About

The Wes Paul Band are a 50s/60s group playing rock n roll, rockabilly, country and rhythm & blues. Their music can be heard online at http://www.reverbnation.com/thewespaulband

The band is fronted by beautiful young vocalist Rebecca Paul and the charismatic Wes Paul who pride themsleves on whipping up a great party atmosphere, getting everybody dancing and singing along to well-loved classics.

They have a wealth of performing experience, touring the US and recording in Memphis. They are evermore popular on the UK scene gathering glowing testimonials wherever they play. Performing hits by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Jerry Lee Lewis and Gene Vincent, Muddy Waters and Elvis Presley, they appeal to audiences across the board, old or young. The band has over 100 songs and 4 different sets to cater for different kinds of audiences.

The Wes Paul Band are guaranteed to get people up and dancing, activey encourage audience participation and will liven up any party, event or celebration.

The band all met at the Cavern Club in Liverpool where Wes Paul was the compere and organiser of the weekly band showcase - Sounds of the Sixties Cavern Showcase. Paul Galvin was the lead guitarist with one of the regular groups (Nashville) and Rebecca Paul came from a background of running shows in Manchester and became involved in helping to promote the nights. It wasn't long before he asked Paul and Rebecca to join the line up of his new group.

Having spent 2 years as the house band at the Cavern Club the band moved to West Yorkshire to further their career and concentrate on getting paid work.They cut their teeth in the pubs and clubs around Yorkshire/Lancashire and in May 2010 their hard work was paid off with a successful 4 state tour of the United States, where they also recorded their first album at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis.

The band have been invited back to America next year to perform at the Hank Williams Birthday Celebration in Montgomery, Alabama and the Rockabilly Festival at the International Rockabilly Hall Of Fame in Jackson, Tennessee.
