Secret Love - @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Secret Love

To celebrate the 90th birthday of Hollywood icon Doris Day, acclaimed jazz singer & West End actress Claudia Morris returns with this critically acclaimed show dedicated to her idol.

Doris Day has had an extraordinary life encompassing the big band era, Hollywood stardom, financial disaster, domestic tragedy, a TV comeback and tireless campaigning for animal rights. Claudia Morris has been inspired by the voice, wisdom, courage and convictions of one of Hollywood’s best loved actresses and singers.

Now, in an intimate evening of reminiscence, Claudia explores why she’s been touched so deeply by the icon she has revered for many years.

Expect plenty of laughs, a few tears and some surprises in this celebration of Day’s extraordinary music, movies and marriages from one of her most dedicated fans.

Accompanied by a live band and actors portraying key characters in Day’s story, Claudia Morris’s account of her idol’s journey is a unique and unmissable, heart-warming, toe-tapping show that sheds a fascinating new light on the true stories behind such evergreen hits as Que Sera Sera, Sentimental Journey, It’s Magic and Perhaps Perhaps along with some rare and poignant songs that show the many sides of this intriguing icon.

"Claudia Morris sings with flair and beauty, innocence and integrity, and, with her colleagues, catches appetisingly the hip, louche nature of the 1950s Sinatra-era. When the three sing together, it’s even more magical still."
RODERIC DUNNETT, Musical Theatre Review

"At no stage is Secret Love Dead Wood - so Move Over Darlings, here comes Claudia Morris with her Wonderful rich and expressive voice…"
MIKE READ, BBC Radio

"Claudia Morris captures the sophistication of Day’s delivery."

Rolling that ball of musical joy further forward in time to create a genre snowball effect until we landed, ready to sculpt the mass of noise into beautiful shapes.'

Vavoom! @ The Cosey Club, Haslington View map - The Cosey Club Permanent link

Vavoom!

High-octane rock ’n’ rollers Vavoom! have built up a strong following during the past 10 years or so, and have become known for delivering a fast-paced set of tunes spanning a number of decades.

Their style could be described as having a rock ’n’ roll core peppered with swing and jazz. They promise a high-octane set of rockabilly tunes inspired by The Stray Cats, early Elvis and the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

A career highlight for them was being asked by Sir Bob Geldof to support his band at the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival in 2002.

The band was formed by guitarist Andy Boote aka Booty.
Vince ‘The Viper’ Whitmore was added as drummer, and the final recruit was Chris Large, Peter Wilson auctioneer by day and double-slap bassist by night.

Together they bring sets of hot rod rock ’n’ roll and rockabilly delivered in style on demonic drums, banging double bass and growling Gretsch guitar.

Booty remains humble on the band’s broad appeal - “If it’s done right, everyone likes it,” he said; “It’s got an energy and enthusiasm that has got lost somewhere. People have forgotten how to play that style of music or it’s ended up underground.”

Russell is officially the UK’s best selling classical artist ever and has won four Classical BRITS. He has performed for some of the world’s greatest figures including, HM The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II who requested a private audience with Russell at The Vatican, former US President Bill Clinton, The Emperor of Japan, European Prime Ministers, Middle Eastern Sultans and the King of Malaysia. The list is endless.

Russell’s collaborations include Pavarotti, Lionel Richie, Michael Bolton, Lulu, Sarah Brightman, Meatloaf, Mel B, Alexandra Burke, Ashanti and Cleopatra to name but a few.

Russell is a patron for many charities and has raised millions of pounds for The Prince’s Trust, The Katy Holmes Trust and The Kirsty Club, along with performing to raise awareness and funds for the likes of Soccer Aid 2010, remembrance for the 4th Mechanized Brigade at York Minster (2010), the “Legends Match” at Celtic Park for Oxfam (2011) and the Bob Champion Cancer Trust in 2012.

Overcoming two life-threatening brain tumours, Russell is still very much the godfather of classical crossover. This concert is a unique opportunity to hear ‘The Voice’ as you have never heard it before.

Slug

SLUG were spawned out of The Slow & Easy Jam night at Lostock Gralam, Northwich in the Summer of 2011. The original line up was Zeke Vocals, Al Slug and Mike Slug on Guitars, Nik Slug on Bass and Paul Slug on Drums. After frantic rehearsals they performed their first set at the Moss Farm Festival, Northwich in the August of 2011. They knew then that there was chemistry. They received a great response from the crowd. As their reputation grew the gigs started to come in. The highlight was playing the Slow Fest and the infamous Thunder Sprint Gig at Northwich Memorial Hall on the same day.

