Live Band : Swear Box


THE REAL DEAL – 100% LIVE ROCK
COVERS BAND!

**SATURDAY 27TH JULY 2019**

Jamie Mallender is a professional musician from Sheffield (UK.) He has performed with numerous name artists, including Tony Martin – the former Black Sabbath vocalist, and has toured the world
extensively in this capacity, playing to as many as 15,000 fans at Arena shows. Jamie has performed with members of Argent, The Kinks, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, The UK Subs, Venom, Saxon, Bad Company The Quireboys, Steely Dan and Dave Berry.

He plays bass for Paddy Maguire and for The John Verity Band plays sessions, has his own music teaching business called The Academy Of Rock and has released solo recordings, such as the “Tunes From The Mothership” EP and bass oriented instrumental album “Return To Bass.”

Jamie now uses his “Starbug Studios” for select commercial
recordings as well as for his own material and recording his
students. He is currently writing and recording for various projects, some of it solo material, some collaborative and some in a session capacity.

Swear Box began when Jamie threw together a band to fill in for a cancellation at one of his local pubs. The band performed so well that no-one believed it was not a rehearsed band and so Jamie
continued to book gigs, using a pool of 1st class players he has worked with in previous bands.

The art of making live music, jamming and performing seems to be a lost one. Backing tracks, computers and 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.

A few examples of artists covered: Jimi Hendrix, Creame, Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gary Moore, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Queen, Eagles, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi, The Kinks, Deep Purple, Whitesnake and many more…

Live Band : 3 Legged Cat


CLASSIC ROCK COVERS BAND!

**SATURDAY 24TH AUGUST 2019**

LIVE AT THE DUSTY MILLER!

3 Legged Cat are a classic rock covers band who have gathered a
loyal following from gigs all over the midlands. Playing a selection of great songs from the classic era of 70s hard rock, 3 Legged Cat are a band who grew up up listening to the music they now love
to play.

3 Legged Cat were formed in 1997 by 4 people who all worked at the Post Office in Chesterfield. Originally comprising Paul Chisnell (drums), Adrian Hall (guitar & vocals), Andy Holleran (guitar &
vocals) and Adam the original bass player who was replaced by Mick Hodgetts in 1999. This line up played many shows over the years
before the first line up change when Tony Penny joined
on drums.

Rob Young joined on lead vocals in 2009 and a year later Jamie Thackeray joined on drums. This line up continued until Mick
Hodgetts left to be replaced by Steve Taylor on bass in early 2014.

Andy Holleran remains the link to the original idea which started all those years ago and the original concept of classic songs from the 70s continues although a few early 80s songs have also crept into the set. 3 Legged Cat play a set of material they would love to watch a band play if they were in the audience with a beer or two, playing the songs that the whole band grew up on and which
continue as great songs to this day!

Band Members
Rob Young – Lead vocals & guitar
Andy Holleran – Lead guitar & vocals
Steve Gent – Bass
Andy Bishop – Drums
