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

Ska Face

Formed from the desire to return to the classic sounds of their youth, Ska Face contain ten individual members with a combined age of over 450 years. 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.

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.

Hayley Strangelove @ The Eight Farmers, Crewe View map - The Eight Farmers 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.

The Jalapeños have blazed a trail of rock'n'roll mayhem throughout the UK since 1997 and show no signs of stopping!

Slug @ The Black Bear, Sandbach View map - The Black Bear 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.

Gareth Heesom @ The Imperial, Crewe View map - The Imperial Permanent link

Gareth Heesom

Introducing Gareth Heesom, singer, songwriter from Runcorn, Cheshire. A regular on his local music scene, Gareth has cemented his credibility as a powerful and talented musician.

Gareth started out on his path as a budding musicians, as with every musician, at quite a young age.

"I started playing guitar when I was 15, but before that music was always big in our house. My dad played guitar and always had music on, Ralph McTell, Tom Paxton, The Beatles, Don Williams, Billy Joel. I loved all of it and tried to listen to as much different music as I could. I still do."

His songs, like most of the musicians who have inspired him, tend to stay towards relationships and topics that have affected him, drawing on the emotion of these to aid him in giving a great performance. He also has an array of covers which he adds his own spin on too.

I threw myself back into music after a relationship break up. It gave me something to focus on, something to give me a bit of confidence back (It took me a couple of months to get up at an Open Mic Night). I started writing some songs, I found it a massive help to deal with everything going on. Happily, my love life is back on track, as you can probably tell from my songs!"

You produce and sell your own Tickets and take all the door money.

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!

Wilson McGladdery @ The Imperial, Crewe View map - The Imperial Permanent link

Wilson McGladdery

Gaynor Wilson is a singer songwriter originally from Ashton under Lyne, now living in Saddleworth. Gaynor plays both violin and piano although she is best known as a singer with a powerful stage presence that commands the full attention of her audience. Gaynor especially enjoys the freedom of acoustic singing and the intimate audiences found in acoustic and folk clubs where the potency of her performance is witnessed to it's full effect.

Paul McGladdery is a singer songwriter from Saddleworth. He is a guitarist known for his prolific songwriting encompassing a variety of styles and influences from folk to country to classic pop. Primarily, Paul loves to write a ballad and his songs "Take me to Mary" "View" and "Daydream #1" are often the high points of the couples performance. Paul also enjoys a cruel sense of humour and this regularly translates into his lyrics of songs such as "40".

Gaynor and Paul met through fellow musicians. After initial rehearsals, they realised their voices blended well together and that they shared a common goal to promote their original songs rather than plough the well worn furrow of covering famous songs. They decided to join forces to enhance the reputations and audiences they had built as both solo artists and working with bands. Their strong friendship shows in their performances, which are witty, heartfelt and a feast of original material.

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.

Madame Butterfly @ Lyceum Theatre, Crewe View map - Lyceum Theatre Permanent link

Madame Butterfly

Madam Butterfly – one of the most colourful & exotic operas
Music by Giacomo Puccini
Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.
Sung in Italian with English Subtitles

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live orchestra with over 30 musicians

This tale of the doomed love of an American naval lieutenant and his young Japanese bride inspired Puccini to write some of his most sublime and beautiful music. Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas, and from its theme of noble self-sacrifice spring melodies that grips your heart.

The basis of the plot is actually a true story of a Japanese geisha girl who had a son by ‘marriage’ to an American naval officer who soon deserted her, leaving her heartbroken.

With all the cultural sensitivity of a day-tripper, Lt B.F. Pinkerton is making himself at home in Nagasaki. On the suggestion of his friend Sayre, he takes a Japanese wife and house for the duration of his stay there. Pinkerton set his sights on Cio Cio San, fragile and delicate as a butterfly. In order to become his bride she must cross cultural boundaries and defy the will of her family.

Pinkerton’s ship eventually sets sail from Japan. In his absence and unbeknownst to him, she gives birth to their child, a son whom she names Trouble. As time goes by, Cio Cio San is still convinced that Pinkerton will return to her some day.

She argues furiously with Susuki, her faithful maid, who believes foreign husbands never return.

The most touching moments in the opera are when Butterfly, prepared for the worst, spies his ship sailing into harbour ‘just when you all tell me to weep and forgive him… he’s there! He loves me!

Pinkerton finally appears with his American wife. He has come to take away his son but leaves it to the American Consul to do the dirty job. Shaken to the core, Cio Cio San obeys her husband’s will and hands over her son.

The grief and dishonour is too much for her to bear and she kills herself. Pinkerton does return later only to find her cold body.

This touching story of innocent love crushed amidst two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.

The original Pumps were to be found gigging extensively round the pubs and clubs of the North West in the early 1980’s, usually as a three piece playing high energy new wave influenced rock music, more commonly known as Power Pop these days. They eventually fizzled out after a succession of guitarists failed to stick around…special mentions to Noel, Steve, Trev, Phil and Paul who all spanked their planks with us at some time.

And then original members Ken and Dave decided it was time to have some fun again and get the show back on the road. Recording sessions have taken place and a record company is making interesting noises. A new drummer and guitarist have been recruited and gigs have been booked. Yes, thirty years later its Pumpin’ time again!

Blood Brothers

LYN PAUL returns from her West End run to her role as ‘THE DEFINITIVE MRS JOHNSTONE’ - MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary BLOOD BROTHERS tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning BLOOD BROTHERS. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail).

Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role she has played many times in the West End, in fact she was the show’s final Mrs Johnstone when it closed at The Phoenix Theatre in 2012. Lyn also starred in Bill Kenwright’s tour of Cabaret with Will Young in 2013 and rose to fame as a member of the pop group New Seekers whose numerous number one hits include ‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing’ which sold over 20 million copies.

