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.”

Kicking off The Nantwich Jazz Festival Weekend, The Studio presents

ELECTRO 80's

The Eighties were a time of radical changes in both music and fashion.

In the aftermath of the punk revolution, daring New Romantics embraced developing sounds and technologies to transform the music industry forever.

Gary Numan, The Human League, Kraftwerk & Depeche Mode all helped to create a totally new genre of music; Electronica or Synth-pop, a futuristic new sound that almost seemed like science fiction at the time.

Electro 80's pay tribute to this era, and have lovingly recreated songs by the afore mentioned pioneers (and many more), to create a live entertainment show that is sure to transport everyone from this generation, back to the days of underground club scenes and even school discos.

Unforgettable classics like Fade to Grey and Just Can't Get Enough are performed alongside lesser-known tracks, which will jog your memory in a nostalgic show that is both visually and acoustically stunning.

FREE ADMISSION - The Studio have decided to do this one for Charity, so it's FREE Admission, with donations on the door welcome.

Doors 8.00pm. Please arrive early this show is always a FULL house.





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.

King King

A FANTASTIC TRIPLE BILL!!

King King
Soulful, dynamic, blues-rock from Glasgow. - featuring Alan Nimmo. Winners ‘Best Band’ - The British Blues Awards 2012, 2013 & 2014.
King King are on a roll. Faced with their army of fans and armfuls of awards, it’s hard to believe that Alan Nimmo (vocals/guitar), Lindsay Coulson (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keys) have come so far, so fast. As Henry Yates of Classic Rock Blues notes, “King King are the hottest draw in British blues-rock”. Yet there’s no smoke and mirrors behind their five-year rise: just killer songs, performed with true passion, by a fist-tight lineup.


Rebecca Downes
Birmingham-based Rebecca and her band are a ‘must see’ live act that often leaves newcomers simply blown away by the power of the performance.


Emma & The Wolf
Emma and the Wolf deliver the very best in blues, rock and boogie-woogie. Both Emma Jonson and Jonathan Earp are avid lovers of the blues.

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.

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!

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!
