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).

Rook & the Ravens [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

Free all night with a student card or Telford’s membership.


Together since 2007, the quintet have toured far and wide, from Dublin in Ireland to Dublin in California, from Nashville Tennessee to Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Doing so they’ve kept a loyal fanbase and remained proudly independent. Recorded over the last six years in several locations again with longtime producer Andy Macpherson (Teenage Fanclub, The Who), Chop House is an album in the truest sense, an evolutionary document which shows the band maturing since 2009’s début Sixteen Holes in Sixteen Souls. Chop House is available through the band’s website, www.rookandtheravens.com or from the merch stand at their shows.

“…impress with a versatility reminiscent of The Byrds and Traffic” – The Independent

“Articulate, edgy, blistering and self-assured” – BBC

“…their three-part harmonies are on par with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Newer songs rival Bends-era Radiohead and rock harder than early Queen. What other band can do all that and still sound at least as contemporary as Alt-J and Fleet Foxes?” – Colorado Springs Independent

“Young, bold and unfathomably talented” – High Voltage

Dave Sharp (The Alarm) [+]

Free Admission.

Davesharp2013

1989 saw the US release coast-to-coast hit album, Change, and #1 AOR single, ‘Sold Me Down the River’, from British rock band, The Alarm. Sadly, 1991 saw the surprise departure of the band’s lead singer…

Dave Sharp, co-founder of The Alarm had that previous year enlisted the help of legendary maverick record producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Willie Nelson & Leonard Cohen) to help cut his first solo record. It was a determined young man who walked through the doors at The Hit Factory NYC in December 1990, and in under a week Sharp’s album Hard Travlin’ had been recorded, mixed and delivered for release to IRS Records.

A relentless two-year period of Stateside touring followed including appearances at Farm Aid concerts and Earth Day celebrations before Sharp returned to New York City in 1992 to perform for an audience of 25,000 gathered in Central Park to celebrate the 80th birthday of folk legend Woody Guthrie. It was a seminal event for Dave Sharp who performed alongside Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Billy Bragg and shared the stage with The Right Reverend Jessie Jackson.

In 1996 Sharp once again teamed up with producer Bob Johnston entering Credence Clearwater Revival’s studio in San Francisco to record and release his second solo album, Downtown America. Two underground hits followed, ‘The Ghost of Preacher Casey’ and ‘Give Me Back My Job’, which both received healthy rotation across the board at American radio and led to television appearances on country music’s Nashville Network.

Sharp returned to the UK in 2002 to record his third solo album, The Power of Soul, released on Manchester’s Townsend Records, successfully re-introducing him to British audiences and earning him solo recognition across the UK with British music critics.

Dave Sharp’s solo albums have received positive critical recognition on both sides of the Atlantic and over the past decade and a half Sharp has been fortunate to work alongside many of the artists he has long respected. Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash have appeared on his recordings. He has performed alongside Kris Kristofferson, Bill Munroe and Porter Wagoner. Whether solo or with a band, guitar in hand, Dave Sharp delivers the ”Spirit of Rock & Roll.”

His music has been described as everything from folk and blues to rock, country and punk; his performances as everything from legendary to lousy. However one word can never be used to describe Dave Sharp: ”Predictable.”

Dave Sharp has embraced mainstream popular culture whilst at the same time remaining one step away from its grasp . . . he likes it that way!

‘It’s a Mighty Hard Road to be Travlin’ Down.’ Dave Sharp writes it, sings it and lives it.
