The definitive guide to live music and gigs in the Crewe area.
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 Carl Hitchen played in previous bands with two members of Derailed before, local band Bedlam with Suzi and Ian and the Typhoons with Ian. He's played in loads of different bands and different styles of music over the last 15 years, stood in for other bands and helped out when the drummer wasn't available. He says that he 'wings it' most of the time as he's not allowed a kit setup at home as he's quite heavy-handed so his practice drumkit is his steering wheel on the way to work! His favourite style of music is metal but he'll play absolutely anything as long as it sounds good!

Baxter is the musical lovechild of Hayley Strangelove and Paul Senior.
Hayley is something of a local legend, with her direct, powerhouse vocals, evenly matched with a dry wit and infectious guitar style that will leave you open mouthed and wanting more.
Paul brings strong vocal styles from soul, blues and jazz through to big rock anthems. He was also the frontman of the rock band Son Of Shinobi.
Baxter strive to be more than your average covers band, choosing the less obvious songs to deliver a completely different experience that will keep you guessing, and dancing, but more importantly, smiling!
