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 musicianlive2 at gmail.com 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.

Coming to The Musician in May 2021

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.

Twisted System
This gig has been moved to 25/6/22
£10.00adv £12.00door
Twisted System are a top class and authentic tribute to the career of the mighty Twisted Sister. Set up by lifelong Twisted Sister fans who want to bring back the raw, high energy live performances that the band were renowned for and entertain the rowdy headbangers and SMF's of the UK once more. All members of the band are seasoned musicians with over 80 years experience of playing live with cover, tribute and original bands.

The set list comprises primarily tracks from the first 3 albums Under The Blade (1982), You Can't Stop Rock n Roll (1983) and Stay Hungry (1984).
You will enjoy hit songs such as I Am I'm Me, The Kids Are Back and We're Not Gonna Take It as well as such gems as Under The Blade, Bad Boys of Rock and Roll, You Cant Stop Rock n Roll, Stay Hungry, Shoot 'em Down, Burn In Hell, SMF and many, many more.

Warner E. Hodges Band
This gig has been moved to 25/03/22
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.

Hannah White
£10.00adv £12.00door
feat: Hannah White and Robbie Cavanagh
Doors 8:00pm - 11:00pm
British singer-songwriter Hannah White draws from a rich well of life experiences, Hannah maintains a wholly independent feel to hermusic, influenced by country, blues, folk and soul, producing a fresh sound coupled with a social conscience that remains distinctly her own with a voice switching from a sweet Nashville ballad to a heartfelt and reflective song full of blues.

Wowing audiences at shows as with multi-Grammy Award winning Tim O’Brien, Thea Gilmore and Judie Tzuke, gaining plaudits from music press, national and regional radio, Hannah is on the rise.

‘Hannah White and The Nordic Connections’ has been nominated by the Americana Music Association UK for ‘UK Album of the Year’ 2021.

A self-confessed devotee of real music Robbie Cavanagh is not defined by genres.

The only rules are good musicians, real instruments, great microphones and performance with emotion. Capturing sound, not producing it. Robbie performs self-penned, unscrubbed tales of heartbreak, loss, love and discovery, and when he puts pen to paper, he lives by his own words. The more you wrestle with an idea, the more contrived it becomes. Robbie writes with honesty, emotion, and most importantly; instinct.

In November 2020, it was announced that Robbie would be the recipient of Bob Harris ‘Emerging Artist Award’ at the Americana Music Association UK Awards 2021.

£10.00adv £12.00door
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.

Liverpool rock n roll duo Little Triggers with local fuzzy blues trio Chambers.

Little Triggers:
Little Triggers are a formidable live force and the line-up now features Tom Hamilton on guitar and lead vocals with Jay Radcliffe on drums and backing vocals. Tom plays his guitar through three amps via multiple signals. Rock media have been quick to spot Little Triggers’ huge potential, with Classic Rock Magazine featuring them as both a coveted High Hopes new band and awarding them two Tracks Of The Week, and Planet Rock, Total Rock and BBC Introducing Radio spinning their singles in 2019.

Like all the greatest bands, they need to be experienced live if one is to fully comprehend their true prowess. Recent appearances both home and abroad are a testament to the bands'
fiery live performances.
