    Tango In The NightTango in the Night is now in its 6th year, and though we don’t have the opportunity to gig that often, due to band member commitments, for 2019 we intend to do 4 at good sized venues.

    The band has evolved into the perfect Mac tribute, and all the main Mac characters are there, with the very welcome return of Esther Baker to the fold, she is literally the Stevie that Stevie Nicks would like to be and the reason I created the band in the first place!   With a sublime vocal quality that cannot be surpassed, Esther woos with Dreams and Rocks with Gold Dust!

    Bob Seymour is very well known and respected throughout Cornwall as a stand out solo artiste, but he joins us as our Peter Green and vocally absolutely nails it He trades the blues guitar licks superbly with myself and also plays session guitar and backing vocals throughout the show.

    Amy Bellis . . . . .  I didn’t know Amy from Adam, but when I saw her in a pub restaurant one evening looking so much like a young Christine McVie I actually went up to her and asked her if she sang and played keys?!   And what do you know?!    Same voice and same talent too! Amy is an original member of this band, and has a degree in music to boot!

    Steve Yendell is our John McVie and another original member who works tirelessly to emulate John's bass style and sound, he looks and plays the part so well!    Steve has played in many bands in and around London and Sussex, and has been a London studio session player.

    Kev Dodd is our Main man Mick Fleetwood and a former decorated Royal Navy aircrew officer. His technical ability, style and feel and just plain enthusiasm for the drums is inspiring!   It may well be his military background that provides his obsession with getting things just right, but whatever it is he’s obviously the perfect man for the job!

    Our two lovely backing singers Kim and Yvette were part of a fabulous vocal harmony quartet who recorded in our studio over ten years ago, and have years of experience in harmonising, and it shows!

    Ritchard Jones is our great percussionist and has performed with us many times before and is one of the very best around!

    I’m Kenny Barnes and responsible for this lovely bunch, and I play the role of Lindsey Buckingham.  I trained at the RNCM and also run the studio.

    John on Sound and Caroline on Lights make sure the whole show looks and sounds great! Thanks Guys!

    In "A Star Is Born," Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive.

    In this new take on the iconic love story, four-time Oscar nominee Cooper ("American Sniper," "American Hustle," "Silver Linings Playbook"), makes his directorial debut, and also stars alongside multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Gaga in her first leading role in a major motion picture.

    Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally. She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

    'Rumours' St Austell PlayersRumours is a riotously funny farce where eight dinner party guests face a nightmare.
    Their host, Charley, has a bullet wound to his earlobe, but he is too dazed to explain how he got it!
    Charley is a prominent government official so a scandal is to be avoided at all costs.
    The guests themselves have too many personal problems to contend with, on top of which, some of them have been involved in a car crash.
    Then there is a second gunshot and the police arrive, asking difficult questions  . . . . . . . . .

    Bohemian Rhapsody celebrates the band Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers ever.

    Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career.

    Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

    Press Gang has been performing to audiences with their harmonious singing since 2012. We specialise in entertaining our audiences with songs of the sea, songs about Cornwall, and a sprinkling of comedy numbers, all delivered with wit and enthusiasm.
    Our reputation has taken us to Festivals throughout the country, and a Flash Mob Video of us performing ‘Cornwall My Home’ at Gatwick Airport has been seen by well over 500,000 people! We were featured on BBC Spotlight when we performed on board the 'Phoenix' in Charlestown for the Poppy Appeal.
    We have sold some 1500 CDs.  The Fowey branch of the RNLI receive £1.00 from each CD sale. We are about to record our 3rd CD featuring some of our new material.   We are really looking forward to hosting tonight's show, raising money for our own funds which, in turn, enables us to perform at various charity events throughout Cornwall.

    Tonight, we line up with the fabulous Cana, who performed with NoteAbility at Holy Trinity Church in 2018. They were amazing!
    Cana are a classical trio with a laid back style.   Their repertoire is a mix of opera favourites, hits from the musicals and close harmony songs from the 1940's and 50's. International singers, Caroline, Evie and Shelley are three Divas who are passionate about bringing the extraordinary sound of classical voices into more intimate venues.
    Their laid back performance style and top quality voices, alongside songs ranging from Puccini to the Andrews Sisters, will appeal to both opera lovers and those who have never heard the sound of opera up close and personal before.
    In addition to Cana, we are thrilled to have been able to get Jonathan Tucker to sing with us.
    We heard him sing recently at St Johns in St Austell and were blown away by his voice.
    He first started singing when he was 18 when he sang with Restormel Theatre Company. He has subsequently sung with a number of other theatre companies, playing various lead roles.
    You can expect him to sing songs from the shows with a huge amount of passion.
    You are going to love his voice.

    Do You Think That's Wise?”

    The Life & Times of John Le Mesurier

    Written and performed by Julian Dutton

    (Alistair MacGowan's Big Impression, Pompidou)

    ST AUSTELL ARTS CENTRE SATURDAY, 15TH JUNE – 7.30pm

    Book tickets here by clicking here

    Tickets: £13.00 / £11.00 (unwaged)

    Julian Dutton is an English comedy writer and performer, principally for television and radio, whose work has won a British Comedy Award, a BAFTA, and a Radio Academy Gold Award for Best Comedy. Julian has toured as a support act to Harry Hill and Al Murray. He is also know to many as the Secret Lemonade Drinker, in the famous tv commercials!

