Our amazing line up here

‘Keith Richards can’t be killed by conventional weapons’ – Del Preston, Wayne’s World 2

We are choosing to believe this is true.  How else could you explain the fact that over 50 years of death, drugs, destruction and falling out of coconut trees, the greatest show on earth is still on the road?

While not quite of the same vintage, The Rolling Clones have been entertaining crowds across the country for nearly 25 years, distilling the show down to a pure hit of rock ‘n’ roll with chaser of sequinned Glam.

From the early days of the rhythm & blues, through to the excesses of the 70s, The Rolling Clones rock ‘n’ roll show is a faithful interpretation of the biggest band ever greatest hits, delivered with a smirk & a wink, recalling the mischief making Mr. Jagger himself and remaining true to the spirit of the originals.

Adam Fearn

Adam has been playing with bands and other acts such as Not the Droids and Adam & Rick in and around Hertford for the past 14 years. As a solo act, he likes to keep people entertained with upbeat acoustic renditions of familiar songs spanning all ages.

The Leading Edge

Now in their 40th anniversary year..!!… with an album released last summer (“Us”), and a new album coming out just before Rock in the Priory!

The lineup (same now as then!):

Russell West: Guitar, Vocals

Gaz Tilly: Bass

Tim Churchill: Drums


Quivering Lip

Quivering Lip are a two piece band from Essex, partners in music and in life.

Using a loop pedal to cook up some home made backing tracks, their live set has the sound of a full band – and some!  String arrangements, harmonies galore, and the odd surprise sound of their parrot squawking or kids playing makes for a truly unique live experience.

Whilst working closely with producer Martin Lumsden on a new all original album, they also play the odd cover – with a QL twist.

QL have a bit of something for everyone – join them on their quest for the domination of Ware!
