Saw Voodoo Room Saturday Night at the Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks. They were Brilliant. Very accomplished musicians. If you get the chance to go and see them, I would certainly recommend you get your ticket for a great night out.
I saw this awesome band in Neath last night , I was blown away by them , superb musicianship, and friendly guys too , I really want to see this band again, every member was a master of his craft , which is rare these days. hard rock done right – whats not to like !
Saturday’s gig – Voodoo Room at The Elgiva. Classic 3 piece – guitar, drums and bass. 2 stacks, a few pedals and a kit. They used the theatre sound and lighting rigs. Sound basically OK, but lighting had a major fail 3 numbers in. Blackout – and when the rig crawled back into action an obvious DMX fail – no varilites. Thankfully sorted during the interval…
So – about the music. The key here (given what they’re covering) – is can the guitarist do Hendrix and Clapton and the drummer do Ginger Baker? The answer – a resounding Yes! Voodoo Chile, All Along The Watchtower, Layla – excellent. And the drummer did an ‘in style’ solo in memory of Ginger. They also benefited from a talented bass player.
Thoroughly recommended if they come near you…
Just seen you at The Elgiva, Chesham – absolutely superb musicianship, I don’t know how you achieve it, I guess hours of practice and the love of doing it.
Really enjoyed myself (although my wife was not keen on coming – too loud for her) !
Thanks once again, hope to see you another time.
I saw Voodoo Room last night in Aberdeen. What a totally brilliant gig. These guys played relentlessly for nearly three hours – amazing musicians, amazing sound and totally amazing flawless set. They had everybody rockin’ in the superb intimate venue of The Lemon Tree. I have never enjoyed a gig so much. All the Cream hits and even Toad too. Yes, Toad – awesome drumming. I loved Cream, but never had the opportunity to see them – my mum thought 11 was a bit young and they never came to Elgin anyway. The 50 year wait was so worthwhile. Thank you all!
Saw Voodoo Room at the Mercury Theatre last night. Wasn’t really sure what to expect as I’m not particularly a Hendrix, Cream or Clapton fan but do enjoy a good live gig. Well I certainly got that and a whole lot more, these guys are superb musicians. They were on stage for nearly three hours and played all the Hendrix, Cream & Clapton classics. They look like they really enjoy what they are doing and certainly provide a great evening of entertainment for the audience.
If you get the chance to see Voodoo Room, grab it, you won’t regret it.
Thank you ! 🙂 X
Just spent fantastic evening watching these guys perform magic. Terrific musicians , wouldn’t hesitate in seeing them again .
Thank you so much 🙂 Our pleasure x
We saw Voodoo Room for the first time last night at the Good Intent in Petersfield and had travelled from Basingstoke to see them.
A very cosy venue but what a performance. I have been a Hendrix/Cream Clapton admirer for many years and was totally blown away by the musicianship of these guys. It was like a masterclass in how to play and I can’t wait to see them again wherever the venue. Inspiring!!!! Thanks for such a great performance guys.
Well What a Gig, a crowd of us saw Voodoo Room for the 2nd time at the Bath Komedia last Thursday, they were superb… Being of an age when I bought Hendrix & Cream 1st time around on vinyl it was great to not only hear some favourites but also to be close enough to appreciate the great musician ship of the band.
It is fitting that V.R. play Bath as both Jimi Hendrix and Cream played our famous old Rock venue The Pavilion back in the 60s.
On the night we were treated to a fantastic drum solo by the stand-in drummer who was great, to some fantastic bass playing that Jack Bruce & Noel Redding would have been proud of, and what accolades can we give Pete Orr , probably magic is best for the note perfect sounds he produces…
The evening was rounded off with ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to Jeavon ~ Mr Bassman. We will be rounding up the troops to make sure that the band play the main stage at the Komedia next time they are in Bath.
Just recovering from the gig on the IOWight last night. To say that I was impressed would be a massive understatement. I really had my doubts that a group could get away with covering Hendricks and Cream, but I was wrong. So so wrong . The superlatives escape me awesome is as near as I can get.
