    I thought the band split up long before 1989!?
    Was this a reunion show or what?

    I meant to say, Willcox were actually a British band, not French.
    They were based in France throughout their career, but they were originally from the Newcastle area of England if memory serves.

    THE 80'S
    At the beginning of th 80's, 3 english brothers decided to bring their own patronymic at the bill: "Willcox" was born. In over a decade, they released several albums and set crowds on fire all over Europe, standing out as an internationally recognized and respected band. The first album " Roll Of Three" was released in 1981 and the second one "Hot Blood" in 1985. From blues to Boogie Rock, these to album were effective, melodic and powerful. Their full potential is however revealed on stage, a power-trio with Sam on the vocals, bass and harmonica ;Terry on the drums and Peter on the guitar: small line-up but maximal performance. After 10 years on the road, they shared the stage with Rory Gallagher, Bo Diddley, Dr Feelgood, Scorpions and many more others...

    THE 90'S
    At the beginning of the 90's, Willcox decided to for a while, each membertaking a different direction. In 1993, Sam signed a contract with Warner. The label didn't skimp on the means, Sam recorded his first solo album in the biggest European studios. The best session musicians were invited: Graham Ward (Paul McCartney's Drummer), Evert Verhees (Joe Cocker's bass player), Kenny Moore (Tina Turner's pianist). The album was released in the 1994 followed by 2 singles. Sam quickly got uncomfortable with this Gospel Jazz/Blues sang in French and decided to set aside this project and devote himself to composition and album production. Thus, he worked for Joe Cocker, Emma Kelly and other French stars.

    It's been a long time since Sam wanted to reunite the band. Time as come, Willcox is back to the roots...

    The reunion, back to the roots :
    In 2014, Sam decided to reunite the band. After 20 years of silence, the reunion appeared as an obviousness: Willcox was coming back to the roots. The objectives are very simple: release the album, gig as much as possible and above all, find the hot and sweaty atmosphere of a Willcox concert again. The "new Willcox" line-up is composed of two guitar players: J-P Chiche and Fabien Le Boedec.

    J-P is an international blues-rock guitarist. He shared the stage with Dr Feelgood, Alvin Lee, Maceo Parker, Saxon and many others... After many years accompanying artists, he decided to have a go with Willcox. The pleasure he gets while being on stage is infectious and doesn't leave anyone unmoved.

    Fabien is the second guitar player of the "new Willcox". Sam noticed his incredible sense of time during a concert. This young promesing guitarist will bring his energetic and fresh touch to the band.

    Camille the drummer, is the last member to join the band. He was chosen for his experience and his metronomic playing.

    The reunion promises to be a success. The new album "Gonna get Ya" is now available, a Boogie-Blues with no frills and terribly affective. Sam, J-P, Fabien and Camille want to prove they are a genuine live band, no one will give less than their best.

    HOT AND SWEATY
    These Boogie Men are for you...
