Electro 80's @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

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.

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

Friday 27th Oct 2017

Derailed @ The Four Eagles, Crewe View map - The Four Eagles Permanent link

Derailed

DERAILED are a new four-piece rock covers band based in Crewe.

VOCALIST Suzi Venables-Wood ‘Suzi Blue’ brings a new twist to class rock covers. With her powerful and agile vocals, she brings a vocal quality to the band. She takes to stage with enthusiasm and a diverse set list that is sure to have you singing along. Taking inspiration from Muse, Skunk Anansie and No Doubt, she brings a vibrant and fresh sound to the stage.

LEAD GUITARIST Dave Dayman has been playing guitar since the age of nine. His first guitar was a beaten up acoustic and in the beginning he had dreams of playing in a world-dominating heavy metal band (very uncool at the time as it was 1982 and electronic music was the 'in thing'). From that point on he was hooked on anything to do with music, especially the guitar and has always had a passion for rock based music. His taste has grown over the years (age and wisdom do that to you apparently) and his influences include a wide range of artists from Queen and Muse to Band of Skulls and Biffy Clyro, Simple Minds to Early Maiden, Pink Floyd to Free and plenty in between. Dave has played with various bands over the years and loves how music makes him feel... His passion for music is somewhat contagious.

BASSIST Ian 'Hitchy' Hitchinson is a seasoned bass guitarist, formerly of long running local band Bedlam, is now plucking the low strings in this unique female fronted rock band. Originally from Sandbach, he's always been into rock music, and was a biker back in the day. Musically his influences range from The Beatles, Cage the Elephant, Chilli peppers to The Cheeky Girls. Only joking...

DRUMMER Rob Hoggett. Most drummers have an epiphany moment when they realize "That's what I wanna do!" - Rob had a moment while watching an old black and white American sitcom called "I Love Lucy" with the amazing Lucille Ball. In this episode her son, played by Dezi Arnaz Jr, was entered into a drum battle. To get him into shape Lucy had invited no other than Buddy Rich to help out. Rob had no idea who Buddy was at this time, but when they set up 2 Ludwig Black Oyster kits in Lucy's living room and the two of them started beating the sh*t out of them, swapping kits without dropping a beat! Rob was completely mesmerized and totally hooked. Rob loves drumming, he has tried his hand at most styles. Over the years he has been in dozens of bands, both covers and originals and played with hundreds of musicians.

This is a free gig, 9ish start.


The Train Set @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

The Train Set

Colossus presents Friday Live!

Back in the mid to late eighties The Train Set emerged from the Crewe/Winsford indie music scene and started to make an impact on the Manchester and Liverpool gig circuit as well as the national music press. They released two 12" singles and performed at venues across the country. The mini tour that they did in Sept 1988 to promote the first single included gigs at Dingwalls and the Astoria in London as well as the Hacienda in Manchester on October 10th when they were also interviewed by Piccadilly Radio. The nucleus of the band, Clive Jones (vocals), Andy Boote (guitars) and Mark Shaw (Bass) met at school, became friends and got into music. After going to gigs together and realising that they had the same influences the nucleus of the band was formed. They recruited Adam Halford (drums) from Winsford and Dave Hassall from Chester (keyboards) and soon became the ultra tight unit that was eventually signed by the Manchester Playhard label set up by Dave Haslam (renowned Manchester DJ) and Nathan McGough (son of Roger McGough the poet). She's Gone/Untouchable/Sink or Swim was their debut recording in 1988 followed by Hold On/Harped On About You/All Blown Over in 1989. They were managed by Nathan McGough (also manager of The Happy Mondays) and gigged all over the UK including a national tour with the Happy Mondays and support slots with the likes of James at the London Astoria. They featured in both the NME and Melody Maker with interviews and features by Stuart Maconie and Robin Denslow. Their debut single She's Gone was single of the week in the NME and the Manchester Evening News in August 1988, and they were described as 'rather wonderful' by the the Record Mirror.

Red Mick @ Coppenhall Working Mens Club, Crewe View map - Coppenhall Working Mens Club Permanent link

Red Mick

Since the summer of 1985 Simply Red have taken the British single and album charts by storm.

From the early northern soul of Money's Too Tight (To Mention) and Holding Back The Years through the sophisticated Motown groove of It's Only Love and If You Don't Know Me By Now to Nineties pop driven classics such as Stars and Fairground. Simply Red are simply one of the most successful British chart acts of the last twenty years.

From 1985's Picture Book to 2007's Stay, now is your chance to hear Mick Hucknall’s back catalogue faithfully recreated by Red Mick, the only Simply Red tribute in the country performing all the top 10 hits, including You Make Me Feel Brand New.

Red Mick is the only Simply Red tribute used by Pontins Holidays, Grosvenor Casinos, Jumpin’Jaks, Chicago Rock Café, Ocean Village Cruises, Arena Pubs and Gala Casinos.



“Red Mick is a superb tribute artiste whose visual and vocal likeness to Mick Hucknall is really quite extraordinary” - THE STAGE MARCH 2002

“On a day of accurate tributes the standard didn’t slip as Red Mick gave us his tribute to Simply Red. Hucknall’s voice cannot be the easiest to impersonate but this performer has it down to a tee. A New Flame and Stars were delivered with easy confidence but the highlight had to be his version of Holding Back The Years, a highly polished performance. If you are looking for a Simply Red tribute, look no further than Red Mick” - THE STAGE FEBRUARY 2003

“One of the major hits of the afternoon was Red Mick, as far as I know the only artist offering a tribute to Mick Hucknall. The flame-haired singer was undoubtedly an icon of the eighties, as well as having one of the best voices and Red Mick does him full justice, especially in his best-known song, Holding Back The Years" - THE STAGE SHOWCALL 2 FEBRUARY 2005

“Amazing sound-alike Mike Bassett certainly made heads swivel with the sheer accuracy of his vocal impression of Mick Hucknall, which is known as Red Mick. This South Wales based tribute king is nothing short of stunning in terms of vocal quality alone. The opening offering from this highly saleable artiste, Money's To TIght Too Mention was enough to convince everyone of the strength and accuracy of the performance" - THE STAGE OCTOBER 2005


Tickets £7.00.
Adults only.

