6 July 2018 – Bob Bell and Dave Nurney

dave and bob playing guitarsThis month we bring you not one, but two great local musicians! Dave Nurney comes from West Walton and will be playing songs from the 80s and 90s. I’m sure you will recognize a few and can join in!

Bob Bell is from Murrow and specializes in Country & Western music, playing some of the great classics of this genre. He also does a mean yodel!

August 2018 – There is no After Hours Live in August. Enjoy your Summer Holidays!

7 September – Papa G

Papa G offer guitar-led instrumentals of jazz and Latin standards.  Their sophisticated music creates a cool, ‘Dinner Jazz’ ambiance.

Come along for a chilled night out with some smooth music for you to relax and enjoy!

5 October – Alan Vibes and Christopher

Another double-whammy for you this month. We bring together two local artists, Alan Vibes (famous for Elvis and Tom Jones covers) and Christopher (who plays smooth guitar). They will be performing separately, although may do some songs together.

2 November – Paul Bell

Paul Bell, Smiling

Singer, songwriter and all-round nice guy, Paul wrote his first songs at the age of 8. You’ll be pleased to know he’s improved. Paul loves to take his unique brand of melody, lyricism and acoustic whimsy to different stages all across the country.

Tackling subjects as diverse as the rising oceans, successful long term relationships, procrastination, integrity and knitwear, Paul often finds himself off the lyrical beaten track, carving out a niche as one of the more engaging live performers you’ll come across. Those who’ve heard the moving ballad “Unnoticed” or the now infamous “The need for biscuits” will attest that he is equally at home being silly and sensible.

Paul writes songs that affirm and provoke, raise giggle and a tear, and leave you humming the tunes on the way home. Delivered with trademark wit and warmth and some tasty acoustic guitar playing, Paul is an artist who aims to entertain and inspire in equal measure.

7 December – Trace Taylor

Previously the lead singer of Tall Trees Rising, and with over 20 years experience, Trace brings her unique style to her performances. Specializing in guitar-driven rock/pop, whilst experimenting with electronic sounds, Trace will perform a set of original material and well known covers in her own unique style. Watch out for a couple of Christmas songs mixed in for good measure!

About

Here’s a little about us . . .

 

After Hours Live is a monthly event that takes place on the first Friday of every month in the heart of the Fens. It combines first-class entertainment with a twist of faith. Performers come from far and wide across the UK, as well as some great home-grown local talent.

Starting at 7:30pm, the doors open (7pm) and Octavia’s cafe swings into action brewing up steaming cups of tea and luscious cappuccinos and lattes. Free entry means that you can come and enjoy the comfortable cafe atmosphere and still be able to afford a cup of your favourite beverage and maybe even treat yourself to an indulgent slice of cake! Some performers may also bring CDs they have recorded or books they have written that will also be available on the night.

After Hours Live is an initiative of The King’s Church in Wisbech. We would like to thank Octavia’s Cafe which is run by the Ferry Project for their support and superb venue. Every beverage and slice of cake bought at Octavia’s Cafe goes to the Ferry Project charity who seek to re-house and rehabilitate the homeless.

If you are a performer and are looking for an event to perform at, please contact us.
