Dawson Smith & The Dissenters
£3
Based in Leicester, UK for over twenty five years, Dawson Smith is originally from Abertillery, South Wales and has a well earned reputation for fronting great bands and rocking venues all over the UK and beyond. Dawson first made his name as the frontman / songwriter of blues rockers The Healers (’90s). Following The Healers split, Dawson recorded two successful solo albums. Valley Boy (2002) and The River Road (2005). Loads of gigging followed, playing with a flexible band line up. In 2005 Dawson put together THE DISSENTERS with the intention of forming his dream ‘road band’ able to deliver the type of driving swamp blues and rootsy Americana bar room rock & roll that has always been the backdrop to Dawson’s distinctive songs.

Dawson's break through album was 'Took The Night' (2012) which featured a host of guest musicians on specific tracks including a duet with Sally Barker, Lee Spreadbury on Organ and Piano, Mick Ridgeway on Blues Harp and Caroline O'Donnell on Accordion.
On the song 'Mexicalli' Dawson put together an all star brass section with Gaz Birtles (Beautiful South) Drew Stansall (Specials) and John Harris (Welsh Champion).

Dawson Smith & The Dissenters have built an enviable reputation as a smokin’ live band and always a great night out, with a large mailing list and loyal following and an extensive gig circuit around the UK.

There is such depth to Dawson Smith & The Dissenters that it is not easy to describe how they sound. Comparisons with Los Lobos, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Blackberry Smoke (and more) are usual and welcomed.

Dawson Smith - Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitars

IVA MORRISSEY - A sincere homage to Morrissey


Viva Morrissey are Europe's only tribute to the present-day Morrissey.

Based in the Holy City of Manchester, Morrissey's birthplace, and home of his former band The Smiths, Viva Morrissey are highly regarded for the authenticity and accuracy that they bring to their performance.

Viva Morrissey's concerts are based on Morrissey's present-day solo shows, which makes their live shows markedly different from those of tributes to The Smiths.

The Viva Morrissey 6 piece 90 minute live set includes Morrissey's best known and most loved solo material alongside many of the classic Smiths songs.

Having been a successful recording artist for over 30 years, Morrissey is rightly regarded as a legendary figure in the music industry, as well as a true cultural icon, therefore a tribute to his entire career (so far) was long overdue

Mick Pini
£3
As well as touring Europe with B.B. King and supporting such blues greats as Buddy Guy, Freddie King and Jimmy Rogers: Mick Pini has earned himself a strong following, particularly in Europe. Eric Clapton described him in 1996 as ‘The legitimate successor to Peter Green’.

However, Mick Pini is unquestionably a unique living legend in his own right ... the genuine article. His authentic voice and outstanding guitar work personifies the blues in an inimitable way.

Mick has toured the world for more than 40 year. He lives, breathes, plays and sings the blues with genuine passion even his 1954 Fender Stratocaster smokes!

1998 saw the band winning the prestigious ‘Blues Band of the Month’ award at ‘Talkin Blues’ in Cologne. In January 1999 the band recorded their definitive album ‘Blues Gonna Be My Way’. It saw the most welcome return of Mike Vernon as producer. Mike produced Mick’s ‘Wildman’ album in 1989. This featured A.B. Burns, Chris Youlden and Paul Jones, and sold over 20,000 copies.

From folky beginnings as an acoustic duo in 2011, Bellatones have evolved in to a multi-instrumental 5-piece rock behemoth with a reputation for soaring melodies, driving rhythms and dramatic songs, showcased in their energetic live performances.
Their recent evolution has brought a lively fusion of blues, rock and dance influences, which has seen audiences dancing in the aisles and on the tables at recent gigs.
Our songs range from the mellow tones of If You Ever, through to the epic power of I Swear and the grimy groove rock of The Sin of it All.
HAZ AND THE HAZ BEANS
Harry Wade lives in Leicester. Inevitably, therefore, he writes love songs. There are love songs about tall women (I Want 2 Metre), (wild women) (Safari So Good) and Greek salad (Greece Is Not The Word). There is even a love song about the daughter of a French baker (She offered me the pleasure and the pain). The love didnt always work out (Make or Break, But I Dont Think We are Going To Make It). New this year is a song actually set in Clarendon Park Road (Lithuanian Pole-dancer). And there is still one about the monkey.
He wanted to be like Billy Bragg but he is more Jake Thackray, with someone else playing the guitar. Luckily the person playing the guitar is the very talented Jake Manning. Jake is also playing a set of his own original songs (including The Mutineer, Dont Let The Devil Steal Your Blues and 27 Fires). Jake is also a Haz Bean, in a good way.

