Luke Gessner

Luke has 14 years of performance experience, appearing for his first gig at just age 14, following a love for swing handed down from his father, he would often be heard singing the Frank Sinatra classics as a child. It was not long after that Luke could be found treading the boards at the Regent Theatre as part of Jill Clewes Performing Arts, a basis that polished his performance skills and confidence on stage.

Since then Luke completed an A-Level music course at St. Joseph’s College, and so his career came to life. Another performance at the Regent Theatre followed, starring in Little Shop of Horrors as ‘The Plant.’ This would lead to starring as ‘Galileo’ in We Will Rock You, culminating in performing in New York at the Bleecker Street Theatre in musical ‘The Rippers 5.’

Luke now performs a tribute to the Rat Pack throughout the Midlands and North West, as well as his solo covers show which will see him appearing from Cornwall to Scotland on summer season and tours around the UK.

Deano as Phil Collins @ The Fox, Haslington View map - The Fox Permanent link

Deano started out in the music industry at the tender age of 12 performing in his Dad’s family showband. After many successful years touring he decided to try something new and spent the next few years performing on cruise ships and leisure parks both in the UK and abroad. Throughout this time Deano would occasionally sing some of Phil Collins’ classic tracks including ‘Against All Odds’ and ‘Sussudio’ and would often be complimented for his similar tones to Phil Collins. At first Deano never really thought anything of it, but after recording several tracks and listening back he soon began to think his audience could have a point. It wasn’t too long before he decided to give it a go on the tribute circuit and was overwhelmed by the incredible reaction. Deano has worked incredibly hard on his tribute show studying every live performance of Phil Collins and is now considered to be one of the world’s best tribute artistes.

Deano sings all the classic Phil Collins songs from the early years including ‘In The Air Tonight’, ‘Easy Lover’, ‘A Groovy Kind Of Love’, ‘Another Day In Paradise’, ‘One More Night’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ and many more. Each song is carefully crafted to ensure that the vocals are sung accurately and the stage performance is amazingly so like the real Phil Collins. Deano is a true master at performing his hero Phil Collins like no other artist in the UK today.

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!

Electro 80's @ The Cosey Club, Haslington View map - The Cosey 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.

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.

The Bay City Rollers @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Bay City Rollers

In 1974 the world was to witness a new musical phenomenon the like of which had not been seen the days of Elvis and The Beatles. The music of the Bay City Rollers became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers growing up in the mid 70’s. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown.

With Les leading the way, the band’s singles and albums shot to the number spot all over the globe. Massive hits such as ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shang A Lang’, ‘Summer Love Sensation’ and ‘Give A Little Love’ (to name just a few) propelled the band to world-wide superstardom and their trademark Scottish tartan was to be seen everywhere across the planet.

The Bay City Rollers starring Les McKeown is a celebration of those hectic days of Hit songs, Touring, TV Shows and the behind the scenes pandemonium that followed the band everywhere they went. A transformed Les McKeown has come through the extreme highs and lows of life’s great road and he is here to tell us all about it. All the hits songs are there and audiences are promised a fantastic night of fun and nostalgia as they take a trip back to those innocent days of growing up to the sounds of The Bay City Rollers starring Les McKeown.

Scopyons @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Scopyons

SCOPYONS THE UK TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT GERMAN ROCKERS THE SCORPIONS.

So why are they called sCOPYons? Hopefully the capital letters method of spelling the name will explain! They are a COPY of the Scorpions …………Forgive us, but founder member Nige did have to explain this, even to certain intelligent friends and members of the band.

The kindling of The Scopyons were formed in late 2011 when 5 North West based musicians decided to get together a definitive UK based tribute to the great German Rockers The Scorpions. The band spent 9 solid months rehearsing until playing their first full shows in September 2012 and were quickly acknowledged as the premier UK Scorpions tribute and were subsequently offered the opportunity to go and play in Munich, Germany alongside Scorpions guitarist Matthias Jabs at the 5th Anniversary of his MJ Guitars Store in march 2013. Things have gone from strength to strength from there on in with bigger and better gig offers and over 8500 Facebook likes to boot.

Scopyons have a leaning toward the post Matthias jabs era (1978 Lovedrive up to the present day) All the BIG hits like Rock You Like A Hurricane, Big City Nights, No One Like You, Holiday etc are there but we have added classic Uli Jon Roth era songs like We’ll Burn The Sky, In Trance & Pictured Life to the set now to appease the old school fans. They really could not have chosen a more perfect time to unleash the UK’s first full 5 piece definitive Scorpions tribute band.

The Whitney Houston Show @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

The Whitney Houston Show

Belinda Davids was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and began performing professionally at the age of 14. She has never had vocal training and is blessed with a 4 octave vocal range, and hence the ability to sing any genre. Her musical heart has always been R&B; Belinda’s inspirations as a child were Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson and the one artist whom she still, to this day, honours in every show she performs – Whitney Houston.

In 2013 Davids snagged a last minute audition for the brand new Showtime Australia production The Greatest Love of All – The Whitney Houston Show and beat out over 15,000 other applicants to take on the challenging lead role. Taking more than 80,000 tickets to date, the show has been an instant success with Davids as the marquee star.

She continues to tour with the show internationally, keeping alive the music and spirit of her own musical idol - the late, great Whitney Houston.

“Belinda Davids doesn’t only have the voice, she also has the charm – in bundles.” – ToNight, 2013

“Belinda Davids is the stage goddess of your dreams – and the world has started to take note…” – Citizen Newspaper, 2015

"Her vocal ability is the real deal!” – TrueLove, 2015

Beardsmith @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven Permanent link

Beardsmith

Beardsmith are a six piece family band from Cheshire, consisting of Neil, four sons, Graham, Gary, Ged, Gil and one sister, Alice.

The band have been together for 12 years, firstly as a 4 piece, which included Neil, Graham, Gary, and Ged, and then changed to a 6 piece in 2011. Even though Gil does not appear at every show he is still a permanent member of the band.

Since the band started, Beardsmith have aimed to be the very best they can be, which is the thought that is behind every live performance and every song they write and record. They are currently traveling the length and breadth of the country performing to packed venues of all shapes and sizes as well as writing and recording.

The music they write is a mixture of all the types of music that they love, which includes the driving guitars of the big American rock bands mixed with the vocals of bands like Queen, plus a hint of Brit rock and a flavour of bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.

6.00pm early show!

Slug @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven 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!!
Evening show 9.30pm.
