George Harrison's 75th Birthday Party!
 + The Trembling Wilburys
 + Grace Solero
THE TREMBLING WILBURYS – CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE TRAVELING WILBURYS 1988 – 2018  The Trembling Wilburys pay perfect homage to the Traveling Wilburys, the amazing supergroup formed in 1988 by George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and the late great Tom Petty with hits including “Handle With Care”, “End Of The Line” & “She’s My Baby” as well as their incredible solo catalogues, plus Beatles & ELO songs.  Formed 30 years ago in 1988, the original Wilburys never played live as Roy Orbison passed away shortly after the release of their debut album “Volume 1”, but luckily the Tremblers bring you their version of the “show that never was” with an incredibly uplifting two hours of fantastic music. In addition the band features two of the closest look-&-sound-alikes of any tribute act, with GLEN KNOWLER being the living double of George Harrison, while DAVE COLLISON perfectly captures Roy Orbison’s unique vocal range and look. Absolutely NO WIGS in this band, folks! The band has a great following and has played many great gigs & functions in the UK & Europe over the past few years, including festivals, theatres, Beatles conventions, holiday resorts, sports clubs and many rock venues. The line-up also features incredible lead guitarist DZAL MARTIN also renowned for his work with Terry Reid, The Equals, No Dice, Box of Frogs & many others, while drummer & manager DAVE STARK is also a well-known music industry insider who has some great stories of meeting George Harrison & all the Beatles along with Roy Orbison & Jeff Lynne. In addition the band was also officially endorsed & supported by Dave’s good friend the late Barbara Orbison, widow of Roy. Grace Solero– Tonight in acoustic mode, Grace normally fronts the eponymous  band who specialize in high end grunge/hard rock with a melodic Beatles cum folk sensibility. A rare chance to hear the gentler side of Grace’s oeuvre tonite.

Nuffin's Vintage Punk Rock Party
 + The Bermondsey Joyriders
 + Nuffin + Screaming Dead
 + Rage DC
The Bermondsey Joyriders- Gary Lammin’s (Cock Sparrer/Little Roosters) punky garage rhythmn n blues trio are an ace nite out…“Anyone looking for a crash course in punk spirit should look no further” – Classic Rock “Loud, fast, cheekily confrontational and distinctly British. See ‘em at all costs” – Hugh Gulland, Vive Le Rock “A unique spin on punk blues” – Charles Shaar Murray “Extraordinary slide guitar … witty and original vocals” – Carol Clerk, Classic Rock. Blending a love of bottleneck Delta blues with a solid background in the London punk scene, but with their fingers on the pulse of contemporary society, The Bermondsey Joyriders are a band as accomplished as they are inventive. They have captured the imagination of crowds and critics alike with their blend of ’77 punk power, skillful playing, soulful slide blues, and razor-sharp social commentary, delivered with a distinctly British wit. Each a consummate player in their own right, frontman Gary Lammin is augmented magnificently by bassist Martin Stacey (Chelsea), and drummer Chris Musto (Johnny Thunders, Joe Strummer, Glen Matlock and The Philistines) Nuffin- The Boys that do Nuffin had a rush of blood to their collective police helmeted noggin and got back together 40 years after first calling it  a day… and what a joy that they have. Having revived all their old songs they’ve now committed them to fully fledged album status (buy one tonight!) and it’s a wonderful thing. For fans of Spizz, Swell Maps, The Notsensibles and Splodge, but their comedic punk pop is all their own, great songs. Screaming Dead– Spirited, dark, and very rocknroll with it, a punk band based in Cheltenham, England during the 1980s back with us again. Leading lights in the “horror punk” movement, got some class originals and some fab reconditioned covers up their sleeves, such as their rather brilliant goff punk take on ‘Paint It Black’ Rage DC- Powerfully played pop tinged punk rock with Pistols punchiness, a little shout along melody a la Sham and some grand post J Thunders guitar slinging, in fact a very good example of the genre.
