Who's Who
Date: 24th February 2018
Details:  Formed in West London in 1996, Who’s Who, the longest established Who Tribute Show in the UK, have received incredible reactions across Europe and beyond for their exciting live performances. Widely respected and acknowledged by members of The Who, as the group that most interprets the songs of Pete Townshend and the legendary live performances of The Who, with honesty and integrity. Giving nothing less than 100% during a performance, Who ’s Who ensure that a night to remember is guarantee. The band celebrated the 40th anniversary of "Live at Leeds" in 2010, touring extensively and performing the whole of "Tommy" to audiences in the UK and Europe, amid critical acclaim.

Raw Power, Passion and Soul, that's what defines the members that make up Who’s Who. Their longevity and chemistry together as a unit is unchallengeable - 13 years in a stable line-up, the longest ever for any Who type band; and from that comes an understanding of each other as players; much like The Who themselves. Any player will tell you that you cannot buy chemistry, and it serves as a testament to the reputation they have worked extremely hard to cement.

Who's Who plays to its strengths, which is its collective talent as players and performers. The music will always come first - there are no wigs or "stick on" sideburns here.

As history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to fans of The Who and the musical legacy it's left behind.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

The Floyd Effect
Date: 10th March 2018
Details:  The music of Pink Floyd as it was always meant to be heard

Having toured since 2007, The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the iconic music of Pink Floyd. All of the band’s members are top quality musicians with pedigrees that stretch across all manner of musical genres, and they faithfully recreate the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to backing tracks, racks of computers, or other technological wizardry. Every note that you hear is played and sung by the band, making each concert a genuine ‘live’ experience; powerful, immersive and emotional. And, of course, the music is supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen, two sets of projections, smoke and lasers.

Sit back and enjoy the Floyd Effect as the band presents a musical journey through the Pink Floyd canon including a complete performance of Dark Side Of The Moon – unbroken, as it was always meant to be heard.

Unless you were there the first time around, the music of Pink Floyd was never as real as this.

As a show this was as good as it gets. The timing, delivery and recreation of the Floyd sound was faultless, and many tracks took me to places I had forgotten existed as the sound washed over me.

Unbelievable! I heard The Floyd Effect for the first time last night. To say I was blown away would be an understatement. Terrific music, brilliantly performed reducing me to tears. I did not ever expect to hear this wonderful music performed live in this way. Thank you for a truly fabulous evening.

I had the good fortune to see the original Pink Floyd twice. The Floyd Effect are as good as the original line up and, with the intimacy of the venue, it’s like being in the front row. They were stupendous. I would urge any Floyd fan to make the effort to see them. You will be elated.

*Please Note – Not suitable for under 12s, under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony

John Bramwell (I Am Kloot)
Date: 16th March 2018
Details:  JOHN BRAMWELL ANNOUNCES NEW SOLO ALBUM AND LIVE TOUR

I Am Kloot’s songwriter and frontman, John Bramwell, has announced the release of his first studio solo album “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” and a live tour of a brand new show in November 2017.

The record is a stunning showcase of John’s skilful, widely acclaimed song-writing and his unique voice. It’s the first completely new collection of songs by John as a solo artist since he started his adventures away from I Am Kloot.

“Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” has been inspired by John’s travels around the UK and Europe performing more than 300, intimate solo gigs. Travelling in his VW Campervan with his dog Henry, the experience allowed John to explore parts of the country hitherto unknown, develop his solo sound and ideas, and meet an awful lot of interesting people…

The album is inspired by the spirit of liberty, independence, adventure and solitude that John has enjoyed on the road, as well as the diverse emotions that escape and travel can bring about – from sadness to exhilaration.

His live show is testament to that too. Audiences can expect a highly personal experience from a performer who has completely immersed himself in the experience of connecting with live audiences of all kinds. This adventure has taken John to little rooms above pubs (after promising a fan he would play in their town that ‘doesn’t have gigs’) to World War II underground bunkers in Germany.

It’s about rediscovering the romance, intimacy and magic of the live music experience, one to one with the audience. The new show will include songs from “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces”, a handful of songs from his follow up album, which he has already started to record, and ten I Am Kloot classics that he has rearranged with other instruments.

And of course there’ll be the usual off the wall chat and tall stories…

This is a chance to see one of the country’s most talented songwriters at the top of his game.

Leave Alone The Empty Spaces is released on 3rd November.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony.

Doors: 7:30pm

£15
