Check out some of the full line up below. More details to follow.
WrabNess’s answer to – well we don’t know what really. For such a small village, Wrabness is able to draw on an enormous pool of musical talent, concert pianists, conductors, well establish bastions of of the music scene in and around Essex. Unfortunately none of those were available so instead we have Plasticine Hands. They are able to provide hours of endless fun, creativity and self expression, plus they are cheap, available and usually punctual. Plus all members of the band helped build the site, so the payback is having to put them on stage! Joking aside, prior to their debut performance last year they undersold themselves then went on to produce a great set.

Fronted by the exceptional Lead Guitarist Julie Usher. Julie Usher Twisted Blues Band play a powerful collection of original, sometimes quirky, songs with a few less commonly heard covers thrown in for good measure.
The Twisted Blues Band are certainly not run of the mill and the music they play challenges perceptions and expectations of Blues music – a refreshingly different approach to a well established and well loved musical genre. Music that is simply impossible to ignore.
Its Blues With A Twist – Its Twisted Blues
Quality musicianship and downright kicking music.

Celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year we are pleased to welcome back these perennial favorites. Established in the late 80’s, the original members of the Red Hot Radiators came to prominence in the 90’s, gigging throughout Essex & Suffolk, performing an alternative playlist of numbers from artists such as Ian Drury & The Blockheads, The Stranglers, Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero and many more in a repertoire of song well into three figures.
Valdez have been a firm favourite on the East Anglian live music scene for over five years. Playing an up-tempo mix of pop, rock, funk, reggae and disco floor-fillers, they’re renowned for reinventing songs and putting their own twist on them. The three-piece have covered songs from artists as wide and varied as Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters through to Kylie Minogue and Faithless (plus everything in between!). They’ll be treating us to a rare acoustic performance which promises to be a treat for all present
There’s a reason some paths are tried and tested, it’s because they work. Bands who’ve known each other since they were kids. Bands who began at school and went through an exercise book of daft names. Bands who played the covers circuit and learned why the great songs are great, and how to entertain. That path worked for The Beatles, it worked for The Stones and it works now.
When you know that’s also the story of The Landed – two brothers and two friends from Colchester in Essex, you can hear it in their music. Songs that sound like a childhood of swapping all the right records, figuring out the chords and playing gigs in the assembly hall to impress girls who never looked in their direction. Classic, heart-on-sleeve, hooks by the bucket load, joyous, air-punching guitar pop. The kind of songs you write when you don’t want to get a proper job.
Playing a soulful funky mix of anthemic, original material “SHINE” are a real crowd pleaser. Guaranteed to get an audience to it’s feet and leave them not only calling for more but also with a smile on their faces!.
We are keeping this quiet for a moment or two but we know you will love them, all I can say is that they are a great Tribute Band
