Derailed @ Albert's Corner, Crewe View map - Albert's Corner 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.
Mark Taylor (Elton John, Simple Minds, The Alarm) on keys 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.

+ Long Strung Creatures.

Living legend, Neil Diamond has now retired after an incredible career selling over 100 Million record world-wide.

Neil’s best known and perhaps best loved album, The Jazz Singer, was released in 1981, being the film score to his acting debut alongside Sir Lawrence Olivier.

Diamond fans undoubtedly all have their favourite songs and these will also be in this performance starring John Hylton, but the principal content is the complete Jazz Singer album.

Hello Again, America, Love on the Rocks, Summer Love, The Robert E Lee…to name just a few. No doubt many fans have the album AND The Jazz Singer film on DVD (or VHS video!), so, dust it off, watch that old favourite again so those songs will be fresh in your heart and mind!

Electro 80's

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

Doors 8.30pm. Please arrive early this show is always a FULL house.





Martin Turner @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Martin Turner

'Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash 'WISHBONE GOLD – Spring Tour 2019'.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash Featuring full performance of Wishbone Ash’s classic 1976 album “New England”

Fresh from 2017/18 shows which have featured Wishbone Ash’s seminal albums Argus, There’s the Rub and Wishbone Ash in their entirety, Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages in Spring 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash and perform another classic album – 1976’s New England.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody, Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music’s best loved works and influencing numerous successful bands, resulting in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring British rock acts – its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock music.

Five decades later, the music of the classic line-ups of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new. Classic album releases such as Wishbone Ash, Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans. As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being major ingredients in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound. Martin Turner continues to
perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown.

In recent years Martin Turner has delighted audiences worldwide with his performances of material from the classic periods of Wishbone Ash’s history. Martin’s 2019 touring continues his exploration of the Wishbone Ash catalogue and follows the release of a deluxe 30-disc Wishbone Ash career retrospective CD boxed-set entitled The Vintage Years 1970-1991 as well as Martin Turner’s 2016-recorded 2CD/DVD package The Beauty Of Chaos – Live at the Citadel.

The Spring 2019 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1976’s iconic New England album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights. Released in October 1976 and featuring the celebrated Wishbone Ash “Mark 2” lineup of Martin Turner, Steve Upton, Andy Powell and guitarist Laurie Wisefield (who had joined Wishbone Ash in 1974 replacing original member Ted Turner), New England marked a return to form for Wishbone Ash after the relatively disappointing response to its predecessor Locked In. Recorded using mobile equipment, New England was written and recorded in the loose environment of a basement rehearsal facility set up at Martin Turner’s Connecticut home, resulting in an album that was brimming with live energy. With a mix of powerful rock numbers such as “Runaway” and “Mother of Pearl”, alongside melodic cuts like “Lorelei” and “You Rescue Me”, the album was an instant crowd-pleaser. The band’s twin-guitar hallmark had never sounded so vibrant as on the album’s instrumental showcase “Outward Bound” and New England highlighted all that was great about this muchloved band.

Martin Turner’s Spring 2019 shows will mark the very first time New England has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.

Bernie Marsden @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Bernie Marsden

Bernie is primarily known for his work with Whitesnake having written or co-written with David Coverdale many of the group’s hit songs, such as “Here I Go Again”.

In more recent years, Marsden has toured with his bands Company of Snakes, M3 (both formed with fellow former Whitesnake members Micky Moody and Neil Murray), and performed with Elkie Brooks.

On the Sweden Rock Festival on 10 June 2011 Bernie Marsden played with Whitesnake for the first time since 1981, thus becoming the second of only two former Whitesnake band members who have played with Whitesnake in recent years, the other person being Adrian Vandenberg, who also played with them on the Sweden Rock Festival.

In the last ten years, Marsden has been involved in very different projects. The most unusual being two engagements at the National Theatre in London for Nickolas Hytner’s productions of Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” and “Henry the V” in collaboration with Simon Webb. Also, he appeared in ZDF television in Germany for their production of “Frankie”, a six-part TV special. After this, Marsden has worked alongside Robert Plant, Paul Weller, Ian Paice and Jon Lord for The Sunflower Jam charity concert in London. Bernie also played Guitar with Ringo Starr and his son Zak Starkey in Monte Carlo. Most recently, he has been playing and writing for guitar virtuoso Joe Bonamassa.


Plus support from Big Wolf Band - a rock blues powerhouse, with a distinctive guitar style and an array of well self penned tracks, backed by the talents of Mick Jeynes(bass), Tim Jones(drums) and Paul Brambani(keys) the band delivers every time. Now featuring Zoe Green on vocals the band delivers energy filled sets, Spontaneous improvised breaks, dynamic highs and lows, bringing a song down to a whisper before exploding with energy and power that capture the true meaning of live music!

“If you could wrap up everything revered about the era of music they call Classic Rock, you will find it in Big Wolf Band’s album called “A Rebel’s Story”. The band not only embraces traditional blues, but they also blend the genre with classic rock influences. Combine that with fine vocals and deft guitar riffs that weave magic throughout 13 original tracks, and what you have is an album containing a treasure trove of blues-rock that has been produced with artistic attention and care – not one bit overdone. Without a doubt, “A Rebel’s Story” belongs on the playlist for the next road trip of any blues-rock music lover" - DJ Jordan, BluesMusicFan.com

After the band’s split, John Power released three solo albums, and played intermittently with the reformed La’s.

A decade later in 2012, the bands original line-up reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) for ‘Troubled Times’. The reinvigorated band produced an album full of the anthemic, melodic and beautifully written songs for which they have always been loved by their fervent fanbase.

With Founding member Pete Wilkinson retiring from the band in 2013. John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar – also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) were joined by former La’s member Jay Lewis on bass.

At the end of 2015 Cast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album ‘All Change’, with two sold out shows at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall where they played the record in it’s entirety accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

The bands Latest album ‘Kicking Up The Dust’ was released on 21st April 2017. The album, Cast’s sixth studio album, was recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and was produced by resident studio legend – Alistair Groves.

Labelled ‘The Who of the 90’s’, Noel Gallagher once described watching Cast play live as “a religious experience.”

Fine Lines @ The Oddfellows Arms, Nantwich View map - The Oddfellows Arms Permanent link

Fine Lines

Fine Lines is a project started by singer/songwriter David Boardman in 2016. A long time lover of all things folky and rootsy, David has been writing acoustic based music for many years and has now collected those songs under the banner of Fine Lines.

Influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan & The Band, John Martyn and Mercury era Rod Stewart and also modern day troubadours such as Ray La Montagne and Ryan Adams, these stripped back, mature songs deal in heartbreak and soul baring. Centered around the core duo of David and co-vocalist Zoe Blythe and accompanied by a cast of strolling players, these fine songs shine through.

In their short time together, Fine Lines have already played with the likes of folk giants Merry Hell, Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast and John Power (The La’s/Cast). The band’s John Kettle produced debut album ‘Hour Of Need’ is OUT NOW on Parade Recordings and they are playing live throughout the UK.

Chris Helme @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Chris Helme

Appearing with his band, Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ is still rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics ‘Love Is The Law’ and ‘Blinded By The Sun’ – songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance. Present day societal context may well in fact mirror those times but the man himself, now, appears cut from an entirely different cloth.

Helmes has an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it’s his latest offering The Rookery’s knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme’s keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.

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!
