Jam Night @ Bar Seven, Crewe View map - Bar Seven Permanent link

Jam Night

Over 15 years ago was an entity know as Clancy's Jam Night.

It was more than just that however. It united musicians from across the North West and Staffordshire as all styles of music and performance took to the stage.

Bands were formed from it, friendships were made and a more than moderate amount of ale consumed.

Initially hosted by the legendary Pete Johnson (Snakey Jake), it became a hive of burgeoning local talent and people who came just to spectate.

Full PA, Drum kit and back line available. Let's do this...

Hosted by Glyn Sutton of Colossus LIVE

Stayin' Alive @ Coppenhall Working Mens Club, Crewe View map - Coppenhall Working Mens Club Permanent link

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. What other group can claim top five hits in five successive decades, not only as performers but as writers for other artistes?

Bee Gees tribute band Stayin Alive UK recreate the most accurate portrayal of the Brothers Gibb, covering hits from all the decades. 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.

Tickets £6.00
Adults only

They were finalists of the Bloodstock Metal to the Masses Battle of the Bands Competition, and have just released some new material by the way of ‘Osseus Damnum’, a 3 track EP showcasing their revitalised sound.

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!
