James Watt & The Avenues

James Watt & the Avenues are a surf and rock’n’roll 3-piece, specialising mainly in reverb-drenched instrumental songs that evoke the sound of crashing waves and covering songs from the early days of rock and roll. 

 

Named after a Corby, Northants street name, the band are made up of a sex-toy-dispatching Bassist, an NHS-programming-Guitarist and an ‘African Sunset’ Drummer who stands up and plays a bespoke Yamaha Electronic kit. 

 

 

They are influenced by all things 60s-instrumental Surf Rock, Punk, Classical and obviously Rock’n’Roll. Formed in 2013 from an acoustic 2 piece who played the James Bond theme (acoustically), the band finally followed their influences and progressed to a proper setup with the traditional Guitar, Bass & Drums.
