As we head towards the end of 2017 there’s no let up for The Voodoo Sheiks.  We have a new Drummer in the shape of Spencer Blackledge, check out his Biog’. We’d like to thank John for his commitment and contribution over the last 7 years and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Subsequently a new photo shoot was organised and we headed up to Ascot, Berkshire to have some suitable moody, atmospheric, urban looking pics done at a secret location.

David Sell was tasked with making us look good and considering what he had to work with he did a great job!

We have booked Platform Studio for two sessions in Feb and March 2018 to record our third album, due for release late March with a launch scheduled for May 4th at The Surrey Blues Club, Hersham.  Once again we are putting our trust in Damon Sawyer to record, engineer & produce our next offering!

Before 2017 finishes we’ll be playing a few gigs including Bedford  Esquires, Platform Tavern in Southampton, Scratchers at The Three Lions in Godalming, a return to The Tuesday Night Music Club in Coulsdon for a double header with our good friends Sugarman Sam & The Voodoo Men and The Golden Eagle in Southsea.

We’ve also bagged a terrific support slot at The Boom Boom Club, Sutton on Dec 2nd to the great Tommy Castro & The Painkillers. Thank you to Pete Feenstra for that one!

Heading in to 2018 there are some great gigs already booked in with more to add as we speak!
