As seen on BBC TV & endorsed by Bryan Ferry himself! Roxy Magic are without doubt the UK's No.1 Roxy Music tribute band. All the hits are flawlessly performed in this authentic tribute show. We create, entirely live, material that 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 musicianship and a wonderful Bryan Ferry look and sound-alike, in the person of singer Kevin Hackett, combine to do just that. Listen out for hits such as: Virginia Plain, Over You, Oh Yeah, Angel Eyes, Street Life, Love Is The Drug, Let's Stick Together, Ladytron, Both Ends Burning, Dance Away, If There Is Something, plus many many more.
Roxy Magic are proud to announce that their newest recruit is Chris Garfield on lead guitar. Chris was a founder member of Jimmy James`s Vagabonds and has recently completed a four year tour with Paul Carrack who famously played keyboards with Roxy Music. The addition of Chris on lead guitar takes Roxy magic to an even higher level of musicianship and professionalism!

Touring Europe with their much anticipated second album release 'Army Of Three'. Produced by the legend that is Chris Tsangarides (Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Gary Moore, Judas Priest).
Having made a statement of intent in 2011 with their stunning all original debut album The Radium. Followed by a relentless touring schedule with legends such as Michael Schenker, Tracer, Uriah Heep, Johnny Winter and Wilko Johnson. VATA are now establishing themselves as one of the UK's premier exponents of high energy Blues Rock. April 2013 saw the release of 'Live From Marshall' a spectacular DVD capture of their stunning live sold out show at the holy grail of sound 'Marshall Amplification'.
Virgil McMahon - winner of 'Best Guitarist 2013' fronts the power trio with his incredible fret board skills and seasoned vocals. Brother Gabriel on drums a formidable presence and master of intricate fills, drives the band through it's incredibly tight set. Holding the reins on bass is Jack Alexander Timmis. Gabriel and Jack provide the platform for Virgil to shine. The end result a jaw dropping and apparently telepathic set that is not to be missed.
Already taking European festival stages by storm. This album release promises to take the band to the next level. Just left me broken AND low

Limehouse Lizzy

The Marrs Bar, Worcester
Time: 20:00 to 23:45
Cost: 11 in advance

11 in advance available here: http://www.limehouselizzy.co.uk/ticketpurchase.php?tour_id=956

Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest & most popular performers. They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.
Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away last year.
Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing have led to their performance being described as "beyond tribute", by both audience and critics alike.
Following the enormous success of their "Live & Dangerous" & "Dedication" tours, the band embarked upon their "Into the Limelight" tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2's 'Arena' documentary series of the same name.
The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at a rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.
In 2014 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott. This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium.
Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like "Whisky in the Jar" and "Black Rose", amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks "The Boys are Back in Town", "Sarah" and many others we've come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.
'...Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music's Hardest Working UK Bands List' Billboard Magazine
"Limehouse Lizzy's Wayne Ellis, an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott..." The Guardian
"entertainment for more than a decadefantastic live music" Arena BBC2
"if you're sceptical about tribute acts, you won't be after seeing Limehouse Lizzy" Radio Times
"Gig of the week" The Mirror

Cost: 17 in advance

'Political, intense, angular and beautiful' Colin Murray, BBC Radio 1
'Nizlopi involved the crowd like no other. If you didn't get stuck in with at least one harmony then you looked odd.' The Sun
'Everything I know about live performance I learned from them' Ed Sheeran (ex-roadie to Nizlopi)

Nizlopi are John Parker (double bass/beat box) and Luke Concannon (vocals/guitar), a duo who sound like a four piece, folk hip-hop band.
They are most widely known, for being the underground, independent act that topped the UK and Irish charts with 'The JCB song' in 2005.
They have a fierce reputation for their inspiring, moving, live shows often taking the show into the heart of the audience.
Having been doing their own things for the past four years, they have come back together in 2013 performing new material, songs from their two previous albums and material for Luke's new solo album 'Give It All'.
'We immediately started writing new material in the rehearsals. The fire is as hot as ever.' says Luke The band announced a low-key first show back at The Borderline in London in June 2013. The show sold out in hours. A second show was announced. It also sold out in hours. They were back.
A live EP with recordings from those incredible comeback shows in planned for December 2013 followed by a new album in spring 2015 with festival dates planned for summer 2014. John Martyn and Danny Thompson meets The Roots and Ani Di Franco, Nizlopi play, joyful, honest, atavistic, heavenly folk stories. And when Nizlopi perform live, they are a positive force like no other.
