ALL OR NOTHING

EVENT PAGE AND TICKET LINK FOUND HERE

Following three sell-out tours and a successful West End run, the ALL OR NOTHING musical team have put together the ALL OR NOTHING THE EXPERIENCE, which offers a tantalising taste of the hit production. 

 

ALL OR NOTHING – THE EXPERIENCE, with book by Carol Harrison and music and lyrics by the Small Faces, is a classic rock and roll story of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent. They became the Small Facesand were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.  

 

In 1965, a new phenomenon erupted out of London’s East End.  It was the essence of all that was cool.  It was Mod.  ALL OR NOTHING follows the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues.  The ALL OR NOTHING EXPERIENCEconcert show, celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, including hits Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin SoldierLazy SundayItchycoo Parkand All or Nothing, as well as offering an extended set of soulful sounds from the 60s.

THURSDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER 7:30PM | TILL THE WHEELS PRESENTS MICAH SCHNABEL OF TWO COW GARAGE

Tickets can be found here.

An intimate evening of punk rock tinged country and folk, featuring Micah Schnabel, the frontman of acclaimed Midwestern country punk band, Two Cow Garage, travelling with his partner, Vanessa Jean Speckman, who will be showcasing her art. Supports from Dexy and James Hull.

Micah Schnabel
(Two Cow Garage Wikipedia)
The group was formed in September 2001 by the singer/guitarist Micah Schnabel (born in Bucyrus, Ohio) who began playing with the drummer Dustin Harigle in and around Columbus. Guitarist Chris Flint joined the group after seeing one of their early shows, and bass guitarist Shane Sweeney joined soon after. The group released its first album in 2002 and embarked on a near-constant nationwide U.S. tour, travelling over 300,000 miles.

Their second album, The Wall Against Our Back, came out in 2004 to considerable critical acclaim, and the group's tour was recorded by John Boston and released as a documentary, The Long Way Around: One Badass Year With Two Cow Garage.
A third album, III, was released in 2007 and followed by Speaking In Cursive in September 2008. Harigle left the band on tour in 2007; drummer Cody Smith and keyboard player Andy Schell joined for Speaking In Cursive, which was released on the Colorado-based Suburban Home Records label.
The band's fifth album, Sweet Saint Me, was released via Suburban Home Records on October 24, 2010. The Death Of The Self Preservation Society was released September 10, 2013. Production of the album was funded by fans via a campaign on Indiegogo that raised $16,840.
A subsequent Indiegogo campaign raised $9,196 after the band's van broke down.
In 2015, the band recruited Nashville, Tennessee-based guitarist/singer/songwriter Todd Farrell Jr. (of Benchmarks, Todd Farrell Jr. & the Dirty Birds) as a permanent lead guitarist for the band.
In 2015, the band found its own stolen touring equipment for sale on eBay.

In June 2016, it was announced that the band would be releasing their seventh album, titled "Brand New Flag", would be released via Last Chance Records in August 2016. The record was recorded and produced in Spring of 2016 in Kingston Springs, TN by guitarist Todd Farrell Jr., and mixed by Joey Kneiser (of rock band Glossary). On July 22, the band announced via their Facebook page that the original August 19 release date was pushed back to October 14.
In June 2017, guitarist Todd Farrell Jr. stepped away from the band in order to focus on his band, Benchmarks. Jay Gasper (Lydia Loveless) joined as a temporary fill-in guitarist for the remainder of their 2017 touring. Later that year, drummer David Murphy also left the band.
The band has built its following via energetic live shows and relentless touring, playing as many as 200 shows in a year.

Formed in 2004 by sisters Sam and Shelley Walker, Deborah Wildish joined later the same year. After five years as a trio, Laura Ozholl completed the line-up in 2009, helping JOANovARC to quickly solidify its reputation for exceptional musicianship, songwriting and unrelenting hard work. The band is already becoming a global phenomenon, with electrifying performances on tour in Europe, the USA, Japan, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean.

“Their sound is stylish, powerful and certainly has a direct lineage to Girlschool and Rock Goddess. In fact, there’s a strong case for saying that this quartet are the natural successors to those two bands.” Malcolm Dome – Classic Rock magazine.

“Best live band that I have seen in a long time!” Stuart Epps – Record producer for Led Zeppelin, Oasis, Elton John and Robbie Williams.

“That is incredible; those girls are so talented...” ‐ Lzzy Hale, Halestorm

The Roz Bruce Infusion

They mix wahwah/fuzz driven rock with punky overtones and distinctive vocals and produce a highly likeable and infectious sound.

"Lead-lady, Roz, is a formidable musician, playing her guitar like a female Hendrix (including briefly playing the instrument with her teeth), and yelping like Siouxsie (of the Banchees) at times. The rest of the band are darned good musicians too." - Gigjunkies

Bristol in Stereo magazine described a recent headline show as bringing “disproportionate and incredible energy from the moment they start their set of relentless thunder grunge.”

MOTÖRHEADACHE / FACEBOOK / WEBSITE /

A TOP CLASS AND AUTHENTIC TRIBUTE TO THE LATE, GREAT LEMMY KILMISTER AND HIS BAND, MOTÖRHEAD. MOTÖRHEADACHE IS A THREE PIECE TRIBUTE TO LEMMY'S MUSICAL CAREER WITH MOTÖRHEAD FROM 1975 TO 2015, BUT FEATURES SOME HIS SOLO PROJECTS WITH THE LIKES OF FOO FIGHTERS AND SLASH.

SET UP BY LIFELONG MOTÖRHEAD FAN ROB CAMPBELL ON RICKENBACKER BASS AND VOCAL, THE LINE-UP FEATURES AL LEACH ON GUITAR AND DAVE NUTTER ON DRUMS, WITH IAN HILL AS DEP GUITARIST AND GARRY 'MAGPIE' BOWLER ON DRUMS.

MOTÖRHEADACHE HAS PREVIOUSLY TOURED THE UK EXTENSIVELY, PLAYING OVER 700 VENUES AS WELL AS GIGS IN GERMANY, HOLLAND AND BELGIUM.

THE MAIN BODY OF THE MOTÖRHEADACHE’S SET LIST COMPRISES A LARGE NUMBER OF SONGS FROM MOTÖRHEAD’S FAST EDDIE CLARKE ERA, REGARDED BY MANY MOTÖRHEADBANGERS AS THE CLASSIC ERA FROM 1975 TO 1982. SONGS INCLUDE “ACE OF SPADES”, “BOMBER”, “OVERKILL”, “IRON FIST”, “THE HAMMER”, “THE CHASE IS BETTER THAN THE CATCH” AND, OF COURSE, THE BOMBASTIC “MOTÖRHEAD” - THE LAST OF LEMMY’S SONGS FOR HAWKWIND AND THE ONE THAT GAVE HIS NEW BAND ITS NAME. MOTÖRHEADACHE IS PROUD TO HELP KEEP ALIVE THE MUSIC OF MOTÖRHEAD BY PLAYING GIGS ALL OVER THE UK AND INVITING MOTÖRHEADBANGERS TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND WORK OF A ROCK ICON AND LEGEND, MR LEMMY KILMISTER.