Electro 80's @ Shavington Club, Shavington View map - Shavington Club Permanent link

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.

Nathan Carter

Following on from a 2016 that saw him beat both Beyoncé and Drake to a Number 1 Album in his native Ireland, Country-Pop crossover star Nathan Carter has announced a huge run of UK tour dates for 2017.

As one of Ireland’s biggest live music acts, Nathan is developing into a household name, with tracks from “Stayin’ Up All Night” becoming hits, such as “Wagon Wheel” and “I Wanna Dance”. Enthralling audiences up and down the country, Nathan has firmly become a firm favourite for audiences of all ages.

Now, the charismatic performer has announced 16 extra dates to his tour due to phenomenal demand!

Growing up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air, Nathan was exposed to classic songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton. From the tender age of 4 years old, not only learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan quickly became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys choir where he toured the world and even performed in front of the Pope in Rome.

THE RAGDOLLS is a successful touring theatre show which takes you on a musical journey through the well known career of one of the most successful bands of all time - `Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons`.

With slick choreography and the recogniseable falsesetto this really sets the scene. Acoustic versions of songs are a highlight in this part which show off the diversity and harmonic sounds as once done by the great band themselves.

By the end of the first half you will definitely' hanging on' to your seats and 'beggin' for more!

The second half of the show is truly party time, where all the well famous hits come out such as Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Ragdoll, Walk Like A Man, Grease, and many more...

The show leads up to a truly roof blowing finale where the red jackets come out and the room is electrified with that good old 50's flare with a medley of songs having you dancing and singing in the aisles.

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!


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.”

Derailed @ The Market Tavern, Sandbach View map - The Market Tavern Permanent link

Derailed

DERAILED are a four-piece rock covers band based in Crewe.

VOCALIST Suzi Venables-Wood ‘Suzi Blue’ brings a new twist to class rock covers. With her powerful and agile vocals, she brings a vocal quality to the band. She takes to stage with enthusiasm and a diverse set list that is sure to have you singing along. Taking inspiration from Muse, Skunk Anansie and No Doubt, she brings a vibrant and fresh sound to the stage.

LEAD GUITARIST Dave Dayman has been playing guitar since the age of nine. His first guitar was a beaten up acoustic and in the beginning he had dreams of playing in a world-dominating heavy metal band (very uncool at the time as it was 1982 and electronic music was the 'in thing'). From that point on he was hooked on anything to do with music, especially the guitar and has always had a passion for rock based music. His taste has grown over the years (age and wisdom do that to you apparently) and his influences include a wide range of artists from Queen and Muse to Band of Skulls and Biffy Clyro, Simple Minds to Early Maiden, Pink Floyd to Free and plenty in between. Dave has played with various bands over the years and loves how music makes him feel... His passion for music is somewhat contagious.

BASSIST Ian 'Hitchy' Hitchinson is a seasoned bass guitarist, formerly of long running local band Bedlam, is now plucking the low strings in this unique female fronted rock band. Originally from Sandbach, he's always been into rock music, and was a biker back in the day. Musically his influences range from The Beatles, Cage the Elephant, Chilli peppers to The Cheeky Girls. Only joking...

DRUMMER Rob Hoggett. Most drummers have an epiphany moment when they realize "That's what I wanna do!" - Rob had a moment while watching an old black and white American sitcom called "I Love Lucy" with the amazing Lucille Ball. In this episode her son, played by Dezi Arnaz Jr, was entered into a drum battle. To get him into shape Lucy had invited no other than Buddy Rich to help out. Rob had no idea who Buddy was at this time, but when they set up 2 Ludwig Black Oyster kits in Lucy's living room and the two of them started beating the sh*t out of them, swapping kits without dropping a beat! Rob was completely mesmerized and totally hooked. Rob loves drumming, he has tried his hand at most styles. Over the years he has been in dozens of bands, both covers and originals and played with hundreds of musicians.

Kossoff... The Band Plays On @ Eleven, Sandyford View map - Eleven Permanent link

Kossoff... The Band Plays On

Billed as Kossoff - The Band Plays On..., Terry Slesser has put together a fine ensemble of high-calibre musicians to pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Paul Kossoff.

This is not your regular 'tribute' act, as Terry was vocalist in Kossoffs' post-Free outfit Back Street Crawler for their entire lifespan. This marks the first time since the seventies that Slesser has taken the Back Street Crawler catalogue (and some choice Free tracks) on the road.

Front-man Terry Slesser sure knows how to captivate an audience. He's got some seriously entertaining anecdotes in his armoury which are all delivered with style and panache.
Guitarist John Buckton has the Kossoff sound down to an absolute tee and that's no huge surprise when you consider that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said "If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist."
Buckton has captured the soul and rawness of Koss' playing - Paul Kossoff had his own unique / standout style and it lives on in John Buckton's fretboard.
Also Included in the line-up is former UFO, Wild Horses, Uli Jon Roth and Pat Travers' drummer Clive Edwards.
Dave Chapman on Keyboards and Rick Hunt on bass complete the line up.

Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his music shone through along with his personality ...all brought to life in a show of sheer quality which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist.
