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.

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.

Luke Gessner does Bublé

It was not long after that Luke could be found treading the boards at the Regent Theatre as part of Jill Clewes Performing Arts, a basis that polished his performance skills and confidence on stage.

Since then Luke completed an A-Level music course at St. Joseph’s College, and so his career came to life. Another performance at the Regent Theatre followed, starring in Little Shop of Horrors as ‘The Plant.’ This would lead to starring as ‘Galileo’ in We Will Rock You, culminating in performing in New York at the Bleecker Street Theatre in musical ‘The Rippers 5.’

Vavoom! @ Shavington Club, Shavington View map - Shavington 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.”

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.

Expect a mix of popular covers with a selection of original songs too.

Electro 80's @ The Cosey Club, Haslington View map - The Cosey Club 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.

Chris Tavener

Chris Tavener is the witty, satirical songwriter saying things that everybody thinks, but nobody says. Rock ‘n’ roll infused with comedy. Folk dipped in satire. It’s like Peep Show set to music! If Jimmy Carr played guitar...he would be Chris Tavener.

“Comedic genius” - Pop Culture Pipebomb

Chris has been known to play as many as 350 gigs a year, making him one of the most hard-working singer-songwriters in the UK. He’s had endorsements from Carl Barat of The Libertines, Will Ferrell’s ‘Funny Or Die’, Paddy McGuinness, Jamie Lawson and Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music. Steve has played Chris’ tracks four times on national radio.

Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, Chris began writing and producing demo albums annually from age 17. He writes storytelling songs about the ironic comedy in everything from drunken romance, celebrity worship, football hooligans and small town problems. In the past year, Chris has performed at Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Latitude Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe to name but a few.

In 2017, he recorded his first live album in two back-to-back, sold out shows at Manchester’s Three Minute Theatre. He followed that up with a national tour, which included dates supporting the likes of Peep Show’s Super Hans at Manchester Academy. His new album and DVD are set for release in early 2018.

"An interesting lad with an elastic turn of phrase" - Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
"Nice set. Kinks-y vibes" - Carl Barat, The Libertines

Vavoom! @ The Railway, Nantwich View map - The Railway 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 and 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.”
