Bulsara And His Queenies

Selected by Queen Productions Ltd to headline the official Freddie Mercury Birthday Party in Montreux, Switzerland, the performance by BULSARA AND HIS QUEENIES was such a success they’ve been invited back for 2019…

A remarkable young sexy and brilliant 7-piece band with their own identity; not what is quite expected of your typical ‘Queen Tribute Band’. 

No wigs, no yellow jackets, no attempt to look like Queen.

Instead, the band’s whole ethos is based upon performing the studio versions of the songs to an exceptional standard, rather than attempting to recreate Queen’s famous 1986 Magic Tour.  How refreshing…

Founded in the summer of 2016 in the North of England and offering a unique and sensational alternative to the current Queen tribute bands on the circuit; think ‘homage’ rather than ‘pastiche’ providing the most discerning Queen fan with a unique experience. 

As well as performing several of Queen’s more mainstream hits, the band place particular emphasis on the ‘Deep Cuts’ from the first half of Queen’s career. To date, Queen have sold over 300 million albums worldwide, proving that album tracks are extremely popular with hardcore fans.

Having recently performed the ‘Sheer Heart Attack’ album in its entirety, the band are now focussing their rehearsals on ‘The Miracle’ album ahead of its 30th Anniversary in 2019.

Reassured by the feedback they received from a huge and growing fanbase, it became clear that they had exposed a niche in the Queen tribute market, in that it’s possible to perform Queen’s music without looking like them – and be respected more for doing so.

“We haven’t made a conscious decision to be alternative; we’ve just evolved that way! The fact that we were still booked for the hottest party in showbiz by the management of the world’s biggest band is testament to our musical capabilities.” – Gareth Taylor, vocalist.

VINYL EDDIE LABEL LAUNCH w/ Violet Contours and The Receivers (co-headline), The Vedettes, Fear And Loathing

Formed in 2016 VIOLET CONTOURS have crafted a unique sound, taking influences from artists such as Kings of Leon and Paul Simon. An infectious high energy sound merges romantic lyrics with afro pop delivering a fresh new indie style. Now tipped by BBC Introducing top 5 bands to watch out for in 2019. A UK tour is currently being arranged supported by new releases and 12 inch Vinyl release on Label Vinyl Eddie.

THE RECEIVERS burst onto the Yorkshire scene in early 2017 by playing their first two gigs in one night. Starting as they mean to go on, they then took to the road for their first UK Tour with debut EP, Crescent Moon Heart. Taking cities such as Manchester, Sheffield & Newcastle by storm as well as an official EP launch gig, here at Fibbers!

In 2018, the band released a string of singles, “21”, “A Thousand Times” & “Alarm” whilst continuing to play around the UK, in March the boys played to crowds in Liverpool, Birmingham & London for the first time. In July 2018, The Receivers played to 1,500 people at Leeds O2 Academy just after they headlined a stage at Tramlines Fringe. And in early 2019, The Receivers put finishing touches to their new record and ventured out for a small tour in January 2019. On 4th February, indie music DJ and New Music Pioneer, Steve Lamacq premiered a brand new track, “Leave The Right Marks” on BBC Radio 6 Music.

York-based indie rockers THE VEDETTES are no normal indie band. Not content to merely imitate those that came before, the quintet’s debut single ‘Silver’ is a mission statement of a band who tread their own path while the bands second single, ‘Better Than You’ displays their creativity and dedication by delving into somewhat ‘experimental’ grooves and structures.
The Vedettes have already seen support from national radio, being listed as Laura Whitmore’s ‘Track of the Week’ during her Sunday Session on BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Introducing when releasing their debut single ‘Silver’. They received support again from BBC Introducing when releasing their latest single ‘Better Than You’ in early 2019.

FEAR AND LOATHING are a three-piece band from York playing jazz/blues vibe with murder ballad-esque
songs.”

Alabama 3 Acoustic w/ Black Cat Bone

An unrivalled Marxist machine gun, ALABAMA 3 ACOUSTIC are on a mission to get you mashed! Featuring ROCK FREEBASE – ACOUSTIC GUITAR // LARRY LOVE – VOCALS // REV B ATWELL – VOCALS // HARPO STRANGELOVE – HARMONICA // MS X- VOCALS…

Heeding Woodie Guthrie’s message, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology, and are brave enough to hit the road armed only with battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie’s infamous phrase… ‘This machine kills fascists’.

In homage to classic delta blues slide players Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base, everybody’s favourite Brixton warriors present their own narco-acoustic slant on “Sweet Mutherfucking Country Acid House” – and the music that has inspired them along the way.

