chem lane

Chemistry Lane combine sophisticated and often complex musical arrangements without ever seeming laboured. Their sound evades definition, changing and building, then U-turning mid-track without warning, keeping the listener enthralled. They straddle the fine line between the intensity and momentum of a rock band, complete with snatched moments of genuine heart felt beauty, whilst instilling punchy electro samples and loops worthy of immense dancefloor delirium.

The Jokers [+]

Free entry before 9pm…£4 after 9pm

The-Jokers-Logo-bandW_300x200-300x200

The Jokers, who hail from the North West of England, were formed in 2006, with the aim of creating the world’s greatest rock and roll band. Their debut album, ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’, while mixed by Mike Fraser in Vancouver, (straight after he had mixed AC/DC’s 10 million plus selling Black Ice album), was only recorded in guitarist Paul Hurst’s Liverpool living room, with duvets hanging on the walls to help the sound and provide a makeshift vocal booth.

Released in June 2009, ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’ was awarded 8/10 in Classic Rock’s Summer 2009 issue by scribe Dom Lawson, who stated that “If you’re going to start nominating yourself for the intermittently vacant position of rock’n’roll standard bearers, you’d better have the sound, the swagger and the songs. Fortunately, The Jokers have all three in large amounts. Frontman Wayne Parry has one of those voices designed to incite a riot of dancing and Olympic standard drinking, and every song is alive with a real sense of joyful bonhomie. Most attempts to nail that elusive rock’n’roll spirit fall flat because the band simply don’t have the juice. The Jokers, meanwhile, are swimming in it.” The band then spent two years on the road building a substantial live following supporting the likes of Hawkwind, Y&T, Joe Elliot & The Down N Outz, Argent, Anvil and Fozzy, selling over 8000 CD’s and 6,000 downloads of ‘The Big Rock ‘N’ Roll Show’ on their own independent record label along the way.

The jokers then hooked up with producer Andy Macpherson (Eric Clapton, The Who, Barclay James Harvest, The Buzzcocks etc), and began writing their second album, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive’, in his Revolution Studio in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire, early in 2011. After two years of perfectionist recording and mixing sessions, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive’ was finally mastered by Tim Young at Metropolis studios in London in February 2013. When massive hard rock label SPV/Steamhammer’s Head Of A&R Olly Hahn heard the album he immediately offered the Jokers a worldwide record deal and scheduled ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive’ for release in September 2013. Packed with glorious, fluid lead guitar licks, vivid, expressive vocals, groove ridden bass lines and crisp, cracking drums, ‘Rock ‘N Roll Is Alive’ received rave reviews on release; “This second serving from the hard touring foursome is full of sure-footed grit: complete with crystal clear riffing and tight, anthemic tendencies” noted Steve Bailey in Guitar Magazine. Fireworks Magazine’s Alan Holloway stated “They sound like a healthy mix of The Black Crowes, Chickenfoot and AC/DC, albeit with their own mojo throughout. Opener ‘Silver City’ has a great melody and guitar base, whilst ‘Let It Rock’ is very AC/DC but ‘NYC’ has a wonderful smooth feel backed up by a guitar part that brings to mind the theme from ‘School Of Rock’.” Powerplay writer Steve Swift pronounced “Buffoons need not apply here; this is serious business and these Jokers deliver. 9/10”

Encore De Funk [+]

Free all night with a student card.

Encore De Funk are a 7 piece collective from the North West. Brought together by their mutual love for Soul/Funk and Acid Jazz, the group decided to embark on project to create original interpretations of contemporary classics, adding in some untouched masterpieces along the way.

The band are at their best live. A solid rhythm section creates the perfect foundation for the commanding tones of the brass and the intricate Hammond/Rhodes keys. The overall groove is finished off with the smoothest of vocals which perfectly compliment this mix of modern and heritage styles.

Members of Encore De Funk have acquired a vast amount of experience in live performance over the years. They have graced the stages at some of Europe’s top festivals (such as The Cork Jazz Festival, Leeds/Reading Festival and Wakestock).

“As soon as you see five lads all clad in what appears to be the current trend, you immediately think you’re about to watch a newer version of The Strokes. When three of the five lads pick up guitars you start to wonder, could this be The Maccabees. But when Seegulls start playing, you’re aware that it’s them, it could only ever be them.” ~ The Pentatonic

Guided by the voice of God (Lee Majors), they have made it their sacred quest to reintroduce the world to their forgotten childhood, by assaulting them with powerful, mesmerising, dirty and sexual versions of Jamie and the Magic Torch, The Littlest Hobo, Thundercats and many other classic themes from 1980s television. This is their fight, their calling, their honour.
