live band

Pete Leigh and The Union

We play a mix of Chicago style blues (Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters etc.), and some more rocky songs (Doors, Canned Heat).
directory of local bands
We also play a few originals.

The lineup is Harmonica (Pete), Guitars (Rob), Bass (Andy) and Drums (Martin), and sometimes keyboards (Julyan). Pete is the main singer, but Rob does a few songs too. Rob also plays a mean slide guitar on several numbers.

The band was originally formed in 1999, but the present lineup has been together for three years. We have played with people like Dick Heckstall-Smith, Tony McPhee, Zoot Money and Mojo Buford. We have also appeared on the main stage at both Maryport and Colne. Pete regularly plays at venues in Memphis and Chicago.

We have gone down well at large venues and small pubs. We play full-on, so are best suited to lively venues or proper Blues events.
