Gigs began in November of the same year debuting at the Cat & Wheel in Bristol and since then the band have performed at all kinds of venues and events including Daz’s Rock 4 Charity 4 Kerry which took place on Weston’s Grand Pier in front of 1500 people in January 2012. Further R4C gigs on the Grand Pier and at the Bristol Colston Hall followed in amongst a busy pub and private gig schedule.

Friday 24th June - Victoria Klewin and the True Tones

With their unique brand of catchy motown/soul inspired tunes that also draw on elements of jazz and blues, VICTORIA KLEWIN & THE TRUETONES have been making waves both locally and nationally. It’s a very classy affair, oozing style and sass in a similar vein to contemporary artists such as Imelda May and Caro Emerald. “The songs sound as if they were written in the 60’s”, says producer Rob Williams (Ruby Music). But this is far from a nostalgic tribute act. It is as if the band take the very best bits from old soul, jazz and blues and wrap them up in a new package. It’s pop in the best sense of the word – catchy, finely-crafted tunes with a wealth of musical heritage and depth behind them.

“From the very first strum of the guitar, my doubts melted away, only to be replaced with pure, groove-filled, joy.”
femalearts.com
“The essence of motown blues with a modern twist. Fun, refreshing and full of spirit.”
FLUX Magazine
“What a voice!”
Jazz FM
