Late last year the band decided it was time to go back to the studio and record a brand new CD which is now ready for release. “The Dublin Sessions” will feature 16 newly recorded tracks and includes some old favourites & classics that the lads wanted to get down on disc…The Leaving of Liverpool, Schooldays Over, Pub with No Beer, Rambling Rover, Hand Me Down My Bible and some scorching tunes from Gerry O’Connor: Billy in The Low Ground / The Temperance Reel and many more.

This year, 2017, sees the band celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day period with a 16 date March UK Tour. It promises to be one hell of a party! Make sure you don’t miss out!

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.

Della & The Fellas

Della and The Fellas have one of the best female rock vocalists in the area and often play on the metal side of classic rock. They are Della (vocals), T Demarre (that fella on geetar), Trig (Bass) and Paul Cregg (drums).

Trig and Della are Kiss fans - "probably the biggest Kiss fans in the world"! Trig has played in a number of touring bands such as Bi Jovi and he brings not only his musical talents as a bass player but his unique ability to sing higher than someone who can sing really really high. He does this by contorting his knap sack in odd ways. Its a marvellous thing to behold!

Della was the lead vocalist for High Risk, Sin Sity and Vena Cava and is back to rock the world in D&TF. She had major critical success in Vena Cava and hopes this foray back into the rock scene will be just as cool. She still has the ace voice and has new tattoos to sport at gigs around the area!

T Demarre plays guitar and that's that really. His inspiration comes from Kings X and more recently Nick Drake. Some may know him from his time with Junkyard Dogs.

Paul is a haaauge Iron Maiden fan and sings the occasional harmony vocal.

A female vocalist and a concotion of great rock from the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, make Della and The Fellas an enticing brew of entertainment.

Artizan @ The Cosey Club, Haslington View map - The Cosey Club 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 the present.
Expect tracks from the likes of BonJovi, Fleetwood Mac, Stereophonics, Tears For Fears, Kings Of Leon, Journey, Van Hale ... The list goes on!

The bands formula is simple - with the rawest organic methods (drums, bass, two guitars and a voice), can they play a set that others dare not spoil (with respect of course!)? The 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, Urban Gorilla, to Stereotonics and The Dick & Dom Show (really!).

"Ladies and Gentlemen in light of recent activities within the MH camp the engine room of the outfit have decided to continue with their quest to conquer county domination. In order to achieve this 4th era of MH the guys are pleased to announce the arrival of Mr David Shaw.

David has years of experience fronting an array of different tribute bands covering Bon Jovi and Europe to mention a few and more recently the frontman with Iron Maiden tribute show ‘Blood Brothers’.

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!

Soft Machine @ Eleven, Sandyford View map - Eleven Permanent link

Soft Machine

Soft Machine enjoyed two distinct phases in its relatively long existence. The band first emerged in the late 1960s as the most distinctive and original of the "Canterbury school" of progressive rock and became one of the pioneering British psychedelic groups. The band then morphed into a jazz-rock fusion act that, despite incessant personnel changes, continued to produce albums until the early 1990s. Though commercially unsuccessful and largely unknown, Soft Machine retains cult status as one of the most influential and intellectual underground bands of the late 1960s and is noteworthy for having launched the solo careers of founding members Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers.

The Canterbury jazz/prog-rockers are back, featuring three of the group's 70s era members: guitarist John Etheridge, drummer John Marshall and bass player Roy Babbington. They're joined by the much in-demand sax, flute and keyboard player Theo Travis and play from their extensive recorded catalogue.
