The Blues Band
Thursday 26th October 2017, 7:30pm
All Tickets £22.50*


The individual members of The Blues Band were already held in admiration by generations of rhythm & blues fans when they formed back in 1979. Almost two and a half decades and over 16 albums later they continue to add to their growing army of followers, and it’s not unheard of to find three generations from the same family at a gig.

The band is today acknowledged throughout Europe and beyond as being amongst the very finest purveyors of rhythm & blues. They have inspired numerous other blues bands, many of which have come and gone …The Blues Band have remained a constant, increasingly popular fixture, however, and all with only a modicum of help from the record business – as Gary’s oft quoted comment states "the music industry doesn’t bother us and we don’t bother them."

This independent streak goes right back to their early days when in an unusual move the band "bootlegged" their own first album – certain copies of which are now collector’s items. The ‘bootlegging’ came about because, having recorded their first album, the so called ‘major label’ which was to release it changed their minds and the band didn’t have the cash to pay the studio bill. So they got 1000 copies pressed up, mastered from a copy tape that they had, signed the plain white numbered sleeves and sold them at gigs & via mail order. Only then did another ‘major label’ pick up the album and release it widely.

It’s a credit to both the band’s talent and to their many thousands of fans’ loyalty and support that they have since sustained such a long career, and brings into question the oft-spoken phrase by parents despairing of their aspiring musical offspring, "When are you going to get yourself a proper job?"

Such successful musical mavericks are fairly rare and are borne more from word-of-mouth than promotional hype. Either way they still have to cut the mustard. These boys have real feel – for their music, for their audience and for each other. Playing with maturity and passion is second nature to all of them. Paul Jones has devoted much of a creative career spanning almost 40 years to this eternal, inspiring form - the very base and roots of rock & roll... Dave Kelly, with his late, great sister, Jo-Ann, introduced a whole generation to the works of Memphis Minnie, Son House, Robert Johnson and Mississippi Fred McDowell… the blues bit Tom McGuinness in the late '50s and has never let go - the same sharp, tight grip which still holds Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher within its spell. So here they are, as enthusiastic as ever - Britain's finest, most skilled practitioners in the art of the blues. The Blues Band.

Rick Wakeman - Piano Portraits
Friday 3rd November 2017, 7:30pm
All tickets £26.50*


Currently celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician, keyboard player, songwriter and broadcaster, Rick Wakeman recently made chart history when his Piano Portraits album became the first solo piano album to enter the UK’s Top 10.

Initially inspired by the unprecedented reaction to his performance of David Bowie’s Life On Mars on BBC Radio 2 in early 2016, Piano Portraits features instrumental versions of hits Rick originally performed on (Space Oddity, Morning Has Broken & Wondrous Stories) as well of others specifically chosen for their wonderful melodies, including Stairway To Heaven, Help and Eleanor Rigby.

He has also added a selection of some of his favourite classical pieces (Berceuse, Clair de Lune and Swan Lake).

The show will include at least eight of the pieces on the album, plus other musical surprises, and all will be interspersed with hilarious anecdotes from this well-known and accomplished raconteur.

Rick’s one man shows are extremely popular and consistently sell out – a trend that looks likely to continue with the success of Piano Portraits.

The Wanna Dance Tour

Following on from a 2016 that saw him beat both Beyoncé and Drake to a Number 1 Album in his native Ireland, Country-Pop crossover star Nathan Carter has announced a huge run of UK tour dates for 2017.

As one of Ireland’s biggest live music acts, Nathan is developing into a household name, with tracks from “Stayin’ Up All Night” becoming hits, such as “Wagon Wheel” and “I Wanna Dance”. Enthralling audiences up and down the country, Nathan has firmly become a firm favourite for audiences of all ages.

Growing up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air, Nathan was exposed to classic songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton. From the tender age of 4 years old, not only learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan quickly became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys choir where he toured the world and even performed in front of the Pope in Rome.

Kyla Brox
Sunday 19th November 2017, 7:30pm
All Tickets £15.00*


Blues and soul become inextricably entwined in the music of Kyla Brox, whose raw talent and purity of expression make her stand apart in an age of the plastic diva and conveyor-belt poppet. Kyla Brox can be tender, urgent and gritty: she blurs the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. The daughter of legendary blues singer Victor Brox, Kyla started singing on-stage at the age of 12 and has several albums to her name, including the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the stripped and sensitive Grey Sky Blue (2009).

The different setting, from band to duo/trio, encourages two distinct Kylas to come to the fore - the salty blues mama in line from Bessie Smith, and the tender soul singer who sets out her hopes and fears in song. She never flinches from emotional reality in either situation. The much anticipated new release, Throw Away Your Blues incontrovertibly proves that Kyla Brox is the greatest British female blues singer of her generation.

"An authentic soul diva… sensitive, sexy, and with infinite reserves of sassiness" - City Life
"A classic sound pulled off with finesse… classy, impressive…" - Oldham Chronicle
"Great voice, great presence, great songs, great band…" - Leicester Mercury.

John Etheridge, John Marshall, Roy Babbington, Theo Travis
SOFT MACHINE

Three quarters of the celebrated 70’s version of the legendary group, which recorded the acclaimed Softs album in ’75, are completed by outstanding sax star Theo Travis.

The band plays material from the era (compositions by Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge, Karl Jenkins) as well as many contemporary works, as featured on their recent album Burden of Proof.

"Burden of Proof is, to put it mildly, absolutely exquisite. These are four musicians who are masters of their craft, and truly at the top of their game, not only as soloists but as contributors in an actual band. They've put together here a collection of songs that basically has something for everyone; challenging jazz-fusion, adventurous prog-rock, bits of chaotic free-jazz, atmospheric instrumental popjazz, and even a little hard rock. Extraordinary!"