Paul Slug left the band and was replaced by Colin Tolley. the band was stable for about a year and then there was a major shift. Nik and Al left the band just leaving Zeke and Mike out of the original line up. Nik was replaced by Paul Noden on the bass guitar. Al's position was axed as they decided to go out as a four piece. Shortly after Col decided he wanted to change direction and play the guitar so he formed his own outfit called the John Colins Band. It wasn't long before they found the perfect replacement drummer in Colin Alltree.

SLUG play classic rock covers also glam rock, rock n roll and modern day. There is something in their set for everyone. They pride themselves on their performance giving 110% every time.

Generation UK are a mod tribute band and have been performing for around four
years. There are few bands out there with the same amount of energy and passion that they play with. From the fire and skill of The Jam to the crashing, thumping sounds of The Small Faces and The Who and the melodic sounds of The Kinks, they do their best to mimic and capture the sounds together with that all important dynamic stage performance that those bands always had.

'Pretty' it isn't'' BUT if 'FULL THROTTLE' and crashing guitar and thumping rhythm is what you're into then don't miss this show!!

The John Colins Band @ The Express, Crewe View map - The Express Permanent link

John Colins Band

The John Colins Band love playing the music that people love but that no-one else plays!

The John Colins Band (or JCB as they are becoming known throughout the Cheshire and North West music circuit) are a good time, band playing classic dance tunes.

They make music that should get you singing, dancing and having a great time.

They rock up covers from the 60's to now.

From the Rolling Stones to Pink, Radiohead to R.E.M they cover a vast genre of songs. The common feature - you will rarely hear a local gigging band playing them.

The John Colins Band was formed when frontman Colin and guitarist John decided they were bored playing the same old tunes that other bands play so picked out some good old down to earth dancing tunes.

They invited Jonny T and Stephen T to join as the rhythm section and Stephen W as a third guitarist. His addition means Colin can come onto the dancefloor and help you have a great time interacting with the music.

Come down and see them - you will enjoy it!

Jimmy Dammage & The Shadow @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Jimmy Dammage and the Shadow

Jimmy Dammage and the Shadow have gone about this all wrong! For starters, their debut album was written and recorded before the band even got together and their second album is being recorded even before the first one has been finished! Add to that the fact that 2/3 of the band are knocking on the door of 40 yrs old and that the drummer is only 16 (and should actually probably be at home revising for his GCSEs!) then you definitely have an unusual package.

Musically, Jimmy Dammage and the Shadow are strictly a cover version free zone – if you want cover versions, it’s simple; go and watch somebody else. If however, you’re interested in a band that sounds like The Allman Brothers playing hardcore, Bon Iver goes punk, Elbow playing bar-room blues, Springsteen on a shoe-gazing trip or Buddy Holly playing metal then maybe, just maybe, Jimmy Dammage and the Shadow are the band for you….

Della & The Fellas @ The Market Tavern, Sandbach View map - The Market Tavern Permanent link

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.

This is a free gig!

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.

Thea Gilmore & her band @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Thea Gilmore

At an early age Oxfordshire born Thea Gilmore developed a talent for being very tall and writing words. Sometime in her teens she added music into the mix, and a year or so later certain corners of the British music press were describing her as ‘one of the few world class female singer-songwriters Britain has ever produced’.

Her debut album “Burning Dorothy” was released in 1999, and in 2003 she hit the UK charts for the first time with her 4th album “Avalanche” and the hit singles “Juliet” and “Mainstream”. During this period she famously refused to sign to major record labels, refused to work with a famous dance remix team and refused to say she was sleeping with a soap star in order to gain tabloid exposure. She was told by two A&R men that she had ‘missed her moment’.

She has toured extensively throughout the US and Canada, returned to the charts in 2006 with her “Harpo’s Ghost” album and subsequently in 2010 with “Murphys Heart”. Her successful singles include “You’re The Radio” “Teach Me To Be Bad” and “That’ll Be Christmas”, the last of these receiving the most airplay of any new seasonal record of the last five years. She has collaborated onstage or in the studio with Mike Scott and The Waterboys, Martha Wainwright, Sting, The Cowboy Junkies, Joan As Policewoman, Eliza Carthy to name just a few.

