WINEHOUSE, MARK RONSON) AND YOU JUST KNOW SOMETHING
SPECIAL IS HAPPENING!
This song is CANTALOOP’S tour de force! Maybe not their swan song, but hell baby its sweet.. Slip It
Back is a heady mixture of something old and something new, spinning lyrics about arriving at the
crossroads that ultimately defines us… what if…… would you do it all the same again?
Whether its Dannie Dee’s up font soul vocal or two brothers weaving their unique harmonises into a
middle eight you know it’s got soul. 1ooc puts the seal on this melodically infused joint giving Slip It
Back its trademark CANTALOOP funk chorus. Please remember they’re not your regular dot to dot
Funksters!
Yes they’ve brought the HAGGIS HORNS back to blaze over this with Atholl firing up his flute bringin
some Nu Funk inferno to the climax of the song. If you don’t know these boys which rock have you
been under! Previously they’ve dropped their funkiness on many from AMY WINEHOUSE to MARK
RONSON/THE ROOTS and beyond.

APPEARING ON Thursday, March 14th, 2019

A Band on Ship [+]

Free entry.

ABOS have been around a long time with collectively over a century of music making under their fingers.

At the core of their fluid collective lies a love of real ale and music, importantly in that order.

“You can have beer without music,  but music without beer is just wrong”

Perhaps their music sounds better after a pint or two, but that could be a universal truth.

These write ups are often heavy on name dropping and light on truth. I wouldn’t stoop that low.

One of the band played bass for Paul McCartney live on radio one.

Two of the band were in the Family Mahone, and one of them once drank half a pint of absinthe for a bet.

Expect bass and mandolin with guitar and accordion. Add in possible guests on fiddle and percussion, and you get the idea.

Songs and tunes plundered from 600 years of tradition will leave your feet tapping and your glasses empty,  as you join in the inevitable journey to closing time and a taxi home.

Slots available from 8pm.

Chris Tavener Music

Chris Tavener is a satirical singer-songwriter, known for his mischievously witty lyrics, well-crafted songwriting and a vintage sound.

Having performed over 230 times in 2015, Chris is one of the most hard-working musicians in the North West. His latest EP sold in the hundreds of copies and a new release for 2016 has received acclaim from Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music.

Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, Chris began writing and producing demo albums at age 17. Rather than write about himself, he wrote songs that featured interesting characters or ironic takes on social behaviour. Five albums later he recorded his latest studio EP that’s seen him perform from Edinburgh to London. In March to April 2016 he took on a nationwide tour visiting 10 cities over 6 weeks. He launched his new EP “i’m sorrdy bi’m drunnk” in Manchester on 19th May.

Hazel O’Connor [+]

Sold Out

The first major female star of the 80’s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame in 1980 starring in the iconic film Breaking Glass. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel’s ageless songs include Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother, Monsters in
Disguise, Calls The Tune, If Only, Give Me An Inch, Blackman and Hanging Around – all of which seem even more relevant in our present times. Accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax and vocals and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards and vocals, this powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings
a classy touch of energy to Hazel’s vibrant performance.
With a new album celebrating and reflecting Hazel’s very own Hallelujah Moments, expect a soulful introspective dip into Hazel’s stunning portfolio, the old and the new. A sumptuous night of some of the greatest songs of the 20th Century delivered with passion and fire. With a special Meet & Greet immediately after the show you’re in for a treat. Unmissable, book early!

“ It’s all there, that voice, soaring sax …timeless.”. Glastonbury Festival

The Loose Kites [+]

Free before 9pm // £4 thereafter.

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


Imagine if you will a band. Not just any ordinary band, but a band cut from a different cloth.

A band with soul, whose sole mission is to infect the planet with love, with passion and with music to make you smile and make you think. Imagine, if you can, the loose kites.

With a unique and dynamic eight-piece line up, including members with diverse backgrounds, the kites represent something different. With a sound which includes elements of folk, pop, rock and more, the band relies not only on the staples of voice, guitar, bass and drums, but also brass, woodwind, strings and keys. Those additional elements make the distinctive kites sound a fuller one. That sound still accentuates the positive, with the focus very much on the groove, and the catchiness of the tunes. Harmonies abound, and melody is king.

The band has developed and adapted new elements into its core since being formed five years ago. After the release of their self-titled debut back in 2009, the band quickly picked up gigs, radio and an endorsement with the highly acclaimed Farida guitar company, alongside Oasis, Maximo Park, The Levellers and The Wombats. The company has hailed them as ‘…one of the most exciting folk acts this country has produced in recent years’.

Now the kites are moving forward with their brand new album, ‘Of Bricks And Brambles’. A marked progression from their debut, the album shows that the band are not afraid of expressing themselves in a variety of musical settings. Taking inspiration from local life on the terraced streets where they grew up, the album takes queues from far and wide, and transfers them into the band’s very special sound. The album is accompanied by a range of exciting and witty videos which will be used to promote forthcoming singles.

With an enviable live record, including headlining national festivals, the band’s shows have become legendary in their home area. Most recently rocking Telford’s Warehouse in Chester, the band are set for select UK and international dates in 2014.

The loose kites mix a strong sense of local tradition with an international outlook. Their music is good-time-low-down-good-fun, delivered within a timeless setting, of emotion and soulfulness. Make sure you are at the album launch, and are ready to dance and sing your heart out.
