Kira Mac

Kira Mac is a young singer-songwriter from Staffordshire. Self-taught on guitar from the age of 13, Kira has always written songs and performed at many different venues across the UK from festivals to pubs and clubs, but always keeping it Country.

She won her hometown talent competition, 'Newcastle's Got Talent' at age 16, then progressed onto national competitions such as 'Open Mic UK', 'Britain Does Variety' and 'Festival For Stars', reaching the final in all of them.

She took all the experience from those competitions and began to write more of her own songs and build herself as a performer.

Kira currently gigs almost every weekend at pubs, clubs and bars whilst studying Music at the British Institute of Modern Music in Manchester. She is also currently working on a number of original songs for her EP that is going to be released later this year.

Limehouse Lizzy @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Limehouse Lizzy

...Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music's Hardest Working UK Bands List' -Billboard Magazine 2011.

Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest & most popular performers.

They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society in December 2011, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.

Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away last year.

In 2012 the band's European tour continued to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott. They went on to appear in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.

Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like ”Whisky in the Jar” and “Black Rose”, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Sarah” and many others we’ve come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.

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 Linley Tavern, Alsager View map - The Linley Tavern 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.”

Phil Haley and his Comments @ Coppenhall Working Mens Club, Crewe View map - Coppenhall Working Mens Club Permanent link

Phil Haley and his Comments

After being told time and time again of his resemblance to the late great Bill Haley, Phil decided to put together a group of musicians to form the band 'Phil Haley and his Comments'.

The first to join him was Saxophone player, Allen Paris, and together they set out to build a Rock 'n' Roll stage show that would become one of the most requested performances to come out of the United Kingdom, spreading throughout Europe, and as far away as Australia.

Leeds based Double Bass player Martyn Savage became the third member of the band. The trio then set out to find a drummer to provide the back beat to the music they were so keen to create. Brian Nichols appeared, and his unique style of drumming became the backbone of the bands' music, setting them on the road to becoming one of today's top Rock 'n' Roll tribute bands.

Together the four members of the band began to create a unique style and sound, writing their own songs as well as covering some of the greatest Rock and Roll numbers ever to be written and performed by Bill Haley and the Comets.

After five years of hard work, dedication, and performances up and down the length of the country, Phil Haley and his Comments began to build up a following for their particular style of music further afield. Tour dates in Norway, Finland, France, Germany and Holland - the rest of Europe soon followed.

Today, the foursome have just returned from a successful tour of Australia, where they also recorded their debut CD 'Everybody Needs to Rock', containing ten original songs written by members of the band, plus four covers from Bill Haley's original set.

Don't miss your chance to see and hear this unique tribute band perform live, giving you a taste of the authentic style and sound of the original Rock 'n' Roll years, proving once and for all that the music of Bill Haley and the Comets will never die.

See you later Alligator!

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.”

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.
