The Mosquitos

Lounge Friday 25th August

Entry is free for members, £2 for guests


traxion

The Mosquitos are unique in British R ‘n’ B. Made up from a pool of musicians, The Mosquitos transcend the standard R ‘n’ B format, pushing the boundaries of what they play to new, and dare I say exciting, heights of musicianship and musical enjoyment. This approach has not always been popular with serious R ‘n’ B fans and because of this The Mosquitos have always drawn from a wider audience of music fans.

The idea for the band was Nick Rowbotham’s, back in 1978. The original concept, which still works today, was to use musicians of various musical backgrounds and experience to work with original material and classic R ‘n’ B tunes. Based around Nick’s vocals and harmonica, a selection of musicians will be put together based on who is available at the time, for example, Nick Rowbotham, guitarists Steve Aaron and Steve Walwyn from traditional R ‘n’ B, with bass player Horace Panter from ska/2-Tone and drummer Rick Medlock from a jazz funk and experimental background. This gives an edge to the music that most bands will never achieve. An alternative line-up might include blues/rock guitarist Baz Eardley and fiddle player Martin Bell whose roots lie in electric folk. Rehearsals are kept to a minimum which also adds to the excitement of the music played.

The Mosquitos started gigging again in 2011. Once a year, when Nick returns from his home in Thailand, the call goes out to see who is available. The first year the Mosquitos performed for a month, the next year two months and in 2014 it’s certainly three months, and possibly four, as the gigs pour in. Locally they have started to generate huge interest which is starting to spread to a wider area and fan base. So come and join the malarky that is The Mosquitos! for a full bio please visit

The Little Red Corbetts

Lounge Friday 15th September 2017

Entry is free for members, £2 for guests


mosquitos

From pop to rock ’And pretty much everything in-between’, The Little Red Corbetts are a group of 4 highly experienced musicians, who have been around the music scene for more years than they care to admit. Their motto is ‘It’s all about our audience’ - whether it’s music from years gone by that everyone remembers, a slow ballad for the romantics, a slice of Rock ‘n’ Roll to get the dancers on their feet, or a harmony piece to simply listen to or sing along with - ‘It’s about catering for all tastes and putting a smile on peoples faces’.


The Ant Hill Mob

Lounge Saturday 22nd September

Entry is free for members and £2 for guests


grooveworx

The Ant Hill Mob are a five-piece rock band from the Midlands (Coventry, Leamington Spa, Redditch and Bidford-Upon-Avon) and we have risen in 2017 from a long-established rock band called Cave. Whereas Cave played standard classics, with a heavier rock edge, The Ant Hill Mob play a set of songs that everyone will know but that are rarely, if ever, heard on the circuit, either due to the complex vocal harmonies or the fact that the songs are more difficult to work out and play.

With this in mind, we have enjoyed the challenge of deliberately choosing more complex songs and always look forward to playing them, to the delight of the audience. The set is ever evolving, so will always stay fresh.
