Steve Whalley Band

Steve Whalley has drawn the attention and consequently forged working collaborations with some of the very foundations of British and American popular and traditional music.  Artists include Chuck Berry, Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, James Burton, Gerry Rafferty and many more. 

Steve replaced Noddy Holder in Slade for 16 years from 1992 and toured extensivly with them internationally.  Wherever he appears audiences are left spellbound by his powerful and emotive delivery.  His guitar style combines immense power and unorthodox savvy, raging from Cooderesque Slide/Bottleneck through Gospel, Soul, Rock and Reggae & Country.  He has appeared on Glastonbury Main Stage 4 times and is an old friend of Michael Eaves.  Steve is now signed to Spectra Records USA and has an album with them plus his music is featured in films. 

Steve and Richie go back some 40+ years and developed quite a following in the Glastonbury community back in the day with the band they formed named "Nice One".  They were the go-to band and it has to be said, true pioneers of the Glastonbury story, playing the Main Stage on numerous occasions
