The Blockheads (Spyboy promotion)
Sunday 19th June 2016
| 7:30pm | St Mary in the Castle, Hastings

Reasons to be cheerful! ... The Blockheads are coming to town - yes the same Blockheads that used to back Ian Dury and who, since the great man's death in 2000, have been touring regularly with most of the original line-up, performing both an awesome back catalogue and their own new material.
Dury's front man vocal role is taken by his minder in the band's heyday, Derek the Draw, (Derek Hussey) whose new songs keep the combination of poetry, word play, earthy humour and deadly-accurate observations of everyday British working-class life that Ian had perfected.
Joining Derek on stage are Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher from the original band and this line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and saxophonist Gilad Atzmon.
Alongside Hussey's new material you can expect all the familiar hits, Reasons to Be Cheerful, Billericay Dickie, What a Waste, Clever Trevor, Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Sweet Gene Vincent, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and so many more.

Tickets are £21.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.

Larry Garner (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 29 October 2016
| 8:00pm

Larry Garner was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1952 and was raised around Baton Rouge, the home of Swamp Blues music.
He has been influenced by many of the Baton Rouge blues scene and writes his own material that reflects his upbringing and surroundings - his songs being delivered with a sense of irony and passion.
A five-time Blues Music Award nominee for Contemporary Male Blues Artist, he was inducted into the Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame in 2002, has a W.C. Handy Award and has been honoured by the BBC as its Bluesman of the Year.
With a dozen albums to his credit and thousands of blues miles travelled, Larry Garner is without doubt one of the world's top contemporary bluesmen.
He is in the UK for just a handful of dates and is being backed by the British based Norman Beaker Band, who Pavilion regulars have seen many times backing Chris Farlowe.
As well as Chris, Norman and the band have shared the stage with amongst others Chuck Berry, Jack Bruce, Peter Green, Buddy Guy, Paul Jones, BB King, Alexis Korner, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and recently supported Van Morrison on an extensive tour.

| 7:30pm | St Mary in the Castle, Hastings

During Eliza Carthy's twenty five year career she has become one of the most dazzling and recognised folk musicians of the modern generation.
She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with canny, charismatic and boundary-crossing performances. Many of the current crop of young musicians owe their successes in part to her determination, standard-bearing and campaigning spirit.
Eliza Carthy comes to St Mary in the Castle to showcase her new twelve piece powerhouse super-group, which is bursting with some of the finest players in recent times, including members of Bellowhead, Mawkin, Blowzabella, Edward II, and the Peatbog Fairies - The Wayward Band.

Albert Lee with Peter Asher (Spyboy promotion)
Sunday 06 November 2016
| 7:30pm

Albert Lee is leaving his stateside home for a short Autumn UK tour and he is bringing his life-long friend Peter Asher with him.
Multiple Grammy winners Albert Lee and Peter Asher are set to combine their talents for an acoustic evening of songs and stories.
Albert Lee who has been called "the ultimate virtuoso" by Eric Clapton is a Pavilion favourite, and after taking up residence in the USA shortly after last year's concert, we feared he would never play for us again.
Peter Asher, probably best known as one half of '60s hit makers Peter & Gordon, was to become director of A&R at the Beatles' Apple Records, and then go on to regularly produce records for some of America’s finest, including James Taylor, Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Bonnie Raitt.
Both Albert Lee and Peter Asher have been influenced from their earliest days by great American artists like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers and they will undoubtedly bring those influences to the Pavilion for this very special show.
Here you can see Albert and Peter sound checking

Tickets are £22.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414) or online.
Judie Tzuke (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 12 November 2016
| 7:30pm

After the sell out success of the Songs and Stories 2015 tour, which saw Judie perform over forty concerts around the country, she is back on the road again and makes a welcome stop-off at the Pavilion.
The concert promises to be an intimate evening of old favourites and tales from across her life and career.
Judie Tzuke is one of the UK's finest singer-song writers and is known all over the world for her timeless song, Stay With Me Till Dawn, and her many top 10 albums, that includes the revered classic, Welcome to the Cruise.
However Judie doesn’t solely rely on her back catalogue, she remains a remarkably creative artist; her songwriting getting stronger with the passing years and her vocals having gained a warm timbre that merely adds to, rather than detracts from her charms.
"The voice has lost none of its cool, plaintive appeal; it's still an instrument of icy allure" The Times ... Decide for yourself

David Bowie – A Celebration (Spyboy promotion)
Saturday 03 December 2016
| 7:30pm

DavidLive presents ... 'Nothing Has Changed', a live show celebrating David Bowie in 'Sound And Vision' ...
David Bowie, who died aged 69 on 10 January 2016, had an immeasurable impact on music and popular culture ...
This show presents a sincere token of remembrance; the band lovingly recreating Bowie favourites including 'Rebel Rebel', 'The Jean Genie', 'Ziggy Stardust', 'Changes', 'Starman', 'Life On Mars', 'Oh! You Pretty Things', 'Suffragette City', 'All The Young Dudes', 'Lady Stardust', 'Moonage Daydream', 'Fame', 'Golden Years', 'Sound And Vision', 'Heroes' , 'Let’s Dance', 'Modern Love', 'Ashes To Ashes', 'Blue Jean', 'Fashion', 'The Man Who Sold The World', 'China Girl', 'Cat People' and 'Space Oddity'.
Opening with his early years as Ziggy Stardust, DavidLive faithfully captures the look and sound that launched Bowie as a superstar, the show then takes a musical shift as Bowie returns as The Thin White Duke, and it is onto The Berlin Years, with songs such as 'Sound And Vision' and the anthemic 'Heroes', it continues with Bowie's funk-infused pop from the 80s onwards, after the 1983 release of 'Let’s Dance' and his rise to global stardom, with songs such as 'China Girl', 'Modern Love' and 'Blue Jean'!
David Bowie may have left us but his influence will be felt for generations.
This night is all about our love and respect for the man who Rolling Stone called "the greatest rock star ever", and how his songs will stay with us always ...
Take a look DavidLive, a tribute to David Bowie with their live version of "Heroes"
