Leeds Steampunk Market and Captain Cumberpatch’s Curious Creations are proud to bring you

Montague Jacques Fromage and Dale Rowles from BB Blackdog 

Funky tunes in between by DJ Baron von Krakenhunter

Friday 17th June 2016

at

The Albert Hotel (now just a pub)

Bridge Street, Keighley, West Yorkshire BD21 1AA

Doors open 6.30, gig starts 7pm, finishes at 10pm

£7 advance, £8 on the door

Alternating and joint performances throughout the evening with the main part of the gig ending at 10pm.

We have made this a cheaper and earlier running night due to the fact that the last trains out of Keighley are at around 10.30pm.

The pub is licenced to stay open until gone 2am so if you want to stick around, buy merchandise, take photos, have some more drinks, dance badly to some fun tunes (steampunk and non-steampunk probably) and talk nonsense until the early hours then we can do so…

This gig is on the 1st floor and regrettably has no access other than the stairs as it is an old building.

The main bar is downstairs but the room does have its own bar which will be fully stocked and open so you don’t need to carry drinks up the stairs. There are toilets on this level as well and between sets smokers will obviously need to smoke outside – you are allowed to use the fire escape from the room which leads directly down to the street at the back of the pub.

We have decided to have the bar open upstairs as apparently the pub gets very rammed and busy on a Friday night so this will make it more comfortable for all. 

This is a smaller venue than we have used in the past and capacity is limited to 70 (this needs to include performers etc). Booking your ticket online to secure a place is highly recommended!

Whitby Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 4 - Let's keep Music Live!

Festival Artwork

When this news gets out, it will undoubtedly excite festival connoisseurs, live music lovers and aspiring musicians in and around North Yorkshire!

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Whitby Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 4 will be taking place at Whitby Pavilion on Sunday 2nd October 2016! 

As this is our fourth year in Whitby, we wanted to showcase the quality of live music in the UK and present a line-up with at least one legendary name…………plus a surprise or two.  We think we have achieved this with Climax Blues Band headlining and five other very different sounds in the line-up, this is sure to be a great days entertainment and one festival not to miss!

Climax Blues Band has had huge selling albums like FM/Live and Gold Plated, the 1976 hit single “Couldn’t Get It Right” (from Gold Plated) and “I Love You” in 1981, their reputation carrying right through until the tragic death of founder member Colin Cooper in 2008.  Colin’s death could have meant the end of the band, but his desire was for the band to continue creating the fine blues blend that they have been associated with since their formation………Colin’s desire has been accepted with relish by the remaining members of the band.

This solid unit has flown the Climax flag with tremendous passion and style; the spring in their step is taking the band forward and pleasing crowds throughout Europe.  The ‘seamless’ transition in carrying on creating the unique Climax  sound is the result of hard work, disguised by a band having a great time making music….

This year’s full line-up comprises of:

Climax Blues Band – it’s been a long road…..but one things for sure, the Climax Blues Band of today carries the same standard of quality as it did when the band formed back in the late 60s!

Paul Lamb And The King Snakes – Paul Lamb is known by aficionados and music press around the world as a foremost blues harmonica exponent and is a true gentleman of the blues!

Kyla Brox – turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, Kyla’s authentic voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer’s art!

Del Bromham’s Blues Devils – Del Bromham is best known for his work as singer/guitarist/songwriter for the now legendary UK band Stray, so expect a powerful show from this very special line-up!

Blue Swamp Band – Johnnie Williamson from The Animals and Mike Bowden from Dr Truth are two artists that gel so well together, creating a great sound peppered with trademark humour!

Mick Simpson initially coming to public notice when playing with Elkie Brooks in the 1980s, Mick has written music with John Parr (St.Elmo’s Fire), that was featured in several Hollywood movies!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With this calibre of artist stepping on stage, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a creative mix of Blues, Rock and R & B, with a contemporary take on one or two classic songs!

Lincoln Folk, Roots & World Music Festival - "Music spanning over half a Century"

Festival Artwork

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Lincoln Folk, Roots & World Music Festival, will be taking place at Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday 31st July 2016

As our first festival of this kind in Lincoln, we wanted to showcase the quality of live music in the UK and present a line-up with at least one legendary name…………plus a surprise or two.  We think we have achieved this and with Lindisfarne headlining, a mix of household names and emerging artists; this will most definitely be a festival to remember and one not to miss!