Complete with Larry Love’s gravelly ash-stained vocals and Nick Reynolds’ bank robber melodies on harmonica, prepare yourself for a helluva raucous show, in no way resembling the usual byword for an acoustic gig… BOR-ING!

Fresh from their full band recording of ‘Blues’, fans are loving the acoustic arrangements along with that awesome back catalogue.

The Stone Foundation

When Paul Weller wants to produce and play on your album alongside the likes of other guests Mick Talbot, Steve White and The Average White Band’s Hamish Stuart (and Paul Weller has been known to join in live – WATCH IT HERE!) you kinda know you’ve got something going on…

Midlands-based THE STONE FOUNDATION have perfected that sweet soul vibe but with added harder and heavier funk honed by extensive touring, including headline shows at Shepherds Bush Empire and a storming set at Glastonbury.

Bassist Neil Sheasby says: “In recent years I’ve heard a lot of records with great grooves but there’s no song, the message and melodies were still key to the records creation. To me latest album ‘Everyone Anyone’ sounds like a very cohesive collection of tunes, a body of work that hangs well as a complete album. The next natural step for Stone Foundation”

Singer and guitarist Neil Jones adds “We wanted to make tunes that would unite people no matter what their background or beliefs may be and also for the first time in a while explore topics closer to home that effect us all, such as family, loss and finding comfort in some of the darker times we all face. It was important we made the sound harder and heavier and ultimately funkier and to me these 11 tracks sound like 8 musicians maturing and developing as players (with a little help from some good friends)”

The Christians, The Badrocks (acoustic)

Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits… Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Whats in a Word, Hooverville, Words, Father, The Bottle and many more THE CHRISTIANS enjoyed huge worldwide acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s, and often confused people with their band name (in fact just the brothers surname with absolutely no religious connotation!).

Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian (who very much deserves the Daily Mirror’s description, ‘One of the finest voices in pop’) who has only gained in vocal stature (and wit) over the years.

The band are enjoying a revival currently touring successfully in the UK and Europe, and with a brand new soulful ten-track album entitled ‘WE’ the band have reflected on life issues (loss, breakups and just the struggles of life).

Come and find out why Chris Evans said, ‘The best gig I’ve ever been to’.

Killing Eve (Skeletal Family/Ghost Dance/All About Eve/The Mission), Cold In Berlin, Grooving In Green, 1919

KILLING EVE is the brand new project from ANDY COUSIN (All About Eve/The Mission) and ANNE MARIE HURST (Skeletal Family/Ghost Dance).

Andy is currently busy as a radio presenter on The Andy Cousin Show and amongst many other projects he famously played bass for All About Eve and The Mission.

ANNE MARIE HURST was the lead singer in Skeletal Family and Ghost Dance who she co-founded with Gary Marx from Sisters Of Mercy; here Anne became a well-loved and respected vocalist and features in the top 10 most influential women in Goth.

The line-up is completed drummer ADRIAN ‘Ozzy’ OSADZENKO (ex-Skeletal Family and 50 Foot Woman who toured with Ricky Warwick). Killing Eve have just completed a 13,track album which will be released soon!

COLD IN BERLIN return with a fourth album recorded and set for release in Autumn 2019, and continue to explore the darkest corners of heavy guitar composition from their spiritual home of gothic doom punk. A year off to regroup and write has produced the bands strongest set of tracks to date, with their trademark epic darkness now summoning haunting keys and string sections.

Vocalist Maya, empowered by a recent collaboration with punk icon Lydia Lunch for Transmaniacon’s The Strange World of Suzie Pellet concept album, delivers a breathtaking range of shattering lyrics inspired by nothing less than the imminent collapse of the world as we know it.

Cold in Berlin have cast a spell of apocalyptic witchcraft to soundtrack the uninhabitable world.

GROOVING IN GREEN formed 2008, currently featuring Tron on vocals (Solemn Novena), Pete Finniemore on guitars (Children On Stun/Switchblade Switch), Simon Rippin on drums (Eden House/Adoration/NFD/Nefilim/Red Sun Revival).

The UK gothic rock/post-punk outfit took their name from a March Violets song and over the years have played worldwide, currently finishing off their 3rd album tentatively called ‘A Second Chance’. Very much like the other acts on this amazing triple bill they are goth rock royalty so don’t be late to game, this terrific line up is never likely to repeated!