IOW audiences are hard to please and polite applause is the Norm. Not so last night if the band were not trying to get on a ferry back to the “North Island” they might still be playing encores.
I will try to get to the next Southampton Gig .Ferry times permitting.
The only thing not like the originals was the lack of Agro between Bass and Drums. Seeing Jack and Ginger back in the mid 60’s the drum solo would often end with Jack kicking over a high hat and Ginger throwing his sticks if not fists at Jack. The crowd loved it. Good old fashion Rock n Roll.
Thanks again for a great nights nostalgia or was it neuralgia?
Well what a band, 2nd time I have seen them at Bath Komedia. Grew up buying Hendrix and Cream Vinyl 1st time around, and both bands played the local Bath Pavilion back in the day… Cream 21 Nov 1966, Hendrix 20 Feb 1967 so for Voodoo Room to play Bath is a great treat to us old rockers.
Thoroughly enjoyable gig last night, great musicianship, Top Drummer and awesome solo, Mr Bassman ‘ Happy Birthday to you’ Jack Bruce & Noel Redding would be very impressed.
Mr Orr just keep on rocking mate! We must get you on the big stage at the Komedia next time, we’ll make sure the word gets around, and try and pack the place.
many thanks Davie B ~ Bath
Amazing special evening of nostalgia with 3 highly accomplished musicians delivering as near perfect sounds to the originals as possible. Stunning guitar work and probably the best drum solo I’ve ever heard. Best night out since 26th November 1968 at the Albert Hall! Many thanks.
Saw these guys at Cranleigh last night. As a lifelong fan of Hendrix, Cream and Clapton I was wondering how they would do justice to such icons. I needn’t have worried they were absolutely superb. Each member of the band excelled and as another person commented there were no gimmicks or silly fancy dress just superb musicianship. At the end of well over two hours they deservedly had a standing ovation from the entire audience. If you love Cream and Hendrix make sure you see these guys in 2019.
Absolutely fabulous concert at the Astor in Deal this evening. How three muscisians can produce such superb sound is beyond me. Each muscician was excellent in their own right. The lead guitarist/singer blew my mind, The bass guitarist was as good as thunder fingers and the drummer was awesome., Tne drummer’s ten minuute solo (or however long it was!) was the most accomplished drum solo I have ever had the pleasure of listening too. Very well done guys. Sorry you had to drive home – I still owe you a pint! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Excellent performance at Livingston last night ( 18/10/2018 ). No phoney costumes, look-alikes or gimmicks, just authentic sounds of Hendrix and Cream. Highlight of the show was an incredible drum solo performed by Mr Tonks, how he kept that solo pace up for so long was incredible!
Saw the band last night at Kinross.
They were great, over two hours of Classic rock, and it’s obvious the band love the music of that era.
Not many 3 piece bands would tackle Layla, but it had the power and passion of the original.
Pete Orr’s [ got to have Scottish roots with a name like Orr ] mastery of the strat
was something to see, all the Hendrix licks and runs played to perfection plus the subtle
chordwork that people forget Hendrix excelled at, Pete’s intro to Little Wing was note perfect .
Thanks guys , hope to see you again soon, and I expect you to learn Born Under a Bad Sign and
Sleepy Time Time.
When I saw Voodoo Room on a flyer at St Georges Theatre in Great Yarmouth, I was in two minds whether to go or not. After a lot of shall I, shan’t I, on the day before the gig I decided to go. Luckily I managed to get a ticket. What a good job I did.
It was a great night, I’ve never seen Hendrix before, but it was just like I imagined a gig. However I have seen and met Cream two times at the old Floral Hall in nearby Gorleston in the ’60s. I was just like the real thing. Pete has Clapton off to a tee, Andy is just brilliant and as for John, Ginger Baker would be jealous of his drumming !
So glad I saw you lads, can’t wait to see you again when you’r in the area. Perfection !
My sister and I have just watched you perform at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester and you were all MAGNIFICENT! It was the first time we have seen you all but it won’t be the last, after enjoying an absolutely first class show. You are so very talented and we look forward to attending your next show in Worcester. Thank you for a great night in entertainment 5⭐️
Saw you in Penzance last saturday with Jevon Beaumont on bass, great evening, hope you can come back again soon!
