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 Emperors Of The North @ Albert's Corner, Crewe View map - Albert's Corner Permanent link

The Emperors Of The North

Once upon a time....way back in the annals of time....before Adam were a lad.... as they say in Yorkshire... a guitarist wandered into a magic cave, (actually it was a dry dock at the Venetian Marina but hey, who cares !!).

The guitarist enquired of the keeper of this magic cave, “I say old chap, can you paint my bottom black”.

Before he had a chance to reply with a well chosen witticism, the guitarist spotted an ancient document, roughly pinned to the cave wall which contained ghostly images of people unknown from distant lands.

(Actually it was a faded photo of a local rock band called Sinner)

“I say old chap, do you play in a band” said the guitarist. “Oh yes” said the keeper of the cave....” do you? “. “Not at the moment “came the guitarist’s reply.

What happened next has been lost in the dim and distant past, but what we do know is that eventually the guitarist and the keeper of the magic cave discovered another, secret, magic cave, within the magic cave (otherwise known as a loft) and it was from within this place that strange sounds began to escape across the marina on a Saturday afternoon.

Sounds made by various strange and mystical instruments which in their own turn and been fashioned by ancient and revered craftsmen wizards called Fender, Marshall, Vox, Peavey and not forgetting ....Gibson.

As time passed other mysterious persons came along to contribute to these strange sounds (otherwise known as music) and eventually a passable kind of pleasant listening started to emerge and attract the attention of unwary passersby.

Not only were there guitarists in this happy band but bass players, singers and yes.....even drummers came to join in the throng....but alas...none stayed for too long... UNTIL NOW THAT IS!!

CAN WE PRESENT FOR YOUR PLEASURE AND ENTERTAINMENT….

Rock covers from Emperors of the North!

Rivers & Kidd

The Rivers and Kidd Spooky Terror Show!

An evening of music and dance fit to raise the dead!
It's a grave business having this much fun, so dig up those long lost friends and sink your teeth like a starving werewolf into the ghastly goings on down at THE TAP ROOM of TERROR!


Martin Rivers and Jaqi Kidd are musicians and songwriters based in the Northwest of England. They both arrived on the music scene during the punk and new wave movement of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Martin was in The Uninvited and Jaqi in another band by the name of Syringe. Although they had this musical background in common, it was only many years later that their paths crossed while attending a friend’s gig.

Martin was working on his own solo album at the time and drafted Jaqi in to contribute backing vocals. However, it soon became apparent that there was considerable mileage in a more collaborative approach; and as a consequence they joined forces as Rivers and Kidd. By sheer coincidence the first Crewe Steampunk Convivial was in town at the release of Martin’s Album “Different Skies”. Both the look and ethos of this movement appealed to Rivers and Kidd. They enthusiastically embraced it, and in the process gained a whole new audience.

Rivers and Kidd have gone on to play several festivals throughout the UK and are consolidating their position with the release of a four track EP: “Beyond the Veil”. They are currently touring the new release together with songs from Martin Rivers’ solo album.

Blood Brothers

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning Blood Brothers. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail).

The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

‘The definitive Mrs Johnstone’ (Manchester Evening News) Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role for the final time. Having first played her in 1997 and on numerous tours, Lyn played Mrs Johnstone in the final West End performances at the Phoenix Theatre in 2012. She has also starred in the UK tour of Cabaret in 2013 as Fraulein Schneider, in Boy George’s musical Taboo and in Footloose - the Musical.

Blood Brothers @ The Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - The Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Blood Brothers

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning Blood Brothers. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail).

The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

‘The definitive Mrs Johnstone’ (Manchester Evening News) Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role for the final time. Having first played her in 1997 and on numerous tours, Lyn played Mrs Johnstone in the final West End performances at the Phoenix Theatre in 2012. She has also starred in the UK tour of Cabaret in 2013 as Fraulein Schneider, in Boy George’s musical Taboo and in Footloose - the Musical.

Aladdinsane - Bowie tribute

Europe’s finest Bowie Tribute!

In the words of theatre goers across the UK - “Paul’s vocals and theatrical movements reflect Bowie’s with disturbing accuracy”.

Whether portraying the 70’s era Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke or Bowie’s 80’s/90’s songs in this totally live show, many who have seen this performance simply called it “Spot on”. The band’s professional musical recreation of every song is highly praised every time they appear.

Paul Henderson first caught national attention on ‘ITV’s Stars In Their Eyes’ during the 90’s. This notoriety saw him widely acknowledged as Europe’s most credible Bowie look and sound-a-like and began the evolution of Aladdinsane to the best Bowie Tribute going.

The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars - The Ronnie Scott’s Story: 60th Anniversary Concert

In this, the 60th Anniversary of one of the world’s most iconic music venues, the Ronnie Scott’s All Stars take to the road to celebrate the ‘Ronnie Scott’s Story’.

Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club and combining world class live jazz alongside rare archive photos and video footage, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, take you on a guided, musical tour of this music institution. Set amongst the dive bars and jazz juke joints of London’s Soho, we hear about the desperate hand-to-mouth finances of the early years and the frequent police raids. We hear how Ronnie’s became neutral ground within rife gang territory and their scrapes with gangsters including the Krays who were rumoured to have taken Ronnie and Pete “for a little drive”! Life at Ronnie’s is evocatively re-imagined through tales of the club’s past visitors, from pop stars, film stars and politicians to comedians and royalty, but above all, the musicians.

Featuring classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s, alongside projected images and footage, and tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians and police raids, ‘The Ronnie Scott’s Story is a glimpse into this unique world and its incredible history.

Hosted and performed by the award-winning Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, led by the Club’s Musical Director, this is a unique evening celebrating the music and history of Ronnie Scott’s and is a must for any music fan.

Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to - The Observer

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!
