The Urban Chiefs are Psyche-Blues, Stoner-Rockers from Tamworth; challenging the norm since 2009. The pairs huge sound is due to a unique blend of instruments combined with percussive grooves and hard hitting, catchy riffs. There is so much happening on stage that often people are mistaken in thinking that the guys are using samples or pre-recorded material but everything you hear is being produced by the Chiefs as it happens!
