Well known all over the World, Foreigner and Journey are giants of the genre best known as Adult Orientated Rock and have been huge draws as live acts since forming in the 1970’s.
The two bands have achieved massive commercial and critical success and both sold in excess of 80 million albums, their supreme musical quality meaning that they’ve never been victims of trends or passing fashions. Sadly for those in the UK, their shows over here have been few and far between,
Thankfully the next best thing is here A FOREIGNERS JOURNEY
The band have toured throughout the UK and Europe for the last 6 years and headlined a number of festivals, safely establishing themselves as one of the most respected and know tribute shows around.
Cherry picking the very best songs from each of the two bands, bonafide rock classics such as (the massive) ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, ‘Separate Ways’, ‘Cold As Ice’, ‘Juke Box Hero’ Waiting For A Girl Like You and ‘I Want To Know What Love Is, plus many more..
A Foreigners Journey take things much beyond a mere ‘tribute act’ and turn their show into a living, breathing and powerful show. Guaranteed to be an evening to remember and real treat for all those who love quality, commercial rock.
Warner E. Hodges was a pioneer of the Alternative Country and Roots genres blazing a trail through the early 80s and onwards for the likes of The Georgia Satellites, The Long Ryders, Steve Earle, Webb Wilder and many others. His blistering guitar playing and 'whirling dervish' stage antics make his shows something to behold.
JCM is a recently formed splinter group of the band Colosseum, which was founded in 1968 by drummer Jon Hiseman and was one of the first bands to fuse jazz, rock and blues.
Jon Hiseman died in the early hours of Tuesday, 12th June 2018 in Sutton, England aged 73.
Extract from rock music critic and author Chris Welch’s Tribute to Jon Hiseman:
In the last year of his life, Jon Hiseman formed JCM, a trio with the Colosseum members Clem Clempson, on guitar, and Mark Clarke, on bass. The group made an album, “Heroes,” that contained music written by former collaborators Hiseman had outlived, among them Jack Bruce, Allan Holdsworth, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Graham Bond and Ollie Halsall. Ironically, the album will become a tribute to Hiseman himself.
JCM began a tour in April 2018, but cancelled it as the brain tumour advanced. Clem and Mark would like to announce that in alignment with Jon’s wishes, JCM is movin’ on with Ralph Salmins on the drums.
Man are a rock band from South Wales whose style is a mixture of West Coast psychedelia, progressive rock, blues and country-rock. Formed in 1968 as a reincarnation of Welsh rock harmony group 'The Bystanders', Man are renowned for the extended jams in their live performances.
Prolific would be an understatement as Man have 409 releases on 71 labels, in 24 countries under their belt at the last count in Feb 2010. Man are one of the most hardworking progressive bands in Brittan having toured year in year out since the late 60s except for a short break between '78 and '83. The band are very popular in progressive circles having played many shows with the likes of Hawkwind, IQ and occasionally with Marillion.
John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage.
His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!
BARRY BARNES and SINNERBOY are more than just a tribute to Irish music legend Rory Gallagher. They are the very essence of Rory’s sound, passion, talent and dedication to his craft – a performance that must be seen.

With the John Jorgenson Electric Band, guitar fans will have the rare opportunity to hear master guitarist John Jorgenson play electric guitar with an incredible rhythm section that easily moves between rock, blues, country, and many other styles. The international ensemble connects at every stylistic and dynamic turn as they move through material equally arranged yet free for a lot of exciting group improvisation, giving Jorgenson a solid platform to exhibit the virtuosity that earned him a GRAMMY Award in 2008, ACM Guitarist of the Year three consecutive times, inclusion in Guitarist Magazine’s “100 Guitar Heroes” and “100 Most Influential Guitarists,” and Guitar Player Magazine’s “Album of the Year” with the Hellecasters.
Jorgenson is well-known as a preeminent gypsy jazz guitarist, and bluegrass mandolinist, but it’s his eclectic electric guitar playing that is featured in a John Jorgenson Electric Band live performance. Audiences can expect some amazing tones and dazzling fretwork on Jorgenson’s signature Fender model guitars.
Joining Jorgenson in the John Jorgenson Electric Band configuration are three legendary musicians:

Hard driving, country flavoured classic rock'n'roll fronted by this legendary rhythm and blues guitarist/vocalist. Unique and timeless - the legend that is Steve Gibbons has withstood the fads and fashions of the music business for over four decades.

'Cool, voice perfect and handsomely road worn.' - Pete Townsend
"Rosenthal can draw you into his lyrics much the same way that James Taylor and Don Henley can".
"Take Jackson Browne’s personal confessions and wrap them in Kris Kristofferson’s world weary tales of broken relationships and you have an idea of what to expect from Tokyo Rosenthal."
"This is Americana with real teeth in the lyrics"
This and more is what the critics are saying about Tokyo Rosenthal. But it wasn’t an overnight trip. Hardly, as "Toke" has spanned the music scene for three decades. But it was in 2007 when recognition finally reached him through the recording of his CD, "One Score And Ten".The song "Edmonton" off this album led to Rosenthal receiving the key to the city of Edmonton as an award for cultural and artistic contributions to Alberta’s capitol city. This also led to a month long tour of Canada sponsored by West Jet Airlines, TV and Radio appearances, and an opening slot for several nights in Toronto for Rock n Roll Hall of Famer and former Byrd and Burrito Brother, Chris Hillman. Toke was personally picked by Chris to share the bill. He has also opened for the likes of America, Stephen Stills, Rick Roberts, Josh Williams, Jackie Leven, and Come On In My Kitchen, in addition to headlining shows. His recent festival work includes SXSW, The Edmonton Fringe Festival, The Carrboro Music Festival, Tyler’s Americana Festival, and the World Music United Festival.

Although NBH may be familiar as guitarist / vocalist with Alt. bluegrassers The Coal Porters, he also steps out as a solo act, performing original material in the roots/ Americana vein, but with a distinct brogue - some years ago the venerable Proclaimers convinced the young NBH that he should sing in a geographically non-specific Scots accent.
Canterbury prog-rockers, named after the book The Soft Machine by William S. Burroughs. Featuring three of the group's 70s era members: guitarist John Etheridge, drummer John Marshall and bass player Roy Babbington. They're joined by sax, flute and keyboard player Theo Travis.
Dave Kelly is known as Britain's finest blues slide guitarist, as well as being an excellent vocalist. He is joint lead singer in The Blues Band of which he was a founder member with Paul Jones.
Andy Fairweather Low & Low Riders Plus Hi Riders Soul Revue.
Classic rock Dutch-style as these unlikely 70s chart toppers ('Hocus Pocus' and 'Sylvia') reform to bring their virtuoso Hammonds, flutes and yodelling back to the stage. Still featuring founder member and Rock's only yodeller Thijs Van Leer and the world class drummer Pierre Van Der Linden,
