Electro 80's

The Eighties were a time of radical changes in both music and fashion.

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.

Bobby Dazzler @ The Railway Inn, Alsager View map - The Railway Inn Permanent link

Bobby Dazzler

Bobby Dazzler started singing when he was just 15. He used to sneak Into a local pub where they had "Open Mic" sessions. The compere was none other than Pete Conway who is Robbie Williams's father who would sing songs from Englebert Humperdinck, Tom Jones and Johnny Mathis. Bobby then decided to have a go for himself, singing songs from The Rat Pack, Bobby Darin etc, to which Pete suggested he had a future singing.

Time passed and after a few years Bobby attended a friends bar opening and got up to sing a few songs, he was then asked to run the karaoke two nights a week. This is where it all started. He was soon established as a karaoke entertainer and offers from other bars came flooding in and he was working seven nights a week.
This continued for a number of years, before a rest was needed. He met his future wife and decided to take a well earned break. After six months The Dazzer was getting his fever back, and also had plans to live abroad, so in June 2005 The Dazzler and his family moved to the Costa Del Sol, where, after singing in the bars, work offers came flooding in and The Dazzler was back on the road twenty years on from where it all started.

Now back in the UK, expect hits from the 60's 70's 80's, ballads, soul, reggae and more...

Don't forget your dancing shoes!

Kicking off The Nantwich Jazz Festival Weekend, The Studio presents

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 (charity donations welcome)

Rivers & Kidd @ Offbeat Brewery, Crewe View map - Offbeat Brewery Permanent link

Rivers & Kidd

#FinalFriday at Offbeat brewery with Rivers & Kidd.
Rivers and Kidd have developed their own unique style, with original material and new interpretations of well known songs.

It was during the recording of the CD Different Skies that Martin Rivers met Jaqi Kidd, rekindling a friendship that began many years ago. There was an immediate creative spark that came from a common interest in mind body and spirit. Out of this meeting came synergy, where the whole became greater the the sum of the parts; and a new musical partnership was born.
Martin Rivers was an actual punk back in the late 1970's playing guitar with The Uninvited. They were best known for the track “Doing the East Berlin”, which can be found on the compilation LP “Cry Havoc”, which was released on Slip Records. It is now a sought after collectors item. He then went on to become a founding member of Tower Struck Down before departing to pursue different musical interests.

Jaqi Kidd was lead singer in the band Lynx. She has recently returned to the music scene after taking time out and is currently writing new material. She is a holistic therapist and a practitioner of Reiki and Qigong. Jaqi is keen to take Rivers and Kidd to the next level and her voice brings soul and depth to their music.

It was at the first Crewe Steampunk Convivial in 2016 that Rivers & Kidd were introduced to the world of Steampunk. This opened a whole new world of exciting possibilities that they wholeheartedly embraced; and this is adding a new visual dynamic to their stage show. They recently played The 2017 Crewe Steampunk Convivial with their latest member Jasper the Steampug who unashamedly stole the show.

Kossoff... The Band Plays On @ Eleven, Sandyford View map - Eleven Permanent link

Kossoff... The Band Plays On

Billed as Kossoff - The Band Plays On..., Terry Slesser has put together a fine ensemble of high-calibre musicians to pay tribute to the legendary guitarist Paul Kossoff.

This is not your regular 'tribute' act, as Terry was vocalist in Kossoffs' post-Free outfit Back Street Crawler for their entire lifespan. This marks the first time since the seventies that Slesser has taken the Back Street Crawler catalogue (and some choice Free tracks) on the road.

Front-man Terry Slesser sure knows how to captivate an audience. He's got some seriously entertaining anecdotes in his armoury which are all delivered with style and panache.
Guitarist John Buckton has the Kossoff sound down to an absolute tee and that's no huge surprise when you consider that Free drummer Simon Kirke has said "If Free were to reform, John would be my first choice as guitarist."
Buckton has captured the soul and rawness of Koss' playing - Paul Kossoff had his own unique / standout style and it lives on in John Buckton's fretboard.
Also Included in the line-up is former UFO, Wild Horses, Uli Jon Roth and Pat Travers' drummer Clive Edwards.
Dave Chapman on Keyboards and Rick Hunt on bass complete the line up.

Paul Kossoff was revered by music fans and fellow musicians alike and his music shone through along with his personality ...all brought to life in a show of sheer quality which pays homage to the highly talented and much missed guitarist.

The Bon Jovi Experience @ The Studio, Nantwich View map - The Studio Permanent link

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!!

Dr. Feelgood / Climax Blues Band / Walklate & Fuschi @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Dr Feelgood

Fantastic Triple Bill event!

Dr Feelgood
Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s Dr. Feelgood remains one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world.
The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the U.K. charts.
Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator - which gave the group their first gold record.

Climax Blues Band
2018 is a milestone year for The Climax Blues Band as they celebrate 50 years since their formation and will be touring extensively featuring guest appearances past lineups and Nantwich Jazz Festival are pleased to welcome them to the festival in such a momentous year for the band.
The band of today carries the same standard of quality as it did when the band formed back in the late 60s and achieved such great success and recognition through the 70s and 80s, huge selling albums like FM / Live and Gold Plated, the 1976 hit single Couldn’t Get It Right (from Gold plated) and I Love You in 1981.

