John Illsley and new band
Venue: The Stables Stockwell Lane Wavendon Milton Keynes MK17 8LU
Date: Tue 31st Oct 2017
Time: 8:00 pm
Cost: £21.50 + booking fee

When you’ve been a member of one of the biggest bands in the world it might be thought reasonable to retire to the country, dip in the pool, smash a few holes in one and admire the fleet of classic cars you have doubtless acquired.

But John Illsley is no such slouch. Though he’s an accomplished artist, he’s first and foremost a musician, it runs through and through, so it’s no surprise to find him out and about with a brand new band.

True, John was in one of the biggest bands ever to enjoy stratospheric success. As a founder member of Dire Straits he had a remarkable musical journey - along with Mark Knopfler he was there for the whole ride.

To say Dire Straits were successful is a bit like saying zebras are rather stripey. They sold over 120 million albums, picked up a few Grammies on the way, a clutch of Brit Awards, a couple of MTV music video accolades and an Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. Their 1985 album Brothers In Arms was the first to sell over a million copies in CD format and the band spent a staggering 1,100+ weeks on the UK album charts.

In short, Dire Straits’ reach was massive and their sound instantly recognisable due, in no small part, to John’s distinctive bass riffs and general musical input.

When the band finally disbanded in 1995 solo careers were on the cards - John took time out then went back into the studio.

Now, two decades later and with six solo albums under his belt, John hits the road with a brand new band. Excitingly it features some of the best players in the business.

John Illsley’s first tour in over four years, and the first with this line-up, the new shows avow full-on musical nights of the highest calibre.

Showcasing John’s 2016 album, “Long Shadows”, the band promise to draw on many of the much loved Dire Straits’ hits - Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Brothers in Arms – as well as the gamut of solo material.

As the man himself says “The new songs fit very comfortably next to the Dire Straits’ classics. We keep the essential feel of those songs but this isn’t a tribute act, I think we bring them alive in a new and fresh way. We certainly love playing them and people seem to enjoy listening so it’s great fun all round.”

“This is the most exciting new line-up I’ve been in and I’m loving every minute of it, Robbie McIntosh and Paul Stacey are two quite exceptional guitar players.”

Indeed, all the band have a stirling pedigree. While Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones) and Paul Stacey (Oasis, The Black Crowes, High Flying Birds) cut fine figures on the guitar the other three members stake their claim too.

Steve Smith takes on keyboards (Robert Plant, Pete Townsend, Steve Harley), Stuart Ross presides over drums (Mark Owen, Nik Kershaw, Chesney Hawkes), and Jess Greenfield ably provides backing vocals (Rod Stewart, Take That, Noel Gallagher).

Given the talent involved, to say that the Autumn dates should prove a harvest of delights would clearly be leaving the lily ungilded. With songs from the present, the past and even some from the band, the evening will be awash with good music.

A hugely enjoyable night – on every level.

Charlie Landsborough
Venue: The Stables Theatre Stockwell Lane Wavendon Milton Keynes MK17 8LU
Date: Fri 10th Nov 2017
Time: 8:00 pm
Cost: £28 + booking fee

You may think, if you’ve heard a song or two, that you know what Charlie Landsborough is all about.

You may even have him down as only a Country artist (he has won every UK Country Music Award going after all)...but think again.

You need to see him perform to get the full picture. His voice is true, his music melodic, his musicianship is superb and his story telling funny. He performs with a band whose talents are unquestionable and he always delivers a memorable show.

Charlie Landsborough is a man of many colours....whether playing lyrical Americana, upbeat rock or country-tinged emotive ballads, he’s won fans right across the globe. He regularly plays in places as far apart as Ireland and Australia. Indeed he heads back to Australia again in May 2018.

Over the years Charlie has released some 28 albums and a plethora of singles. He’s recorded his own tribute to the Beatles (fellow Northerners) titled ‘Here There and Everywhere’ and his show always includes a few of their tracks as well as his own original material. Much loved Charlie favourites are in the set too and he’s even performed with local choirs, part of various competitions he’s set up in local areas.

His last release was a live 26 track double CD from the Liverpool Philharmonic, ‘Live From Philharmonic’, released on Lana Records. Now, as a new enterprise, many of the backing tracks have been made available via download from his revamped web site www.charlielandsborough.com . Meanwhile a new CD is in the pipeline.

This Autumn Charlie and his band take to the road again to play a series of major shows across the UK. Kicking off on 19th October, the dates run through to mid November.

The dates promise to be exceptional evenings of music, good humour and inspirational playing. One thing’s for sure, Charlie Landsborough always delivers.
