The Jokers with Special guests Bannermans Live & GMH Promotions Present
The Jokers burst out of the starting blocks with their debut album, The Big Rock N Roll Show, in 2009, and then spent two years on the road building a substantial live following supporting the likes of Hawkwind, Y&T, Joe Elliot & The Down N Outz, Argent, Anvil and Fozzy.
The Big Rock And Roll Show was awarded Powerplay Magazines album of the month in July 2009, went straight on to Planet Rock Radios A Playlist and was universally acclaimed for its rare quality.
While mixed by Mike Fraser in Vancouver, (straight after he had mixed AC/DCs 10 million plus selling Black Ice album), The Big Rock And Roll Show was only recorded in guitarist Paul Hursts Liverpool living room, with duvets hanging on the walls to help the sound and provide a makeshift vocal booth.
Having sold over 8,000 physical CDs and 6,000 downloads of The Big Rock And Roll Show, an incredible amount for a totally independent artist on their own label, The Jokers began writing Rock N Roll Is Alive at the end of 2010, determined to produce an even more outstanding sophomore offering. Fired up, and laden with funds from sales of their debut, they hooked up with producer Andy Macpherson (Eric Clapton, The Who, Barclay James Harvest, The Buzzcocks etc), and began putting tracks down in his Revolution Studio in Cheadle Hulme.
When Macpherson heard the potential hit singles that The Jokers were creating, he insisted on perfection in recording every single vocal note, guitar part, and drum thwack. In between recording, (and to pay for all the perfectionist studio sessions) The Jokers spent the subsequent two years gigging round every rock pub and toilet club gig in the North of England, honing their live craft down and testing new songs out to capacity crowds at every concert. Rock N Roll Is Alive was then finally mastered by Tim Young at Metropolis studios in London in February 2013.
The Jokers are; Wane Parry (Vocals) Paul Hurst (Guitarist) Simon Hurst (Bass) Chris Poole (Drums)