Lindisfarne, the unforgettable 70s folk-rock pioneers return to form with a classic six-piece line up of long-time members, fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle, guitars; Dave Hull-Denholm, vocal, guitars; Steve Daggett, vocal, keyboards, guitars; Charlie Harcourt, guitar, vocal; Ian Thomson, bass, vocal and Paul Thompson (ex-Roxy Music) drums.

With a repertoire of incredible songs like “Meet Me On The Corner”, “Fog On The Tyne”, “Lady Eleanor” and “Run For Home” and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along

Words alone cannot convey the magical sounds they created and the only way to truly experience this is by seeing them live.  But for a taste of music history and what this band is all about, please have a look and listen to a couple of classics performed by the current line-up: “Meet Me On The Corner” at https://youtu.be/Sd18NS8-FZs?t=12s and Lady Eleanor” at https://youtu.be/ELfiSr0EbwU

The full line-up comprises of:

  • Lindisfarne – during the early ’70s, they were one of the hottest folk-based rockbands in England and with their continuing story, the Lindisfarne family is still wowing audiences wherever they play!
  • Julie Felix – there are those who just have to play and sing; to whom there can be no question of quitting; to whom their work is not a job but a calling…….. Julie Felix is one such musician!
  • Gilmore & Roberts –  combine award-winning songwriting with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound that just has to be heard!
  • Polly And The Billets Doux – their energy-filled live performances and genre-defying quartet boast a genius blend of Folk, Pop, Rock N’ Roll, Soul, Country, Blues and even Gospel!
  • Said The Maiden – three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music and sing traditional songs from around the UK and America, often in three part acapella harmony!
  • The Life And Times Of The Brothers Hogg – an original brand of folky, bluegrass-tinged Americana music, soaring four part harmonies, foot stomping rhythms and immersive storytelling!

Lindisfarne colour

Harpenden Folk, Roots & World Music Festival - "Music spanning over half a Century"

Festival Artwork

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Harpenden Folk, Roots & World Music Festival, will be taking place at Harpenden Public Halls on Saturday 27th August 2016

As our first festival of this kind in Harpenden, we wanted to showcase the quality of live music in the UK and present a line-up with at least one legendary name…………plus a surprise or two.  We think we have achieved this and with Lindisfarne headlining, a mix of household names and emerging artists; this will most definitely be a festival to remember and one not to miss!

Lindisfarne, the unforgettable 70s folk-rock pioneers return to form with a classic six-piece line up of long-time members, fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements on vocals, mandolin, fiddle and slide guitar.

With a repertoire of magical songs like Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed and is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet and singing along

Words alone cannot convey the magical sounds they created and the only way to truly experience this, is by seeing them live. But for a taste of music history and what this band is all about, please have a look and listen to Lindisfarne TV at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gkTHoAk-eA&feature=youtu.be&list=PL3EEB94938FBCE85F

The full line-up comprises of:

  • Lindisfarne – during the early ’70s, they were one of the hottest folk-based rockbands in England and with their continuing story, the Lindisfarne family is still wowing audiences wherever they play!
  • Julie Felix – there are those who just have to play and sing; to whom there can be no question of quitting; to whom their work is not a job but a calling…….. Julie Felix is one such musician!
  • Dexeter – playing three shows at the O2 in London to wonderful acclaim including receiving the only standing ovation at Bob Harris’s Under The Apple Tree stage, what more is to be said!
  • Polly And The Billets Doux – their energy-filled live performances and genre-defying quartet boast a genius blend of Folk, Pop, Rock N’ Roll, Soul, Country, Blues and even Gospel!
  • Linda Em – her lyrical narrative has a nostalgic feel to it bringing back the early days of Woodstock, with some saying that she has an old soul for such a young woman!
  • Said The Maiden – three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music and sing traditional songs from around the UK and America, often in three part acapella harmony!
  • Delta Ladies – a sound that draws on American & European Roots music, folk, world and bluegrass influences and retains just a shade of blues to create a highly individual and exotic style!

There is no doubt that this will be a great days entertainment and memorable day in Lincolnshire

Don’t miss out on Harpenden Folk, Roots & World Music Festival on Saturday 27th August

The festival will take place at Harpenden Public Halls, Southdown Rd, Harpenden, Hertfordshire AL5 1PD
