Michael Morrow & The Culprits - Hard Rock Countryfied Blues

On Friday 24th May we welcome back Colorado’s Michael Morrow & The Culprits to JJJ to deliver another evening of ‘Hard Rock Countryfied Blues’.

The American Rock Band, hailing from Colorado, deliver the goods when it comes to that bluesy hard rock with a touch of twang undoubtedly coming from that Big Red Gretsch guitar Michael is known for playing over the years. That tone matched with his voice is distinctive. Influenced from bands like The Beatles, Aerosmith, KISS you can hear that melody and strut matter.

They perform regionally from their home state of Colorado to Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah and are once more dipping their toes into the UK following a successful tour in 2023, upholding their mantra of “Write, Record, Perform“.

The boys put on a great show last time they paid us a visit and we’d definitely recommend you don’t miss them this time around.

Show Starts: 8.00pm | Ticket: £8.00 (Inc. Fees) online | £10.00 on the door (subject to capacity)

Friday 7th June (from 8pm):
• Indigo Kid
• Steve Ajao Blues Giants

Saturday 8th June (from 8pm):
• Thomas Heppell
• Big Wolf Band

Sunday 9th June (from 2pm – 10pm):
