Kevin Montgomery & Tommy Allsup

In 1959, guitarist Tommy Allsup lost the flip of a coin for a seat on a plane. It was on the Buddy Holly flight which crashed, killing Buddy, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Kevin’s dad wrote songs with Buddy, before The Crickets and Kevin has always featured those songs in his live set. The show begins acoustically with Kevin and Tommy, being joined for the second part of the show by Danny White on bass and Paul Griffith on drums.

Wed 4

plus RB Morris
Seven talented musicians who, with great panache, create music full of interest and energy- music that’s very much their own, but revels in a world of influences, from czardas to ska, samba to tango, and all stops between.With a dynamic all-female front line – powerful vocals, saxes, violin, trombone, clarinet, accordion, and a deeply groovy backline, it makes for a big sound- dancey and multi -layered. Salmagundi have played many venues and festivals including The Big Session, Buddhafield, Riverside, One World - a band not to be missed.

Thu 5

Chris Conway & The Super Session
£4adv £5door
Chris Conway is an extraordinary singer songwriter with songs that cast a spell and amuse, delivered with a soulful voice reminiscent of David Crosby or James Taylor, and extraordinary musicianship on a host of instruments. He presents a two part program. In the first half Chris Conway features some of his best loved songs from his 8 albums and new ones from his latest Songs for Dreamers CD. In the second half he gathers a circle of old friends, top singer songwriters in their own right, to exchange songs and stories, playing solo and together. In the circle tonight is Dan Britton, Andy Griffiths and Neil Rabjohn (from Smallbear). It should be a great session.

Playing music from the halcyon days of swing, Warwickshire’s Dr Teeth Big Band are a non-stop-jump-jive-rhythm and boogie orchestra, who mix rhythm & blues, jump-jive, boogie-woogie, old school funk and ska to create a new breed of swing. Their high octane sound is played with an energy and enthusiasm that gets everybody up on their feet. They are one of the few UK bands to take the blues back to Chicago and blow the locals away!

A word about our listings
A guide for Customers

These days artists and bands tend to book their tours months in advance. In order to give you the best notice of up and coming shows we list events once they have been confirmed by the band or their management. The downside of this is that dates can change due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes at very short notice.

We do our best to ensure that this site is kept as up to date as is possible, with updates happening at least once a week. Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you check these listing prior to setting out for your show especially if you are traveling any distance.

Not listed?
A guide for Artists and Promoters

The quickest way to get yourself included in our listings is to send an email to musician at once your gig is confirmed.

We also need you to do the following -

Put the name of the artist or band name along with the date of your show in the email subject line.

Attach a reasonable sized photograph. A 72dpi, jpeg, bigger than 200x200 pixels would be fine. Please don't email files over 1mb in size. If in doubt please drop us a line before sending.

Let us have your web address so we can link to your site or Myspace page.

Send us some text. Whilst we are happy to tidy up spelling or grammar, we don't have the time to write or edit copy for you. Ideally we need a nice concise 'blurb' of between 75-100 words. Please don't send a three page biography, or else we are likely to bounce it back to you. If you have a selection of press quotes send what you have as we can usually easily compile something from them.
