The definitive guide to live music and gigs in the Crewe area.
After being told time and time again of his resemblance to the late great Bill Haley, Phil decided to put together a group of musicians to form the band 'Phil Haley and his Comments'.
The first to join him was Saxophone player, Allen Paris, and together they set out to build a Rock 'n' Roll stage show that would become one of the most requested performances to come out of the United Kingdom, spreading throughout Europe, and as far away as Australia.
Leeds based Double Bass player Martyn Savage became the third member of the band. The trio then set out to find a drummer to provide the back beat to the music they were so keen to create. Brian Nichols appeared, and his unique style of drumming became the backbone of the bands' music, setting them on the road to becoming one of today's top Rock 'n' Roll tribute bands.
Together the four members of the band began to create a unique style and sound, writing their own songs as well as covering some of the greatest Rock and Roll numbers ever to be written and performed by Bill Haley and the Comets.
After five years of hard work, dedication, and performances up and down the length of the country, Phil Haley and his Comments began to build up a following for their particular style of music further afield. Tour dates in Norway, Finland, France, Germany and Holland - the rest of Europe soon followed.
Today, the foursome have just returned from a successful tour of Australia, where they also recorded their debut CD 'Everybody Needs to Rock', containing ten original songs written by members of the band, plus four covers from Bill Haley's original set.
Don't miss your chance to see and hear this unique tribute band perform live, giving you a taste of the authentic style and sound of the original Rock 'n' Roll years, proving once and for all that the music of Bill Haley and the Comets will never die.
See you later Alligator!
