Rhythm + Blues
Built For Comfort emerged from the ashes of Swindon based, The Hot Tamales in July 2002. Founder members Alec Adams and Bill Jones were joined by Phil Tait on drums, Chris Goddard on bass and John Ingleson on guitar.
Bill and Alec had met in the summer of 2000 when Alec was seeking harmonica lessons. Bill knew Chris from many years of playing together in The Vindaloo Brothers, Phil was a chance encounter from working with a TV leasing company and John answered a local advert by the boys for a guitarist. And then the story began. By the summer of 2004 the band had played over 65 gigs together, averaging about one a week.
Now, over a decade and hundreds of gigs later, Built For Comfort have turned into one of the tightest, rocking Rhythm and Blues outfits on the circuit today! The recent addition of Blues guitar maestro Michael King on guitar and Simon Needler on Hammond organ and piano have added a new dimension to the band. Little wonder they wow audiences wherever they play!
Built For Comfort have supported among others Wilco Johnson, Paul Lamb And The Kingsnakes and Ben Waters.
Herefordshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2013, the Prince has to be the complete package as traditional town pubs go. A 16th century timber-framed building boasts two much-altered bars; the front one sub-divided into two discreet areas, one off to the side which hosts regular live music (folk sessions each Wed eve, bands Sun 4pm and occasionally Thu eve). This is a true community venue, bustling with locals and tourists alike, where a warm welcome is always assured. Honest and good-value food includes a popular Sunday roast. An extensive range of foreign and craft beers - on draught, in bottles and in cans.