Saw you last evening at Windsor Theatre. Brilliant. I saw Mr Hendrix in 1970 at the Isle of Wight and he would have been proud of your performance. Never got to see Mr Clapton or Cream but I do have the DVD of Creams’s farewell concert at RAH in November 1968. Keep it going. Hope you get more gigs. Come back to Windsor and I am sure you will get get people in the audience.
To Peter, John and Andy,
You were outstanding at Bridlington Spa on the 9th Sept. Class musicianship from all coupled with self effacing humour.
You are not what I call a ‘tribute’ band. No wigs, costumes or pastiche. Just three excellent musicians who carry the torch for great rock music of the past but with an added twist that is entirely yours. That’s what makes you special.
Please come back to Brid when you can. We’ll be there!
Pat and Tina x
For the second time this year my wife and I saw this great threesome a week ago in East Grinstead. What energy. What skill. What a show. It really is something to see! We are aiming to get to Cranleigh in Janury now!
I saw the ad via Social Media at 16.00 hours today , and thought can’t miss this, so a bit of short notice to get ready from work but, ‘carpe diem’ and I made it to the gig at Knaresborough. So glad that I did! Great song selection and the sound was great through the amps. Thanks, and hope to see you again, and by the way also its not every day you get to meet ‘The God of Hell Fire’!
First time I have seen your band , at Broadstairs on 18 May, 2018 and had a brilliant time, wonderful evocation of my favourite music, with humour and humility, thanks guys so much! Spreading word of mouth and will see you again as soon as I can. Thanks for making my day so special, and loved the informality and relaxed nature of your introductions, always good to learn something new. Stay safe and well and keep those concerts coming!
What a great night at South Molton, you guys were brilliant. Look forward to seeing you in Exeter in November. Got my sister and brother in law to come down from Leicestershire to see you, they loved it. Keep up the good work!
I have seen a lot of live bands over many years and can quite honestly say that
This trio are in the top ranking . Amazing musicians.
Guys, enjoyed your Totton gig on the 29th March 2018. Great songs well played and very enjoyable. Look forward to seeing you all next time your in the New Forest…
Caught you guys at Legends Gt Yarmouth thought you were brilliant. The V Lounge certainly appreciated every note. As you say no wigs no gimmicks just fantastic musicians enjoying there trade. Thanks guys.
Went to see you at Chippenham on 23rd February. I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The guitarist was superb and I was glad he didn’t change his appearance to look like Jimi or Jack!. He played excellently and I loved a proper bit of electric guitar at it’s best. The bass guitarist was also quite incredible and I loved his bass solo! Now the one thing I was dreading was a drummer not of the ilk of our Ginger playing Toad! I thought 20 minutes of mediocre drumming would be awful. BUT, he was fantastic and I could have listened to the famous drum solo for another half an hour! Two or three people went to the toilet when this drum solo was being performed – they must be mad and not true devotees of good solid rock music! Fantastic night in a brilliant little venue to be honest! Good when you go to a gig with a bit of a negative and come out with a huge positive! I preferred the Hendrix and Cream stuff but that is because I have gone off Clapton a bit over the years. Cocaine was played superbly though!
Came to see you at Whitstable on Saturday 3rd Feb. REALLY, REALLY enjoyed the show. …Hadn’t seen you perform before and didn’t know what to expect. …Was a little worried that Mr James Marshall Hendrix would be turning in his grave ….but no way!!! ….He would have applauded you guys. Fabulous guitar work Pete and exceptional bass & drums. We sat in the front row and during the break I spoke to Pete briefly about Jimi’s white Fender and that I had been to Seattle to see Jimi’s resting place.
Anyway ….brilliant performance and will look forward to seeing you again. … A rare treat of Hendrix, Clapton and Cream.
Check this out!
Any chance of playing this at the Luton Library gig 2018?
Saw Voodoo Room for the first time last night at Coalville (01/12/17) – a fantastic performance !! All the lads are hugely talented but Pete’s superlative guitar playing and vocals (and he was suffering with a sore throat !!!) and enthusiasm was truly awesome. Can’t wait to see them again – come back soon lads !!
