Victor Brox & Band: A real live blues legend, having worked with all the greats and recipient in 2014 of a Lifetime Achievement Award  from The British Blues Awards

Tony Auton Band: Tony is probably Manchester’s most popular & prolific singer/songwriter having played with people like Chris Farlowe, Wilko Johnson, Joe Bonamassa etc and he covers styles ranging through rock, punk, folk & blues.

Lol Goodman Band: In their three years of regular gigging they have carved a niche as one of the North’s best, hardest working original blues/rock bands.  Two critically acclaimed albums to their name and appearances this year on main stages at major blues festivals: The Riverside Stage at Upton Blues Festival, headlining the British Stage, the Great British RnB Festival in Colne and prime Saturday night slot at Stafford Blues Festival.

Nick Dow & Pete Benbow: Acoustic blues form two guys who have a deep love and understanding of traditional blues.  Nick presents long running blues show Lancashire Bluenotes on BBC Radio Lancashire every Sunday evening.

Asher & Ben: Young guys who play rock acoustic covers just a bit differently.  They are both studying sound engineering in Manchester and hope to make music a career.