The Invisible Orchestra

16 (yes, SIXTEEN) piece ensemble combining soul, Latin, deep funk, jazz and big band with huge orchestral sweeps, Afrobeat, Arabic punk, hip-hop and brass-heavy dance music to create a vibrant, energetic and exhilarating tour de force which defies categorisation. Phew…

THE INVISIBLE ORCHESTRA make Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra look like a skiffle band” – The Guardian

“Think of the most decadent Hollywood star you can, then imagine them getting married for the fourth (or is it fifth?) time to some dissolute countess in a sprawling Provençal château, then The Invisible Orchestra would be the wedding band invited along – a day early, with some casualties – to soundtrack that balmy Mediterranean evening of A-list debauchery, filling the pink skies with stridently lush arrangements. Polished enough not to fall apart, smudged enough to swing.” The Quietus. Double phew…

The band’s electrifying live shows have included collaborations with guest vocalists such as Harleighblu, Percydread (The Naturalites), legendary UK rapper Scorzayzee and Natalie duncan (to name a few), as well as the four-times world champion DJ Mr Switch, performing alongside a talented and diverse set of core musicians who’ve toured throughout the world.

With shows known to include up to 32 musicians at a time, The Invisible Orchestra is a unique and ever-evolving spectacle.

I mean, COME ON, this can’t be missed. And we’re going to need a bigger boat…

Cloudbusting – The Music Of Kate Bush (SHOW STARTS 7.45pm!)

“If you missed Kate, CLOUDBUSTING are the next best thing” – Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2 – this was such an amazing show last time…

It’s just over forty years since Wuthering Heights announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush. Since that remarkable debut Kate has produced far more hits than you might realise: Running Up That Hill, Hounds of Love, Wow, Babooshka, This Woman’s Work, all of which feature in Cloudbusting’s show.

‘Mandy started singing and I thought ‘Wow, that’s amazing!’ – Paddy McGuinness, BBCTV

Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC1 as one of the top tributes in the world due to the uncanny levels of authenticity achieved in their stage shows. Such is their reputation that the five piece band have been endorsed by many of Kate’s own collaborators from stage and studio and by thousands of Kate Bush fans up and down the UK.

‘I need to go to this!’ – Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2

Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows forty years ago.

‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ – Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine

Mandy Watson’s vocals are a homage, with no hint of pastiche. “There can only be one Kate Bush! These songs are full of so many wonderful characters; when you perform them, that’s who you become!”

‘The UK’s finest’ – HomeGround & KateBushNews

‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!’ – Preston Heyman, Kate’s drummer

Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for Kate’s music once again in 2019, their new show featuring all the hits you’d expect as well as many songs you wouldn’t! Accompanied by eye-popping visuals that highlight the drama of Kate’s music, a Cloudbusting concert is an event no Kate Bush fan will want to miss. In the words of Kate herself, ‘We’re Cloudbusting, daddy!’

Specialising in the classic Mk 2 line-up of Gillan, Glover, Blackmore, Lord and Paice, PURE PURPLE go to great lengths recreating that immense classic ‘70s sound using a Hammond organ with Leslie speakers just like Jon Lord, alongside Blackmore’s trademark Marshall amps and Fender guitar.

RAINBOW RISING formed in ’96, not only to recreate the unique Rainbow sound but to also capture the spectacular live show as well.

This is a group of musicians with an almost fanatical interest in Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, and it shows with amazing attention to detail, with the aim of recreating the live Rainbow experience in every aspect.

From stunning vocals, thunderous percussion and bass, to dazzling keyboards and of course the unmistakable Blackmore guitar work.

Creedence Clearwater Review

The UK’s premier tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of America’s greatest bands who, despite their relatively short career, left an enduring legacy of classic songs written and sung by lead guitarist, singer and songwriter John Fogerty.

Creedence’s biggest songs, Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising, Fortunate Son and Have You Ever Seen The Rain all get the treatment as well as their covers of classics like I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Midnight Special and Susie Q.

Capturing the feel, sound and atmosphere of the original songs, CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIEW pack all the hits and more into two hours plus of rootsy, swampy, bluesy and sometimes country flavoured rock and roll.

FROM THE CLASSIC CCR SOUND OF THE BAYOU COUNTRY, GREEN RIVER, WILLY & THE POOR BOYS AND COSMOS FACTORY, RIGHT THROUGH TO THE PRESENT DAY WITH JOHN FOGERTY’S HITS FROM CENTREFIELD, BLUE MOON SWAMP AND MANY MORE..

There’s audience involvement, singalongs and plenty of rousing choruses to join in on the Review’s authentic and power packed tribute the Creedence legacy. There’s also a nod to John Fogerty’s solo career in the show, with songs like Almost Saturday Night, Hot Rod Heart and of course Rockin’ All Over The World.

Dale Taylor takes up the role of John Fogerty on guitar and vocals, which is no easy task considering Fogerty’s power and range. However he fulfils the lead spot, delivering the same rawness and energy of the original performances, backed up with a solid and experienced band who stick as closely to the album tracks as possible.

Performing a range of CCR material consisting of all of their biggest, classic hits, album tracks and wonderful obscurities, Creedence Clearwater Review will take you on a nostalgia trip you won’t want to miss.

