Formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury's album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK. The Blockheads are fronted by Derek 'The Draw' Hussey, who was Ian's best friend and is now the band's vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis. These legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.

Lead singer and songwriter from Stourbridge indie-rockers The Wonder Stuff, Miles started his solo career after the band split in 1994. The Stuffies re-formed in 2000, and Miles has continued to tour as both a solo artist as well as with the band. Known for his dry wit as well as his songwriting talents, expect some banter, new songs and acoustic versions of one or two Wonder Stuff favourites.

Formed in 1966 by Adge Cutler, the Bard of Avonmouth, this bunch of haystack-headed, cider-soaked and dung-booted, not-quite-so-young Avonside lads play good-time traditional Zummerzet Scrumpy 'n' Western music. The band has had considerable commercial success, from their 1967 anthem Drink Up Thy Zider, to the heights of the chart-topping Combine Harvester in 1976. Big in Nempnett Thrubwell, The Wurzels continue to play over 100 shows a year to sell out crowds all over the country, with regular festival appearances at Bestival, Guilfest, Finsbury Park and Glastonbury.
