Open Mic Goodness returns today at the Noels Arms hosted by Archie Pearson. A house drum kit is now available on the night along with full PA.

The Stumble Brothers roll into town on Friday at the Genny B. They are a blues/rock band that have been performing for 20 years and their repertoire ranges from BB King to Jimi Hendrix.

Also on Friday, DJ Roach Tyler from Stokie’s Pure Blues will be playing the finest cuts of music, served on a platter of amazing dances. Anyone who loves blues, modern and jive will love this.

The Rooters will be rocking the Genny B on Saturday. They will deliver a varied musical classic rock palette from Iron Maiden, Thunder, Extreme and Black Sabbath.

Look out for Malaya Blue and her band at the Noels on Saturday. Malaya is undoubtedly the major breakthrough artist on the UK blues circuit this year. She was heavily tipped to do just that following her storming sets at The Great British Rock & Blues Festival at Skegness in January.

Nigel Baker will be rocking the Grapes on Saturday. He will be singing the afternoon away with hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s as well as some sounds from the present.

The Fentones are an exciting, up-beat function and party band who will be performing at The Saddle in Twyford on Saturday.

Sunday sees Archie’s Blues Jam Session at the Noels (4-7pm).

Also on Sunday, Martin Turner, bass player and songwriter with Wishbone Ash, will be playing a one-off acoustic show with his band at The Saddle, Twyford.

Oak, a Nottingham based classic rock covers band, will play at the Grapes on Sunday. Their hits include songs from Black Sabbath to lesser known bands such as Atomic Rooster.

With an afternoon of fun and Pirateitude (pirate with attitude), the Crown is hosting a bank holiday Monday party. This includes pirate themed fancy dress, barbecue and disco and the popular band Red Lips who played with George Simpson at his album launch at Melton Theatre.
