SATURDAY FEBRUARY 8th
HEART OF GLASS
A cast iron guarantee of a superb night out for our first event of the year with the very best BLONDIE tribute in the country, we don’t ask them back every year for nothing!! And the vid is from the Shire Hall last year…bonus!!
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 22nd
HOLY MOLY & THE CRACKERS
Following a pretty last minute addition to the bill last year it was only a matter of time before we had this band back headlining in their own right.
Brought together by an eclectic taste in folk music and the kind of enthusiasm that can only be born in the slither of time between last orders and closing time, Holy Moly and the Crackers formed in 2011. Holy Moly and the Crackers are influenced by a wide range of styles and artists; the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Laura Marling. As such they play a lively, moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British ‘folk’n’roll’.
SATURDAY APRIL 5th
The unique six man tribute to rock’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with trademark cannons, a wall of Marshalls and two hours of High Voltage Rock and Roll. And in this AC/DC’s fortieth year, the band cover both eras as always with both Bon Scott and ‘Pete’ Brian Johnson present to take you on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember.
SATURDAY MARCH 8th
THE GLEN MILLER LEGACY
THE NORTHERN SHOWTIME ORCHESTRA
Following the superb Sinatra show in November it was inevitable that we had the Northern Showtime Orchestra back with their Glen Miller show, and here they are!
SATURDAY MARCH 22nd
Following their barnstorming performances at last years carnival it was also inevitable that we got this terrific band back in town for full blown concert. An eclectic mix of Ska, Punk and anything else you can dance along to!
SATURDAY APRIL 19th
GENO WASHINGTON & THE YO YO’S
A living legend returns! Always ready to rock the house, the King of the Swingers Geno Washington is the incarnation of all things ’60s. Hipsters and flipsters, movers and shakers alike, are all rendered incapable of having a bad time, when the Good Time Guru gets his army of fans on the good foot! The old Geno magic still drags them in and sends them home high.
SATURDAY MAY 3rd
Without doubt the very best T Rex tribute in the land…the world perhaps! Back for the third year in a row performing for the 15th Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal concert (Formerly Cookridge) Bobby T is Marc Bolan!
FRIDAY MAY 16th
BLACKBEARDS TEA PARTY
Funky folk tunes, storming songs and an infectious stage energy, Blackbeard’s Tea Party mix fiddles & squeezeboxes, guitar noise & synth bass, and a feast of international hand percussion to bring you an unforgettable folk-rock extravaganza. Grounded in English traditions, but never afraid to explore more exotic musical avenues, they create a sound that is equal parts tasty, dramatic and danceable.
