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.

Creedence Clearwater Review
£12.00adv £14.00door
Creedence Clearwater Review are the UK’s premier tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of America’s greatest bands who, despite their relatively short career, left an enduring legacy of classic songs written and sung by lead guitarist, singer and songwriter John Fogerty. Capturing the feel, sound and atmosphere of the original songs, Creedence Clearwater Review pack all the hits and more into two hours plus of rootsy, swampy, bluesy and sometimes country flavoured rock and roll. Creedences’ biggest songs, Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising, Fortunate Son and Who’ll Stop The Rain all get the treatment as well as their covers of classics like I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Midnight Special and Susie Q.
There’s audience involvement, singalongs and plenty of rousing choruses to join in on the Review’s authentic and power packed tribute to the Creedence legacy. There’s also a nod to John Fogerty’s solo career in the show, with songs like Almost Saturday Night, Hot Rod Heart and of course Rockin’ All Over The World. Dale Taylor takes up the role of John Fogerty on guitar and vocals, which is no easy task considering Fogerty’s power and range. However he fulfils the lead spot, delivering the same rawness and energy of the original performances, backed up by a solid and experienced band who stick as closely to the album tracks as possible.
Performing a range of CCR material consisting of all their biggest, classic hits, album tracks and wonderful obscurities, Creedence Clearwater Review will take you on a nostalgia trip you won’t want to miss. Creedence Clearwater Review, the definitive UK tribute.

MAN
£13.50adv £15.00door
Man first started off at the end of the sixties, called it a day towards the end of the seventies, then in the early eighties realised they could do nothing better than get together again. They have been through more lineups than you can shake a stick at, with various members coming and going at a rate which gives Pete Frame nightmares. (Pete loved Deke's books, by the way). Micky, Martin and Deke have pretty much been the core of the Manband, though a while back Terry Williams had another spell after John (Pugwash) Weathers had kept the drum stool warm for a few years; and Phil Ryan returned for a brief period after a 20 year hiatus.

One Step Behind
£11.00adv
One Step Behind is the UK's Premier and longest surviving MADNESS tribute band. Formed in spring 1993, the band achieved widespread recognition in an unusually short time, playing venues the length and breadth of Britain including the Marquee Club in London & the Venue in New Cross. Jaunts into Europe and beyond are also common place. Members of Madness have joined the One Step boys on stage on a number of occasions. Sax player Lee Thompson has played a few times commenting the band were “Tight as a ducks arse” and “Brilliant”. Lee is also quoted as saying that OSB were “single handily keeping the good ship Madness afloat”. Drummer Dan “Woody” Woodgate joined the band on stage for “One Step Beyond” and told the boys he thought they were amazing.

Faux Fighters UK
£10.00adv £12.00door
After spending years of playing drums for numerous bands and recording sessions, Ben Rudge decided to take the leap of faith and doing exactly what Dave Grohl did, switching the kit for guitar and taking centre stage. A few months of recording 4 or 5 foo fighters songs on his own and he finally decided to try and put together the best Foo Fighters tribute he could. Calling on long term friends Liam Slattery & Russ Millard the journey began, quickly adding drummer Kris Perrin & 3rd guitarist Paul Beddow the line up rehearsed for a few months before deciding to add the final layer of Ben Selleck on keys who finally completed the full live FOO FIGHTERS UK LINE UP.
Due to capacity restrictions this show will be performed as an acoustic trio rather than full band line up.

Sam Carter
£10.00adv £12.00door
plus Paul Handyside
Doors 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Sam has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention grabbing appearance on Later... with Jools Holland and a dreams-really-do-come-true performance in a specially assembled band to back Richard Thompson at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
Described as "the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation" by Jon Boden (Remnant Kings, ex-Bellowhead), Sam has toured the world, equally happy to perform intimate solo shows on acoustic guitar, on electric with a full band, or to collaborate with other artists. Recent collaborations have included Sweet Liberties, an EFDSS and Folk By The Oak joint-funded project which saw Sam, Nancy Kerr, Maz O’Connor and Martyn Joseph delving into the archives of Parliament in search of inspiration for songs about the pursuit and development of democracy. Sweet Liberties toured major UK venues, spawned an album of the same name and featured on BBC Radio 3’s World On 3 in late 2016.
Sam’s third solo album How The City Sings was released in April 2016 and captured this fervently admired singer, songwriter and guitarist at his most passionate and moving, with The Guardian calling it a "bittersweet electric-folk concept album" in their glowing 4-star review .

Blackwater Conspiracy
£10.00adv £12.00door
plus These Wicked Rivers
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.
