Glastonbury 2014

Following the incredible feedback from the gig at Glastonbury the organisers contacted The Railing Stains on the 17th July 2014 to do a private gig in the South of France.

In 2013 The Railing Stains were endorsed in the official Glastonbury programme which stated 42 things to do at Glastonbury and the band came in at no.2 “look out for The Railing Stains in the VIP Rabbit Hole Stage”.

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!

After we revealed on Saturday Keith Richards is so keen to get back to playing his guitar that he’s considering putting his talents up for hire, another rocker has offered to help out. Bob Ward, frontman in Stones covers band, The Railing Stains, wants Keith to join the group for their next charity gig.
The Stains have toured with Art Wood, late brother of Stones member Ronnie and Ronnie’s son Jesse joined the band for a stint as a rhythm guitarist in 2001 and Bobs sister recently worked as French interpreter for the bands former bassist Bill Wyman, “We’re playing to 40,000 people in Brighton for charity gig Paddle Round the Pier and if Keith wants to come and ssplay he should give me a call” says Bob. “I met him once, just after his daughter’s wedding and we nearly crashed into each others cars. It was a very rock n roll introduction.”

“You got the audience rocking! I’ve had loads of requests to get you back as soon as possible. We were really impressed with the quality of the music and the huge amount of energy you give off in your performance. Most of all it was great to work with such an easy going, professional group of people.”

Mark Andrews, son of Stones founder member Brian Jones

“That gig was worth a million dollars.”

“On behalf of myself and Zap Productions, I am writing to say thank you for your blistering performance on New Year’s Eve. The 20,000 people in the audience were all singing – it was very Rock ‘n Roll! The feedback from our clients has been tremendous and everyone had a fabulous night.”

Dean Amy – Festival of Sound

I have worked with Bob Ward and The Railing Stains on a regular basis over the last 5 years.

I can vouch for them being an incredible live act and a very professional outfit. I have had no problems with any of the band members and have no issues with working with them on future projects.

One of the clubs I booked them for had an increase in both attendance and revenue of over 65% by 7.30pm the club was standing room only! And surpassed its normal busiest day of the year “New year’s eve” by a considerable sum of money.

I would happily recommend The Railing Stains to anyone looking for a fun evening of full on Rolling Stones hits and entertainment, they will not disappoint whether they are playing to 100 or 50,000 people.”

Johnny Mans Agency

“Whenever I use the Railing Stains , it’s guaranteed to be a great gig and 100% professional.”

Paul Shed – Celebration Time Entertainments

“Authentic … and a great band”

Phillip G, Monte Carlo

“No gimmicks, impersonations or messing about, a truly legendary evening of pure Stones Rock ‘n Roll.”

Project Manager, 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.”

Guy, Manor Farm

“You were amazing, you did us proud and the party never looked back. You choice of songs was spot on and letting us on stage with you was the highlight many people’s evening and certainly mine! It doesn’t come any better than that.”