Her razor sharp lyrics, melodic flair and honey toned voice have been admired by wide ranging contemporaries from Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Richard Thompson, Neil Gaiman, David Baddeil and William Boyd. Sid Griffin hates her.

In 2012 “Don’t Stop Singing”, her new musical settings of the late Sandy Denny’s unfinished works, received great acclaim, and included the single “London” which was used extensively in the BBC TV coverage of the Olympic Games.

She is about to release her 14th album at the age of 33, and is still tall. Meanwhile at least one of the A&R men was last seen cooking school dinners.

Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Andy Fairweather-Low

Andy was born in 1948 in Cardiff and rose to prominence in the 60’s as the front man and guitarist for chart topping teen idol band Amen Corner. Amen Corner scored 6 memorable hits between '67 and '69 with '(If Paradise is) Half As Nice' reaching number 1 in January '69.

When the group split in '69 Andy formed the band Fairweather and they soon had a top 10 single in 1970 with 'Natural Sinner'. Andy’s first solo success was another top 10 hit with 'Reggae Tune' in September '74. Following up was not a problem and in '75 he released his second album 'La Booga Rooga'.

La Booga Rooga featured a great line up of musicians and among the tracks was ‘Wide Eyed & Legless’ released late in '75 and becoming another solo top 10 hit in the UK.
In 1980 Andy released his fourth solo album 'Mega Shebang'but had already started his notable contributions to other people’s records with his appearance in '78 on The Who’s album ‘Who Are You’ which also continued through with his appearance on guitar on their 'Its Hard' album in 1982 and contributions to Pete Townshend’s Psychderelict tour in 1993.

From the work with The Who Andy moved on as the in demand player and ultimate guitarist to the stars, building an extraordinary reputation that has endured to this day. In 1983, ex Small Faces and Faces bass player Ronnie Lane, himself suffering from multiple sclerosis, set about organising some of the most significant musicians in the Rock world to tour on both sides of the Atlantic and record with the aim of raising awareness and funds for sufferers of MS. The project, A.R.M.S. – Action for Research into Multiple Sclerosis, was immensely successful ending up with a visit to the White House for some of the participants. Andy, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ronnie Wood and Steve Winwood all appeared.

In the early nineties Andy joined Eric Clapton’s band with which he stayed until 2003 touring and recording the ‘Unplugged’, ‘From the Cradle’, ‘Pilgrim’, ‘Riding with the King’, ‘Reptile’, ‘One More Car One More Rider’, ‘Me & Mr. Johnson’ and ‘Back Home’ albums with him.

Andy was also a regular player with George Harrison, appearing on his ‘Live in Japan’ album and, in 2002, playing several of the lead guitar parts for the Harrison tribute, ‘The Concert for George’. One of Fairweather Low’s longest musical relationships, however, has been as musical director with Roger Waters. The two have worked together since Waters’ ‘Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking’ tour of America in 1985. Since that time Andy has contributed to two of Waters’ albums – ‘Radio K.A.O.S’ in 1987 and ‘Amused to Death’ in 1992 – and played guitar and bass on the 1999-2002 ‘In the Flesh’ world tour. He also rejoined Waters for the ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ tour more recently.

On November 29th, 2002, one of the most important concerts ever was staged at the Royal Albert Hall. The Concert for George was a tribute to George Harrison, under the musical direction of Eric Clapton and featuring Clapton, Joe Brown, Jools Holland, Sam Brown, Dhani Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Billy Preston, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar and Ringo Starr. Andy was a member of the Incredible House Band, which also included Dave Bronze, Gary Brooker, Jim Capaldi, Ray Cooper, Jim Keltner, Albert Lee and Chris Stainton.

Andy is also a regular member of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, the consequence of another relationship that stretches back to the mid-Eighties. Fairweather Low and Wyman first worked together at the A.R.M.S. benefit concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1983. It was a charity cause that Bill revisited in 1985 with Willie & The Poor Boys, a Fifties’ style rock ‘n’ roll concept band featuring Andy who, since that time has been frequently involved in Wyman’s projects, most recently touring with the Rhythm Kings in 2005 and the summer of 2006 and 2007.

