Featuring Live on stage: THE RIFFS
Famous for a being a fantastic live band, The Riffs have appeared all around the UK and Ireland and well as in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Holland and Spain.
With so many hundreds of gigs over the years, there are understandably a few that stand out (for different reasons!). The Riffs have shared the billing with Laurel Aitken, Madness, The Specials, The Skatalites, The Selecter, Neville Staple, Edwin Starr, Desmond Dekker, Bad Manners and loads of others.
When The Specials reformed in 1990s, The Riffs were the support act for their first gig at London’s Mean Fiddler. The band have also welcomed Buster Bloodvessel, Dave Barker, Winston ‘Mr Fixit’ Francis and Paul Fox of The Ruts to the stage as special guests and have played venues from Camden’s Dublin Castle to Brixton and Islington Academies – and even the O2 Arena as part of a Madness Christmas tour.
And that’s before you mention touring overseas without passports, broken down buses and cars, arriving in a different country to where you’re meant to be playing, getting stranded at airports, forgetting instruments… one day we might write a book.
2011 ushered in a new era for The Riffs. After a hiatus, the band are back on the live scene and following a triumphant comeback at London’s 100 Club, are back to their legendary best. The boys will be back in the studio in 2013 to record their first new album in donkey’s years and have got plenty more gigs to keep the party coming. The Riffs are back – Future!
The Riffs are Spenny (guitar, vocals), Duane (bass, vocals), Mark (drums), Steve (keys) and Joel (sax).
