“One of the most original bands on the circuit, with the blessing of that rarest of things – great self-penned songs. Old school Rock & Roll, just as I like it”
LaVendore Rogue (pronounced LAV, as in ‘toilet’, END, as in ‘not the beginning’, ORE, as in ‘iron’)
Nobody knows what the name means, but what is clear is that LaVendore Rogue is one of the most exciting, original and significant bands to emerge from the UK Roots scene for many years.
Winners of the 2017 UK Blues Challenge at the Cavern Club, Liverpool, which resulted in competing in the 2018 International Blues Challenge (Memphis) and European Blues Challenge (Hell, Norway).
Treating every show as if it’s their last, The Rogues have been making a name for themselves since 2013. In that time, audiences have come to love (or hate) their raucous blend of Blues inspired Rock & Roll.
Consisting of JoJo Burgess on vocals, Joel Fisk on guitar and backing vocals, and Stephen Cutmore on drums, this core nucleus has played together for over 10 years, and is complemented by Warren Lynn on Hammond Organ and James Payze on bass and backing vocals.
Their latest album, “A Night In The North” is a warts ‘n all live recording released in Spring 2017 shows the band at their gritty best. Capturing the energy and power of their live shows, and offering fans the chance to take a little piece of the band home with them.
2018 is looking to be the biggest year in the band’s history, with the release of their second studio album scheduled for summer.
Whilst fame and fortune is a dream for the young and naïve, one thing is for certain; LaVendore Rogue will continue to bring attitude, swagger and downright depravity wherever they go!
“If the Black Crowes came from Essex, they’d be called LaVendore Rogue”
