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 travelling any distance.

A guide for Artists and Promoters

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. There are plenty of examples of the sort of thing we need here on the site to help you out.

Bootleg Blondie
£13.00adv
Bootleg Blondie are Europe’s official Deborah Harry & Blondie tribute band and are the only Blondie tribute to play at the legendary CBGBs in New York City, the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.

Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie Bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t-shirts with more holes than actual t-shirt!

Emma Stevens
“Bringing a refreshing glimmer of hope and an abundance of heart and positivity,British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Emma Stevens first picked up a guitar at the age of two and has since learnt cello, piano, banjo, ukulele, mandolin and bass. Emma achieved four consecutive play-listed singles on BBC Radio 2, extensive international radio play in the UK, Europe and Australia, an iTunes single of the week with her song "Riptide", sold out headline shows and supported The Feeling, Take That, Wet Wet Wet, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Train, Albert Lee and Simply Red to name a few! Emma's catchy pop melodies and folky instrumentation has been used on many TV shows on BBC, ITV, Sky and Channel 4, and even featured on a TV show in China which was broadcast to 75 million people, receiving a whopping 500 million streams in China after! Since losing her Mum to cancer in 2012, Emma has dedicated her life to her music, writing messages of positivity, hope and love. Her music breathes life and honesty, and is re-establishing a lyrical connection with her audience, something seemingly so absent from an overcrowded marketplace.

DIIO
£10.00adv £12.00door
DIIO (pronounced D-2-O) are the ultimate tribute to the Master Of Metal, Ronnie James Dio. The idea for DIIO goes back a few years to a gig on Rhodes with Hi-On Maiden and Sack Sabbath and a long standing friendship between Matt Duggan (Ronnie) and Russ Saxton (Vivian), coupled with a mutual admiration of the immortal RJD.

One drunken evening in the summer of 2016, the plan was cemented and with the addition of Tony Clark (Jimmy) and Pete Mather (Vinnie) on bass and drums and the ultimate DIIO tribute was born. All four members are veterans of the tribute circuit and have played (and still play) in some of the most respected outfits in the UK.

As well as all the classics from RJD's solo career, DIIO also plays the very best cuts from his time in Rainbow and Black Sabbath. Expect to hear classics including Holy Diver, Don't Talk To Strangers, Heaven and Hell, Neon Knights, Stargazer, Kill The King and many, many more all delivered with a precision and attention to detail that is second to none.

Fleetingwood Mac
£11.00adv
We are Fleetingwood Mac, a young and exciting new tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.
We didn’t just want to be  another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!
As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?
A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses……
We work hard in rehearsals to get the details right and do justice to some classic songs that play
a huge part in many people’s lives.
We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as who we are, five young musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider  audience.
