This results in an unforgettable experience for all who see them perform live. For those that missed Black Sabbath in their first incarnation, this is definitely the closest you are ever likely to get to the real thing.

Artizan @ The Linley Tavern, Alsager View map - The Linley Tavern Permanent link


Guns Or Roses @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Guns Or Roses

Guns Or Roses aka GoR have been around since their concept in 2009 just after the new year when lead guitarist John Sumbler put an ad out to start a Guns N' Roses tribute band.

The only original members from that point are drummer Padraig Tansey and of course John Sumbler, but after some trials and tribulations, a couple of line-up changes, GoR are:

Martin Colley - Axl
John Sumbler - Slash
Dermo - Duff
Erol Canavan - Izzy
Padraig Tansey - Matt

The band have been noted as being the most entertaining GnR tribute on the circuit and have wowed audiences from London to Norway, Manchester to Bulgaria. These guys are international jetsetters as well as UK favorites without a doubt.

John Sumbler is arguably one of THE top Slash impersonators on the scene, recreating each riff, solo and lick to the note. It has to be seen to be believed, and up front with Martin Axl Colley, these two are a dynamic force to be reckoned with. Backed by three other superb musicians, GoR are up there with the best for sure!

Playing everything pre-dating the Chinese Democracy album, GoR will hit you with a setlist which alters slightly each gig, but you'll get the faves and hits such as Paradise City, Sweet Child, It's So Easy, Knockin' On Heaven's Door and Mr Brownstone as well as tracks like You Could Be Mine, Pretty Tied Up, November Rain and My Michelle. You won't be dissapointed.

With each gig, they aim to give the audience a good two hour performance dependent on the venue and whether they're on stage with another few bands or not, GoR are well worth the money!

£8 adv; £10 door

After the interval it’s into the jumpsuit and enjoy all of Elvis’ iconic numbers in a set that will make you believe you are there with Elvis and hear all your favourites.

This show has a fantastic variation of numbers that can only be replicated by a singer of huge talent and is unique and not seen anywhere else in the World.

The Collingwood Elvis Festival, Canada is the largest festival in the World and celebrated its 20th Anniversary with the first ever attendance at an Elvis Festival by Priscilla Presley. On Saturday 26th July 2014 Gordon took to the stage at the Collingwood Elvis Festival and performed “You Gave Me A Mountain” and “American Trilogy” which provoked a standing ovation from the 3000 Elvis fans and resulted in him being crowned 2014 Grand Champion.

In 2005 Gordon was Grand Final winner of ‘Stars In Their Eyes’. In 2006 he won “Best Elvis 68 Comeback Special” in UK & Europe. 2011 saw Gordon crowned “European Elvis Champion 2011” by Elvis Presley Enterprises and in 2013 he was in Canada and crowned “Tweed Grand Champion”. Also in 2013 Gordon realised his dream by presenting a full theatre production of “Aloha from Hawaii” along with 20 musicians and singers.

Gordon is without doubt the World’s No 1 Elvis Tribute and his shows are sensational – it’s as if ELVIS himself is on stage – maybe just maybe he is!

Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band

Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band are a true soul phenomenon. Without ever having had a number one single, Geno had two of the biggest selling UK albums of the sixties. Amazingly, both of these were live albums: ‘Hand Clappin’ Foot Stompin’ Funky Butt Live’, for example, was in the UK album charts for 48 out of 52 weeks in 1966. Incredibly, only ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ sold more copies in the UK that year…A fact that is a clear testament to Geno’s awesome ability as a live performer.

In 1980 “Geno!” Was a Number 1 hit in the UK for Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Roland, spoke of the cult sixties soul performer who ravaged club-land to the chants of ” Geno! Geno! Geno!”

Today, Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band are as vital as ever when it comes to rocking the house. The ultimate showman and his super-tight band will fill any dance floor from the moment he steps out and keep it heaving into the early hours.

Geno Washington is a legend. He enjoys cult status on the Soul, R&B and Northern Soul scenes, and an unsurpassable reputation as a live performer. He is electric on stage and his love of life makes him an inspiration and a joy to work with. He is also rapidly gathering a reputation as a must have artist, at the hippest parties.

Recent private functions include The Duke of Westminster’s daughter’s wedding, The Goodwood Festival of Speed and The Mobile News Awards at The London Hilton Metropole.

Geno has now resurrected his blues duo show ‘Singin’ The Blues’, has a street soul and R&B quartet – The Yo Yo’s – as well as the good old The Ram Jam Band.

One of the best British blues bands in the business. If you want to hear quality blues music, these guys have got it all.

It is rare to come across bands like Dirk Diggler’s Blues Revue in the bars and clubs of the UK and is a real treat when you do. Their ability to relate the feel and emotion of the blues to their audience is hard to better.

Their repertoire reads like a ‘Best of the Blues’ compilation: Muddy Waters; Buddy Guy; Little Walter; Sonny Boy Williamson. Lending from their influences, these guys also seamlessly blend their own great blues songs into their performances and deliver their set with a touch rarely achieved this side of Chicago.

All seasoned musicians, Dirk Diggler’s Blues Revue formed purely to play good blues music whilst having a good time. In return, if you come and see them play you won’t go home disappointed.

This is one goodtime blues band that guarantees a great night out!


Ruby Turner @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Ruby Turner

Ruby Turner was born in Jamaica and grew up in Montego Bay.

Her career to date has always had many unexpected twists and turns with major tours, theatre and TV appearances, and touring with Jools Holland, the future continues to look positive. On 4 June 2012 Ruby performed ‘You Are So Beautiful’ with Jools Holland at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace in London. In autumn 2012 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC ‘The Choir: Sing While You Work with choirmaster Gareth Malone’ and in 2013 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC ‘Songs of praise gospel choirs competition.

