The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil's treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.
The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.
The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands) Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.
Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll' band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That's about to change. The Band's first full tour for a long time takes place next May with a new studio album in place. They look forward to seeing you then.
Live/Wireis The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rockmusic's greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls' andover two hours of High Voltage Rock 'n' Roll in a show critically acclaimed forits closeness in look and sound to the real thing. Both Bon (Dave) and Brian(Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and withthe Rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is givento Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detailin appearance, energy and playing.
Theband aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, andyou are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in forthe aficionados!
We’d be hung, drawn andquartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway tohell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fireceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time youare still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE.

Z-LIST CELEBRITY: Life after the Britain's Got Talent Finals
In June 2018 musical comedian, Micky P. Kerr, was rocketed to stardom when he won the hearts of the nation and wowed both Simon Cowell and Andy Murray's mum with his performances on Britain's Got Talent. Time has passed and he's now been brought safely back down to earth and back into his comfort zone as a Z-List Celebrity.
In this, his debut solo tour, the now semi-famous Micky invites you to join him for an evening of music, social commentary and, above all, lots of laughs.
You will also have the chance to hear exclusive extracts from his BGT memoirs, a diary of what ‘really' happened backstage during the filming, including juicy gossip and jaw-dropping revelations about some of your favourite household names.

THE UNRAVELLING WILBURYS - a tribute to The Traveling Wilburys and their rock legend members –
Just when they were about to make itto the big time, this band of good ol’ boys from Nashville, Tennessee had awhole bunch of songs (allegedly) stolen by Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, GeorgeHarrison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, under the late 80s ‘supergroup’ pseudonym “TheTraveling Wilburys”. Things were so badafter that, the real Wilbury brothers (Walter, Sticky Willy, Thumper, Javelinand Blind Melon) resorted to dressing up as The Beatles, and spent over 20years touring as “Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band”. After a lengthy legal battle, a HazzardCounty judge ruled the boys could git back their true identity and hit thehighway with all their old songs including: “Handle With Care”; “The End Of The Line”; “The Devil’s Been Busy”; “Tweeter and The Monkey Man”, “Heading ForThe Light” and by way of compensation, solo choice cuts: “Pretty Woman”; “You’ve Got It”; “Mr Blue Sky”; “Evil Woman”; “Mr Tambourine Man”; “Make YouFeel My Love”; “Running Down A Dream”; “I Won’t Back Down”; “What Is Life”; “Here Comes The Sun”; “Runaway” and many other great songs.
“Captured the style andsounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience anevening to remember”
