Terri Fox

Terri Fox has been delighting audiences worldwide since 1980 with his ultra glamorous female Impersonation act.
His unique talents cross all music genre and tastes, from musical theater ,summer season and cabaret – there isn’t an audience (age or type) that Terri hasn’t performed for and thrilled. Mentored by such unforgettable icons as the late, and great, Danny La Rue and the late FooFoo Lamar, Terri is “entertainment quality” at its finest and is one of the leading female impersonators in the world today.

Terri has performed at prestigious venues throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with appearances at London’s Savoy Hotel, The Dorchester, The Landmark and Claridges. Overseas work has included appearances in America, Canada, Spain, and France. As a spin off from Terri‘s West End Show, he was asked to perform at the Cannes Film Festival as a celebrity guest. This led him to America where he performed at the Ramada Inn resorts at Fort Lauderdale and in Los Vegas. Back in Europe, he opened a new show at Banalmadana in Marbella and Purto Banus, Costa Del Sol, Spain. Calling it “Terri Fox‘s Palace Cabaret Club”, his show was sold out every single night.

In 1991 Terri wowed audiences with his London West End debut, “The Terri Fox Experience”, which was originally booked for only six months. Due to demand, the show ran for almost 13 months and broke box office records for any show of its kind. Terri has also appeared on numerous TV chat shows, light entertainment productions as well as hundreds of radio shows and press interviews. He also appeared in TV’s “Coronation Street” and had a part in the film “An Inspector Calls” along side actor James Fox.

Terri is definitely so much more than just a “comic in a frock”. He sings, dances, acts, impersonates and also does hilarious stand up comedy. He displays a talent that blasts the notion of “Dressing up in Drag”. Terri‘s shows are elegant, tasteful, professional and extremely funny. He is known by his many thousands of fans all over the world as an ICON

One reviewer said… “The gowns are breathtaking, the wigs are totally stunning , the voice is versatility itself. Terri illuminates women rather than merely impersonating them, walking a fine line between character and caricature, and has never being anything less than hugely funny. He has a sharp wit, is full of human perception and high energy and actually says what most people only dare think!!!”

The Roy Orbison Story

He’s the man with the sunglasses and the black suit who delivered some of the world’s darkest and most emotional ballads, yet Texas-born Roy Orbison remains one of the most distinctive looking and sounding performers in modern music. The one and only Barry Steele takes on the role in The Roy Orbison Story. He comes with great credentials and a genuine admiration for the Big “O”. Now he is set to put the rock back into ‘Roy Orbison’ as he takes to the stage to commemorate this legend in The Roy Orbison Story.

Expect what is being billed as an upbeat and contemporary slant on Orbison’s legacy, as Barry Steele and Friends take audiences on a musical journey from the early Sun years right through to the late 1980s, when Orbison was experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity and worked with Bono, Bruce Springsteen and others including super group the Traveling Wilburys alongside former Beatle George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.

So get ready for a night of solid gold 60s hits and 80s contemporary genius as the Roy Orbison Story celebrates the musical legacy of The Big O. The production also features not only original material written by but never sung by Roy Orbison, it also showcases chart busting hits originally made famous by the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Jeff Lynne , ELO, George Harrison, Del Shannon, Chris Isaak, The Spencer Davis Group and The Traveling Wilburys; Barry Steele has been stunning audiences with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison, winning rave reviews across the globe.

Derailed @ The Blind Beggar (formerly The Albion), Crewe View map - The Blind Beggar (formerly The Albion) 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.

Baxter

Baxter is the musical lovechild of Hayley Strangelove and Paul Senior.

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!





Diamonds And Ducks @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven Permanent link

Step Mutha Humbucker

In light of the changes in personnel within camp Humbucker this year and the arrival of front man Mr David Shaw, the guys have also dragged their policies into the modern day by becoming an equal opportunity employer!

To mark such an occasion, Mutha Humbucker were pleased to announce the arrival of the long awaited Step Mutha Humbucker featuring the very talented Ms. Sammy G on vocals - and now rebranded as Diamonds And Ducks!

SMH first appeared together some years ago now as a one off alternative show and at the Nantwich Jazz & Blues festival which on the night seemed to gel and work quite nicely.
In 2018 the guys approached Sammy to get this act off the ground again - this has affected man banter in the van but not affected the show!!!

The dials continue to be cranked to 11 but with a brand new set to entertain the masses, expect tracks from Queen & Tina Turner to Pat Benatar & Pink.

Wayne Roberts @ Wilbraham Arms, Nantwich View map - Wilbraham Arms Permanent link

Wayne Roberts

"What can be said about this young, versatile, entertainer? (quite a bit, actually!)

He started his vocal career and entertaining at a very early age. however, it was not until he teamed up with another young man and created the duo ' Full Stop' that things took off.

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."
