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

The quickest way to get yourself included in our listings is to send an email to rideout at stayfree.co.uk 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. There are plenty of examples of the sort of thing we need here on the site to help you out.

Please note - If you have played at The Musician before and we have text on file, we will continue to use use it for any subsequent listings unless you supply new copy.

If you spot any errors please send an email to derek at indiecentral.co.uk.

Blackwater Conspiracy
This gig has been moved to 21/9/21
£10.00adv £12.00door
Formed in the summer of 2015 in Northern Ireland, Blackwater Conspiracy are a hard rocking five piece who take their inspiration from the classics. Think Exile-era Stones, think Faces, think Black Crowes, think Quireboys, think a rock’n’roll band par excellence, equally at home with slide-driven rock as late night dark corner whiskey blues. Their debut at Ramblin’ Man Fair was voted one of the ten best ever live sets at that illustrious festival while their second album, ‘Two Tails & The Dirty Truth Of Love & Revolution’, was released in 2020 to rave reviews (10/10 Powerplay Magazine, 4/5 Get Ready To Rock, 5/5 Two Finger Media).

Blackwater Conspiracy “stand out because they’re supremely good at what they do” (Planet Rock) and are “ready to take their place in the elite” (Maximum Volume Music). This is a band that knows and uses their roots and influences but at the same time brings things right up to date for the twenty-first century. A great evening of rock‘n’roll, not to be missed.

Limited to 30 tickets per show (Two Shows)
4pm to 6.30pm
7pm to 9.30pm

In 2014 I was fortunate enough to be chosen by Sir Tom Jones as my mentor on 'The Voice UK'. On entering the competition my ambition had been to sing a duet with the superstar legend. Sir Tom took me on a fantastical journey through the stages of that competition and I reached the final and realised my dream.

I paid homage to this Knight of the Realm, on his special Birthday, by releasing a video on my YouTube channel of my own version of 'It's Not Unusual' - his 1965 breakthrough hit.

My version of ITS NOT UNUSUAL is now available as a download on iTunes and all download formats. To celebrate this I will be performing solo at my favourite hometown gig palace, the Musician, Leicester. Obviously, I will sing my version of ITS NOT UNUSUAL and also requests for songs from my career.