The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Higher-On-Maiden @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

Higher On Maiden

‘Higher on Maiden’ were formed in the U.K. around 1995 and are The World’s Original and Finest Tribute to the Mighty ‘Iron Maiden’

For the last 19 years they have played shows in every corner of the UK, Europe and most recently, India, where one gig was broadcast on live TV, in front of 6000 screaming fans.

Higher-on-Maiden are the only Iron Maiden Tribute who’s members have actually played on stage with Steve Harris, Adrian Smith, Nicko McBrain, Paul Dianno & Blaze Bayley.

And when Bruce Dickinson was at one of their shows in Sweden he commented to Higher-on-Maiden’s front man, ‘Big Dickinson’ …… “You sound just like me !!! … I always wondered what I sang on that bit!”

Higher-on-Maiden have a genuine passion for the music of Iron Maiden coupled with a desire to recreate the live sound as closely as possible.

As a review in Terrorizer Magazine said, “Normally a cover band wouldn’t warrant a review in Terrorizer, but this lot were so much fun that they are worth a mention. They have the guitar sound down pat, ‘Steve Harris’ is a dead ringer for ‘Arry and the best part was that the set list was one great song after another.

Higher-on-Maiden is a great night out for you and the mates to rock out and have a beverage. Eddie even shows up to give his blessing too.”

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.

bon jovi experience

THE BON JOVI EXPERIENCE featuring Jon By Jovi.

The Bon Jovi Experience are the worlds first and finest tribute to the great Bon Jovi and are the worlds ONLY tribute to have been requested by and to have performed live on stage with Jon Bon Jovi himself they are also the only tribute to have been featured on the official Bon Jovi website.

The BJE features Jon Bon Jovi clone frontman Tony (Jon) but unlike many other tributes the great musicians accompanying him are also top look-alikes: Ed ( Richie Sambora) – Guitars, Jon(Tico Torres) - Drums, Steve (Hugh McDonald) - Bass and Steve (Dave Bryan) – Keyboards. Individually and as a band they produce the looks and sounds of the real thing so closely that -

We quote:

“Having The BJE perform here was, without question, like having the actual stadium band in my club”

“The difference between watching the BJE and any other Bon Jovi tribute band is that with other bands you realize they are just a tribute but as you watch The BJE you forget they are a tribute they are just that good”.

"You could almost be fooled into thinking that this band was the real thing".

"Quite simply a mirror image of the man himself"

" Have you seen this guy he looks so much like Jon Bon Jovi it's freaky man" - Chad Kroeger (Nickelback)

“The best tribute I've ever seen” – JON BON JOVI.

Tony has been performing the music of Bon Jovi for nearly 20 years now and the band were the first to be asked to perform on the US New Jersey tribute album, “Garden State of Mind”. He is the only UK Bon Jovi tribute band frontman to actually be asked to appear on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast show with the real Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora.

They were told by BBC Radio 1 DJ and TV personality, Chris Evans, that “they were the best tribute band he had ever seen” and were also asked to appear live on Chris’s show. The band has a significant fan base not to mention Tony's various TV and film appearances, including ITV's International Stars and their Doubles hosted by Dale Winton, BBC's Doctors series and British film Kinky Boots.

This band played at The Limelight under their former name of By Jovi & packed the place out, selling out their gigs three times a year for many years! They put on a fantastic show both musically and visually! Expect all the classic hits of the original band in a show full of great songs including Livin’ On A prayer’, You Give Love A bad Name’, ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ & loads more!!

This is the only Bon Jovi tribute band to have performed live with Jon Bon Jovi!!

Kyla Brox @ Crown Ballroom, Nantwich View map - Crown Ballroom Permanent link

Kyla Brox

Kyla was born to sing. Hailing from Manchester, she grew up listening to her dad playing the blues and her mum singing opera. At the age of 12 her dreams turned to reality when she started performing in her father's band, The Victor Brox Blues Train. Since then, Kyla has grown to be an incredible singer, widely regarded as Britain's number one female Blues singer.

Kyla’s voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer’s art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old.

“An authentic soul diva… sensitive, sexy, and with infinite reserves of sassiness” – City Life

“A classic sound pulled off with finesse… classy, impressive…” – Oldham Chronicle

“Great voice, great presence, great songs, great band…” – Leicester Mercury

Aynsley Lister Band - “His guitar playing is a fire hazard” – MOJO
When explosive natural ability collides with fiery, emotionally charged compositions, the result is Aynsley Lister; an incredible guitarist whose brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary song writing fueled with the kind of heart and soul that’s missing from so much modern music.


Red Butler - ‘Best New UK Act’ 2014 via the Writers Poll for Blues Matters!
Drawing upon influences from SRV, Etta James, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Free, King King, Santana and Derek Trucks the band have developed their own style of writing and have begun producing thoughtful, light hearted and melodic compositions.

FM

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.

Back again by popular demand and featuring local guitar hero Jim Kirkpatrick. With origins back in the 80's this seminal AOR band still holds massive appeal and was a sell out in 2015. FM are back on tour and we are pleased and proud to welcome them back to the Festival.

Less tribute and more homage, Nearly Dan is saviour to the growing legions of Dan fans, desperate to hear the meticulously crafted grooves and allusive lyrical style of Donald Fagen & Walter Becker.

Supported by Both Sides Now - Sarah Miller's rich vocal and guitar intertwine with Aidan Goldstraw's expressive keyboard playing to build an evocative panorama of Joni Mitchell's most iconic songs.

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.
