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!


Faces 4 Radio @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven Permanent link

Faces 4 Radio

The result of a cruel scientific experiment F4R manifests itself as a trio of wandering minstrels. Dave Elliott (drums), Andy Garner (bass) and Lee Garner (guitar) terrorize the locals with their close harmony singing and soothsaying. These guys have been knocking around in various guises for nearly 20 years and just like a bad penny they keep turning up again and again with faces that only a mother could love.

Their performance consists of an eclectic mix of material centering round the late 70's and early 80's. The odd classic from the 60's and a few interesting modern choices complete a collection of songs that other bands rarely attempt. Delivered with gusto, there's something for everyone - even if they are 'The Ugliest Band in Town!' Like a cross between Marty Feldman and Arthur Askey they'll leave you feeling wide eyed and legless!

Jim is primarily known as the guitarist with British melodic rock legends FM with whom he has toured with such greats as Journey, Foreigner and Toto as well as having appeared at festivals such as Download and Graspop.

With FM Jim has co-written three albums and several Radio 2 playlisted songs. As well as his tenure in FM, Jim plays guitar regularly for Whitesnake's Bernie Marsden (writer of Here I Go Again) and singer/songwriter Thea Gilmore and is regarded as one of the UK's premier slide guitarists.

Monkey Finger

Fresh from a tour of L.A (The Leek Area), Monkey Finger are a punchy 4 piece serving up a hearty dose of classic rock covers topped with a liberal sprinkling of the blues. Drawing on classics from masters including Free, Bad Company, Gary Moore and ZZ Top, all delivered with their unique brand of 'Monkeyness', they are a must-see for all lovers of groove-laden quality.

So if you are lucky enough to catch them, get yourself ready for a night of quality classic rock (the gift that keeps on giving) with only one warning - prolonged exposure is guaranteed to make you a fully-fledged 'Monkey Fingerer!'

Meet The Beatles @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Meet The Beatles

Meet the Beatles are one of the finest new tributes to The Beatles.

From the costumes they wear, to the perfect harmonies and all of the replica instruments, they deliver the most authentic sound and look since the sixties.

It's worth mentioning that Steve from the band has even gone to the lengths of learning to play bass guitar left handed, just like Paul McCartney. We think you'll agree that's real attention to detail!

Playing all the hits from the early Moptop days through to the final rooftop performance, this is surely a night not to be missed.

Take a step back in time and recapture the glorydays of the original Merseybeat sound with these four fresh faces on a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Tickets £10 from the venue (click the venue link above for more details).

La Traviata @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

La Traviata

Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Sung in Italian with English Subtitles

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live orchestra.

This haunting tragedy with its beautiful areas will transport you to the world in which it is set.

La Traviata is an Opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave - a love story shrouded in sacrifice and misunderstanding. Masterpiece in its own right, it contains some of Verdi’s most beautiful and memorable music.

The title La Traviata means literally The Fallen Woman, or perhaps more figuratively, The Woman Who Strayed.

It is based on La Dame aux Camélias, a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, fils. It recounts Dumas’ true-life affair with the beautiful demi-mondaine, Marie Duplessis.

A courtesan called Violetta is stuck in a round of endless parties until, Alfredo, a geeky writer, convinces her to live in the country. Deeply in love, all is blissful contentment until some home truths convince her to leave Alfredo and head back into the arms of another…Shadowing Violetta is the disease that so often afflicts morally questionable 19th-century women: consumption.

Verdi’s music encompasses an astonishing range of moods and emotions, from Alfredo’s fresh-faced charms to Violetta’s vivid effervescence, which is perfectly captured in ‘Sempre libera’, a vocal showpiece to rival any other.

A tragic and resonant tale of society and morality, La Traviata combines compelling characters with hugely powerful, moving and instantly recognisable melodies, making it still, 162 years after its 1853 debut, one of the most emotionally engaging and popular Operas of all time.

To see this opera is to have an experience of unforgettable emotive power and reflection.

£28.50, Concessions £2 off

A £1.50 per ticket booking fee applies, capped at six per order. Fee-free booking for Friends of The Lyceum; Groups of 10+ please call 01270 368 242 to buy fee-free.

The Jalapeños stand out as a trio of rockers who take turns with their distinctive lead vocals and all get to play at the front of the stage. The Jalapeños have blazed a trail of rock'n'roll mayhem throughout the UK since 1997 and show no signs of stopping!

