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.

Band Of Friends
£15.00adv £17.00door
Not just the notes – but the sound, energy and feel of Rory Gallagher, delivered by people who helped define it…

When the Irish guitarist-vocalist passed away in 1995 he left behind an eleven-album catalogue of inspired albums, and the memory of unforgettably energetic concerts. Bassist Gerry McAvoy [Nine Below Zero, Champion Jack Dupree, Deep Joy] appeared on every one of those albums. Also featuring Brendan O'Neill on drums and Davy Knowles on guitar and vocals.

The Della Grants
£10.00adv £12.00door
The DG’s are, above anything else, a group of close friends. Max Manning and Tom Best front the band on stage; sharing out the vocal, guitar, and harmonica duties. The band’s rhythm section (now in its twenty-first year) consists of Andy Boulton on bass & Tom Walker on drums. When it comes to song writing and arrangement (something the band prides itself on) all members are included throughout the process – although having said that, more often than not it’s Manning who proves to be the catalyst.
As of 2017 the band have been frequently joined on stage by highly accomplished musician & good friend Tony Robinson; who provides organ, piano, & trumpet. Over the years Tony has worked with a number of popular artists including: The Beautiful South, The Specials, & Manic Street Preachers.
The DG’s latest album ‘On The Other Side’ (2021) cleverly bridges the gaps between blues, rock, & Americana, and features some of the band’s greatest material to date.
The DG’s retro rock-n-roll approach towards live gigs always proves memorable.

Gong
£18.00adv
Doors 8:00pm - 11:30pm
The ever-metamorphosing entity that is GONG launches, as ever, into unknown – and unknowing – territory with a new tour for 2022 destined to be talked about,discussed, and argued over, up and down the land.

From its beginnings in a French commune in 1967, through the Virgin Records years, mismanagement, court cases, break-ups and re-joining’s, deaths and rebirths – there has
always been a continuous thread of beautiful, dangerous and extraordinary music.

The current holders of the flame have come together over the last eight years; sinuous bass
player Dave Sturt joined just as the album 2032 was shown to the world; Ian East (Sax, Flute)
was the next to blow in through the portal; Fabio Golfetti brought his guitars from Brazil
(after working with Daevid Allen for many years); Kavus Torabi (lead vox and guitars)
appeared to Daevid in a vision; Cheb Nettles (drums) just sort of turned up.

In 2015, Daevid Allen passed away. His influence and legacy were honoured on the band’s
subsequent album, Rejoice! I’m Dead! (2016). Over the past year GONG has performed with Steve Hillage Band (himself a former member of the 1970s GONG line-up) and released the
critically acclaimed album The Universe Also Collapses (2019).
Gong’s musically diverse world includes shades of psychedelia, space rock, jazz, avant-garde,
krautrock and surreal soundscapes.

We promised the transformation of utilitarian rooms across the country into
shimmering psychedelic temples, bursting with radiance one and all, only to find ourselves
all blindsided by an unprecedented metamorphosis.

Gong has no time for the old normal, so as we look towards 2022, let us unleash THE NEW
ABNORMAL!
There's a revolution coming and, by the gods, it's going to need a soundtrack. Let us
congregate, sing praises to the moon and love, love, love.”

Wille & the banditts
£15.00adv £18.00door
plus Troy Redfern
Doors 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Essentially Wille and the Bandits is a classic blues rock band much in the vein of Cream or The Jimi Hendrix experience. But in a similar way to how these bands pushed the genre in their time, Wille and the Bandits try to take their sound beyond what is expected of such a traditional line up.

The use of more bizarre instrumentation and eclectic influences in the song writing often pushes them more into a world music or progressive category. Having toured with artists such as Deep Purple through to the John Butler trio and played major festivals across Europe, the band seem to leave an equally astounding impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds with their energetic and soulful performances.

They have received great critical acclaim, being voted in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and reaching number 2 in the UK blues chart with their first single on downloads alone. Now touring their third independently released studio album Wille and the Bandits fan base, repertoire of sounds, styles and innovation seems to be growing at an exponential rate.

The band are praised in the press for their albums; bursting at the seams with textures, originality and soul. Rock legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis Rossi have also praised the band’s musicianship and their unique edge to Rock and Blues.

It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting rather than settling for a tried and tested formula. Ten seconds of Youtube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band that is very much about discovery and one best experienced LIVE!.

Man Machine - Kraftwerk Tribute
£10.00adv £12.00door
The UK and Europe’s Ultimate Kraftwerk tribute band. Animating the audience with live music and a laser performance of Kraftwerks' electronic dance tunes, this stunning tribute band is dedicated to the German pioneers of synthesizer music who influenced the British scene of the 70’s and 80’s which along with German techno was coming full circle to dance music in the 90’s.

What Kraftwerk have said and produced over three decades of music-making has inspired many of the key players in today’s popular music. This tribute act is a Van-w concept of stage media art and includes popular Kraftwerk tracks such as The Model, Pocket Calculation, The Robots, Autobahn, Tour de France and Trans Europe Express, all demonstrating that songs about very simple subjects can leave an immensely powerful and striking impression.

Warner E. Hodges Band
£15.00adv
plus The Midnight Dogs
Doors 8:00pm
From his early days guitar slinging in Jason & the Scorchers to more than a decade with Dan Baird & Homemade Sin and a parallel solo career that has produced four ace albums so far with a new one due in April, Warner E. Hodges is a man who knows how to rock and his live shows are famous for their excitement, intensity and power. He was a wild child who fused rock ’n’ roll aggression with country roots and getting on for forty years later he still is and he’s doing it as well as ever. As he says himself, Americana on a stool it ain’t, but some of the best rock ’n’ roll you’ll see it surely is. With Ben Marsden (guitar), Jason Knight (bass) and John Powney (drums), Warner has a band capable of running Black Sabbath into Merle Haggard and back out into AC/DC.