Wait 'til The Boys Get Here
The Bay Horse Boys

10 tracks of storytelling weaving between country, blues, rock, bluegrass & murderous Americana noir. Stylistically mischievous, the Boys never settle for formulas & everything is up for grabs in the pursuit of engaging & entertaining the listener. It’s all about the stories all of which are….., well, dear reader, let’s go back to 1979……
Lead singer Simon Feasey leaves England with his brother Ade & heads to Louisiana to be near their mother & find work. They wind up working on off shore oil rigs in the Gulf Of Mexico. The opening track Oil Field Trash describes the hostility & violence surrounding migrant workers (some things never change) & details an all too common incident that the brothers experienced in a bar. The responsibility for another potentially violent mishap lies with the feisty Mr Feasey himself as documented in the confessional Wait ‘til The Boys Get Here
On a happier note, Stranger On The Bayou describes the sheer joy of Louisiana life for our young adventurers & the instant love affair the brothers have with Cajun culture. Friends & girlfriends make an appearance in Jackson Street, a bitter sweet tale of living of the small town American dream.
Two dark tales from older oil field workers provide the screenplay for Gone & The Third Time. These swampy grooves defy genre definition, the stories defy belief but they were passed on by word of mouth & now, slightly embellished, pass into legend via these songs.
Years pass, the Louisiana dream fades & Ade tragically loses his life in a car accident. Simon then writes the ballad South Of Lafayette which bridges the gap between 1982 & the present day.
Simon happens to bring this song to a casual pub session where it has an instant impact on composer/producer/guitarist Lincoln Grounds. More songs appear from the past & along with fellow picker Daniel Hughes something resembling a band is formed & named after the pub The Bay Horse, "the bar by the river....".
The existing songs & basic ideas are further developed & crafted by Simon & Lincoln & the idea of an album is born.
Lincoln adds 3 songs into the mix. Red & The Elephant is the harrowing tale of Mary, a Circus Elephant that killed her handler and was subsequently hung in 1916 in Erwin Tennessee.
Sober Fool is a cautionary Bluegrass infused homage to the Bay Horse pub. A simple celebration featuring Daniels rustic banjo pickin’ & some Mando-guitar tom foolery by the writer.
Finally, Lincoln writes East Tennessee. A different kind of story altogether, lamenting the cycle of human oppression that plagues the world with particular reference to the treatment of Native & African Americans by those who fled Europe in search of freedom.

Rod Stewart aka Tony Julian
£3
With the looks, the moves and the uncanny voice, Tony Julians dynamic tribute act is as good as they come with audiences all over the UK enjoying the kind of performance second only to Rod Stewart himself!

Being the same age, Tonys act is based upon how Rod performs now with sharp suits and smart dress but with all the same moves. Add to this the looks and the indistinguishable singing voice and you have a tribute act that truly stands out!

Tonys act is completely self contained, supplying his own lights and professional sound system capable of filling any venue with high quality sound.

Unlike a lot of tribute artists, Tony doesn’t take the stand-off approach regularly getting into the crowd and getting everybody involved in the night.

Out of all his nights Tony enjoys his tribute to Rod Stewart the most. With repeat performances up and down the UK he is regularly greeted by fans who have enjoyed his act before and by the end of the night there is always new fans asking where he will play next.



Whether you are a die hard Stewart fan or just looking for a night of great music and entertainment, Tony’s tribute act will never disappoint.
