    Event Information: Event: W I L D E Presents THE EXCELLOS Headline Act: The Excellos Support Act: DJ W I L D E Date: Friday 5th July 2013 Venue: Jamboree, 566, Cable Street Studios, Cable Street, London, E1W 3HB Times: 8pm to Midnight Ticket Price: £6 Online / £ 8 Door Ticket Link: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/226459 Venue Website: www.jamboreevenue.co.uk Venue Telephone: 07915936157 -- THE EXCELLOS Passion fuelled, loud, rockin’ low down dirty vintage rhythm n’ blues trio The Excellos will have your tongues-a-wagging, legs a-boppin’ and voices howlin’ as their live performance’s are exploding with grit, energy and a frenzied buzz of rock and roll madness. They sing up a storm being inspired by the likes of Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker and Elmore James; music with a wild rawness that really goes for the jugular, with the added spice of looking like they've just stepped out of a 1950’s drive in movie battling zombies and supernatural geeks with those incredible sideburns. They have been praised as 'The Beatles of Swamp Rock' and rightly so, having devoting themselves to the heady genre by naming their band after the premier American Swamp Rock Blues Record Label of the 50’s ‘The Excellos Rollin Records’, keeping the swampin’ flame alive!