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

Walkway

Being asked back to support Status Quo on tour again this year, and having previously supported The Darkness & Black Stone Cherry, Walkway’s distinct vocals, jaw dropping solos and solid rhythm section have created a huge buzz and gained the band the reputation as one of the UK’s best unsigned and potential breakthrough rock bands.

Formed in 2007 and only in their early twenties, Walkway are a heavy touring rock band, originating from East Anglia.

Touring extensively, including shows in Europe (2013 & 2014 totalling a staggering 229 shows), two successful releases in the band’s debut album 'Top Shelf Content' (Dec 2012), and highly anticipated second album “Streetwise” (Sept 2014), plus national airplay on BBC Radio 2, Walkway have a huge national fan-base of all ages and a large ever growing online fan base to match.

To coincide with the “Streetwise” release, the band unveiled an Official Music Video for the first single off the record 'Streetwise'. The video reached over 1000 views in its first 24 hours and over 50,000 views in it’s first two weeks; proving to be a huge success with people watching from around the globe.

+ The Jokers

The Jokers, who hail from the North West of England, were formed in 2006, with the aim of creating the world’s greatest rock and roll band. Their debut album, ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’, while mixed by Mike Fraser in Vancouver, (straight after he had mixed AC/DC’s 10 million plus selling Black Ice album), 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.

Released in June 2009, ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’ was awarded 8/10 in Classic Rock’s Summer 2009 issue by scribe Dom Lawson, who stated that “If you’re going to start nominating yourself for the intermittently vacant position of rock’n’roll standard bearers, you’d better have the sound, the swagger and the songs. Fortunately, The Jokers have all three in large amounts. Frontman Wayne Parry has one of those voices designed to incite a riot of dancing and Olympic standard drinking, and every song is alive with a real sense of joyful bonhomie. Most attempts to nail that elusive rock’n’roll spirit fall flat because the band simply don’t have the juice. The Jokers, meanwhile, are swimming in it.” The band 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, selling over 8000 CD’s and 6,000 downloads of ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’ on their own independent record label along the way.

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.”

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.

Cheap Purple @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Cheap Purple

Formed in Liverpool in Spring 2005. This band needed to happen!

Not only does Gary possess a passing resemblance to Ian Gillan himself, his amazing vocal acrobatics certainly brings the Gillan stage persona thundering to life! Gary has been performing classic rock around the venues of Liverpool and Wirral for many years and this experience on the boards shines through.

Ian Bamford's virtuosity on guitar superbly compliments that of Speed King Ritchie Blackmore. Ian's faithful reproduction of Mr. Blackmore's twiddly bits is indeed a marvel to behold. Like Gary, Ian has been performing in local bands for years and toured Europe extensively with Frank Zappa tribute The Muffin Men.

On bass is the inimitable Keith Mulholland whose bass playing is second to none. Now, if you are a true Deep Purple anorak, Keith should be familiar to you. Keith was the bass player with Garth Rocket and the Moonshiners, Ian Gillan's alter ego in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Keith toured and recorded with Gillan and is still in touch with him. So you never know who might turn up at a Cheap Purple gig!

On keyboards is their very own Jon Lord, Gordon Tartt. Apart from working with Cheap Purple he has been seen knocking out the odd tune or two in his excellent Pink Floyd tribute, Uncomfortably Numb. However in Cheap Purple tickling the ivories Jon Lord style is the order of the day and, as in the tradition of Mr. Lord, Gordon certainly keeps those ivories smiling!

Last but by no means least is stalwart powerhouse of thunder, the amazing Mr. Paul Ryan. Rhino has been teaching drum kits a lesson for longer than he cares to remember. Like Ian Bamford, Rhino has toured extensively at home and abroad as drummer for Zappa tribute The Muffin Men, working with greats such as Jimmy Carl Black of The Mothers of Invention fame. He has also worked with Keith on sessions with Ian Gillan as part of the Garth Rocket project.

Cheap Purple has managed brilliantly to recreate the sound and feel of an original Deep Purple show. The power and energy blasts from the stage, transporting the audience back to the heady days of the 1970s when British Rock - true classic rock - ruled the World. This band is a truly must see experience.

Slug @ The Market Tavern, Sandbach View map - The Market Tavern 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.

Vavoom! @ The Raven, Crewe View map - The Raven 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.”

This is a free afternoon show. 4pm start.