But perhaps it was inevitable that one day Fairweather Low would be tempted to return to the studio in his own right. That time came in 2006. ‘Sweet Soulful Music’ reunited Fairweather Low with producer Glyn Johns – and features bassist David Bronze (Eric Clapton, Robin Trower, Procol Harum), drummer Henry Spinetti (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey) and John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick (Bob Marley, The Who, Pete Townshend) together with Roger Waters’ back-up singers Katie Kissoon, Carol Kenyon and PP Arnold. Twenty-six years is a long wait but ‘Sweet Soulful Music’ signalled a welcome return for one of the UK’s most distinctive artists, as heartily endorsed by many of the world’s greatest talents.

The current band is also a who’s who of the best players on the rock scene, joining Andy on Drums is Paul Beavis (Thea Gilmore, Robbie Macintosh & Sunday All Over The World) on Keyboards is Nick Pentelow (Juice on the Loose, Diz and the Doormen, Dr. John, Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers and Big Jay McNeely, Gary Moore) and on Bass is long standing associate Dave Bronze (Clapton, Concert For George, Dear Mr Fantasy tribute to Jim Capaldi).

FM @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

FM

Featuring local guitar supremo Jim Kirkpatrick, FM are playing at Nantwich Civic Hall on Friday 4th April.

Comprising the ex-Samson pair of bassist Merv Goldsworthy and drummer Pete Jupp; the Overland brothers –vocalist/guitarist Steve and lead guitarist Chris - both formerly of Wildlife; plus the keyboard talents of Philip Manchester (AKA sci-fi nutcase Didge Digital), FM’s first public appearance on Valentine’s Day of 1985 was swiftly followed by the release of their début album, INDISCREET. FM hit the road in Europe supporting the likes of Tina Turner, Meat Loaf, Foreigner, Gary Moore, Status Quo and the white-hot Bon Jovi on the ‘Slippery When Wet’ tour.

For the next 12 years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring everywhere they could to promote releases such as 1989’s TOUGH IT OUT and 1992’s APHRODISIAC. In1996, with ‘grunge’ fever sweeping the world, the band decided to call it a day…


… until October 2007, when FM at last played together again for the first time in 12 years, headlining a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City.

New guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick made his FM live début at Winstanley College in March 2009, followed by a return headline spot at Firefest VI the following October, as well as playing on the WILDSIDE EP released that same month. ‘Wildside’ set the scene for FM’s first new album in 15 years. The highly acclaimed METROPOLIS (released March 2010) spawned singles ‘Hollow’ and ‘Bring Back Yesterday’ which found the band playlisted on many radio stations, not least on the UK’s biggest station - BBC Radio 2. FM played to packed houses across the UK throughout 2010 culminating with main stage appearances at Download in June and Hard Rock Hell IV in December.

The band somehow found the time to release a 9-track mini-album CITY LIMITS EP in October 2010, featuring brand new song ‘Start It Up’ and live performances of several METROPOLIS songs recorded at concerts earlier in the year. The lead track on the mini-album ‘Bring Back Yesterday’ continued the success of its predecessor ‘Hollow’ by being playlisted at BBC Radio 2 for a month along with many other stations worldwide.

FM started 2011 with a show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on January 22 with Thin Lizzy. The rest of the year saw the band return to many overseas strongholds of years gone by, including headline shows in Holland and Spain (their first ever live concert in that country); a show with D-A-D in Portugal; dates with Journey and Foreigner in Germany, Dublin and Belfast and appearances at major festivals such as Graspop in Belgium and Sweden Rock. They were also invited back to play at Download Festival again.

In January 2012 FM headlined the Sunday night Rock Stage at the Great British Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness and during March they staged three special concerts in Glasgow, Manchester and London to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the release of their début album INDISCREET. These shows saw FM play INDISCREET live in its entirety for the first time ever as part of a full show.

March 2013 proved to be a busy time for FM – their seventh studio album ROCKVILLE was released 11 March, followed by the release of companion album ROCKVILLE II 25 March. On 15 March the band set off on their UK tour with special guests It Bites, Vega and Serpentine, culminating with their return to London Shepherd’s Bush Empire for the final night of the tour on 23 March 2013. With barely time to catch their breath FM released the DVD INDISCREET 25 LIVE at the beginning of April 2013 and headed off to Rotherham for the inaugural HRH AOR festival where on 06 April 2013 they shared the stage with other luminaries of the genre Tesla, Danny Vaughn and more including past tour-mates Romeo’s Daughter and Vega.

