The Christians

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 acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s both in the UK and Europe 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 of him as having ‘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.

Currently embarking on a huge UK Tour playing their well known back catalogue and one or two favourites selected from newer albums.

Catch them on tour and find out why Chris Evans said 'it was the best gig I've ever been to'

Simply Dylan - Celebrating Bob Dylan's 80th Birthday
Simply Dylan is as straightforward as the title suggests: no frills, no gimmicks and no pretense. Led by front man John O’Connell, the band delivers a tribute to Bob Dylan celebrating the rich and diverse work of the award-winning artist. It is their interpretations, precise playing and high energy renditions of some of Dylan's back catalogue that has caught the attention of many Bobcats.
What started as a modest project in 2011, recognizing Dylan's 70th Birthday, the success of the band has been nothing short of remarkable from selling out the Cavern Club 6 times, to receiving fantastic reviews from audiences across the UK, to opening up the Isle of Wight Festival on the Big Top Stage. 
Ten years on, 2021 will see the band celebrate Bob Dylan’s 80th Birthday, touring the UK and once again honoring one of the world’s most prodigious songwriters.
“Together, they marry the extraordinary range and beauty of Dylan's lyrics with the joyous and exuberant, celebratory sound I have always secretly wanted to hear whenever, in recent decades, I have listened to Bob Dylan.”
Alan Bleasdale, Playwright
A show every Bob Dylan fan should see.” 
Louder than War

“Johnny is one of the most talented musicians I have come across and his Dylan set is effortlessly brilliant."
Peter Hooton, The Farm

“There’s no attempt to look or dress like Dylan or imitate his voice. Instead you get John’s excellent and powerful voice, enunciating the words clearly backed up by a brilliant bassist and violinist.”
Trust the Wizards

“Great songs performed by musicians at the top of their game.”

Fleetingwood Mac

Returning by popular demand - Fleetingwood Mac!

We are Fleetingwood Mac, an exciting tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac.

We didn’t just want to be another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead we wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!

As much as we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?

A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses……

We work hard in rehearsals to get the details right and do justice to some classic songs that play a huge part in many people’s lives.

We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as who we are, five young musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider audience.

Songs you can expect to hear at our shows

Rhiannon, Go Your Own Way, Oh Well, Tusk, Everywhere, Songbird, Gold Dust Woman, Don’t Stop, You Make Loving Fun, Black Magic Woman, Dreams, Little Lies, Gypsy, Say You Love Me, The Chain, Landslide, Seven Wonders, Stand Back, Second Hand News, Isn’t it Midnight, Sara, Shake Your Money Maker, Big Love, Paper Doll, World Turning, Edge Of Seventeen
