** Fri 14 Spiders Web Grimsby 01472 349222 (cancelled)
** Slack Alice's gig at the Spiders Web in Grimsby was cancelled due to circumstances beyond the band's and promoter's control. Freak weather conditions, which led to the closure of the M62 and other routes from Lancashire and police advice for motorists not to travel due to flash floods in the Lancashire area resulted in the late cancellation of the gig on Fri 14 Jun. The band apologise for any disappointment caused, and wasted journey. It is hoped to re-arrange a gig at the Spiders Web later in the year.

Message from Slack Alice:With apologies to everyone who was looking forward to seeing the band at Skegness this Sunday but sadly we`ve had to pull out. One of the band members has had a routine surgical procedure brought forward from February to this week and he`s under strict orders to rest completely until the middle of next week. We`re all gutted to miss out on this great festival but health issues have to take priority. We`ll be back.....maybe sooner than you think!

Message from Slack Alice:With apologies to everyone who had plans to see the band at Reivers Rock and Blues Festival on the 29th May but the unexpectedly long post surgical recovery of one of our members has left us with no other option but to cancel. I know they have a great act lined up to replace us but I`ll leave it up them to make the announcement. Hope all who attend have a great Festival.

PAST GIGS


There is a special acoustic concert featuring three members of Slack Alice taking place on Thu 12th Dec 2002 at the Eagle Lodge Hotel in Woodhall Spa. There are currently very few opportunities to see Slack Alice performing this acoustic set. For further details see press release:

Heart Of Lincolnshire Folk, Roots & Blues Club

Proudly present

SLACK ALICE (Acoustic) Plus support from SUZY MARTELL DUO

THU 12th DECEMBER 2002 (concert starts 8.30pm approx)

The Heart Of Lincolnshire Folk, Roots & Blues Club hold their final concert of the year at the Eagle Lodge Hotel in Woodhall Spa. Members from Slack Alice, one of Britain's finest live blues bands will be performing a unique acoustic show for the club's Christmas party.

The trio feature Cliff Stocker, the amazing frontman and founder member of Slack Alice, guitarist Chris Preston who is also a regular member of the band and keyboard player Paul Lucker, who has worked and recorded with Slack Alice since their reformation in the 90's. They will perform a set of acoustic original songs regularly performed by the full electric band and other favourites such as 'My Little Girl' that feature on the band's three CD's, some exciting new songs and blues and jazz standards.

A singer whose gravel toned voice oozes the blues, Cliff also plays harmonica and acoustic guitar, during his long and fascinating career he has played with artists such as John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and more. Cliff will relate some of the many stories he has to tell between songs. Chris Preston is a major factor in the band's sound, tonight he will be playing acoustic guitar, including slide whilst talented keyboard player Paul Lucker provides superb backing.

Regularly touring nationally, Slack Alice are one of the favourite acts at the Great British R'n'B Festival at Colne, they have also headlined at the Skegness Rock & Blues and Maryport Festivals in 2002.

During this time they have also appeared at Blackfriars Arts Centre in Boston, the Embassy Centre in Skegness as well as a sell out concert at the Workhouse Folk & Blues Club, whilst the full electric band drew a large crowd to Woodhall last April. This though will be a very rare opportunity to see another side of this fabulous band in an intimate venue!

The Suzy Martell Duo provide a contrasting support act. Yorkshire born Suzy is accompanied by acoustic guitarist Keith, they will be performing a mix of country and blues influenced songs, including numbers by Sheffield blues artist Frank White which also feature on her debut CD, 'Broken Hearts IN Nashville' which was recorded in USA.

Following the recent sell out concert by the Hot Tamales at the Eagle Lodge Hotel in Woodhall Spa, the Heart Of Lincolnshire Folk, Roots & Blues Club welcome back Cliff Stocker, the charismatic frontman and founder member of one of Britain's finest live blues bands Slack Alice & his songwriting partner Paul Lucker who also plays keyboards on the band's three CD's team for their special Christmas concert,

The duo who played on the Lincolnshire County Council Bandstand at this year's Lincolnshire Show will perform a set of original songs, including numbers that feature on Slack Alice CD's but are now rarely played live such as 'My Little Girl'. They also include songs from Leadbelly, The Animals and Warren Zevon as well as blues classics during this rare 'unplugged' show. The duo recently featured on Mick Smith's BBC East Midlands radio show, playing some of the songs you will hear at Woodhall, live in the studio.

A singer whose gravel toned voice oozes the blues, Cliff also plays harmonica and acoustic guitar. During his long & fascinating career he has played with many of the blues greats including John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon in the 60's. Thirty years ago Cliff formed the band Slack Alice, who flirted with the big time in the mid 70's, and who reformed in the mid 90's, becoming festival favourites at Colne and Skegness Rock & Blues Festivals. They have appeared locally at Woodhall, at arts centres in Boston, Gainsborough and the Skegness Embassy Theatre during the past 18 months.

Cliff will recount some of the many stories he has to tell between songs. Talented keyboard player Paul Lucker provides superb backing and a few stories of his own in a show that is informal, and laid back, yet one that will be both entertaining and memorable. There will also be some special guest appearances during the evening.

The concert which takes place at the Eagle Lodge Hotel on The Braodway, Woodhall Spa, will provide the area's music lovers with a rare opportunity to see another side of this fabulous band at a small venue! Tickets priced £5.00 (accompanied children U16 admitted free) can be reserved in advance by tel. 01526 343989 or purchased, subject to availability on the night.