In June 2013 FM joined TOTO, Survivor and Rick Springfield on the bill for German festival HiRock at Inzell and on 27 July the band appeared as Special Guests at Planet Rock’s Steelhouse Festival in Wales followed the next day by a sell-out headline show at The River Rooms in Stourbridge with Special Guest Toby Jepson. In December Toby Jepson returned as special guest for FM’s final headline appearance of the year at a packed-out The Box in Crewe and the band ended the year with a set on the main stage at Planet Rock Radio’s Planet Rockstock festival.
Tracks from the ROCKVILLE albums were playlisted on radio stations worldwide throughout 2013, including “Story Of My Life” on BBC Radio 2, “Bad Addiction” on Planet Rock and “Crosstown Train” on Bloodstock Radio and Hard Rock Nights. Closing 2013, “Better Late Than Never” was added to the BBC Radio 2 playlist from 26 December.

2014 has been another busy year for FM. In addition to writing and recording for their next album, they started off with a set at the Giants of Rock festival in Minehead on 8th February. FM then toured the UK during March / April 2014 with Foreigner and Europe with further European dates alongside Foreigner in Belgium and France. Following the Foreigner tour FM headed straight out for a series of headline shows in Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Portugal, taking them into May. A new EP entitled FUTURAMA was released on 31 March to coincide with these live dates.

The latter half of 2014 featured the start of FM’s 30th Anniversary celebrations, which saw the band headlining Cambridge Rock Festival on 9 August, preceded by a show at Warehouse23 in Wakefield the night before. A 30th anniversary tour took place in November with dates in Southampton, Cardiff, Stourbridge, Bingley, Southend On Sea and Holmfirth

King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys

King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are more than just the world’s greatest swing & R&B band, they are an institution! The band have been on the road for almost three decades playing every European country as well as touring the USA, Russia and the Middle East, recording ten CDs.

​Dazzling musicianship,​ riveting stage performances, more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts have established them as the Kings of Swing.

​What does the title ‘King Pleasure’ evoke? In this context it suggests eating, drinking, spending money, chasing chicks, having a good time, overdoing it more than somewhat and explaining the events of the night before to the judge on the morning after. All apt topics for song and celebration, especially in these grim times. So much pop music nowadays is full of anger and violence on the one hand, and slack-jawed stupidity on the other, and so much contemporary jazz is excessively earnest and glum, that we are in urgent need of music that comes with a cheer-up guarantee. That is exactly what King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys unfailingly deliver.

​Sounds easy when put like that, but it isn’t – not to do it properly at any rate. A ny bunch of fools can don zoot suits and pointy shoes that you could climb a chain-link fence in. I t doesn’t take a lot to learn a few riffs and strike a few poses. But to create the kind of easy swing you hear on The Wrong Door, the precision and attack of Big Girl, the blend in Bring It On Baby takes talent, focus and a lot of working together. And when you experience it live you discover what a real show can be – wholehearted, full-on, exhausting and unforgettable.

​But what kind of music is it? Well, if you’ll kindly lay aside that list of runners and riders once more, I’ll attempt a brief historical sketch. Ahem! When the great Swing Era ended, in the mid – 1940s, it broke apart and the various bits started growing into styles of their own. One of these was dance-hall rhythm and blues, as performed by such names as Lucky Millinder, Buddy Johnson and Louis Jordan, at places like Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom. This, I think, is the root of the Biscuit Boys’ style, although their own distinctive approach has by now developed quite a long way from there.

​The King and the Boys have been around for quite a while, getting on for three decades in fact. But how can that be? Some of them look far too young. Well, it’s like the penknife with two new blades and three new handles. Individual members may change but the band stays the same. Think of Count Basie’s orchestra. Half a century with one tiny break. Only two members lasted the entire course, one of them Basie himself, but you could never mistake it for any other band. In the case of the Biscuit Boys, the King and Bullmoose have been there from the beginning. Changes have taken place, but not often. The latest recruit is dynamic pianist Mighty Matt Foundling, who took over from Crab – Claw Tromans shortly before the ‘Hey Puerto Rico’ album – the band’s ninth – was recorded. And, just as with the Basie band, details may change but the magic formula remains unchanged.

​One result of being around for a while is that the King and the Boys have built themselves the kind of fan base that aspiring pop stars would kill for. The word ‘fan’ is short for ‘fanatic’, and the last count there were 2,500 people around the world sufficiently fanatical to join the band’s fan club. And if you’re talking about loyalty, how about the fifty – odd members who chartered their own plane to follow the boys to the Cork Jazz Festival?

