- 18 Sep Chester The Live Rooms
Robert Jon & The Wreck are ready to tear up the UK. Following the release of their acclaimed studio album
Last Light On The Highway, the California based band will tour the UK in September 2021.
Robert Jon & The Wreck is comprised of Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals and guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums and background vocals),
Steve Maggiora (keyboards and background vocals), Henry James (lead guitar and background vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass).
With Robert Jon & The Wreck, the Southern rock resurgence is shining brighter than ever before. This blues and country-infused rock ’n’ roll
quintet have consistently delivered soaring solos, boogieing grooves, and arguably perfect tunes since debuting with 2011’s Fire Started.
RJTW’s latest LP, Last Light on the Highway, provides yet another heaping helping of stellar Southern Blues Rock.
The band has been received with accolades and raving reviews for years now, from nominations of “Best Rock” and “Best Blues” and winning the title of “Best Live Band” at the Orange County Music Awards in 2013, to numerous top 10 chart placement on Southern Rock Brazil’s Top 20 Albums to being praised as “Classic and fresh at the same time” by Rock The Best Music, “Raising the bar for the Southern genre” by Blues Rock Review, and “keeping the history of classic 60’s and 70’s rock alive for newer generations” by Blues legend Joe Bonamassa.
Robert Jon & The Wreck have supported Joe Bonamassa, Buddy Guy, Eric Gales, Living Color, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Walter Trout, Rival Sons, Robert Randolph, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Cadillac Three, Black Stone Cherry, Devon Allman, Billy Sheehan, Sturgill Simpson, and many more.
“A classy re-bore of well-trodden southern rock tropes by an Orange County quintet with impeccably realised contemporary commerciality. Born of Allmans and Skynyrd, but box fresh for 2000.” – Classic Rock
“Robert Jon & The Wreck’s new album is a real humdinger.” – Planet Rock
“Robert Jon & The Wreck’s most outstanding album release to date.” – Blues Matters
“There’s the crunch of bluesy guitar riffs, melodies straight out of the Soul book, philosophical lyrics that draw you in and some inspired jamming.” – Fireworks