Her major break came in the mid 1980’s, when she was asked to join ‘Culture Club’ at the height of their stardom. Ruby very quickly learned how to deal with the routine of gruelling tour schedules, living out of a suit case and performing to vast sell-out audiences. An offer of a solo record deal closely followed and she soon signed to Jive Records, part of the Zomba Group. Four albums and a “Best of” compilation album were all released to critical acclaim over the next few years making Ruby a household name

This period went on to spawn the hits ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’, ‘If You’re Ready’ (Come Go With Me) and in the American R’n’B chart, the Number 1 hit single ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ – one of less than ten British records to achieve this! It was at this time that she also released her hit album ‘The Motown Songbook’ on which she performed with some of the truly great stars of that era – The Four Tops, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin etc. To date, Ruby has released 17 albums plus the BBC’s ‘Live From Glastonbury’, as well as appearing on releases by the likes of Brian Ferry, UB40, Steve Winwood and Mick Jagger. She is also one of the main singers in Jools Holland’s R&B Orchestra, and features on many tracks on his albums.

The Big Wolf Band @ The Studio, Nantwich View map - The Studio Permanent link

The Big Wolf Band

Big Wolf is a talented and fearless performer drawing inspiration from Hendrix, SRV, Clapton, Green, Gallagher and many more. His philosophy is simple - “music is a free entity and will go where it needs to” - this is true on the stage or in the studio. Spontaneous improvised breaks, dynamic highs and lows, bringing a song down to a whisper before exploding with energy and power. His music creates an old school feel, something which the industry has lost along the way. Original songs from blues through to rock all with that unique Big Wolf feel, backed by an outstanding band Big Wolf delivers every time! If you want a band that can capture the imagination, then look no further!

Vavoom! @ The Railway, Nantwich View map - The Railway Permanent link

Vavoom!

High-octane rock ’n’ rollers Vavoom! have built up a strong following during the past 10 years or so, and have become known for delivering a fast-paced set of tunes spanning a number of decades.

Their style could be described as having a rock ’n’ roll core peppered with swing and jazz. They promise a high-octane set of rockabilly tunes inspired by The Stray Cats, early Elvis and the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

A career highlight for them was being asked by Sir Bob Geldof to support his band at the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival in 2002.

The band was formed by guitarist Andy Boote aka Booty.
Vince ‘The Viper’ Whitmore was added as drummer, and the final recruit was Chris Large, Peter Wilson auctioneer by day and double-slap bassist by night.

Together they bring sets of hot rod rock ’n’ roll and rockabilly delivered in style on demonic drums, banging double bass and growling Gretsch guitar.

Booty remains humble on the band’s broad appeal - “If it’s done right, everyone likes it,” he said; “It’s got an energy and enthusiasm that has got lost somewhere. People have forgotten how to play that style of music or it’s ended up underground.”

Free At Last @ The Railway, Nantwich View map - The Railway Permanent link

Free At Last

Free at Last were formed in 1982 under the name Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam featured three of the current members, Jak (guitar/vocals), Shane (guitar) and Mick (drums) until Dave joined on bass in 1994.

Uncle Sam's set contained a few original songs plus covers by such classic acts as ZZ Top, Pat Travers and of course Free. All the guys in the band have always had a great passion for the music of Free, so in 1996 when deciding to create a tribute there was only one choice who it would be.

Since then they have gone from strength to strength headlining at Bill Flynn's Free Convention and playing many of the top venues around the country, universally agreed to be the best Free and Bad Company tribute around.

With the original Bad Company reforming to promote their Anthology 2cd set, Paul Rodgers releasing solo albums and joining Queen as their singer for a world tour, it only serves to prove sustained interest in what the band are trying to recreate.

So for a show of 70's style red hot blues influenced, soul stealing ROCK the choice must be FREE AT LAST!

Della and The Fellas have one of the best female rock vocalists in the area and often play on the metal side of classic rock. They are Della (vocals), T Demarre (that fella on geetar), Trig (Bass) and Paul Cregg (drums).

Trig and Della are Kiss fans - "probably the biggest Kiss fans in the world"! Trig has played in a number of touring bands such as Bi Jovi and he brings not only his musical talents as a bass player but his unique ability to sing higher than someone who can sing really really high. He does this by contorting his knap sack in odd ways. Its a marvellous thing to behold!

Della was the lead vocalist for High Risk, Sin Sity and Vena Cava and is back to rock the world in D&TF. She had major critical success in Vena Cava and hopes this foray back into the rock scene will be just as cool. She still has the ace voice and has new tattoos to sport at gigs around the area!

T Demarre plays guitar and that's that really. His inspiration comes from Kings X and more recently Nick Drake. Some may know him from his time with Junkyard Dogs.

Paul is a haaauge Iron Maiden fan and sings the occasional harmony vocal.

A female vocalist and a concotion of great rock from the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, make Della and The Fellas an enticing brew of entertainment.

This is a free gig!

Stayin' Alive

The Bee Gees were indisputably one of the most popular recording acts of all time. Legendary is a word seldom applicable to pop groups, but one deservedly earned by the Bee Gees.

Their uncanny resemblance has to be seen to be believed and has gained them the respect and admiration of many corporate clients such as Warner Leisure Hotels, P&O Cruises, Park Resorts, Butlin's, Haven Holidays and Bollywood Director Gurinder Chadha.

“One of the most convincing and utterly outstanding tribute bands I have ever come across in all my years as a Stage reviewer. Stayin’ Alive is the only Bee Gees tribute band I have seen that cuts the mustard in a live situation. Compelling viewing, given the lookalike quality and a sheer delight to listen to, Stayin’ Alive are the definitive Bee Gees tribute band. In my view, they have no equal.” - The Stage Newspaper, 2011, Mark Ritchie.
