Beardsmith @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven Permanent link

Beardsmith

Beardsmith are a six piece family band from Cheshire, consisting of Neil, four sons, Graham, Gary, Ged, Gil and one sister, Alice.

The band have been together for 12 years, firstly as a 4 piece, which included Neil, Graham, Gary, and Ged, and then changed to a 6 piece in 2011. Even though Gil does not appear at every show he is still a permanent member of the band.

Since the band started, Beardsmith have aimed to be the very best they can be, which is the thought that is behind every live performance and every song they write and record. 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.

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 continued 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. They went on to appear 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.

Hayley Strangelove @ The Brunswick, Crewe View map - The Brunswick Permanent link

Hayley Strangelove

Hayley Strangelove is an acoustic singer/songwriter, hailing from Merseyside and currently residing in Crewe, Cheshire...

30-something years old with fire engine coloured hair, a beat up guitar and a unique outlook on life, Hayley wrote her first song at the tender age of 19 after banging out some chords and being pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

After singing in many cover bands, ranging from jazz and blues through to heavy rock, Hayley formed her own band in 2001 to write original material and put her own style of music on the map.

After experimenting with different sounds, different people, different versions of songs and finally learning to play some instruments herself, Hayley decided the only way was solo (sometimes!!).

And so here we have a gal with a guitar, an eclectic array of unusual self penned gems, often written with tongue planted firmly in her cheek, but all originating and delivered straight from the heart.

Ska Face @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Ska Face

Formed from the desire to return to the classic sounds of our youth, Ska Face contain ten individual members with a combined age of over 450 years between them. Old enough to know better but young and foolish enough to attempt to re-write the rule book and enjoy music with the passion and honesty that it was designed for. An antidote to the mass meritocracy that is played across the country in a world dominated by media hype, spin and untruths. Ska Face keep it real and enjoy every minute with an infectious stage show of power, energy and damn good tunes that you just have to dance to. There is no better remedy to a stressful week than a few cheeky drinks and dancing like a loon… and that is just the band!

Fronted by the enigmatic Tony Montana and featuring a phenomenal four-piece brass section, Ska Face pack a punch from the first note. With a rhythm section as tight as Alberto’s wallet and lead licks that compliment the music perfectly, the legendary Rico Rodriguez praised the ‘heavy riddim section’ when first performing with the guys back in 2011. Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation has accompanied the boys on stage regularly since the same year and 2 Tone Records founder member and former Special Jerry Dammers was highly impressed with the energy and authenticity of the Ska Face performance when he joined them for a gig in June 2013. In 2014, the band has evolved another level, with bookings as support for both The Selecter and Bad Manners.

Revitalising the Ska and 2 Tone classics of The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat and Bad Manners plus many others from the late 70s and early 80s, Ska Face sparked a 2 Tone revival across the north of England. Not content with just playing the songs of their contemporaries, the boys have been writing songs of their own as well as adapting a select number of recordings for the purist. Their debut and aptly titled ‘That Difficult First Album’ was launched to wide acclaim in May 2012 and followed up the following year with a re-working of The Beat’s ‘Psychedelic Rockers’ for the Specialised 2 double compilation album, raising funds for The Teenage Cancer Trust. Currently busy writing and recording original material for their second album, Ska Face are keen to capture their onstage energy and fun in the studio, which is due for release in 2014.

Ska Face regularly travel up and down the country, delivering their message to venues across the UK from Blackpool to Batley, Preston to Pontefract and Coventry to Camden with everywhere in between. There are a number of Ska bands out there, but very few share the energy and drive of Ska Face. Avoid disappointment and beware of cheap imitations, if you want authentic Ska and 2 Tone, then you would be hard pressed to beat the Ska Face experience.

Beardsmith are a six piece family band from Cheshire, consisting of Neil, four sons, Graham, Gary, Ged, Gil and one sister, Alice.

The band have been together for 12 years, firstly as a 4 piece, which included Neil, Graham, Gary, and Ged, and then changed to a 6 piece in 2011. Even though Gil does not appear at every show he is still a permanent member of the band.

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.

Neville Staple

The original Rude Boy Neville Staple

Neville Staple is credited with changing the face of pop music not only once but twice!

Neville Staple’s thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented. From the early days with The Coventry Automatics, The Specials, & FunBoy3 in the late ‘70s and 80’s, to The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the 90’s up to the present day.

Following on from the 2009 Specials reunion and his departure from the band in late 2012, he continues to be a forerunner of the ska movement, and continues to thrill audiences with his own excellent band at venues and festival appearances worldwide.

2013 saw the return of Neville Staple, ‘The Original Rudeboy’ with extensive touring of the UK including many festivals.

Expect to hear some of Neville’s own material, some arrangements of his very favourite old school Ska numbers, as well as some classic hits in the mix.

Nevile’s autobiography, THE ORIGINAL RUDE BOY, was published by Aurum Press in the UK in May 2009.