    In 2018, Julian wrote and performed a one-man stage tribute to the actor John Le Mesurier, "Do You Think That's Wise?" which he took to the Edinburgh Fringe festival in August and is now touring the UK, including a West End run in London in April & May, 2019.

    In his affectionate tribute to one of Britain’s best-loved comedy stars, Julian brings to life the man behind the wry smile and urbane English repartee that charmed millions and turned John Le Mesurier into a household name as Sergeant Wilson in Dad’s Army, one of the UK's most beloved situation comedies.

    As with many comedy stars, Le Mesurier’s life was not without tragedy – his broken marriage to Hattie Jacques, his betrayal by his best friend Tony Hancock – all these setbacks shook him, but his reputation as the quintessential English Gentleman never wavered. The show is packed with glorious reminiscences and stories from the Golden Age of Classic British Comedy.

    The show's title, Do You Think That's Wise, Sir? Is taken from Sergeant Wilson's tactful reply to any one of Captain Mainwaring's ridiculous suggestions. This humourous and touching one-man play reveals the pleasure and the pain of John Le Mesurier's life; the life of a self-styled “jobbing actor”, whose refined and cultured public persona concealed a personal life with more than its fair share of betrayal, heartbreak and sadness.

    Julian is the co-creator and co-writer of the BBC2 comedy series Pompidou starring Matt Lucas, the first visual comedy TV series to be made for almost twenty years, since Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean and which is currently showing in 192 countries on Netflix.

    Described as one of "the best vocal performers around," (BBC Comedy) he was one of the co-creators, main writers and performer on hit BBC One comedy show The Big Impression with Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona, and has also written and starred in several of his own series on BBC Radio 4, as well as writing extensively for many other TV and radio shows.

    Julian Dutton’s show is a joyful and moving celebrationof one of the most popular comic actors of our era.

    You would think that John Le Mesurier was actually stood before you.

    Chris Difford

    An evening that's sure to be Cool For Cats!

    He never thought it would happen...
    Chris Difford
    brings his ‘Up the Junction’ tour to the St Austell Arts Centre, providing a string of songs and stories from his incredible life on and off the road, with his band Squeeze.

    Chris is a rare breed. As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has with his collaborator, Glenn Tilbrook, very much “The Odd Couple”! Together they have made a lasting contribution to popular music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Tempted’.

    Despite the fact that Chris has helped provide the soundtrack to so many fans’ lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing & performing, rather than sit back and admire his handiwork.

    Over the course of a 13 album (40 year!) career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His street-savvy, witty & wise words and music Chris has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, with his influence and style still strong today today.

    Lily Allen and Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Feeling have all recognised the debt they owe to Squeeze’s music and to Difford’s way with words, while journalists were moved by his winning combination with Glenn Tilbrook to dub the pair ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’.

    Chris first learned to stand on his own when he wrote the lyrics for the fictional band Strange Fruit in the 1998 British comedy film ‘Still Crazy’, for which he won his first Ivor Novello award. Since then he has written and contributed lyrics for the likes of Elton John, Wet Wet Wet, Jools Holland, Paul Carrack, Lisa Stansfield and Bryan Ferry.

    Don't miss your chance to spend an evening in the company of the Grammy nominated, double Ivor Novello award winner and one of the finest singer songwriters of our generation.

    Take him – he's yours!

    Dolly Parton is enjoying quite some 2019. The 8-times Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter made a show-stealing appearance at this year's Grammys, where she was honoured as the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year. A revival of her show 9 to 5 has just opened to rave reviews in London's glittering West End and, later this year, an eight episode series entitled Dolly Parton's Heartstrings, based on the stories and inspirations behind Parton’s most beloved songs will premiere on Netflix.

    So, what better time is there to see a show based on the iconic Country music star's life and career?

    That is exactly what Hannah Richards' show The Dolly Parton Story does. This is no “tribute act”, but an affectionate and accurate look at Dolly Parton through good times and bad, performed in a ground-breaking format that takes its audience on an incredible journey through the highs and lows of Dolly's working and personal lives.

    Featuring passionate and heart-felt renditions of Jolene, 9 to 5, Islands In The Stream, Here You Come Again, Coat Of Many Colours, Joshua and many more, The Dolly Parton Story enjoyed sell out shows with standing ovations at Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.

    Hannah sings the songs and tells the story of the “Queen of Country Music”, from her humble beginnings in the Smoky Mountains to her arrival as an international modern-day icon, idolised across generations, by men and women alike.

    Follow Dolly’s story from her childhood poverty, successful marriage, struggles in the music industry and making the cross-over from country to pop - this is a true rag to riches story that will leave you wanting more.

    Dolly Parton has won an astonishing 153 major awards including eight Grammys and 11 County Music Awards, including the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016,

    What a beautiful performance. Dolly’s Music comes alive in a contemporary way” Dominic King, BBC Radio
