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

Coldspell
The melodic rockers in Coldspell have released their exciting new album!

Based in Sweden they were formed in 2005 by guitarist and songwriter Michael Larsson. Coldspell blasted onto the scene with their own brand of hard rock and took the world by storm with their debut album release,“Infinate Stargaze”. The album received stunning reviews and was on several album “top lists” for 2009 and two years later the brand new release “Out from the Cold” was put out to an eager audience, once again mixed by Tommy Hansen in Denmark, Tommy of course having previously worked with Helloween, TNT, Pretty Maids, Jorn and Pagan’s Mind.
Well, why change a winning formula?! .

Its now 2014 and Coldspell have worked hard on a new recording, “Frozen Paradise”, once again with Tommy Hansen at the mixing desk. This is an unbelievable recording and the band have taken it one step further and made an album that surpasses all they have done. Great new songs like “Paradise”, “Goin all the way” and “On the run” are just such examples of their excellence. Razor sharp riffs, solid rhythms and great choruses are the order of the day, this is an album they have all been eagerly awaiting and no-one will be disappointed…

Limehouse Lizzy @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Limehouse Lizzy
...Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music's Hardest Working UK Bands List' -Billboard Magazine 2011
Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest & most popular performers.

They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society in December 2011, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.

Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away last year.

In 2012 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott.

This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.

Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like ”Whisky in the Jar” and “Black Rose”, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Sarah” and many others we’ve come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.

Jaie Lupton @ Crown Hotel Bar, Nantwich View map - Crown Hotel Bar Permanent link


One Way System @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

One Way System
One Way System’s initial line-up was Craig Halliday (guitar), Gavin Whyte (vocals), Tez Mcdonald (drums) and Gaz Buckley (bass). A demo of the song Jerusalem recorded by that lineup was included on the A Country Fit For Heroes compilation album, released in 1982 which reached No. 4 in the UK Indie Charts. David Ross joined the band as second guitarist and in 1981 they released the No Entry EP.

The first ever record released by OWS was Stab The Judge financed by Craig Halliday with his Grannys Legacy on a loan basis. Incidentally, although all of the 1000 pressings were sold, Craig’s loan to Barry Lights is as yet unpaid!

After some early personnel changes the line-up settled down as Gav Whyte on vocals, Dave Ross on guitar, Gaz Buckley on bass and Tommy Couch on drums.

The Give Us A Future 7″ was the first release on Anagram Records in 1982. In the same year, Anagram also re released No Entry as the Stab The Judge EP and the single version of Jerusalem. OWS became the first signing to Anagram with the release of their All Systems Go LP following the success of Give Us A Future in the indie charts and the band being featured on the front cover of UK national music newspaper Sounds.

Between 1982 and 1984 the band had five Indie Chart hit singles and two Top Ten albums. A U.S. West Coast tour alongside Circle Jerks in 1984 was abandoned when Keith Morris broke his neck, although the band managed to salvage one date with Suicidal Tendencies. In 1985 Gav Whyte was replaced on vocals by Andy Gibson and the band remained signed to Anagram until they split in early 1986 with enough songs written for an unreleased third album.

Tom Couch then spent 2 years with the UK Subs and has since been voted one of the best punk drummers of all time. OWS was resurrected in 1995 with Gavin Whyte returning. Gaz Buckley left the band to be replaced by Dave Brown who was replaced in turn by Andy Wilkinson and, in 1996, Cleopatra issued a Best Of collection. In 1996, whilst working on a new album, Gavin Whyte left the band and was replaced by longtime fan Lee Havok and it was with this line-up that undertook a tour of Japan.

A new CD, Waiting For Zero was released through GMM in 1998 and Cherry Red released a Singles Collection in 2003.The 2005 various artists compilation CD Give Us A Future ( took its name from the OWS single of that name.

More recently, Lee Havok was replaced by ukNige and him then by Jay Susel. In 2011, Couch and Wilkinson, while remaining in OWS, joined gothic psychobilly band Boneyard Zombies, releasing the Death Rattle and Roll album in 2012. Both bands appeared at the 2012 Rebellion Festival in Blackpool.

Recording for a new OWS album is already underway and the band toured the U.S. West Coast in 2013. Gaz Buckley is currently in Aussie punk band The Terraces.

The Sex Pistols Experience are The Worlds No1 professional tribute to the most outrageous & controversial band of all time.

So convincing is the live show that the BBC, Sky TV, Channel4, Fox TV (in the U.S.) & lately the new movie ‘Who Killed Nancy?’ (out now on DVD) have all hired this band for re-enactments in film & T.V documentaries as the Sex Pistols/Sid & Nancy. 'The Sex Pistols Experience’ are the only band to of had the thumbs-up of approval from the original Sex Pistols. Whilst on tour in America they were invited as ‘special guests’ on Jonesys Jukebox’ – the acclaimed radio show of Pistols guitarist Steve Jones - and spendt the afternoon being interviewed & playing a few Pistols favourites live on air together to million’s of listeners throughout Los Angeles & across the Worldwide web!

With more than seventeen years of experience on the road the full seven piece E-Street band line up really do capture the spirit of the Boss live. They will take you on a blast down Thunder Road playing all the 'classics' on the way and are more than likely to throw in a few choice album tracks too!

