[box style=’success’]Matt Woosey[/box]
Matt’s powerful blues-ey, soulful but then at times delicate voice delivers a brilliant acoustic performance, rather reminiscent of Jim Morrison and the rawness and sometimes darkness of The Doors. Matt supported the Brand New Heavies in Buxton back in February this year and brought the house down, so get here early to secure your spot.

Queens Head | 21st August 2014, from 9.30pm
This open-mic ‘Royal Rock Night’ is now a firm favourite on the live music scene in Buxton. Literally anything goes and it’s the unexpected that makes this night so much fun. We saw some familiar faces from the live music circuit but another band we’d never seen giving it the full on thrash metal treatment. Loud, head-banging great fun in a super duper venue.
