Slug @ The Brunswick, Crewe View map - The Brunswick Permanent link

Slug

SLUG were spawned out of The Slow & Easy Jam night at Lostock Gralam, Northwich in the Summer of 2011. The original line up was Zeke Vocals, Al Slug and Mike Slug on Guitars, Nik Slug on Bass and Paul Slug on Drums. After frantic rehearsals they performed their first set at the Moss Farm Festival, Northwich in the August of 2011. They knew then that there was chemistry. They received a great response from the crowd. As their reputation grew the gigs started to come in. The highlight was playing the Slow Fest and the infamous Thunder Sprint Gig at Northwich Memorial Hall on the same day.

Paul Slug left the band and was replaced by Colin Tolley. the band was stable for about a year and then there was a major shift. Nik and Al left the band just leaving Zeke and Mike out of the original line up. Nik was replaced by Paul Noden on the bass guitar. Al's position was axed as they decided to go out as a four piece. Shortly after Col decided he wanted to change direction and play the guitar so he formed his own outfit called the John Colins Band. It wasn't long before they found the perfect replacement drummer in Colin Alltree.

SLUG play classic rock covers also glam rock, rock n roll and modern day. There is something in their set for everyone. They pride themselves on their performance giving 110% every time.

Don't miss this!!


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.”

John Colins Band

The John Colins Band love playing the music that people love but that no-one else plays!

The John Colins Band (or JCB as they are becoming known throughout the Cheshire and North West music circuit) are a good time, band playing classic dance tunes.

They make music that should get you singing, dancing and having a great time.

They rock up covers from the 60's to now.

From the Rolling Stones to Pink, Radiohead to R.E.M they cover a vast genre of songs. The common feature - you will rarely hear a local gigging band playing them.

The John Colins Band was formed when frontman Colin and guitarist John decided they were bored playing the same old tunes that other bands play so picked out some good old down to earth dancing tunes.

They invited Jonny T and Stephen T to join as the rhythm section and Stephen W as a third guitarist. His addition means Colin can come onto the dancefloor and help you have a great time interacting with the music.

Come down and see them - you will enjoy it!

Uli John Roth @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Uli Jon Roth

+ Black Country Community


ULI JON ROTH
Though he doesn't get nearly as much credit as Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore, Uli Jon Roth helped lay the groundwork for neo-classical metal with his lead guitar work for German hard rock icons the Scorpions during the '70s. Roth's playing owed an obvious debt to Jimi Hendrix, but the elegance of his lead lines, the fluidity of his phrasing, and his use of alternate scales learned from classical training all helped push him into another realm entirely. Upon leaving the Scorpions in 1978, Roth embarked on a solo career that found him exploring his psychedelic and neo-classical influences to a degree that would have been impossible with his former band.

Roth formed his own band named Electric Sun, which released three albums and after Electric Sun, he entered a new phase of creative work, composing four symphonies and two concertos, and sometimes performing with symphony orchestras throughout Europe.

The G3 European tour of 1998 featured Roth playing with Joe Satriani and Michael Schenker. The tour show at London Wembley Arena also featured a jam with Brian May.

Roth appeared in concert with the Scorpions in again 2006 and on several tours afterwards.

In 2015, Uli Jon Roth released a 2-CD studio album entitled Scorpions Revisited, in which Roth revisited his personal favourites from the early Scorpions period.

Slug

SLUG were spawned out of The Slow & Easy Jam night at Lostock Gralam, Northwich in the Summer of 2011. The original line up was Zeke Vocals, Al Slug and Mike Slug on Guitars, Nik Slug on Bass and Paul Slug on Drums. After frantic rehearsals they performed their first set at the Moss Farm Festival, Northwich in the August of 2011. They knew then that there was chemistry. They received a great response from the crowd. As their reputation grew the gigs started to come in. The highlight was playing the Slow Fest and the infamous Thunder Sprint Gig at Northwich Memorial Hall on the same day.

Paul Slug left the band and was replaced by Colin Tolley. the band was stable for about a year and then there was a major shift. Nik and Al left the band just leaving Zeke and Mike out of the original line up. Nik was replaced by Paul Noden on the bass guitar. Al's position was axed as they decided to go out as a four piece. Shortly after Col decided he wanted to change direction and play the guitar so he formed his own outfit called the John Colins Band. It wasn't long before they found the perfect replacement drummer in Colin Alltree.

SLUG play classic rock covers also glam rock, rock n roll and modern day. There is something in their set for everyone. They pride themselves on their performance giving 110% every time.