​Everywhere they go they hook more devotees. They’ve played all over Europe, up as far as Russia. Even more impressively, they’ve stormed across the US, much to the surprise of the natives. As one New York magazine put it: ‘Those who say that swing is a musical form best left to Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet proof!’.

​Of course they are! They’re the genuine article, in full working order, dedicated to shaking you up and swinging you into the middle of nest week. They’ve got King Pleasure’s inimitable stogies – and – bourbon voice, they’ve got a roaring band sound that comes at you like the Wabash Cannonball, and above all they’ve got that beat. In the words of the immortal Lord Buckley ‘Rhythm is the key to everything – runs the whole swingin’ thing’.

Resistance is futile. Surrender to having a good time.


“The hardest act to follow since the parting of the Red Sea” Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2, The Manfreds & The Blues Band

“For those that say swing is a musical form best let to the Ameicans, prepair to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet-proof.” Atomic Magazine, New York

“Behind the fun and rollocking good times​ lies an outfit skilled enough for the horns to come on with the bite and precision of the Basie Band” The Guardian“

“Superb, a stunning range of instrumental ability….. Classy stuff in the style of Louis Jordan and Eddie ‘Cleanhad’ Vinson, with nowt taken out ! A band I recommend ANYBODY to go and see” Dave Clarke, Now Dig This Magazine

It’s been a while but we’re glad they’re back with their unique and lively style.

Support from The Stumble - Classic valve driven back line driven with shuffle and roll. Heavily based on the rapturous electric blues guitar sound that emanated from Chicago in the ’50s and ’60s. Influences range from B.B. King, Freddy King, Muddy Waters, Maceo Parker, Peter Green, Booker T, King Curtis and many more.

Claire Martin & The Montpellier Cello Quartet @ St Mary's Church, Nantwich View map - St Mary's Church Permanent link

Claire Martin

This is an afternoon show – 3pm start

Claire Martin has spent the last 27 years honing the craft of jazz singing. To worldwide critical acclaim she has established herself as a tour de force on the UK jazz scene gaining many awards, including winning the British Jazz Awards seven times along the way.

Thanks to her jazz-loving parents, Claire grew up in a household full of great music. She became a professional singer at 19 and two years later she realised her dream of singing at Ronnie Scott’s legendary jazz club in Soho. Signed to Linn Records in 1991, Claire has since released 17 CDs with the label, collaborating with musical luminaries including Martin Taylor, John Martyn, Stephane Grappelli, Mark Nightingale, Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Jim Mullen and Nigel Hitchcock on many of these recordings.

Claire has performed all over Europe and Asia with her trio and, until his death in 2012, with Sir Richard Rodney Bennett in an intimate cabaret duo setting both in England and in America where they played to sell out crowds at venues including the prestigious Algonquin Hotel in New York City. Claire is also a featured soloist with the Halle Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the RTE Concert Orchestra, the BBC Big Band and the BBC Concert Orchestra. She has co-presented BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line Up since 2000 and has interviewed many of her musical heroes such as Pat Metheny, the late Michael Brecker, Brad Mehldau and Andre Previn. Her 2009 CD A Modern Art prompted Jazz Times USA to claim: “She ranks among the four or five finest female jazz vocalists on the planet”.

Claire was thrilled to win both the 2009 and 2010 ‘Best Vocalist’ category at the British Jazz Awards and toured extensively throughout the UK, Scandinavia, Russia and China, appearing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and her world-class trio. 2011 proved to be an extraordinary year for Claire who made her debut at the Lincoln Center in New York with pianist Bill Charlap and went on to perform for the third time at the famous Algonquin Hotel for a three week residency with Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. Their CD Witchcraft gained much critical acclaim and was “unequivocally recommended” by Jazzwise magazine. At the Queen’s Birthday Honours in June, Claire was delighted to be awarded an OBE for her Services to Jazz.

In August 2011 Claire recorded with legendary jazz pianist Kenny Barron and an all-star American line up for her fifteenth album for Linn records. Too Much in Love to Care received 5 star reviews and prompted Jazz Journal to state that she is “one of the finest jazz singers in the world today”. The album went on to win the ‘Best New Recording’ award at the 2012 British Jazz Awards. 2013 was spent touring the new material in the UK and Europe and embarking on a new show The Two of Us with conductor John Wilson, Joe Stilgoe, Mark McGann and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, celebrating the music of Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

Claire has recently embarked on a new and unique musical adventure with The Montpellier Cello Quartet. With new arrangements especially written for her by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Mark Anthony Turnage and Django Bates, this new chamber jazz ensemble will be touring this September to promote a new album on Linn Records called ‘Time and Place’ which features singer/pianist Joe Stilgoe who has become Claire’s new cabaret partner. A highlight for this duo with Joe was a sell out performance at the Wigmore Hall in December where they celebrated the songs of Paris.

