ELVIS REMEMBERED WITH PAUL MOLLOY

Paul Molloy has become one of the best tributes to Elvis in the world and one of the most well known names in the world of Tribute entertainers today.

Earning his apprenticeship in the pubs and clubs in the north of England before progressing on to TV and radio, Paul can now be found touring the theatre in not only his own Elvis tribute show, but in some of the finest touring shows around.

The closeness to Elvis's voice has been the main reason for such a successful career and many of the king's entourage who he has had the great pleasure of working with have commented on this.

Performing any era of Elvis has also been a key factor in the success of his show, 50's Early Years, Movie Elvis, 68 Comeback or Vegas Elvis of the 70's. Paul is at home performing any style or song of the king and takes great pride in delivering a performance Elvis would have been proud of.

Awards including European Champion and Best Gospel have firmly established his name in the ETA business and long may it continue

MAMA - TRIBUTE TO GENESIS

MAMA is a copy, or tribute, band playing the music of British supergroup Genesis and some pieces by former members. The band is based in the UK and currently plays 20-25 shows a year at venues across the country.

Four of the five band members are based in the North West England area, the fifth lives in Suffolk!. We are led by front man and lead vocalist John Wilkinson, highly acclaimed for his ability to deliver on the Phil Collins vocal sound of Genesis with power, passion and total precision. On keyboards, the band benefits from the technical wizardry of John Comish. Stunning guitars are provided by Mark Comish, backed up with the rock solid technical playing of James Cooper on drums and Dave Perry on bass.

Our philosophy is very simple…we are not trying to BE Genesis..we are just five part time musician Genesis fans, aided and abetted by helper fans (more of you would be very welcome!) and a loyal crew, playing for other fans…”Simples!”

We are coming up on 2 years old as we go in to 2014 and have some great venues lined up for this year, so if you are a Genesis/Collins/Gabriel/Hackett/Rutherford/Banks etc fan or only have a passing interest in their music don’t get hung up on the tribute thing…just come along, catch one of us for a chat and have a good time!

The Virgin Vampire – Rock Musical

An all new British Musical, The Virgin Vampire promises to be is a foot tapping visual spectacular, with original music and lyrics. Audience participation is more than encouraged, it’s essential. The strong costume theme of black leather and chrome, with fetish overtones will blend in nicely with the Halloween ideal of costume extravaganza. This too is another way in which you the audience can participate, come along dressed as your favorite alter ego, Vampire or fetish.

There will also be someone that you can identify with from the family of characters, be it Nick the satanic S&M night club owner, Alan the orphan son of an East European Count, even Jane the vicar’s daughter who is new to the village, plus many more engaging personalities.

Can the eternal battle between good and evil be swayed by the power of love, in this light hearted and humorous rite of passage “Love Story” The journey moves from the righteous overtones of the Gospel choir in the village church to explorations into the dark side of Fetish Fantasy, Vampirism and possibly Satanic Worship.

Following the ancient war between humans and vampires the vampire survivors went underground, living like bats, only surfacing at night, hiding until the day comes when they can rise up against the humans and once more rule the world.   But they will need a special Vampire, one who can lead them to victory in the battle to defeat Mankind.

When the time is right, the spirit of Dracu will return in the sacred place of “Somewhere in England”.

That place is . . . here,      that day is . . . today,       and the right time is . . . NOW!

HABEAS CORPUS - BLACKBURN DRAMA CLUB

HABEAS CORPUS is a comedy stage play by the Englsih author Alan Bennett. It was first performed at the Lyric Theatre in London on 10 May 1973, with Alec Guinness and Margaret Courtenay in the lead roles.

It concerns the aging Dr. Arthur Wicksteed and his pursuit of a nubile patient, Felicity Rumpers. Wicksteed's wife, Muriel, is, in turn, lusting after the charming head of the BMA, Sir Percy Shorter, who, as well as being Wicksteed's old rival, turns out to be Felicity's father- the result of an under-the-table liaison during an air-raid with Lady Rumpers, her mother.

Felicity herself is pregnant and finds a way to cover it up in the hypochondriac son of Dr. Wicksteed, Denis.

Meanwhile, Wicksteed's spinster sister Connie, ashamed of her flat-chestedness, has schemes of her own. The 'chorus' is provided by the lower-class, housekeeper Mrs. Swabb.
