Artizan @ The Four Eagles, Crewe View map - The Four Eagles Permanent link

Artizan

Artizan was formed in October 2012.

The band was formed to bring a high-octane rock show to the local scene, playing popular anthems spanning from 70’s to modern hard anthems.

Expect tracks from the likes of Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Stereophonics, Tears For Fears, Kings Of Leon, Journey, Van Halen... The list goes on!!

The bands question wass simple - with the rawest organic ingredients (drums, bass, two guitars and a voice) can they play a set that others dare not spoil (with respect of course!)? Their positive answer was down to the ethos 'playing the easy tracks is simply not good enough anymore'. Naturally the odd track here and there needs to be a dance floor filler - The band understands, this is a must - but the band needed to stand out and the tracks they choose have been carefully selected to leave you remembering that hit of the 80’s that takes you back to your school days or a mad night out!!!

The show includes a big sound and lights with exceptional musicianship with a goal to capture your attention with nothing but live instruments.
Each member of the band have been involved in past live music projects from AB/CD (probably the best AC/DC tribute there ever was), Muthahumbucker (a remarkable rock covers band), Urban Gorilla (classic rock and blues at its best) to Stereotonics and The Dick & Dom Show (for real!)

This is an afternoon show. 5.30pm start.

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.
