“Ready For Action” gives a nod back to days when rock n roll was the main entertainment and was an escape for many from the grind of 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 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! Roll on 2021!
“Ready For Action” was actually released back in February just before the pandemic started to kick in and affect the music industry. The band signed to new management with the Forge Music Group and, following the successful August release of “Where We Belong”, felt that RFA deserved a shot at the limelight.
After the year we have had with restrictions on live performances etc, Jamie and the band are itching to perform and truly are Ready For Action.

The Jamie Porter Band are a three-piece original classic/blues rock band from North Wales and originally came together as a live band for Jamie’s song-writing projects back in 2014 and has previously self-released 2 EP’s, 2 singles and 2 albums. (See Discography)
With Pete joining on drums in September 2019, it is a brand new line-up, 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.
Their music has been well supported on independent and local rock radio/radio shows in the UK and across the globe over the past few years, with DJ’s and stations such as ARFM, TotalRock, Rock Radio UK, Tameside Radio, Pur Rock Radio, HRH Radio, Metal Mayhem, MMH Radio, 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 featured 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.
