Talented young band with vibrant stage act and its own interpretation of blues/rock plus influences from funk and soul. Repeat gigs across Sussex and Kent plus appearances at the Latest Blues Festival, Brighton 2012. Favourably reviewed by Blues Matters Magazine. Debut EP gaining attention.



With a burning desire to entertain and pursue a serious music career Alex Butler formed his own band, Red Butler, in January 2012. The intention was to bring together talented young musicians in a band dedicated to success covering a range of genres comprising elements of blues, rock, funk and soul. After a series of experiments the current line up emerged in April 2012. Red Butler includes the following musicians who all have extensive experience with a range of bands over the last five years.

Alex Butler Guitar/Vocals
Jane Pearce Vocals
Charlie Simpson Drums
Steve Eveleigh Bass
(For larger venues Will Wensley on Keys)

The band have already been favourably reviewed by Blues Matters Magazine and Alex, following an outing at the Skegness Rock & Blues Festival 2012, has been identified as ‘one to watch’. Alex and Jane will represent the band at this year’s event.
Alex and Steve attended Sussex Downs College at Eastbourne studying modern music. Early in 2012 the college took part in a national music selection, whereby the best musicians were invited to appear on the BT Live Stage at Hyde Park during the Olympics. The band was successful in winning one of the two places and Red Butler went on to perform before several thousand people enjoying all of the fun and festival appeal.
More recently the band has concentrated on writing original material. Influences include; Stevie Ray Vaughan, Etta James, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Free, Derek Trucks, King King and Santana, all of which contributes to Red Butler’s diversity and wide audience appeal.
With a stream of bookings in music venues throughout Sussex and Kent, and in response to high demand arrangements are in hand to produce an album, and as a pre-curser an EP is now available to purchase at gigs.
The talents of this young band demand recognition and they have already shared the stage with; The Ben Poole Band, The Red Dirt Skinners, Loz Netto, Will Wilde, The Will Johns Band, and The Mick Clarke Band. Future bookings include an outing with Jo Harman & Co in April.
With the combination of Alex’s subtlety, flair and passion, Jane’s vibrant power and soulful voice, Steve’s deft, thoughtful bass work, Charlie’s fluid and expressive drumming and Will’s dynamic keyboard playing, Red Butler are going places!
