ore 22.00 free entry

Formed by Scott Milsom (of Big Boss Man/Blow Up Records, Skinny Lister and the Coffin Nails), The Hawkmen draw from an array of influences such as rhythm'n'blues, soul, and rock'n'roll which they bring together in a classic, rootsy, hybrid blend. The band emerged as a full, live act in 2017 following the early successes of soul 45 and Craig Charles favourite, Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover (Record Kicks), a northern soul remix of Emma Beatson's debut single Do It (selected by Craig Charles for the second volume of his Freestyle Records compilation series) and The Hawkmen's blazing Keep On Working EP (Mocambo) which yielded another 45 and was widely played on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6. In 2017 Love Is Blind was released and features on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club Vol.5 compilation and received more BBC 6 Music airplay. 2018 got of to a flying start with the release of the Chemistry Of Love single, yet more plays on BBC 6 Music, leading to a mini UK tour and concerts in Germany and France.

The Hawkmen – Love Is Blind (Released 24th July 2017)

Trailblazing the 'hotrod’n’soul' sound, electrifying live outfit The Hawkmen clearly see their way to a new single in the form of smouldering, dance-floor groover Love Is Blind. It's the first cut to be taken from the band's as-yet-unnamed debut LP and finds the fresh-faced outfit blend heavy soul bass, surf guitar licks and vintage rhythm and blues vocals to spin that ages-old tale of 'man's ruin' – the femme fatale. Man, you should have known from the start that she was trouble! Just as well the flip is the raucous romp n stomp of The Frathouse so you can jitterbug those sorrows away...

Laura Seija & The Hawkmen - "Keep On Working" 

Released digitally and on 7" vinyl by Mocambo Records in Germany, this classic Rhythm & Blues song was a hit on Craig Charles BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music shows, and featured on Craigs biggest songs of 2014 radio show.

Emma Beatson & The Hawkmen - "Do It"

The Hawkmen completely reworked the tune with live instruments. Featuring the Babyhead brass section, the band created an up-tempo soul classic. The track features on the Craig Charles "Soul & Funk Club 2" compilation released 25th November 2013.

The Hawk feat Little Hannah Collins - "Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover":

For the first release, Scott teamed up Hannah (former vocalist for The Heavy) to create "a slice of contemporary northern soul". "Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover" gained the support of Craig Charles (BBC Radio 6) and Francesco Adinolfi (Rai Radio 2), amounst many others. The track is available for digital download and on 7 inch vinyl (on the Record Kicks label).