We saw Voodoo room at the lyric Carmarthen. Having never seen them before we were blown away by the musicianship of the band. You could imaginen you were listening to the real thing. No fancy gimmicks just superb music. I hope the relatively small crowd won’t stop you coming back. Next time we’ll bring some friends. They will be blown away like us.
Great night in Blackwood on 4 Nov when I was grinning like a Cheshire cat all night. They give you the classic songs but with the added bonus of their added flavour to the mix which is always played with sensitivity and love for the original. Looking forward to seeing them again in Carmarthen on 18 Nov. Why not come along and be another Cheshire cat enjoying the cream. What with Jimi to boot, it’s a no brainer! Hey, how about “If six was nine” this time?
Sorry last comment should have said shame the venue was not full. Sorry.
Saw you at the Tunnels in Bristol.
Absolutely fantastic we really enjoyed the concert, The enthusiasm and skill was amazing. could have listened all night.
It was a shame that the venue was full.
Have you thought of trying Stroud Subscription Rooms you would go down there one hell of a treat and it holds about 400 standing.
Fantastic musicians trio, great loud live authentic sound of cover songs of Hendrix and Cream ! Saw you at the The Tunnels in Bristol. Thank you
Like the T-shirt and CD!!
Went to see Voodoo room at The Whitstable Playhouse on Saturday 11th February, Brilliant night out
Hope to see you back there again soon
Amazing drum solo
Saw Voodoo Room last night 11th February, at The Playhouse, Whitstable, for the first time and was absolutely blown away by the high standard of musicianship!. We would definitely recommend anybody who loves Cream and Hendrix to go along and see them. A brilliant evening.
Sat 4th Feb 2017 Morecambe, The Platform
Fantastic performance last night. The first time I have seen the band and hopefully not the last.
Just home from The Platform Morecambe. Great show from the guys. They even managed to sound good here. The platform struggles as its very wide and not so deep and a lot of bands can’t seem to get the balance right. Tonight was the best gig there far a good while all praise the sound tech! Excellent gig guys keep on Rocking.
Just been to the Lytham gig. A very impressive show, but knew it would be having seen the guys at Bury Met a couple of years ago. The Lowther is our local theatre, but nearly did not attend as we thought the volume was far to high at Bury, in fact almost painfully so. Not only was the volume spot on at Lytham, but the general sound quality was too. If Voodoo Room keep coming to Lytham, then I will keep going to the shows. I am sure that return visits will draw larger audiences simply through the power of word of mouth.
Fantastic performance at The Century Theatre last night from these three very talented musicians – and modest with it – so refreshing! We went home with ringing in our ears feeling that we’d certainly been ‘experienced’ with a BANG! Great stuff. Keep it going. Can’t wait for our next ‘experience’ (we were dead lucky to win two free tickets). Thanks lads – don’t stop doing what you’re doing – we old ‘uns acknowledge and appreciate real talent when we see (and hear) it!!
Please come back to Coalville when its bit warmer, toes still froze but a great night, thanks guys
Spent the evening at the hawth watching voodoo room last night a brilliant evening well worth going to see look forward to seeing them again
That was an outstanding performance last Friday in Bridgwater Arts Centre. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Really glad that we made the effort to see you last night at Komedia in Bath.
You guys really kicked some butt. I’ve seen some so-called Hendrix ‘tribute’ bands before but none of them can hold a candle to you lot.
As your publicity says:-
This is definitively NOT a wig wearing, dress up, pantomime style tribute band – rather, it’s simply great music performed by great players of genuine pedigree.
And I can’t argue with any of that.
All the songs you performed were of the highest quality. ‘We’re going wrong’ particularly made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, and I think you out-toaded the great Ginger Baker with the drum solo.
A bit peed off that I didn’t win the free tickets to another show but, what the hell, I would gladly pay the going rate to see those songs performed by three guys who carry the spirit of six legends from the sixties.
And using equipment from the period too.
In the words of the great man….
