WHERE AND WHEN
PUTNEY - FEBRUARY 2019
"True spirit of independent blues! Great night with the Starlite campbell band in SW15.
So refreshing to catch a high-energy, enthusiastic band with virtuoso players and fresh material.
Special tip of the hat to Suzy Starlite whose name reflects her sparkling bass runs and unfettered dynamism.
They never dropped a note all night, and why would they with a line-up featuring Steve Gibson on drums, Jonny Henderson on hammond, Simon Campbell on guitar and the explosive Ms Starlite herself!"
Pete Feenstra: Lifetime British blues award winning London promoter
FESTIVAL OF JAZZ & BLUES AUSTRALIA - NOVEMBER 2018
"The Starlite Campbell Band did more than rock the blues big top, the musical interplay, communication with the audience and get off your arse dance sounds and styles ensured the blues crowd as well as the band had a fantastic experience on Saturday night. The Starlite Campbell band's debut at Wangaratta was an absolutely overwhelming success indeed!!"
Frank Davidson: Co-artistic Director, Wangaratta festival of jazz & blues
ROSS ON WYE - JULY 2018
"Your set was excellent and well-received. We’ll definitely get you back.”
Mike Bertenshaw: Creative Director, Linton Festival Board, UK 2018
EDINBURGH - DECEMBER 2018
“This was the real deal, scintillating stuff… Simon Campbell and Suzy Starlite are mad for the music, and mad for each other – and their enthusiasm is infectious!"
"And then – and then, folks – they close out with ‘Walkin’ Out The Door’, the opening track from Blueberry Pie. And this slice of mid-Sixties style soulful blues, with some wah-wah atmospherics, gradually morphs into Led Feckin’ Zeppelin, the riff tipping the hat to the likes of ‘How Many More Times’ while Starlite channels John Paul Jones with an increasingly mountainous bass line. And Campbell goes into mad axeman mode, conjuring up a howling guitar interlude with the aid of an old-fashioned echoplex box of tricks – real analogue tape, boys and girls – ahead of an echo-laden solo. Greta Van Fleet eat your juvenile hearts out."
Iain Cameron: Blues Enthused.
