Tides Trio Band + Scarlet Estate + Finn Day
Jul 14 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Who’d have thought that a Blues Guitarist, Rhythmic Keys player and a Funk Drummer could come together to form a powerhouse of soul-driven grooves with a unique, combined style? ‘The Tides Trio’ express an exciting blend of blues, Soul and exhilaration to take you away on a on a wild ride of nostalgia.

After meeting at Leeds Conservatoire in September 2023, Dacey, George and Sam have written many songs with a range of influence and the lack of a permanent vocalist allows them to experiment in a range of genres. They are currently working on their debut album which will be released by the end of the year so watch this space!

Anyone can listen to The Tides Trio – a band for all.


With support from Scarlet Estate and Finn Day.

Mary Spender
Oct 3 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Combining her sultry voice and electric guitar to create rock songs infused with blues and soul, Mary Spender’s songwriting showcases her virtuosic style of guitar playing as well as her wide vocal range.

Mary has amassed over 79 million views on her YouTube channel with over 690k subscribers watching her weekly videos on life as a 21st century musician. Predominantly targeted towards guitarists and singer/songwriters, she both shares her own experiences and interviews prominent artists such as Cory Wong, Santana, KT Tunstall and James Valentine of Maroon 5. Mary has found an interactive community who are incredibly supportive of her work and allow her to release music as an independent artist – no label, no middlemen, just true fans.

In March 2021 Mary wrote, recorded and released John Mayer’s new track ‘Last Train Home’ before he did, responding to a snippet he released on Instagram. The video went viral and caught the attention of Mayer himself, who invited Mary to hear the finished track before anyone else.

In 2022 she released ‘Songbook Volumes 1 & 2’, a double album of new material funded by fans through Patreon.

A fully produced studio album of fan favourites, titled Super. Sexy. Heartbreak was released in October 2023.

The Alley Club Presents… 2 Tone – 45th Anniversary DJ Night
Oct 18 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

The Alley Club Presents… 2 Tone – 45th Anniversary DJ Night
WOW! Has it really been 45 years? Yes! And the 2 Tone Record label led the way in the late ’70’s Ska/Reggae Revival.
Come and celebrate the best genre of music there is! Enduring, easy to join in and dance to and FUN, 2 Tone music still leads the way!
(yes, the label was so influential to so many people, that it’s become known as a genre of music,
similar to Blue Beat, Tamla Motown and Stax/Atlantic).
DJs Sawty, Ska Bar Steve & Gonzo will be playing the best in ORIGINAL 2 Tone and Ska Revival on original. chunky and sometimes crackly vinyl, with an emphasis on Madness, The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat, Bad Manners, The Bodysnatchers and many, many more!
Also, expect sounds by associated bands such as UB40, The Equators and more!
This is the music that paved the way for a third wave of Ska (mixed with more Punk) popular in the USA and
many UK artists such as Amy Winehouse etc.

Don’t forget The Alley Club goes Mod (@ The Portland ofcourse!) on 8th Nov ’24 with the truly amazing, young Nottingham band Sharp Class. They could be bigger than The Jam!