Thank you for a spellbinding evening in Workington. I have loved the music of cream and Hendrix since the sixties but never saw either at the time. This is the nearest I will ever get to their music and songs I have loved and sung along to came alive to perfection. The solo on Toad was wonderful and then my favourite Crossroads followed after. I spoke to the band in the interval who were so friendly and informative. The contact with the audience was so good and I came away feeling alive and back in those days. As I said to the drummer at the end keep going I want to see you again. WOW!
Thank you so much for such a fantastic evening in Shaftesbury last Saturday. Your playing is totally amazing, I couldn’t sit still in my seat! Wish it had been a standing gig, though when I could bare it no longer I did get up and have a dance at the front. I really hope to see you play again soon!
Shaftesbury 31st April 2016 – Blown Away! I am never now going to see Hendix or Cream live and if I did manage to get a ticket it would probably be “ant on a stage”. So 4 rows back and seeing, hearing and smelling 3 consummate musicians play 2 hours plus of Hendix and Cream (and probably sounding better than the originals). Gift your ears a gift and catch these guys near you – you will be delighted !
The night in halifax was excellent and last night at the grand in clitheroe was probably even better. A brilliant venue and a superb sound. Congrats to the band on a top drawer performance.voodoo room are a must for any Hendrix and cream fans, and any live music fans are guaranteed a fantastic evening
Thank you for a fantastic set at Horsebridge Centre, Whitstable tonight. My ears are still pleasantly ringing 🙂
So sorry Pete, it was you on the drums not John Tonks. You were brilliant.
Just come back from the Leeds gig. Enjoyed it even better than the Halifax one. Pete’s versions of Little Wing, voodoo child, Hey Joe and Red House superb tonight. Special mention to Tonksy on the drums…brilliant. Keep coming back to Yorkshire lads.
Thank you for a fantastic night of quality music at The Platform in Morecambe last night. Please come back soon.
So impressed with you all in Halifax recently that I’m coming with 6 friends to your Leeds gig on the 20th Feb. Can’t wait.
A really great night with Voodoo Room at Mickleton Village Hall County Durham. A bit of an introduction to Hendrix and Cream for me. Loved it, I’m hooked! Very much hoping for a return visit. Fantastic.
We were the late arrivals last night in Halifax, first time a band has waited for me to arrive, and most appreciated because you delivered a top drawer performance. only disappointment was not winning the T shirt !! I’ll be back for another go in Clitheroe . I’ll be spreading the word about how good you guys are and bringing some mates to enjoy some fantastic playing .
I’ve been to a lot of gigs in my time but last night in Halifax you guys really impressed me. The sound from your Strat and Marshall amps was awesome. Been a live Hendrix fan for years and some of the stuff brought tears to my eyes as the sound was so good. Will be there at Halifax again if we are privelidged enough for you to come again and this time I will be with a load of friends who I can’t wait to tell them what I experienced last night. Thanks guys, you deserve all the success that comes your way.
Thanks Ken. It was great to play for you guys last night. I am sure we will be back up in Halifax in the future and it would be great if you could spread the word. Join our mailing list, (if you haven’t already,) and we’ll let you know when we are in the area.
Andy, Pete and Tonksy
Passing the Congress Theatre in Cwmbran today and saw the Voodoo Room gig poster. This will be right up my street as I loved Cream and Hendrix in the late 60s. Can’t wait for the gig in the middle of January. My all time Cream favourite is Crossroads live from Wheels of Fire. Hope that you play this!
I am sure crossroads will be making an appearance during the gig. Looking forward to seeing you there.
great gig last night in exeter, cheers
Great gig last night at Hanger Farm. Will be seeing you again at the Brook next year.
Absolutely world class last night in Enfield!! Look forward to seeing you again. Hendrix and Cream fans, do yourselves a favour and go see Voodoo Room. x

Praise indeed!! 🙂
You were absolutely brilliant last night at the Old Town, Swindon. Thanks for a great evening.
Gig at Bungay 19th Sept was awesome. We were so impressed. This band is a ‘must see’ for any Cream or Hendrix fan
Great gig at Sevenoaks!
