Act one , Maxwell Avenue
Maxwell Avenue is a Pop Rock band which formed in Derby when lead vocalist and guitarist Ben Woodward (19) started scouting for musicians online through joinmyband.co.uk. After finding bassist Jake ‘McCarthy’ Mansbridge (25) and drummer Sam Warrington (18) online we formed Maxwell Avenue with the most recent addition of guitarist and vocalist Tom Wilkinson. Ben Woodward and Tom Wilkinson (20) had been friends for many years prior to forming the band, they were both part of a number of musical projects in Tamworth over the years. Maxwell Avenue has been together since the 25th February 2017 and will celebrate their one year anniversary with the release of their up coming album ‘Oh Violet’ which will be released in 2 volumes. Jake ‘McCarthy’ Mansbridge who lives in Burton Upon Trent studied at the University of Derby but graduated a number of years before Ben enrolled at the University to study BA (Hons) Popular Music with Music Technology, Jake was the first member of Maxwell Avenue to respond to Ben’s advert on Joinmyband.co.uk. With the later addition of drummer Sam Warrington who lives and studies in Nottingham, studying Music at the Nottingham Trent University
Maxwell Avenue’s upcoming album ‘Oh Violet! Volume 1’ will be released on the 8th March 2018 featuring the first half of the new songs written by Maxwell Avenue. ‘Oh Violet! Volume 2’ will be released later in the year…

AWARD WINNING TRIBUTE ARTIST VICKY JACKSON PRESENTS HER PINK TRIBUTE SHOW
Vicky Jackson’s Tribute to Pink has been a run-away success and has consistently been her most booked act since 2008. Whilst the Pink Tribute show was not her first tribute act, Vicky found herself being compared both physically and vocally when performing Pink songs during her solo shows, so a tribute act to Pink seemed like a very natural step. It quickly became Vicky’s signature act.
A massive Pink fan herself, Vicky has regularly attended her UK concerts to search for inspiration for her tribute shows. She has worked closely with costume makers in order to replicate a range of costumes that not only keep her Pink Tribute Show bang up-to-date, but one that also gives audience members less familiar with Pink’s later work some ‘classic looks’ making the show accessible to everyone in the room. Cleverly edited medleys enable Vicky to pack such a huge back catalog into a high energy and engaging show.
With Pink’s career stretching back as far as 2000, her debut single (the R&B inspired ‘There You Go’) kicked off a back catalog that has so far given us over 30 hits (check Wikipedia if you don’t believe us!!). Her widespread appeal continues to grow today, with hit singles still being released off the late 2012 album ‘The Truth About Love’.
This massive range of material has been perfect for creating shows that appeal to a wide variety of audiences. Butlin’s have booked this Pink Tribute show for the last four years, where a family friendly version, complete with tactfully altered swearing consistently goes down a storm. Pink’s massive popularity with the LGBT demographic has meant that Vicky has built a huge following in this community, appearing at many Gay Pride show’s across the UK and into Europe. Her loyal, dedicated and mobile fan base and strong social media presence ensures she regularly packs out gay friendly venues and has lead to her winning the Midland Zone Magazine’s ‘Best Cabaret Award’ by a public vote three years in a row.
Act four Ska Britannia
Ska music is all about looking cool and having a fantastic time! Ska Britannia have perfected doing both things, and then some. This fantastic 6 piece Ska tribute band really get into the swing of their show and so will you.
Who can resist getting up for a skank (Ska dance) and a sing a long when the first few notes of ‘One Step Beyond’ start up? This live band are skilful musicians and the Ska essential saxophone is simply fantastic, performing hits from Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat, The Jam, UB40, The Kings Men, Dave and Ansell Collins, to name but a few.
It’s obvious from watching Ska Britannia perform their set that they take great delight in what they do, their authentic costumes, pork pie hats and dance moves are live entertainment at its utmost!
