Aynsley Lister
Date: 11th November 2017
Details:  Fresh from his richly deserved accolade as “Guitarist of the Year” in the British Blues Awards and straight out of the studio, Aynsley returns to The Stables with a brand new album! The new album, Eyes Wide Open, combines the songwriting craft of Home with the power of delivery of Tower Sessions. Each song tells a story; really clever observations on life taken from the lives of ordinary people in today’s world, each one delivered in an absolute masterclass in the art of guitar.

Back with his band, Aynsley will be showcasing his new material along with his popular favourites and some classic covers as you’ve never heard them before. Expect an evening of finely crafted songs performed with a passion and conviction that will have you hooked from the very first chord.

These are three very important people in my life .And all three died within a ten month period of each other it was a great loss to us all. I look forward to playing some of the music I personally made with all of them over the years on my November tour.”

The Clone Roses & DJ Clint Boon
Date: 18th November 2017
Details:  The Stone Roses are without doubt one of the most important bands of British music and their music has influenced and inspired many artists. They recently performed 4 sell out nights at The Etihad Stadium in Manchester to over 240,000 people, and the concerts will no doubt go down in history for fans of the band.

But with the Roses’ appearances now less regular, there is only 1 option to hear those songs played with the same passion and energy as the real thing. The Clone Roses are the longest serving and most popular Roses Tribute playing live today. The attention to detail is second to none, with the band acquiring the same clothing, instruments and usually play the same set as The Roses themselves. The band have recently played Isle of Wight Festival, Shiine on Weekender, and “A Tribute to Manchester” headlining to over 2500 at Manchester Academy 1, and to 1700 people at Ulster Hall in Belfast, as well as a UK Tour of the o2 Academy music venues.

Expect to hear all the classics, “Waterfall”, “Made of Stone”, “I am the Resurrection” along with the new songs “All for One” and “Beautiful Thing.”

If you’ve never seen the real deal or want to re-live the best gig you’ve been to then “The Clones” will deliver the next best thing!

“I can’t believe it’s not butter, the second best Stone Roses in the World! MANI (THE STONE ROSES)

“Easily the Best Roses Tribute Band in the business” CLINT BOON (INSPIRAL CARPETS / RADIO X)

“The Clones have long been the best” THE GUARDIAN
