The Black Sheikhs
Date: 5th April 2019
Details:  Speak Easy, Play Hard.

Vintage reprobates and genre alchemists, the Black Sheikhs fire heady concoctions of punk, pop, rock and swing, steaming into the 21st century.

Lord Acton and his band of virtuosos take the popular songs of today, and dress them up in the snazzy rags of the jazz era. Mötorhead, Beyoncé, Swift and Sheeran, injected with a hefty dose of swing and savoir faire.

From Glastonbury to the Palace of Westminster, they’ve set the stage on fire with boundless energy and brazen bon humour. From pub gigs to arenas, weddings to wakes, the Sheikhs have done it in style.

Line-up;

Lord Brian Acton: Guitar, Vocals

Emily Burkhardt: Clarinet

Jamie Stockbridge: Tenor Saxophone

Bruce Reid: Double Bass

Mitch Oldham: Drums and Percussion.

Gimme Abba - 20th Anniversary Tour
Date: 26th April 2019
Details:  NOT JUST ANOTHER ABBA TRIBUTE

“ABBA have left a fine musical legacy, and it’s in good hands.”

Gimme ABBA have been performing this fabulous tribute for over 19 years, and in 2019 they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary!

After 20 years of performances, Gimme Abba are now established as one of the best loved UK tributes to Abba! This unique stage show has developed over the years into more than just another ABBA tribute show, reproducing the charismatic stage presence of the flamboyant and glam front four.

This complete and superb ABBA show comes with a repertoire that draws from the greatest hits of Sweden’s most famous export. Totalling over two-hours, this performance is jam-packed with all the popular Abba songs and includes fascinating theatrical elements, many costume changes, choreographed dance routines and four-part vocal harmonies that come together to re-create that original ABBA party feel.

“The humour, energy and enjoyment generated on stage delights audiences” and provides a light hearted side to our ever evolving show, without compromising the integrity of the performance. This spectacular show will bring back memories of that golden ABBA era. This is not just another Abba tribute but a ‘truly complete and exciting Abba experience’ so what are you waiting for? Dust off those platforms! Put on those Flares! and come on our nostalgic trip back to the 70s. ‘Coming to a theatre near you’ this is a show not to be missed.

Abba’s music has stood the test of time and is a testament to the exceptional song writing of Benny and Björn, “being able to perform them for you is both a privilege and an honour, and one that we do not take lightly!” – Lawrence, Benny.
Since forming 20 years ago, Gimme ABBA have enjoyed theatre shows, concerts and festivals worldwide with performances in France, Holland, Germany, Cyprus, Malta, Spain, Brazil, Portugal and nationwide in the United Kingdom.

MICK MILLER ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Comedy has evolved over the years and so has Mick Miller. He got his big break on ITV’s “New Faces” which was the premier talent show of its day. He became a household name when he was a regular on ITV’s “The Comedians” and has continued to work solidly ever since.

Nowadays, he is equally at home entertaining on board cruise ships, performing at Corporate Functions, Theatres, Cabaret Clubs and the new style Comedy Clubs. He also co-stars with Johnny Vegas in the cult BBC comedy show, “Ideal”.

BILLY PEARCE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A National treasure, and without doubt one of Britain's most talented and best loved comedians, multi award winner Billy Pearce, has won just about every comedy award going, including a British comedy award, Solo comedian of the year, and Best television comedy newcomer at the London Palladium. There are few stages upon which Billy has not appeared, and he's broken Box Office records at a number of National Theatres.

'In a live situation there is quite simply no one like him' (The Stage)

'Billy Pearce absolutely nails his stand-up routine, packed full of punchlines'

The Courtbetweeners
Date: 27th April 2019
Details:  After seeing the Courteeners smash T in the Park, Reading and the 2016 support slot to the Stone Roses the lads couldn’t believe that there wasn’t a tribute to this amazing band, they decided to do something about it.

Featuring songs from St Jude, Falcon and Anna enjoy the massive anthems of Courteeners with tracks such as The Opener and Are You In Love With A Notion, re-live the first album with Bide Your Time and Fallowfield Hillbilly and go crazy to crowd favourites like Not Nineteen Forever and What Took You So Long.

The only tribute to Courteeners in the UK and probably the world.

The Smiths Ltd
Date: 3rd May 2019
Details:  The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

Highlights include playing in front of a 2500 capacity crowd at The Manchester Academy to over 4000 on the main stage at Bestival and Camp Bestival.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.

“The Smiths Ltd are a class act. They are indistinguishable from The Smiths.” – North West End

“The Smiths Ltd are probably the best tribute act going in the UK today.” – Quays News
