Check out the Larry Miller Band when they make an appearance at The Flowerpot in Derby on Friday, June 19.

RAW Promotions are proud to present a band fronted by one of this country’s leading guitarists and most entertaining performers.

With his energetic and eclectic style, Larry brings a new dimension of showmanship to his performances.

After picking up his brother’s guitar and writing his first song the very same day, he felt his future lay in rock music. To begin with, Larry decided to concentrate on blues rock: “For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live, I had never experienced anything like it.

“So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I NOT do this too! Like Rory I’d work under my own name, with my own band. I’d do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.”

Very quickly, Larry found his own style, and has been constantly refining it. Having just released his new album, Unfinished Business, Larry is optimistic about the future: “I am beginning to move away from pure blues rock into a heavier rock style, and the new album reflects this move, it’s a really exciting album!”

Larry is very much his own man. He has a large following right across the UK and Europe, and enjoys touring. He is currently on a UK/European tour to promote the latest album.

Then on Saturday night, there’s the chance to enjoy to the King Street-based venue by top performers Slade UK.

Since arriving on the tribute scene as Slyde Alive, Slade UK have left fans openmouthed with the accuracy of their show.

Once thought impossible, Slade UK recreate the experience of a real Slade show with all the power of the original band. Once seen, never forgotten.

Relive a time when Noddy and the lads were the best live rock & roll band in the world.

Highlights so far include being chosen to open for the legendary Roy Wood of Wizzard on his 2013 Christmas tour, appearing on the main stage of Tribfest 2014, meeting Don Powell and finding out that Noddy Holder himself approves.

The latest Acoustic Wednesdays takes place on June 24 and features a double bill of Cubanistas and The Raindogs, performing sets of Cuban boleros and jazzy blues respectively. The free gig is the bar at The Flowerpot.

Doors open at 8pm for all three gigs. Admission for The Larry Miller Band is £12, and it’s £8 for Slade UK.
