’25th ANNIVERSARY TOUR’
Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.
From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 25th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.
Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2018, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!
‘…Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS for Music’s Hardest Working UK Bands List’
“Limehouse Lizzy’s Wayne Ellis, an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott…”
“entertainment for more than a decade…fantastic live music”
“if you’re sceptical about tribute acts, you won’t be after seeing Limehouse Lizzy”
“Gig of the week”

Light Tide – are a four piece from Yorkshire UK who adore creating music and are influenced by rock and folk music. Founding member Will East, had success as a solo act playing for, and on, BBC Introducing Sheffield and releasing Light Tide’s first album as an instrumental. Going forward to grow the project he realised that he needed to add more elements to the band. He first met Darren at venue local to Sheffield and with no hesitation decided to get him on-board, soon after Jordan and Sam joined up making it into the four piece that it is today.
“A band to keep your eyes on in 2018” – BBC INTRODUCING SHEFFIELD
William East – Lead Guitar
Jordan McLean – Drums
Darren Cadwallander – Vocals & Rhythm Guitar
Sam Bennett – Bass & Rhythm Guitar
Murder at the Seaside – are vocalists Sally Leigh, Heather Cassim and Guitarist Phil Johnson with the more recent addition of Matt on drums giving them a fuller sound. Between them they decided they wanted to create a mellow yet addictive acoustic sound packed full of harmony goodness. The Sheffield based band take inspiration from narrative songwriting, poppy melodies and mixing old and new sounds together. Think Doris Day meets The Smiths.

William “Bill” Mead had a cult following in the late 1970s with his raunchy London and Kent R&B band, Rebel.
They became hot favourites alongside Dr Feelgood and The Stranglers in all the major London pub rock venues of the time., such as The Hope and Anchor and The Marquee.
Today, Bill’s high energy rock and blues band The Sharpeez have established themselves as ‘a band for all seasons’, who can be relied upon to deliver a sizzling set on any stage across Europe and the UK.
The individual musicians have fabulous playing pedigrees, but as a unit they have chemistry you could cut with a blunt knife!
Bill can pen a decent song too, and collectively they effortlessly transfer that on-stage power and energy to record, as evidenced on their critically acclaimed latest CD, “Wild One”, released in May 2018 on the 3MS label.
The album dented the upper reaches of the IBBA chart (Independent Blues Broadcasters Association) based on the vast amount of radio airplay the tracks attracted.
Their fifth album named after the classic Marlon Brando movie. Recorded in France, where they teamed up with acclaimed recording engineer Paul Madden, who has worked with a myriad of stars including The White Stripes, Jack Bruce, Robin Trower, The Stranglers and many others.
The material, the performances and the production all have equal importance across the new record, but Bill’s innate story telling skills are to the fore in the song writing.
There’s groove galore, ample feel, and they get down and dirty with some sizzling slide guitar licks. But the boys can really rock out too.
The album’s formidable “A Team” of craftsmenwoman are: William Mead on guitar and lead vocals, Loz Netto on slide guitar, Baz Payne on bass, Brendan O’Neill on drums and Teresa Revill on backing vocals. The record was mixed by Loz Netto.
Bill penned six of the nine songs, cowriting the other three cuts: “Bullet” with Strawbs member Brian Willoughby and Nashville based Cathryn Craig, “Stiletto Heels” with former Sharpeez guitarist Pete Goodey and “Desperate Man” with Pete Feenstra. The band shot a video for the opening track and radio hit, “Automatic Mode”.
The Sharpeez also scored with their previous albums, especially 2011’s “Open For Surgery” and 2014’s “Mississippi Thrill”.
Bill Mead released his first single “Rocka Shocka” with Rebel in the 1970s. He was signed by Fischer Z Management, and he wrote and recorded the album, “Strangers in New York” for Red Admiral Records.
Loz Netto is an internationally respected musician, composer, songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, producer and recording engineer. He began his professional career in the 1970’s and at 17, was hired to play guitar on tour for Drifters legend, Ben ‘E’ King.
Loz became a founder member of Sniff ‘n’ the Tears and by 1978 the band had a worldwide award -winning hit record with “Driver’s Seat”, from their acclaimed album “Fickle Heart”.
He recorded two albums with the band and toured the world, including a three month tour of the USA, playing huge football stadiums. He appeared on Top of The Pops, The Old Grey Whistle Test and other major TV shows in Europe and the US.
In 1982, Loz launched a solo career signing to Polygram Records, and recorded his debut solo album at George Martin’s Air Studios. His first single “Fade Away”, appeared in the U.S top 40 for six weeks. The single went Top Ten in Holland and charted in most European countries. He recorded two albums for Polygram.
He was then signed to Atlantic Records by label founder Ahmet Ertegun, and his album for the label received critical acclaim, and various songs were used in U.S films and T.V shows. His songs have been covered by Chaka Khan, Joe Walsh, Rick James, Kenny Loggins and others, and used on many TV and movie soundtracks.
Today’s core ‘on the road’ line up of The Sharpeez is Bill Mead on guitar and lead vocals, Loz Netto on guitar and vocals, David Tettmar on drums and Michael Steed on bass.
Bassist Michael Steed has a solid CV. He played with The Marmalade, The Rubettes and spent 18 years with hit pop band Love Affair. He has also been a sought-after bass player for theatre bands, in hit shows such as The Rocky Horror Show and The Blues Brothers. Drummer David Tettmar played in the acclaimed Rosco Levee Band.
The band’s sound unashamedly nods towards their main influences such as Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, George Thorogood, Paul Kossoff, Paul Rodgers and Andy Fraser.
But they mix that all up in the pot with their own recipe, and out comes a unique main course. Good time British R & B never tasted so good, as gigfestival audiences and “sold out” signs across Europe and beyond would confirm!

Nevinson Cuffy, aka SPRAGGY was born on November 18, 1962, in Point Michel, on the English speaking island of Dominica (Common Wealth of Dominica), located in the Caribbean sea between Martinique and Guadeloupe.
A carefree and turbulent child, but he quickly realizes that his life will be dedicated to music and that he will have a message to convey. At the age of 20, he was nicknamed “the man of golden voice”. His powerful and charismatic voice amazes everyone, the musicians and the local producers ask only for him, so he begins his first professional scenes.
Under the nickname Spraggy, which follows him since his teenage years and becomes his pseudonym, Nevinson released his first album “Blessing from above” (Kufe Records), followed by “Bad Boys”, made in Dominica with the best musicians of jazz, blues, reggae and bouillon from the island such as Hurricane, Cornell Philip… These albums confirm his reggae singer status as a must in his country and his name begins to cross borders.
Spraggy settled in Paris in 2000, and 2008 in Bordeaux where he now lives.

The Total Stone Roses are all pro musicians that do this for a living; all players involved are top draw Leeds College of Music graduates. They strive to re-create the roses sound live and are meticulous in the recreation of their material. You will not find a better sound a like band this side of 1989!
