The band play their own brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern.
The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’! With thousands of touring miles under their belts, they have earned themselves a strong fan base in the UK, Europe and beyond.
Their debut album, ‘Money Isn’t Everything’, caused a sensation when it was released in 2012, winning a host of rave reviews – many of them 5-star. Their follow up album, “Talk About The Weather” in 2014 also received great radio play and reviews.Throughout 2015 the band have continued to show their passion for touring and playing live with multiple SELL OUT shows across the UK and beyond. Most recently the band played a spectacular performance at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. With plenty more incredible shows lined up for the rest of the year, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra are best experienced live!
