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.

FREE ADMISSION - The Studio have decided to do this one for Charity, so it's FREE Admission, with donations on the door welcome for St Lukes Hospice.

Open from 8.30pm. LIVE on Stage 9.30pm. Please arrive early this show is always a FULL house.

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.”

Guns Or Roses

Guns Or Roses aka GoR have been around since their concept in 2009 just after the new year when lead guitarist John Sumbler put an ad out to start a Guns N' Roses tribute band.

The only original members from that point are drummer Padraig Tansey and of course John Sumbler, but after some trials and tribulations, a couple of line-up changes, GoR are:

Martin Colley - Axl
John Sumbler - Slash
Dermo - Duff
Erol Canavan - Izzy
Padraig Tansey - Matt

The band have been noted as being the most entertaining GnR tribute on the circuit and have wowed audiences from London to Norway, Manchester to Bulgaria. These guys are international jetsetters as well as UK favorites without a doubt.

John Sumbler is arguably one of THE top Slash impersonators on the scene, recreating each riff, solo and lick to the note. It has to be seen to be believed, and up front with Martin Axl Colley, these two are a dynamic force to be reckoned with. Backed by three other superb musicians, GoR are up there with the best for sure!

Playing everything pre-dating the Chinese Democracy album, GoR will hit you with a setlist which alters slightly each gig, but you'll get the faves and hits such as Paradise City, Sweet Child, It's So Easy, Knockin' On Heaven's Door and Mr Brownstone as well as tracks like You Could Be Mine, Pretty Tied Up, November Rain and My Michelle. You won't be dissapointed.

With each gig, they aim to give the audience a good two hour performance dependent on the venue and whether they're on stage with another few bands or not, GoR are well worth the money!

Sabbotage @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link


Sabbotage arrived on the scene in November 2014. Formed from the ashes of two established Black Sabbath Tribute’s (Snowblind and Blag Sabbath), immediately it was obvious that this band would become arguably the UK’s most authentic and by far the best Black Sabbath tribute.

All of the band are highly accomplished and experienced musicians sharing a great passion for early Black Sabbath in particular.

The Barron Knights

Probably the most entertaining group to come out of the 60’s and 70’s. Their musicianship,their harmonies and of course their humour makes them what their peers call them ‘The Guvnors’.

You’ll be rockin and laughing as well as rolling. Apart from the old favourites like Call Up The Groups, they play their inimitable version of the William Tell Overture and their Flamenco party piece Malaguana is always requested. Their parody of Killer Queen about whether Camilla will be queen and the hilarious take on of Windmills Of Your Mind about what happens to your body as you get older will be in the show.

A show not to be missed!

Little Comets @ Crown Ballroom, Nantwich View map - Crown Ballroom Permanent link

Little Comets

LITTLE COMETS

Hailing from Jarrow, Little Comets are a brilliant indie rock trio who broke into the Top 40 in 2015 with their 3rd album "Hope Is Just A State Of Mind". Their infectiously breezy songs, often with anthemic choruses, have drawn comparisons to The 1975 and Vampire Weekend, but their style is truthfully all their own and keynote tracks such as "Jennifer" and "Dancing Song" have received extensive BBC Radio 1 airplay.
Little Comets have always been famed for gigging in unlikely places – in their early pre-record contract days they played spontaneously in lecture halls, on buses and trams, and only last year they became the first band to complete a gig around the Great North Run. We're delighted they've chosen to play Words & Music, and their brand of "kitchen sink indie" (their words!) is set to give the festival a huge, inspiring and energetic start.

Support from OLI NG

Oli Ng is a 21 year old Singer-Songwriter from Crewe. Taking influences from artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Brian Fallon and Ryan Adams, Oli's songwriting has something for everybody.
His live show has been crafted from relentless touring of the UK and Europe Solo and with Alt Rock act 'The Eyres' who have graced stages with the likes of Catfish & The Bottlemen and Mallory Knox. Oli is also part of the 'Tom Seals Band' with whom he toured with around the UK, including an appearance at Bestival 2016 as well as joining Tom on a Tour of Hong Kong in 2015.

Oli's EP 'Into The Dark' won 'Best EP' at the Music Awards of Staffordshire & Cheshire 2017

Therapy?

