Leighton Brown @ Wilbraham Arms, Nantwich View map - Wilbraham Arms Permanent link

Leighton Brown

Leighton began his singing career in the early 1970’s starting his musical life in vocal harmony bands touring the country performing at all types of venues.

Signed to an independent record label in the early 80’s Leighton had minor successes on the conitinent but still continued to work at his craft within the UK keeping his feet firmly grounded.

In 1992 a break came for Leighton when he was asked to stand in for a member of the American Drifters, this not only was a fantastic experience but also opened his eyes to the love that people around the UK still held for the great sounds of groups such as The Drifters and he began to formulate his own ideas for a tribute to the sound of Black America, incorporating Motown and Soul and a little bit of everything in between.

His tribute ‘ Motown Legacy’ is a nod to those great performers such as Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Sam and Dave, Jackie Wilson and so many more who gave us the truly great classics of pop and soul music.

Derailed @ Albert's Corner, Crewe View map - Albert's Corner 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 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!
