Revamp

ReVamp are a five piece covers band from Cheshire. The line up is Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Sax and Drums.

The current line up came together in January 2014. All the band members are experienced musicians having played in other bands before. At the start of the year Claire joined the band having moved from York to Chester and at the same time Tracey decided to join as though she had played in big bands she had not played in a "rock n roll" band. Claire is a great singer and with the support of Tracey providing backing vocals and sax, the band was really able to think about playing covers in their own style. The emphasis being to try to find music that was good to dance to and also good to listen to and to avoid too many cliche numbers. With the tight guitar work of Nick, solid drums of Martin, and steady bass of Keith the new Revamp has started making its mark and have been well received with their mixture of funky rock and blues.

Individually and as a band they produce the looks and sounds of the real thing so closely that -

We quote:

“Having The BJE perform here was, without question, like having the actual stadium band in my club”

“The difference between watching the BJE and any other Bon Jovi tribute band is that with other bands you realize they are just a tribute but as you watch The BJE you forget they are a tribute they are just that good”.

"You could almost be fooled into thinking that this band was the real thing".

"Quite simply a mirror image of the man himself"

" Have you seen this guy he looks so much like Jon Bon Jovi it's freaky man" - Chad Kroeger (Nickelback)

“The best tribute I've ever seen” – JON BON JOVI.

Tony has been performing the music of Bon Jovi for nearly 20 years now and the band were the first to be asked to perform on the US New Jersey tribute album, “Garden State of Mind”. He is the only UK Bon Jovi tribute band frontman to actually be asked to appear on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast show with the real Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora.

They were told by BBC Radio 1 DJ and TV personality, Chris Evans, that “they were the best tribute band he had ever seen” and were also asked to appear live on Chris’s show. The band has a significant fan base not to mention Tony's various TV and film appearances, including ITV's International Stars and their Doubles hosted by Dale Winton, BBC's Doctors series and British film Kinky Boots.

This band played at The Limelight under their former name of By Jovi & packed the place out, selling out their gigs three times a year for many years! They put on a fantastic show both musically and visually!

This is a very special afternoon at Street! They are thrilled to welcome their hugely respected friend, the Mercury Music nominated John Bramwell, to Nantwich.

John has been the frontman and singer/songwriter of the band I Am Kloot since its birth in 1999. In that time they have garnered major critical acclaim; retained a cult status; and developed a legion of devout fans dedicated to spreading the gospel of I Am Kloot. Among their many highlights they picked up a Mercury Music Nomination for their album Sky at Night and a number 10 entry into the UK Album Charts for the studio album, Let It All In.

Now John is taking a break to perform an exclusive set of intimate solo gigs. Having been all over the world with the band over the last few years, playing some of the most prestigious venues around, John is now taking the chance to go back to his roots and entertain smaller audiences.

John's forthcoming album, ‘Leave Alone the Empty Spaces,’ is due for release in October.

The Mercury Prize nominee will be performing songs from this forthcoming album as well as many I Am Kloot classics.
With these recordings and a bag of classic songs and great stories, John Bramwell brings poetry, great guitar playing, a beautiful, unique voice and a just a little chaos...!

This promises to be a very special show for fans old and new.

John will be joined onstage by Dave Fidler on bass and harmonies.

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 for St Lukes Hospice.

Vavoom! @ The Cosey Club, Haslington View map - The Cosey Club 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.”

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!