They are more than likely to throw in a few choice album tracks too! These boys & girls will rock for over three hours (when they're allowed) and give you that Bruce experience you thought you just couldn't get anymore.

Their sets have included just about everything over the years and you will always be treated to a great mix of songs, from Jungleland and Thunder Road to The River and Promised Land, they pick from the best back catalogue around. When The Boss stays home, Glory Days will give you what you need... Jersey style!

(THE JOKERS GIG STARTS AT MIDNIGHT).

Tickets £10

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

The Jokers
THIS GIG STARTS AT MIDNIGHT, AFTER THE EARLIER 'GLORY DAYS' SHOW.

The Jokers burst out of the starting blocks with their debut album, ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’, in 2009, and then spent two years on the road building a substantial live following supporting the likes of Hawkwind, Y&T, Joe Elliot & The Down N Outz, Argent, Anvil and Fozzy.

‘The Big Rock And Roll Show’ was awarded Powerplay Magazine’s album of the month in July 2009, went straight on to Planet Rock Radio’s A Playlist and was universally acclaimed for its rare quality. While mixed by Mike Fraser in Vancouver, (straight after he had mixed AC/DC’s 10 million plus selling Black Ice album), ‘The Big Rock And Roll Show’ was only recorded in guitarist Paul Hurst’s Liverpool living room, with duvets hanging on the walls to help the sound and provide a makeshift vocal booth!

Having sold over 8,000 physical CD’s and 6,000 downloads of ‘The Big Rock And Roll Show’, an incredible amount for a totally independent artist on their own label, The Jokers began writing ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive’ at the end of 2010, determined to produce an even more outstanding sophomore offering. Fired up, and laden with funds from sales of their debut, they hooked up with producer Andy Macpherson (Eric Clapton, The Who, Barclay James Harvest, The Buzzcocks etc), and began putting tracks down in his Revolution Studio in Cheadle Hulme.

When Macpherson heard the potential hit singles that The Jokers were creating, he insisted on perfection in recording every single vocal note, guitar part, and drum thwack. In between recording, (and to pay for all the perfectionist studio sessions) The Jokers spent the subsequent two years gigging round every rock pub and toilet club gig in the North of England, honing their live craft down and testing new songs out to capacity crowds at every concert. ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive’ was then finally mastered by Tim Young at Metropolis studios in London in February 2013.

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

Rabid
Rabid formed in 1979, and after recording a 5-track demo in 1981, they released their debut EP, Bloody Road to Glory, on their own ‘Blank Label’ imprint. The EP was a hit in the UK Indie Chart after receiving airplay from John Peel in his BBC Radio 1 show, reaching number 47, and it also reached No. 14 in the NME Punk chart.

After the EP’s distributor, Fresh, went out of business, owing money to Fall Out Records, Fall Out reissued the EP later in 1982. Rabid appeared on national British television in 1982 on Newswatch U.K. and in a Canadian documentary on the youth of England. During 1983 they played on the same bill as bands such as G.B.H., The Exploited, and the U.K. Subs. Fall Out issued the band’s next release, the 8-track Bring Out Your Dead 12-inch mini-LP, which reached number 45 in the indie chart in 1983, and No. 10 in the NME Punk Chart. The band split up in 1986.

In 2006, Fall Out released a 12-track CD collection of the band’s work, as Bloody Road to Glory, adapting the artwork from the original EP.

Grant formed a new lineup of the band in 2013 with Grant himself on vocals, Steve Ward on bass guitar, Colin Bennett on guitar, and Gaz Johnson on drums. A new compilation, Bloody History, was released in August 2013.

Supports - Wolf Bites Boy + tbc.

All About Time
Local music guru Al Dean teams up with Jay Estridge and Harry Bickles (aka Baz) for a night of timeless tunes, covering the real roots, blues and soul classics as well as plenty of contemporary tracks. Expect everything from Chuck Berry to Jessie J.

Over the years, Al (guitar/vocals) has worked with pretty much every local band, either in the studio or as organiser of the annual Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival. This new project is a pleasant diversion from all those years on bass!

Jay (keys/vocals) is a tremendous musical talent with a great sense of humour and the ability to play a number of instruments. He has worked with many famous artists along the way, most notably as keyboard player for The Ruby Turner Band.

Baz (percussion/vocals) is the newest recruit to the world of rock and roll and has astounded all and sundry with his prowess on the cajon and vocal harmonies. A prodigious young talent!

This is a free gig. 9ish start.

Sylde @ Middlewich Civic Hall, Middlewich View map - Middlewich Civic Hall Permanent link

Slyde
Slyde are a 4 piece Slade Tribute band from Bucks who pay homage to the mighty British institution that is Slade, and faithfully replicate the bawdy singalong tunes, the glam and glitter excess, and the raw rock ‘n’ roll power that was the black country legend’s calling card during their 70′s heyday!

With Slyde frontman Nobby Boulder’s uncanny visual and vocal resemblance to the original tartan trousered Glam Rock God, Slyde will take over 3 decades off the clock for you, back to a time when British Glam Rock was setting the standard worldwide for genuine good time party rock ‘n roll.

Slyde, based in Buckinghamshire, originally formed in August 2001 and have consistently proved themselves to be the UK’s ultimate Slade tribute band.

Advanced tickets £10
On the door £12.50

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.

Vavoom! @ The Market Tavern, Sandbach View map - The Market Tavern 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.”
