    IAN LUTHER

    It is impossible to pigeon hole Ian Luther into any single music genre: he has created his own from a lifetime of listening and performing around the UK and Europe.

    It takes masterful musicianship to combine different styles of music into a 'must hear' experience, and right there we have the key to what makes Ian a star in waiting.

    CADA

    Mixing the rough with the smooth, a four piece Rock band that will lull you into a false sense of security with a bit of acoustic Coldplay, Stereophonics and Paul Weller before hitting you hard in the face with ZZ Top, AC/DC and everyone's favorite Motorhead classic.


    If Classic rock isn't your thing, Indie is also on the menu in the form of Arctic Monkeys, Oasis and Blur to name but a few....

    They also cater for the more mature audience who can sing along to the likes of Chris Isaac, The Kinks, The Cure, Beastie Boys or maybe even Billy Idol..

    Favourites like Sexy and I know it, summer of 69 and Sex on Fire are all part of the package...  probably shouldn't include Gay Bar within these songs.

    THE MAZ MITRENKO BAND

    Rockin’ Blues is The Maz Mitrenko Band’s business – and business is good!

    The powerful vocals and edgy, firebrand guitar of frontman Maz are ably reinforced by the powerhouse drumming of Phil Brittle and the solid, punchy bass guitar of Pete Vickers.

    The band play a mixture of finely honed original songs alongside a range of classic blues and rock covers from the likes of Rory Gallagher and Jimi Hendrix to some less likely selections from Steve Earle and Robin Trower.

We play a huge ...range of covers from the 60's right up to today. Our aim is to play covers that other bands don't normally do, but also include 'THE' classics.
