The Roustabouts offer a musical cabaret experience that will amuse, bemuse and amaze. Performing a theatrical mixture of Gypsy / Balkan, folk, dance and swing influenced original songs and arrangements. Expect rich harmonies, fast paced strumming, groovy bass lines, banging beats, virtuosic fiddle work, knees-up squeezebox merriment, a bombastic trombone, hair raising electric solos and a big slice of circus to top it all off.
Stone Mountain Sinners
Neil Ivison, Sarah Warren, Nick Lyndon. Roger Roberts, Adam Hood and Duke Delight. With the songs now road tested and itching to keep things moving, the band have booked themselves into the legendary Rockfield Studios in Monmouth with producer Paul Cobbold (The Waterboys, Pogues, Hawkwind) in January 2018 to record their debut album. 2018 will see the official debut of Stone Mountain Sinners as well as national tour dates to promote their first release.

4 Men Called Bob
Formed in 2002, ‘4 Men Called Bob’ are a 3 piece band,(no ones called Bob and there are only 3 of us, don't ask), playing American West Coast Rhythm & Blues/ Rock covers plus original material, including versions of songs not necessarily designed to be played that way!
From a young age, the stage has been a place I have always felt most comfortable. In my career, I have performed at many festivals and local events such as Applefest and the Mistletoe Festival, as well as working as a freelance singer at weddings and other celebratory events. From 2013- 2016 I performed in the local pantomime as the head dancer, to begin with, and later on as main roles. Next year I hope to be moving to Birmingham to complete my Level 3 extended diploma course at BOA to pursue my career in musical theatre and performing arts. Returning to Tenbury to perform at local events and festivals, however, is something I feel strongly about continuing as, without the small building blocks of opportunity the town has given me, I would not be in the same position I am lucky enough to be into this day
Alphabet Backwards’ ethos is simple: To champion the noble art of Pop music, dancing all the way. It’s infectious and puts a smile on your face. It’s a summery, joyous, happy-go-lucky affair, punctuated with an irresistible synth buzz and hooks aplenty. After all, Pop is not a dirty word. The band grew around the songwriting of James Hitchman until he recruited the people he enjoyed playing music with. Josh and Paul had played in previous bands with him, so there were no problems on that front. Bob Tom was pretty easy to find too, he was working as a church organist just down the road from Josh and his sister was finally enlisted after James heard her singing in the shower.
Joncan Kavlakoglu — commonly described as ‘James Brown meets Rodrigo y Gabriela on an acoustic guitar’, his highly energetic performance style and his appreciation for a spectrum of musical styles push an audience's expectations of what an acoustic guitar can do. Appearing twice on BBC1 shows ‘The One Show’ and ‘Inside Out’ in 2017, Sky Art's Guitar Star in 2016 performing to George Benson, and having played around Europe and Turkey with performances in India planned for early 2018, Joncan captivates anywhere he performs

The Arosa is a rising four-piece Alternative Indie band, formed in the Midlands. With a strong electric pulse to all their tunes, and a wide variety of Brit Pop and Indie influences, their music has something for everyone, and that's before they hit the stage!

Plus, that's not all as the band are set to head out on a five-day nationwide tour in 2018, performing in Wrexham, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and London.
