Rock folk band Flint Moore don’t believe in doing music by halves – it must be ferocious and raw, or delicate and emotional. When people try and describe their sound, they reach for many different names – from Pearl Jam to Mumford and Sons, Audioslave to Dave Matthews Band. Whatever their choice, it always speaks volumes of Flint Moore’s powerful and honest performances.
Flint Moore is grassroots in their attitude and grounded in their worldview. They believe music is best experienced when everyone in the room feels fully connected. If you’ve seen them before, it’s never been like this; if you haven’t, this is the time.

*This is a rescheduled show from 20th Sept 2020, tickets already purchased are valid for this new date*
The GUN “Up Close & Personal” UK Tour originally due to take place in April & May this year, but moved to a September 20th start is being moved back to next year due to the ongoing issues with public events and the coronavirus pandemic.
Gun’s Dante Gizzi “We are obviously very sorry for the rescheduling again of the UK dates, but as everyone knows it’s beyond anyone’s control at this point and although earlier in the year we felt September this year would be a feasible option for welcoming back live shows, this has clearly not been the case. We ask everyone to hold on to the tickets already purchased and we will see you back in the Autumn of 2021”
GUN UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL, LIVE AT THE PORTLAND ARMS, CAMBRIDGE
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS, THE OUTLAW ORCHESTRA
MONDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2021

This is a rescheduled show from 28th May 2020 and 4th Feb 2021. Tickets purchased for either of those shows are valid for this one.
Limehouse Lizzy 2021 Tour
Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.
From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy have just completed their 26th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.
Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they start 2020 with a string European tour dates, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!
‘…Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS for Music’s Hardest Working UK Bands List’
“Limehouse Lizzy’s Wayne Ellis, an uncanny ringer for Phil Lynott…”
“entertainment for more than a decade…fantastic live music”
“if you’re sceptical about tribute acts, you won’t be after seeing Limehouse Lizzy”
“Gig of the week”
With their 2017 debut album “Live For The Moment”, Sheffield quartet The Sherlocks established themselves as key contenders in a new wave of British bands keeping alt-rock and indie vital for a new generation of fans. The album fired into the charts at #6 as the band inspired devotion wherever they went, from shows with Liam Gallagher, an international array of festival dates to rapturously received shows in Japan.
While “Live For The Moment” remains a scintillating insight into the hedonism and heartbreak of youth, “Under Your Sky” finds frontman Kiaran Crook writing songs which bridge the exuberance of youth with the reflection and maturity of young adulthood.
That approach – worldly songs with one eye cast homeward – is perfectly demonstrated in the album’s lead single “NYC (Sing It Loud)”, which received its exclusive first play courtesy of Annie Mac at Radio 1. “I wanna see the world with you,” Kiaran sings, imagining “getting lost in the city for a day” with someone left behind.
Jack J Hutchinson is a London based guitarist and singer songwriter. Described by Classic Rock Magazine as “Southern-smoked blues-rock with hooks, choruses, the lot”, his most recent album ‘Who Feeds The Wolf?‘ reached #1 in the Amazon Blues Chart and the iTunes Blues Chart Top 5.
Born in Leicester, Hutchinson spent his formative years in Burnley in the north west before moving to London to be an artist and musician. To date, he has released two solo albums, including 2017’s critically acclaimed ‘Paint No Fiction‘.
He has toured internationally, including shows in Brazil, Spain, Russia, France, Germany. He has also played various high profile festivals, including BluesFest at the O2 alongside Bad Company and Ramblin’ Man Fair, where he shared the bill with ZZ Top, Rival Sons and Blackberry Smoke. Support slots have included Monster Truck and Kris Barras Band.
What the press have been saying…
“Tough, immediate and rockin’. Hutchinson was born to sing soul and blues.” (Classic Rock Magazine)
“Growling vocals combine with raunch ‘n’ roll acoustic and electric guitars. It’s a heck of a debut and definitely a name to watch out for.” (Guitarist Magazine)
“One of the strongest debuts from a British artist this year.” (Planet Rock)

Go to any gig and you get the acoustic opener, the big main band and the afterparty DJ. Fuse them together and you’re starting to get close to Funke and the Two Tone Baby. A one-man phenomenon that mixes folky singalong anthems with blistering blues riffs, juxtaposed with fat bass, big beats and sub kicks. A frenzied amalgamation of organic and electronic that defies all preconception.
Born from festivals and knocking on the door of 1000 shows, F&TTTB has wowed audiences from Glastonbury to Sziget, WOMAD to Boomtown and Alexandra Palace to a Bahraini Princes’ private studio.
He has also secured support tours and shows with Skinny Lister, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, Comet is Coming, Beans on Toast, Hazel O’ Connor, Ferocious Dog, Hayseed Dixie, Mark Chadwick (Levellers) and many more.
A lo-fi peach with orchestral depth, a DJ without decks and a blur to the eyes, Funke generates huge sounds from seemingly nothing and sweeps up audiences in an awestruck wave of power, energy and sweat. A truly unique act that needs to be seen to be believed.
“One of the best new live bands in the country, it’s a matter of time before they explode onto the big stages” This Feeling
There’s something about this type of music that feels raw, Southern, and whiskey-soaked. I can’t get enough Indie Shuffle.
The arrangement of James Tranter’s dominant, layered guitar work, Danny Core’s strong and unique vocals, Luke Davis’s muddy harmonic bass playing and James Dudley’s drumming groove are the framework of a band that’s enchanting and irresistible.
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult
