TIDE OF SOUND
( LATE BAR )
LATE BAR - 23:30. This is going to be a be a very big night in the Club. One of the most popular groups that we have ever had, and they're back just to entertain you. Born out of one of the most successful covers bands of the last decade comes a duo for a new decade. Tide Of Sound incorporates the combined talents of two of the founder members of Hypnosis to create a new and effervescent act capable of performing a wide selection of songs from the sixties all the way through to modern chart hits. Utilising all their experience from performing in covers bands for the last 20 years Colette and Neil Alcock now bring a new, fresh approach to duo based entertainment. The whole package is based on quality. From the detail shown in the vocal performance to the unique and professionally programmed arrangements, you will see why this is one duo you can guarantee that won't sound dated or generic. Tide Of Sound is fronted by one of the most dynamic, energetic and illuminating female vocalists on the circuit with a vocal range that lends itself to virtually any genre. Couple this with the talent of one of the most accomplished keyboard player/programmer/vocalist and the diversity of their play list will become apparent. From sixties classics to the groovy 70's of the Jacksons and Stevie Wonder , the 80's electronica (Yazoo/Gary Numan), ska (The Specials) and dance (Soul 2 Soul,Black Box), through the 90's dance (N-Trance/Snap/Livin Joy),brit pop (Blur) and pop (Dee Lite) up to the modern 00's indie/rock (Coldplay/Snow Patrol/Killers) and pop ( Lady Gaga/Beyonce/Take That). Add to this production values that you would more likely see from a full gigging band, full lighting and effects and you will understand why Tide Of Sound is not your normal type of duo. Whatever you do, don't miss out.

UP ALL NIGHT (NEW)
Up All Night formed in July 2016. Neil and Nick had both been in a previous band TopDraw, and wanted to form a new band. However finding a singer and a good singer is really hard. Luckily through an old school friend Neil and Nick met Janine. Instantly there was chemistry and Janine’s voice was incredible!
Guitarist next…Again its hard to find a good guitarist and one that fits into what you want to play. Neil met our original guitarist, Karl of all places in the local Tesco (where Karl worked). After a few conversations Karl came for a meet and greet and it was instantly apparent that everyone clicked and it also helped that Karl was a very talented guitarist.
After around 8 months of rehearsals, jamming and picking songs we liked or had played in previous bands, we put together a set and played our first gig.
Since then things have gone wild for us, after having call backs after nearly every gig we played! We already have an impressively full calendar right up to December – Crazy times!
However, things weren’t all plain sailing as shocking news came to us when Karl announced he was waiting to chase his dream of turning professional and he had soon acquired a contract on the cruise ships. We could not deny an amazing talent like Karl a chance at his dreams so although it was a massive shame to us, we parted on good terms and wish him well.
After a few auditions for a new guitarist we found Phil who slotted right in – quick to learn and eager to play – always a good combination! He has enjoyed his first couple of gigs with us and adds his own unique energy to the line-up.
We are friendly and fun based band always ready to start, prolong or add to the party!
PETER PODS PEAS
Despite being the second ugliest band in the country they have over the last two decades become one of the best 60's revival bands south of the Thames.

Peter Pod's Peas aim to give you the best fun evening anyone can possibly have standing up. They are old enough NEVER to take themselves too seriously, but they take great pride in what they produce.
