brooding, English, roots-rock.

"Bottling the anger and frustration they witness in modern-day living, they siphon off their feelings into suitable musical containers that allow raw emotions to bleed out during passionate live performances."

Rainbreakers have toured extensively across the UK and Europe, sharing stages with The Temperance Movement, The Kris Barras Band, Samantha Fish, Devon Allman and Wille and the Bandits.

Performances at festivals like the Great British Rock and Blues and Wilderness Festival have seen the band receive accolades including nominations for the UK Blues Challenge and Best Emerging Artist in theBritish Blues Awards.

Support will come Sleepy Jake Segrave, a folk-punk singer songwriter/street poet from Bradford who pulls no punches with his gritty lyrics about how tough life can be.

Silsden Town Hall will host a jive night on Saturday February 29, and a ceilidh on Saturday March 14, in aid of Manorlands.