Walklate & Fuschi
Mat and Paolo are an “Electric Blues Duo” from Manchester.
They use old tube amplifiers creating a rich tone that roots their sound in the very early days of amplified Blues.
The result is a magical performance that stands out for its intensity and energy.
Although there are two people on stage, they sound like a 10 piece Blues band.
Living in Manchester and strongly influenced by its Afro-Caribbean community, Mat and Paolo also pay homage to Ska, blending its uplifting rhythms with the spirit and sentiment of the Blues.

The Milk Men

The Milk Men is a band made up from the cream of British R’n’B talent and pedigree.

Bringing together members of the legendary Pirates, and British Blues Award-nominated The Mustangs, The Milk Men have been tearing up venues·and festivals·all over the UK with their dynamic, white hot versions of classic blues tunes, alongside unforgettable foot-stomping originals.

With former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of Pirate legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues singer Jamie Smy on vocals, the band is rounded off on guitar by Adam Norsworthy, singer and guitarist in The Mustangs.

The Milk Men’s sound has been called ‘ZZ/DC Feelgood” by some critics, who have lavished praise on the band’s dynamic live show and original songs. But the band draws its influences from all corners of the blues world, from early Rod Stewart , through classic Fleetwood Mac, to the heavier blues leanings of ZZ Top and AC/DC.

The Milk Men @ The Studio, Nantwich View map - The Studio Permanent link

The Milk Men

The Milk Men is a band made up from the cream of British R’n’B talent and pedigree.

Bringing together members of the legendary Pirates, and British Blues Award-nominated The Mustangs, The Milk Men have been tearing up venues·and festivals·all over the UK with their dynamic, white hot versions of classic blues tunes, alongside unforgettable foot-stomping originals.

With former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of Pirate legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues singer Jamie Smy on vocals, the band is rounded off on guitar by Adam Norsworthy, singer and guitarist in The Mustangs.

The Milk Men’s sound has been called ‘ZZ/DC Feelgood” by some critics, who have lavished praise on the band’s dynamic live show and original songs. But the band draws its influences from all corners of the blues world, from early Rod Stewart , through classic Fleetwood Mac, to the heavier blues leanings of ZZ Top and AC/DC.

The Delta Waves @ The Bank Stage, Nantwich View map - The Bank Stage Permanent link

The Delta Waves

Formed from the ashes of popular local bands Innuendo, The Resistance, Bedlam to name but a few, you could call The Delta Waves a local 5-piece supergroup.

Coming together through a chance rehearsal that resembled Cilla Black's Blind Date in late 2015, the band spotted a hole in the local gig scene and have focused on festival-oriented, popular alternative music - much of it rooted in the 90's, alongside other undeniable crowd pleasers that you won't hear from other rock-rooted bands in the area.

Listen out for well known hits from Radiohead, Supergrass, The Mock Turtles, Biffy Clyro, Fall Out Boy, James, The Hives, The Strokes, Placebo, Royal Blood, Stereophonics and many more... and if you're lucky, even a bit of Paula Abdul and Gloria Gaynor!

Oh Boy! Itâs the non-stop SIXTIES

It’s said that if you remember the 60’s you weren’t there!
Strange then that these 60’s artists are among the best remembered artists of all time.

Who could forget hits such as, ‘The Crying Game’, ‘Mama’ and ‘Little Things’ from Dave Berry, ‘Twist & Shout’, ‘Do You Love Me’ & ‘Candyman’ from Brian Poole, ‘Hitchin a Ride’, ‘Early in the Morning’ & ‘I Live For The Sun’ from Vanity Fare, and the unforgettable voice of Mike Pender from The Searchers on ‘Sweets For My Sweets’, ‘Needles & Pins’, and ‘Don’t Throw Your Love Away’.

Surely, a show to remember from the ORIGINAL stars of the 60’s.

Free At Last @ The Railway, Nantwich View map - The Railway Permanent link

Free At Last

Free at Last were formed in 1982 under the name Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam featured three of the current members, Jak (guitar/vocals), Shane (guitar) and Mick (drums) until Dave joined on bass in 1994.

Uncle Sam's set contained a few original songs plus covers by such classic acts as ZZ Top, Pat Travers and of course Free. All the guys in the band have always had a great passion for the music of Free, so in 1996 when deciding to create a tribute there was only one choice who it would be.

Since then they have gone from strength to strength headlining at Bill Flynn's Free Convention and playing many of the top venues around the country, universally agreed to be the best Free and Bad Company tribute around.

With the original Bad Company reforming to promote their Anthology 2cd set, Paul Rodgers releasing solo albums and joining Queen as their singer for a world tour, it only serves to prove sustained interest in what the band are trying to recreate.

So for a show of 70's style red hot blues influenced, soul stealing ROCK the choice must be FREE AT LAST!
