The Orchard Acoustic Sessions are a regular showcase of acts which takes place in the intimate studio environment of Orchard Studios in Oakhanger, Cheshire.

This year's show sees Canadian Singer Songwriter Ashley Fayth perform songs from her upcoming album "Take Back The Fire" in a solo acoustic set. With several songs featured on Radio 2 and performances at CMJ and SXSW, Ashley's an acclaimed act that is definitely worth catching now.

Also appearing on the night are Derbyshire based band We Have You Covered, who will be delivering a "live lounge" style performance of classic and contemporary hits. Expect anything from The Beatles to Mark Ronson from this up-and-coming trio.

The shows are recorded for both sound and video and are free entry but ticketed. Places can be reserved by emailing info@warble-events.co.uk or calling into Gee's Kitchen itself.

The performance takes place on Thursday 2nd July 2015 at 8.30pm (10.30pm finish) at Gee's Kitchen, George's Walk in Sandbach.

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.”

Toyah Willcox @ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich View map - Nantwich Civic Hall Permanent link

Toyah

Toyah Wicox the original Princess of Punk hits the Civic Stage on Friday 10th July with her Close Up and Personal Tour.

From punk princess to high priestess of TV, Toyah Willcox is a uniquely gifted performer. Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, she is one of Britain’s iconic household names – an award-winning rock legend as well as a much-loved actress and music composer.

In a career spanning thirty years Toyah has had thirteen top 40 singles, recorded twenty albums, written two books, appeared in over forty stage plays, made ten feature films and presented such diverse television programmes as The Good Sex Guide Late, Watchdog and Songs Of Praise.

It all began in her hometown Birmingham in 1977 when film director Derek Jarman offered her the role of ‘Mad’ in seminal punk epic Jubilee. She continued to gain strong roles, appearing alongside Katherine Hepburn in the film, The Corn is Green, as well as playing ‘Monkey’ in the legendary Quadrophenia. She teamed up with Jarman again to play Miranda in his innovative version of The Tempest, which won her a nomination as Best Newcomer at the 1980 Evening Standard Awards.

By this time Toyah’s band was gaining critical success with the debut single Victims of the Riddle (no.1 in the independent charts) and six track EP Sheep Farming in Barnet. Her first album, The Blue Meaning, became a Top 40 hit. A TV Documentary “Toyah”, an accompanying live album Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! – as well as hit singles It’s A Mystery, I Want to Be Free, Brave New World and Be Proud, Be Loud, Be Heard plus the platinum albums Anthem and The Changeling – confirmed her status as one of the most significant talents of the Eighties.
In 1982 she won the Best Female Singer at the Rock & Pop Awards.

In 2002 Toyah proved her staying power selling out eleven stadium gigs for the Here and Now Tour. Musically, Toyah has remained fresh, uncompromising and ground-breaking. In 2007 she signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Zomba Music. Alongside this Toyah began a collaboration with Bill Rieflin (REM) and Chris Wong on the band project, The Humans. Toyah continues to be seen on film with her recently completed starring role in the British film Power of Three, a light-hearted feel-good comedy that follows the adventures of 3 friends who pool their strengths when the going gets tough. Toyah still maintains her multi-faceted and vibrant career.

Slug @ The Brunswick, Crewe View map - The Brunswick 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.

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.

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.

Neville Staple @ The Box, Crewe View map - The Box Permanent link

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.
