It’s Call Of The Wild Week and as we build up to one of the best new festivals on the summer circuit we’re shining a light on some of the must-see bands. See you down the front again!


Kris Barras Band




Friday May 26



Sealed With A Kris 

What better way to set the seal on COTW Day One than with the leader of the burgeoning blues rock pack?

Kris Barras has been on the Rushonrock radar ever since we met him at the bar at Ramblin’ Man Fair many moons ago.

He told us he had big plans back then.

And boy has Barras delivered.

A staple of the festival scene and a hard gigging blues rock machine, the former MMA fighter is one to watch.

What We Said

“Against all the odds Barras emerged victorious – mixing riotous rockers with slow-burning blues to create a maelstrom of fret-fuelled passion.

“He continues to build an ardent and committed fanbase by doing what he does best: hitting the road, playing to early adopters and new converts alike, delivering a level of consistency that’s earned a call-up to star-studded collective The Supersonic Blues Machine and reinforcing a reputation for good, old fashioned hard graft.”
