The Achievers are one of the most original and exciting new bands in British Blues/Roots music and their performances - with four-part harmonies, joyful melodies and infectious dancing rhythms have been leaving audiences across the UK and Europe wide-eyed and elated.
Some call it 'Rhythm & Blues', some call it 'Roots' but The Achievers call their music 'Dance Floor Gospel' - a soulful message of Good News and Truth for the modern age. Their unique approach is distinctly British, referencing trusted Blues and Americana traditions while recognising the time and place in which they find themselves. Their song-craft winks at Chess Records, CCR and The Band but their base in the artistic and industrial heart of South West England keeps them grounded in reality.
Their dynamic and engaging performances fly by in a haze of movement, laughter and musicianship and their stage-craft and camaraderie invites audiences to let go and get involved. There's no one quite like The Achievers and there's never been a better time to see and hear what they do.
