    The Cinelli Brothers are one of the hottest rising blues bands on the UK blues scene and wowing audiences wherever they play.

    The band were born out of a passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from ’60s and ’70s. Marco Cinelli (guitarist, singer, composer) and his brother Alessandro Cinelli (drummer, singer) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown.

    So after countless shows in Paris, all over France and London, the Cinelli Brothers band was formed, and they recorded their first vinyl record "Babe Please Set Your Alarm" in the Soup Studio in London. This album comprises original compositions as well as covers such as ‘Chain of Fools’, or ‘Back Door Man’ – which stays true to Willie Dixon’s number, as well as Prince’s ‘Kiss’, in a remarkable shuffle rhythm.

    The Cinelli Brothers; it's a new generation of passionate musicians of Blues, Soul, Rhythm and Blues and true lovers of the authentic sounds that have made the history of the blues and definitely a band not to miss.

    “ Best Guitarist of 2018: Marco Cinelli... One of the very best blues outfits you’ll hear in decades... The Cinelli Brothers: Destined For Blues Stardom...” Music Republic Magazine

    “ They are superb musicians. I look forward to working with them again.” Billy Branch

    A Band Called Malice was formed when frontman Andy Coultas decided to create a new band. A band to recreate the sound of The Jam with the attitude and feel of the original line up. Finding musicians to do this was not an easy task as the people in the band had to be of exceptional standard, able to sing, able to commit, love The Jam, and of course be fit and agile enough to reproduce the live performance of Weller, Foxton and Buckler.

    Andy turned to Jo Adams from Their music rocks promotional agency and the search was on. So after a year of auditions and rehearsals, trying different people, some who were good contenders but unable to commit and some others who for one reason or another unsuitable we finally settled on this superb line up we have today. The current band members are spread from around the Midlands so rehearsal time was precious but everyone did their homework and kept any wasted time to a minimum, meeting at Warren's professional rehearsal rooms in Leicester, all the band needed now was to gel and work well together live, but thankfully because all three members were so experienced, the band were up and running in a flash.

    Read the biographies of each band member to see the standard of professionalism and then come see the band live to witness a show which will take you back to the late seventies and early eighties when The Jam played as one of the most iconic and influential bands in music history. If you like The Jam then you will love A Band Called Malice and guaranteed to have an unforgettable evening for the right reasons!

    Sinnerboy, from North West England, are the No. 1 tribute to Rory Gallagher and have a huge reputation for faithfully recapturing the sound and excitement of a live “Rory gig”. They have played a major role in promoting the revival of Rory’s music for the last eighteen years and apart from gigging extensively in the UK and Ireland, have headlined Rory Gallagher tribute events in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Spain, Norway and the USA.

    Playing live is what Sinnerboy do best. Anyone who has seen them will tell you, it's all about energy and passion, strong songs played with verve. But how else could you approach playing Rory's music?

    Their repertoire feature songs from every stage of Rory's career including his early days with Taste. Bullfrog Blues, Walk On Hot Coals, Tattooed Lady, Shadow Play, Moonchild and many more are the essential ingredients of every Sinnerboy set.

    For Sinnerboy, keeping the music of Rory Gallagher alive for people who love to hear it, is all that matters, but don't look for three guys on stage poncing about in wigs trying to look like three other guys, what you get with this band is all out passionate Rory Gallagher music!

    Rory Gallagher, who sadly passed away in 1995, had a huge impact on the world of blues and rock and is recognized as Irelands first real ”rock star” - blazing the trail for many major Irish acts to follow on the international stage.

    Apart from his reputation as one of the greatest ever exponents of the electric guitar, Rory left behind an enduring musical legacy which has received fresh recognition and attracted a whole new generation of younger fans over recent years. He was a prolific composer and in his lifetime recorded no fewer than fifteen albums of highly original and soulful blues and rock material.

    On the first anniversary of Rory’s sad passing Barry Barnes promoted the first ever tribute concert to his lifelong hero, then in 2000 Barry went on to form ‘Sinnerboy’ with the sole intention of keeping Rory’s memory alive.

    Rotary Rocks is delighted to present The Acoustic Strawbs.

    The legendary Strawbs will make their first appearance in Aylesbury as part of their 50 years tour - a special concert organised by Rotary Rocks to celebrate the 40th anniversary year of The Queens Park Arts Centre.
    The Strawbs started life as the Strawberry Hill Boys before emerging into the mainstream from the British folk movement of the mid 60s. Their first album with Sandy Denny attracted the attention of A&M Records in America and they became the first British band to be signed by the famous label.

    Major chart success followed with seven consecutive albums in the Billboard charts, including classics ‘Bursting at the Seams’, ‘Grave New World’, ‘Hero & Heroine’, ‘Dragonfly’ and ‘Ghosts’, earning the band two Gold Albums along the way. Album sales and massive coast-to-coast American tours, sharing the stage with The Eagles, Santana and Frank Zappa established the Strawbs as Britain’s most successful international progressive folk-rock band.

    The Acoustic Strawbs of the 21st century consist of the founder, constant guiding force, originator and lead vocalist Dave Cousins, described by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best Dylan influenced songwriter to come out of the UK. Alongside him longtime band members lead guitarist Dave Lambert and the astonishingly versatile Chas Cronk, who together formed the front line of the classic 1970s Strawbs.

    "Never to rest on their laurels, this excellent band continues to produce classic tracks and spectacular live performances". (Q Magazine)

    "Dave Cousins shows himself as a brilliant and original songwriter." (Classic Rock)

    All proceeds from this event to the Queens Park Arts Centre as part of its 40th Anniversary celebrations.
