Rob Heron & the Tea Pad Orchestra / Nice N Sleazys / 19.11.2022
Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra dont care what genre you choose to put them in  Western Swing, Blues, Country, Rock & Roll or whatever else as long as you understand that theyre 100% sincere and 100% immersed in this stuff. This is no lazy pastiche, no dressing up box. They live and breathe this music and want you to get immersed with them. The Tea Pad are eight years into a remarkable story that began with four friends studying at Newcastle University and now sees them playing venues and festivals across the UK and mainland Europe. Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne but with members hailing from Orkney to Warwickshire, the Tea Pad sound draws on myriad influences  from Hank Williams to Django Reinhardt, Tom Waits to The Beatles  yet ultimately sounds like nobody else, that North Eastern Swing style thats utterly their own and changing all the time.

Across the four wonderful albums  2012s Money Isnt Everything, 2014s Talk About The Weather, 2016s Something Blue and 2019s Soul Of My City  the band have constantly added new flavours to their sound: Heron in particular is a vinyl obsessive, always fired up about some new passion  calypso or boogaloo or whatever this week brings  and that eclecticism feeds into their songs, with the newest releases adding twangy 60s guitar tones and modernist R&B styles.

The band tour the way bands should  widely and endlessly  winning friends and fans at each new show with notable performances at festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, Wilderness and Cambridge Folk Festival. Theyve appeared three times on Radio 4s Loose Ends, and had their music played by everyone from Marc Riley to Huey Morgan. October 2019 saw the band release Eta Carinae, a four track EP, with a title track reminiscent of The Beatles and features a string quartet and lyrics inspired by Brian Cox documentaries.

2022 sees a long awaited return for this incredible outfit - We cant wait for the gang to be back on the road

Thats one hot band right there!  Huey Morgan, BBC Radio 2
Rob Heron evokes the spirit of Bob Wills and Django Reinhardt with a quintet that shuffles and boogies with panache. Infectiously good-humoured Uncut Magazine

Amazing musicians who play with both passion and a sympathetic regard for the history of the genre. Maverick Magazine

On this, their second album of skewed Texas swing, gypsy jazz and hot, humorous country blues theyve added reeds and horns for a big, thick sound, but their spontaneous combustion is always unstoppable. Scotsman On Sunday
