Lauded by the UK blues press as one of the classiest and contemporary blues bands recording and performing, the Buckinghamshire based Storm Warning deliver superbly crafted original blues-rock as well as breathing new life into blues standards.
Earning a reputation as one of the UK’s best and individual blues bands has come via a two-fold ‘band and product’ success.
Led by the vocals and blues harp of ex Mick Ralphs Band front man Son Maxwell and the stylish guitar playing of Bob Moore and backed by keyboardist Ian Salisbury, bassist Derek White (Larry Miller Band) and drummer Russ Chaney, the band’s ten year history includes four critically acclaimed CD releases.
Tracks from the albums have also been played on radio stations across the world, including BBC Radio 2 (for whom they also recorded a live session broadcast on the Paul Jones blue programme).
With Storm Warning’s fifth album expected around March/ April time, the Arran Rock ‘N’ Blues Festival audience will get to see and hear the noted quintet playing brand new material as part of their main stage set.
The band, in their guise as the Storm Warning Blues Band, will also be playing a second set of trad. blues/ blues standards on the PHT stage.
“Blues workout par excellence.”
“Bob Moore is one of the great underrated players in the UK whose touch, tone and feel put him above many of his contemporaries.”

“Soulful gut-bucket groove that’s half hard times, half good-time-all-the-time… Storm Warning delve deep into breezy jazz, fiery rock or smoky R&B, but the blues always call them back.”