Walter Trout w/ special guest Dan Patlansky

WALTER TROUT‘s back story is a page-turner you won’t want to put down. Five decades in the making; it is equal parts thriller, romance, suspense and horror.

There are musical fireworks, critical acclaim and fists-aloft triumph, offset by wilderness years and brushes with the jaws of narcotic oblivion.

There are feted early stints as gunslinger in bands from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to Canned Heat, and the solo career that’s still blazing a quarter-century later. The veteran bluesman has seen and done it all – plays earth shattering blues rock music.

And what an awesome support act! In only a little over a decade, DAN PATLANSKY has become one of the busiest and most respected blues artists to ever come out of South Africa.

After his debut album which garnered Dan a reputation as a blues-phenomenon, and his subsequent “Readers Choice” vote as “Best Blues Guitarist in Southern Africa”, Dan’s second album was released by EMI on the famed Blue Note label.

Dan is one of the only South Africans to ever achieve “Blue Note” status and one of only six Fender endorsed guitarists in South Africa. Dan Patlansky, #1 Blues Rock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review.

Proud Mary

“I remember early spring, I remember everything…

“A lesson in songwriting’ – Noel Gallagher; “A classic rock ‘n’ roll band” – Caleb Followill, Kings of Leon.

It’s early Spring 2001 and PROUD MARY burst on the scene with debut singles Very Best Friend and All Good Things, the first of a raft of infectious material from opening album The Same Old Blues produced by Noel Gallagher in just ten days and released on his own Sour Mash label. Support slots with Oasis, Neil Young, The Stereophonics, Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene quickly followed.

“If you like swaggering scarf-waver tunes with vast choruses and singers who sound like they swallow red-hot pokers, you’ve found your Holy Grail” – The Guardian

“Imagine a bastard son of Bob Dylan fronting the Verve (but with a better slide guitarist) and surely you’re already in the shop” (Evening Standard)

Singer Greg Griffin’s vocals left you with hairs standing on the back of your neck and Paul Newsome’s song writing was so touching and personal that you almost felt part of the songs themselves.

Second album Love and Light included the indie chart hit Mexico and features contributions from Andy Rourke (The Smiths) and Gordon Raphael (The Strokes).

Since they first started out a lot has changed in the world of Proud Mary, what has stayed strong is the powerful nucleus of Paul and Greg. 

More recently Paul has toured Europe as main support for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds as well as appearing in the same bands 2 videos and Greg set up a USA based band project Midnight Clergy, releasing 2017 a 2017 debut album ‘ONE’ in  collaboration with Marc Ford of The Black Crowes

Motörheadache

Top class authentic tribute MOTORHEADACHE to the late, great Lemmy Kilmister and 40 yrs of Motorhead featuring lifelong Motörhead fan Rob Campbell on Rickenbacker bass and vocals, capturing the essence of Lemmy in voice, stage clothes and that grinding mid-range bass sound.

Rob plays a custom built Rickenbastard made By Lemmy’s own luthier, and fitted with the pickups and tuners removed from Lemmy’s own Rickenbastard when it was serviced. Rob also has a custom Lemmy ‘Murder One’ Marshall Super Bass wired to the same specification as Lemmy’s and two Marshall 4×15 cabs with 4×12 cabs either side of the stage.

Motörheadache tour the UK and Europe extensively – this is not a pub band! – including prestige festival and biker rally dates.

After showcase O2 Academy shows as part of the band’s “The Curse Still Rings True” tour, Motörheadache headlined the Lemmy Dutch Memorial concert in Amsterdam.

Expect lots of Fast Eddie Clarke-era tunes, regarded by many Motörheadbangers as the classic era from 1975 to 1982, including Ace of Spades / Bomber / Overkill / Iron Fist / The Hammer / Damage Case and the thunderous Motörhead – the last song Lemmy wrote for Hawkwind and the one that gave his new band its name.

Expect, also, material from ’83 to 2015; also Brian Robertson’s short stint and the ’84 re-launch as a four piece with Wurzel and Phil Campbell on guitars and finally, the longstanding Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee era from 1995 to 2015 – Killed by Death / In the Name of Tragedy / Sacrifice / Ramones / Burner and Victory or Die from the last studio outing, Bad Magic.

Live/Wire – the AC/DC show (starts 7.45pm)

LIVE/WIRE is The AC/DC Show – a hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing.

THIS SHOW IS ALWAYS RAMMED – EARLY PURCHASE ADVISABLE!!

Both Bon (Dave) and Brian (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and with the rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and playing.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in… and there’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados!

All the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway To Hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo.

If by this time you are still standing… we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE!!
