LIVE music lovers are in for a treat with a feast of bands playing over the next week.

Kicking off tomorrow night at 8.00pm at the Flower Pot, King St, Derby is Slyde Alive, a Slade tribute band.

Tickets are £8 and the promoters promise: “The sounds, the sights and the power of Great Britain’s greatest live act.

“The band faithfully replicates the bawdy sing-along tunes, the glam and glitter excess.

“Much more, they give you the raw rock & roll power that was the Black Country legend’s calling card at every live gig.

“Slyde Alive were formed to play the classic Slade songs the way the band themselves played them live.

“The set list is a glitter strewn journey through Slade’s glam rock anthems of the 70’s right up to the rock revival hits of the 80’s.”

Friday night sees the return of popular group Dr Feelgood.

Doors open at 8pm at tickets cost £13.

Described as ‘one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world’, the current line up features the rhythm section Kevin Morris on drums and Phil Mitchell on bass, both celebrating 28 years in the band this year, Steve Walwyn on guitar and vocalist Robert Kane.

The weekend continues with The Fillers, a tribute to The Killers, on Saturday night, admission is £10 and doors open at 8pm.

The band have received the ultimate in recognition when they were given a glowing review by Ronnie Vannucci Jr of The Killers who also joined The Fillers on drums for a guest spot and subsequently treated The Fillers to an all access experience at The Killers Radio 1 showcase at The Royal Albert Hall.

Davie Bowie fans will enjoy the Sunday night tribute group, Jean Genie, with tickets selling at £10 and doors opening at 8pm.

Jean Genie was formed in 1993 and soon became known for their flamboyant stage show, playing their energetic 70s and 80s show complete with multicoloured costume changes and dazzling effects.

Fans are promised a selection of Bowie songs including the classics, Heroes, Let’s Dance, Life On Mars, Rebel Rebel, Jean Genie, Under Pressure and Ashes To Ashes.
