THERE’S an exciting selection of bands lined up to take to the stage at The Flowerpot in Derby during the month of February.

At the moment, the venue, based on King Street in the city centre, has its regular Wednesday night selection of acoustic sessions but, once the month is over, these will be added to by some illustrious visitors.

The month kicks off on February 1 with an acoustic session by Woolley and Archer, followed on Friday, February 3, by the visit of The Doors Alive with their tribute to the rich musical legacy of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek and co.

Skinny Molly are the visitors on Saturday, February 4, with their exhilarating brand of Southern rock and roll, set to get a few toes tapping among audience members.

Connie Lush and Blues Shouter need little in the way of introduction, thanks to a selection of electrifying sets that they played at the venue over the year. Connie is a phenomenal live performer so if you haven’t sampled them in action before, make sure you pop along on Friday, February 10.

ZZ Top fans are in for a treat on Saturday, February 11, when The ZZ Tops are the star attraction with their tribute to the back catalogue of ZZ Top.

Lovers of the music of those sparring siblings the Gallagher brothers shouldn’t miss Ohasis on Friday, February 17, when the music of Oasis is given the full tribute treatment.

Colin Blunstone first found fame as a member of The Zombies in the 1960s and has retained his reputation as a fine performer ever since. He brings his band to The Flowerpot on Saturday, February 18, followed by an appearance on Thursday, February 23, by those veteran folk rockers The Strawbs with an acoustic show.

There’s a dash of blues on Friday, February 24, from 25 Pesos and then AC/DC UK light up the venue on Saturday, February 25, with their exciting tribute to the legendary rock metal act.

Finally, the month is rounded off by another appearance from Woolley and Archer in a Leap Year acoustic set on Wednesday, February 29.
