Wake Up Promotions presents

Roxy Magic (Roxy Music Tribute)
£9adv £10door
Roxy Magic are the UK's best and longest-running tribute to Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry. We recreate, entirely live, material which spans four decades; from futurist/nostalgic art rock, through classic standards to sophisticated adult-oriented rock. Our aim is to give the audience a fabulously entertaining evening. Very high quality musicianship and a wonderful Bryan Ferry look and sound-alike, in the person of singer Kevin Hackett, combine to do just that.

Xander Promotions presents

Hypermused (Muse Tribute)
£6adv £8door
Formed in 2008 and originally starting as a 4-piece with live keyboards, Hypermused found themselves as a 3-piece in 2009 and never looked back.

“The doubters said it couldn't be done... they said it was too complicated to replicate their sounds... you'll never pull it off..."

Well this is one of the most determined and professional bands on the circuit today. Putting years of individual skill to good use, Hypermused have achieved one of the best replicated sounds of any tribute out there. Come and see what Muse sounded like in small venues and experience the unbelievable atmosphere that their music creates in a more intimate setting!

Magic Teapot presents

John Smith
plus The Lake Poets, Steve Parker and Samuel Idwal
John Smith is the guitar man from Devon who has quietly become one of the most exciting voices on the new British folk scene. Touring relentlessly as headliner and support act, he has opened shows for John Martyn, Iron and Wine, Seth Lakeman, Davy Graham, John Renbourn, David Gray, Cara Dillon, James Yorkston, Martin Carthy, Jools Holland, Tinariwen, Martin Simpson, Gil Scott-Heron and Chris Thile. John is a regular on the UK festival circuit, having played shows at Glastonbury, Green Man, Cambridge and many others. In this way, he has found a loyal following in the UK and Ireland, Europe, Japan, Mexico, the USA and Canada. Slow but sure.

John plays the steel-string acoustic guitar. Sometimes with a slide, sometimes on his lap, sometimes de-tuning the thing mid-song. He was named Young Acoustic Guitarist Of The Year in 2003 and hasn’t stopped to look back, unless it’s to pick up a banjo. His playing combined with his honey-on-gravel vocals have brought crowds to pin-drop silence and rapturous applause.

Remember; always check with the venue before travelling, or grab a ticket direct from the site:
