|2nd October||Paddy Maguire£4 on the door|
|Whilst still a teenager, Paddy Maguire was held in such high regard that, after jamming on stage with one of his heroes, guitar player Rory Gallagher, he was invited to join his first band. He & his band perform with a potent mixture of power & finesse, the guitarist regularly pulling the trigger & unleashing visceral, mesmerising solos. Paddy is influenced by greats such as Clapton, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, & in particular Stevie Ray Vaughan, to whom he is, understandably, probably most often compared.|

|As a guitarist Lewis pays tribute to some of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, taking influence from people like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix & Rory Gallagher. He also incorporates playing styles from more modern blues-rock musicians such as, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks & Matt Schofield.

|23rd October||Red Butler£5 on the door|
|Dynamic rock/blues band Red Butler is fast making a name for itself across Britain & Europe. Audiences instantly tap into the energy & passion generated by the young band from Brighton. Alex Butler channelled his burning desire for a full-time career in music by establishing the band in 2012. After some early changes, the line-up became Alex on guitar, Jane Pearce (vocals), Charlie Simpson (drums) & Mike Topp (bass). The youngsters developed their music by rocking the south of England pub circuit, but it was the ability to deliver music from the energetic rock end of the spectrum to passionate blues at the other, that won them fans much further afield. They won the UK Blues Challenge 2015 & represented the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Italy in 2016. Don't miss this one!!!|
|30th October||Swear Box£4 on the door|
|Swear Box feature a floating line-up of excellent musicians who all play with other well known artists. Jamie says "The art of making live music, jamming & performing seems to be a lost one. Backing tracks, computers & miming seem to have taken over from the true art of being a musician. With Swear Box you get the real deal - live performance the way it was meant to be done, by seasoned, exemplary musicians having fun & taking pride in their craft." Expect a mix of popular classic rock, bluesy rock & rocky blues, songs by the likes of Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana, Cream, Golden Earring, ZZ Top, Queen, Foreigner, Deep Purple & many more.|
