BLOKE are a four piece Rock band hailing from Cannock, Staffordshire
BLOKE are none other than Pete (Guitar/ Vocals), Dave (Bass/ Backing Vocals), Sutty (Keyboards/Backing Vocals) & Paul (Drums).
BLOKE, over the years have toured and worked with some of the biggest names in the music business, including, Glen Hughes, Toyah Wilcox, Feeder & Wolfsbane.
include covers from:
AC/DC to Blur, Greenday to THE Manics, Reef to The Sterephonics, U2 to The Wonderstuff.
The band are certainly no newcomers to the live music scene.
Under the name of BabyFace they extensively toured the U.K, with the likes of Wolfsbane, Blow, Toyah, Glenn Hughes and Feeder. Their debut CD “Forward in Reverse” received airplay on both local and national radio, even a Brazilian radio station featured the bands material on its rock show.
The CD was also enthusiastically received by the music press:
“Touches Brilliance” ….. Kerrang Magazine
“An Album of Which They Can Be Proud”…. Raw Magazine
Around the mid 1990’s during the “tribute band boom”, with the demand for original bands in decline, the band decided to try and widen their appeal and out-tribute the tribute bands with the creation of BLOKE.
Since then the band have played to enthusiastic audiences up and down the country, at pubs, clubs and Custom and Classic Bike Shows.
Billed as an “all male-bonding rock covers band with a scruffy drummer”, the BLOKE set draws from a melting pot of rock styles and songs.
Classic Rock, Punk Rock and Indie Rock are all given the BLOKE treatment.
The result is a band whose strengths lie in their live shows and whose sense of humour is always as loud as the songs they perform.