THERAPY? (ACOUSTIC)

Since first emerging from Northern Ireland at the start of the 90s and almost single-handedly coining the phrase 'alternative rock', Therapy? have blazed a unique trail across the UK.
Support slots with Teenage Fanclub, Hole and Babes In Toyland saw the band's reputation burgeoning through 1991, and their first Top 40 album "Nurse" was quickly followed by the Mercury Prize nominated, Kerrang! Award winning "Troublegum" album, one of a string of chart albums and EPs.
Through many stylistic detours and line-up changes the band's devoted core following have kept them a major live draw, and their acoustic shows, developed in recent years, give an army of fans, plus newer listeners, a chance to rediscover the songs in smaller venues, with the band's passion and uncompromising stance undimmed.

Tom Robinson

TOM ROBINSON & BAND

Into the 1977 maelstrom of UK punk and new wave strode Tom Robinson with his album "Power In The Darkness", a bag of great songs and a huge socio-political conscience.
Most resonant of all was "Glad To Be Gay" the bold, ground shifting anthem, which sent shock waves around the inherently sexist and judgemental rock 'n' roll landscape of the time.
Massive hits like "2 4 6 8 Motorway", "Martin" and "War Baby" followed as Tom extended his musical palette, collaborating in subsequent years with both Peter Gabriel and Elton John.
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his arrival on the scene, Robinson - now a revered presenter of new music on BBC 6 Music - is performing the whole of the "Power In The Darkness" album, still resonating with passion and relevance to 2017.
A unique celebration of one of UK rock's great careers.

Afterglow

"Afterglow came about because we knew we all got along well and wanted to create a band that was a little bit different. A band where the song is King and no song is out of the running!
After seven months of very enjoyable rehearsals, we've tried a huge number of incredibly varied songs, some that worked and some that didn't. We now have a set list that we're proud of, a diverse collection of songs that have been given the Afterglow treatment!"

Electro 80's @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box 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.

Derailed @ The Four Eagles, Crewe View map - The Four Eagles Permanent link

Derailed

DERAILED are a new 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.

This is a free gig, 9ish start.

Red Mick @ Coppenhall Working Mens Club, Crewe View map - Coppenhall Working Mens Club Permanent link

Red Mick

Since the summer of 1985 Simply Red have taken the British single and album charts by storm.

From the early northern soul of Money's Too Tight (To Mention) and Holding Back The Years through the sophisticated Motown groove of It's Only Love and If You Don't Know Me By Now to Nineties pop driven classics such as Stars and Fairground. Simply Red are simply one of the most successful British chart acts of the last twenty years.

From 1985's Picture Book to 2007's Stay, now is your chance to hear Mick Hucknall’s back catalogue faithfully recreated by Red Mick, the only Simply Red tribute in the country performing all the top 10 hits, including You Make Me Feel Brand New.

Red Mick is the only Simply Red tribute used by Pontins Holidays, Grosvenor Casinos, Jumpin’Jaks, Chicago Rock Café, Ocean Village Cruises, Arena Pubs and Gala Casinos.



“Red Mick is a superb tribute artiste whose visual and vocal likeness to Mick Hucknall is really quite extraordinary” - THE STAGE MARCH 2002

“On a day of accurate tributes the standard didn’t slip as Red Mick gave us his tribute to Simply Red. Hucknall’s voice cannot be the easiest to impersonate but this performer has it down to a tee. A New Flame and Stars were delivered with easy confidence but the highlight had to be his version of Holding Back The Years, a highly polished performance. If you are looking for a Simply Red tribute, look no further than Red Mick” - THE STAGE FEBRUARY 2003

“One of the major hits of the afternoon was Red Mick, as far as I know the only artist offering a tribute to Mick Hucknall. The flame-haired singer was undoubtedly an icon of the eighties, as well as having one of the best voices and Red Mick does him full justice, especially in his best-known song, Holding Back The Years" - THE STAGE SHOWCALL 2 FEBRUARY 2005

“Amazing sound-alike Mike Bassett certainly made heads swivel with the sheer accuracy of his vocal impression of Mick Hucknall, which is known as Red Mick. This South Wales based tribute king is nothing short of stunning in terms of vocal quality alone. The opening offering from this highly saleable artiste, Money's To TIght Too Mention was enough to convince everyone of the strength and accuracy of the performance" - THE STAGE OCTOBER 2005
