“It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll But I Like It!”

The Railing Stains played an electrifying gig at my wedding last week. We can’t thank them enough for their essential contribution to such a perfect day. They played a beautiful warm-up set whilst the guests fueled up for the party ahead, and then played a thumping party set with some great crowd interaction. Frontman Bobby was reliable and responsive during the planning process, and delivered on all of his promises to make it a great event. I would highly recommend The Railing Stains for any wedding (especially if you want a quality band instead of a typical cheesy wedding band) or corporate event; and take the opportunity to go and see them at one of their shows. Over and out! – July 2016

New for your special evenings and occasions The Railing Stains UNPLUGGED!

The Railing Stains – New Years Eve, Brighton, Open Air Concert


Dan Craine

“Whether playing with my own outfit the Downliners Sect, the late, great Art Wood, or the Eel Pie Allstars it has always been a pleasure to work with the Railing Stains. Highly professional, hard driving, and truly entertaining with a charismatic frontman par excellence in Bobby Ward.”

Glastonbury 2014

Glastonbury one off London Urban Tour that has never been done before was at the famous Mode Collective Club, Notting Hill. Following The Railing Stains appearance at Glastonbury the organisers chose The Railing Stains to perform at the prestigious club where they were wildly received.

 Apple Events, New York

“What a performance! Fantastic after dinner entertainment. You transported the whole venue. It was just like being at Stones concert in the late sixties (not that I remember it!) We have had so many great comments. We will certainly be booking you for other events.”

The Independent

“One of the 10 best events this year.”

About The Railing Stains

The Railing Stains are a legendary Stones rock band, just like the Stones it’s all about being there… Seeing them perform live on the night, they capture the same 60’s raw energy. This is the band chosen by the Stones themselves to perform at the first ever Rolling Stones convention at the Brixton Academy.

The Stains have been established for over 20 years and their gigs are as legendary as the band themselves. Performing to arenas , copious open air concerts, private party bashes & corporate events , they have entertained the armed forces worldwide – the Rhine army summer show in Germany saw them perform in front of 60,000 troops and nearer to home the band have performed at such recognised clubs as the Twickenham Eel Pie Club and also such concerts as Radnor gardens, Twickenham and the Brighton Centre and many more too numerous to mention …

The Stains has seen Jesse wood (Ronnie’s son from the Stones) become a member of the band, toured with the late great Art Wood (Ronnie’s brother) and the band’s second album produced by Charlie Skarbek (designated Australian Rugby World Cup music producer) who has also produced for the likes of Shirley Bassey, Charlotte Church , Hall & Oats & many more.

The Stains are rolling and are gigging throughout the UK, Europe and beyond ….

The band are a self contained unit and specifications are available upon request, whether it be private parties, weddings, corporate events, open air concerts etc…

To coincide with the first album the band produced , they performed on the 30th anniversary of Brian Jones’s demise at a massive party where Brian lived (which was Cotchford Farm, Hartfield), having been asked by the owners . The gig was performed in the grounds and afterwards gained worldwide press coverage . The Stains, after that memorable date dedicated their first EP to Brian entitled 2000 light years from home which can be heard on the website.

and the stories still roll…

Bobby Ward – Vocalist/Frontman

Bobby is a charismatic frontman whose passion for Rock n Roll shines through. Some of the highlights of Bobby’s career to date are: Gigging with artists such as The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and the Michael Schenker Group (MSG) and jammed with Jimmy Page and John Bonner, rehearsing at the famous Le Chateau Pointoise.

A well known rock n roller Bobby has had links with the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, Sting and the Police, Chris Jagger, Mick Avery, Don Craine, Eddy Grant and many more. Jamming with the likes of Fuzzy Samuels at Eddy Grants plantation in Barbados before rehearsing at his famous Blue Wave Studio.

Dylan Amey – Drums

Was thrown into rock n roll at a young age, surrounded by musicians as a kid so no way of not getting into music.

Put together his first band at the age of 7, formed The Tin Lids at about 12 who did pretty well for a child’s band, played in various bands until he formed SPG (special patrol) in about 1990 with the late Jamie Barnard and Dan Lyons (a Stains guest from time to time). toured the UK until they finally became The Northern Lights with Marcus Vandel and Stée Jonno, again toured all over the UK, basically having fun playing rock n roll. Whilst this was going on, he formed The Reservoir Gods (Quentin Tarantino tribute) playing Uni gigs and sell out shows all over.

Also became the drummer for Steve Ellis and Love Affair around the mid 90’s, again touring and recording. Not only playing with Steve Ellis, he also had dealings with Paul Weller, The Tremelos and many other 60’s bands.

Whilst doing all this, he also played with other various Brighton bands until settling with Brighton super group My Federation – toured the UK, Europe and USA, supporting acts like James, Fatboy Slim, Travis, Boy George and many more.

Also in the background he met Bobby Ward from the Railing Stains, he kept asking him to join but he was always too busy with gigs, tours or other bands but eventually gave in and has been with The Railing Stains since about 2005.

Jake Smith – Guitarist

A rocker all of his life, one of Jake’s first gigs was to see The Who at Charlton aged 2 with his parents. A multi instrumentalist and singer Jake took up guitar at school aged 13 and has been in bands since he could strum three chords. Since then he’s sung and played in and around Oxford, London and Brighton with his bands Madkings and Felix who toured with Supergrass amongst others.

His first gig with the Stains was way back in 2006, he’s looking forward to plenty more…

Favourite stones song – hard to pick just one but probably Sympathy… Favourite Stones Album – tough call, but Exile on Main Street –  I think…

Jasper Vincent – Guitar

Jasper ‘Guitar’ Vincent, from Holland originally, made his way to the UK in search of Rock n Roll.

Luckily he found it in the form of The Greatest Rolling Stones Cover Band in Europe – The Railing Stains. Jasper has a history with the band spanning 12 years, having joined as lead guitarist in 1998. Jasper has a growing collection of guitars that he likes to use on stage, his favourite being the Orville by Gibson’59 reissue Les Paul.

Dan Sherrington – Sax

Dan has been with the band since 2000, when he joined them to play at the Brixton Academy. He started out many years ago, in a local Blues band and can now be seen playing a variety of music from Funk and Soul to Brazilian Jazz. He toured Europe with US soul legends Charles Walker and Lou Pride, and has recorded several albums with British R&B greats, the Stormsville Shakers, and chart-topping songwriter, Phillip Goodhand-Tait. However, good ol’ Rock’n’Roll has always been close to his heart, and he likes nothing more than to blast that horn, Bobby Keyes-style!
