The Sonic Jewels - Rock Live Act in Borehamwood

The Sonic Jewels Short Info

The Sonic Jewels are a London based band who write and perform original songs, which are an unholy amalgam of Hendrix, MC5 and The Stooges whilst also giving a nod of approval to 70's Glam Rockers like T-Rex, Bowie, Quatro yet somehow managing to bring in the heaviness of QOTSA and The White Stripes. If it's excitement you're after then you need to bare witness, as every live show is a performance and every performance is different – yet always with the constants defined by strong songwriting and tight musicianship, energy and an amazing sound that you won’t believe three people can make.

The Sonic Jewels perform their own music at many regular venues including Canvey Island Football Club, The Blues Kitchen, The Purple Turtle and The Borderline, The Horn, and The Dublin Castle. The Sonic Jewels also have a Gallery/Theatre performance set, which incorporates a self-penned script, an actor, projections, costume changes and a read-a-long comic book with a parallel plot to the presentation titled “Yeah Yeah, Oh No! (a cautionary tale of the highs and lows of a lifetime dedication to rock ‘n’ roll music).”

The Sonic Jewels are also the backing band of choice for 60’s Psych Legends JULY and “Tubular Bells” Producer Tom Newman.

Previously released by Acid Jazz, included in MOJO Magazine’s top 10 list, a full page feature in The Blues Magazine and fresh from the radio friendly release of a self written, recorded and produced EP The Sonic Jewels are THE band to watch right now.

Don't just take our word for how good we are, here's what the critics say about The Sonic Jewels...

"The band are just great together and have a good on stage chemistry, their songs are short and to the point and are stuffed full of melodic riffs and memorable choruses. If you like inventive and exceptional guitar work and great musicianship then The Sonic Jewels will be right up your street but they also have a groove and an underlying edge that will appeal equally to fans of the rawer side of Psych and Garage Rock." - Steve Worrall (Retromanblog)

“The Sonic Jewels make a good old-fashioned filthy noise, more than a retro exercise in vintage” - Johnny Sharp (The Blues Magazine)

"Touchstones Hendrix and Cream are worn proudly on sleeve" - MOJO Magazine

"The Sonic Jewels sound like the bastard child of The Prisoners and Cream" - Mod Speed

"a tremendous live act who manage to conjure excitement and energy from start to finish" - Lois Wilson (MOJO)

"The Sonic Jewels lit up the stage with guile, energy and pure rock and roll spirit." - Music-News.com

"These riff-heavy rockers have an insanely infectious, grungy jubilance that’ll suck you right into their hyper-kinetic vortex." - Miss Dolly Mod (My Old Kentucky Blog)

“The Sonic Jewels are the ones to watch judging from Saturday's evidence; explosive Led Zeppelin-esque riffing and a healthy dose of glam.” - Glasswerk
