Jamie Porter Band


Jamie Porter Band

Ready for action lyrically gives a nod back to days when rock n roll was ‘the’ entertainment and was an escape for many from the dead end job.

Waiting for the evening or weekend, rock n roll was/is the drug that many need (my sweet addiction!), the partying and dancing, and of course the girl you were chasing. She was/is who you want to rock all day and night with, and hey who isn’t ‘Ready for Action’

The hook ‘Ready for Action’, was also a statement about where we are with the band. Hungry to play live and entertain with our music and was the first song written by Jamie after coming through some low times and health problems.

READY FOR ACTION – damn straight we are!

Jamie Porter Band are a 3 piece original classic/blues rock band from North Wales UK, and are Jamie Porter (Guitar/Vocals), Danny Porter (Bass/Keys/Vocals), Peter Kearton (Drums/Vocals)

The Jamie Porter Band originally came together as a live band for Jamie’s song writing projects in 2014 and has previously self-released 2 EP’s, 2 singles and 2 albums. (See Discography)

The band is a brand new line-up with Pete joining on drums in September 2019.

The band’s live sound gives the listener big riffs, infectious hooks and catchy choruses with big harmonies and plenty of opportunity for audience participation combined with active and energetic approach to the performance.

Described as ‘…feel good anthemic blues/country rock..’ in an album review in Power Play Rock & Metal Magazine (Issue 207 April 2018), influences are many taken from a variety of blues, country and classic rock influences.

Music has been played on independent and local rock radio/radio shows across the UK and beyond over the past few years, with DJ’s and stations such as ARFM, Rock Radio UK, Tameside Radio, HRH Radio, Metal Mayhem, Midlands Metal Heads, Tudno FM, Mon FM and many others leading to Wyatt’s New Rock Show on Planet Rock. Songs are regularly in rotation on Las Vegas based Big Time Radio and have been used on TV shows on the UK’s Channel 4.

The band has played numerous local venues and events and has notably supported US Southern Rockers Hog Jaw at the Live Rooms in Chester in 2018 and more recently opened for Focus the band at The Tivoli Venue in Buckley North Wales during their UK tour in September 2019.

With rehearsals and new music on the way, they are looking forward to taking the music to a wider audience, and recently signing up with the Forge Music Group looks to develop this further. They have done select live streams and videos during the pandemic period.

Early 2020 saw the release of a new single ‘Ready For Action’ on 21/02/20.

The single ‘Where We Belong’ is released on 01/08/2020, and October 30th sees a re-release of ‘Ready For Action’ in conjunction with the FORGE MUSIC GROUP.