Claire lives in Brighton with her husband and her daughter Amelia.

Afternoon Show 3pm Start
Claire Martin joins with the Cello quartet for a new take on some familiar numbers.

Tickets £17.00 no bkg fee.

The Blues Band @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

The Blues Band

The individual members of The Blues Band were already held in admiration by generations of rhythm & blues fans when they formed back in 1979. Almost two and a half decades and over 16 albums later they continue to add to their growing army of followers, and it’s not unheard of to find three generations from the same family at a gig.

The band are today acknowledged throughout Europe and beyond as being amongst the very finest purveyors of rhythm & blues. They have inspired numerous other blues bands, many of which have come and gone. The Blues Band have remained a constant, increasingly popular fixture, however, and all with only a modicum of help from the record business – as Gary’s oft quoted comment states “the music industry doesn’t bother us and we don’t bother them.”

This independent streak goes right back to their early days when in an unusual move the band “bootlegged” their own first album – certain copies of which are now collector’s items. The ‘bootlegging’ came about because, having recorded their first album, the so called ‘major label’ which was to release it changed their minds and the band didn’t have the cash to pay the studio bill. So they got 1000 copies pressed up, mastered from a copy tape that they had, signed the plain white numbered sleeves and sold them at gigs & via mail order etc. Only then did another ‘major label’ pick up the album and release it widely.

It’s a credit to both the band’s talent and to their many thousands of fans’ loyalty and support that they have since sustained such a long career, and brings into question the oft-spoken phrase by parents despairing of their aspiring musical offspring, “When are you going to get yourself a proper job?”

Such successful musical mavericks are fairly rare and are borne more from word-of-mouth than promotional hype. Either way they still have to cut the mustard. These boys have real feel – for their music, for their audience and for each other. Playing with maturity and passion is second nature to all of them. Paul Jones has devoted much of a creative career spanning almost 40 years to this eternal, inspiring form – the very base and roots of rock & roll. Dave Kelly, with his late, great sister, Jo-Ann, introduced a whole generation to the works of Memphis Minnie, Son House, Robert Johnson and Mississippi Fred McDowell

The blues bit Tom McGuinness in the late ’50s and has never let go – the same sharp, tight grip which still holds Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher within its spell. So here they are, as enthusiastic as ever – Britain’s finest, most skilled practitioners in the art of the blues. The Blues Band.

They are currently traveling the length and breadth of the country performing to packed venues of all shapes and sizes as well as writing and recording.
The music they write is a mixture of all the types of music that they love, which includes the driving guitars of the big American rock bands mixed with the vocals of bands like Queen, plus a hint of Brit rock and a flavour of bands like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles.

Slug @ The Express, Crewe View map - The Express Permanent link

Slug

SLUG were spawned out of The Slow & Easy Jam night at Lostock Gralam, Northwich in the Summer of 2011. The original line up was Zeke Vocals, Al Slug and Mike Slug on Guitars, Nik Slug on Bass and Paul Slug on Drums. After frantic rehearsals they performed their first set at the Moss Farm Festival, Northwich in the August of 2011. They knew then that there was chemistry. They received a great response from the crowd. As their reputation grew the gigs started to come in. The highlight was playing the Slow Fest and the infamous Thunder Sprint Gig at Northwich Memorial Hall on the same day.

Paul Slug left the band and was replaced by Colin Tolley. the band was stable for about a year and then there was a major shift. Nik and Al left the band just leaving Zeke and Mike out of the original line up. Nik was replaced by Paul Noden on the bass guitar. Al's position was axed as they decided to go out as a four piece. Shortly after Col decided he wanted to change direction and play the guitar so he formed his own outfit called the John Colins Band. It wasn't long before they found the perfect replacement drummer in Colin Alltree.

SLUG play classic rock covers also glam rock, rock n roll and modern day. There is something in their set for everyone. They pride themselves on their performance giving 110% every time.

Don't miss this!!
