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.


Madama Butterfly @ The Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - The Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Madama Butterfly

Russian State Opera presents Madama Butterfly – One of the most colourful & exotic operas!

Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English subtitles

“Russian State Opera enjoyed a well-deserved standing ovation” - Daily Post



After successful opera season last year, and featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live orchestra with over thirty musicians, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with exquisite production of Madama Butterfly, with a beautiful set and costumes which intensify the emotion in this heart-breaking story.

No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Set in Japan at the turn of the century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy.

Sad and tragic it most certainly is, yet the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world its most sublime and beautiful arias in history - One Fine Day and Love Duet, as well as the Humming Chorus which has been popular with opera-goers for over a century. This touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.

Tickets: £32.50
Concessions: £30.50
Group 20+ (Gallery Only): £20

Prices shown are inclusive of any applicable booking fees. Fee-free booking for Premiere Card Members; Groups of 8+ please call 01270 368 242 to buy fee-free.

Electro 80's @ The Studio, Nantwich View map - The Studio 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.

FREE ENTRY EVENT---FREE ENTRY EVENT---FREE ENTRY EVENT

Open from 8.30pm. LIVE on Stage 9.30pm. Please arrive early as this show is always a FULL house.

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!

That was some years ago and since then Wayne has worked with some of the biggest names in showbiz (Jimmy Cricket to name just one). He has appeared on the showcase show call with ' The Stage' newspaper, who stated that 'Full Stop' are like the up and coming 'Ant and Dec'.

Wayne and ' Full Stop ' are still going strong and continue to make people laugh wherever they go. In 2005 Wayne decided to pursue a solo career as well as the duo and has proved himself to be worthy as a solo artiste.

His blend of vocal capability and humour are a must-see experience for any audience and with his varying range of music there will be something for everyone to enjoy."

Artizan @ The Linley Tavern, Alsager View map - The Linley Tavern Permanent link

Artizan

Artizan was formed in October 2012.

The band was formed to bring a high-octane rock show to the local scene, playing popular anthems spanning from 70’s to modern hard anthems.

Expect tracks from the likes of Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Stereophonics, Tears For Fears, Kings Of Leon, Journey, Van Halen... The list goes on!!

The bands question wass simple - with the rawest organic ingredients (drums, bass, two guitars and a voice) can they play a set that others dare not spoil (with respect of course!)? Their positive answer was down to the ethos 'playing the easy tracks is simply not good enough anymore'. Naturally the odd track here and there needs to be a dance floor filler - The band understands, this is a must - but the band needed to stand out and the tracks they choose have been carefully selected to leave you remembering that hit of the 80’s that takes you back to your school days or a mad night out!!!

The show includes a big sound and lights with exceptional musicianship with a goal to capture your attention with nothing but live instruments.
Each member of the band have been involved in past live music projects from AB/CD (probably the best AC/DC tribute there ever was), Muthahumbucker (a remarkable rock covers band), Urban Gorilla (classic rock and blues at its best) to Stereotonics and The Dick & Dom Show (for real!)

Rivers, Kidd and The Crow @ Tom's Tap and Brewhouse, Crewe View map - Tom's Tap and Brewhouse Permanent link

Rivers & Kidd

Tom's Halloween Party with Rivers and Kidd.

Rivers and Kidd have developed their own unique style, with original material and new interpretations of well known songs.

It was during the recording of the CD Different Skies that Martin Rivers met Jaqi Kidd, rekindling a friendship that began many years ago. There was an immediate creative spark that came from a common interest in mind body and spirit. Out of this meeting came synergy, where the whole became greater the the sum of the parts; and a new musical partnership was born.
Martin Rivers was an actual punk back in the late 1970's playing guitar with The Uninvited. They were best known for the track “Doing the East Berlin”, which can be found on the compilation LP “Cry Havoc”, which was released on Slip Records. It is now a sought after collectors item. He then went on to become a founding member of Tower Struck Down before departing to pursue different musical interests.

Jaqi Kidd was lead singer in the band Lynx. She has recently returned to the music scene after taking time out and is currently writing new material. She is a holistic therapist and a practitioner of Reiki and Qigong. Jaqi is keen to take Rivers and Kidd to the next level and her voice brings soul and depth to their music.

It was at the first Crewe Steampunk Convivial in 2016 that Rivers & Kidd were introduced to the world of Steampunk. This opened a whole new world of exciting possibilities that they wholeheartedly embraced; and this is adding a new visual dynamic to their stage show. They played The 2017 Crewe Steampunk Convivial with Jasper the Steampug who unashamedly stole the show!

Rivers and Kidd have recently joined forces with ace drummer The Crow to become a Steampunk acoustic power trio.

£10.00 (includes pizza from Jordy's and first drink.
Fancy dress optional (there will be prizes!).
