The Watch

The Watch play GENESIS
GREEN - A live performance of the whole “SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND” album

Sunday 1st April

The Watch, a 5 pieces prog rock band from Milan, who currently have 8 original albums on release present their GENESIS tribute in GREEN on this, their 8th annual visit to THE FERRY.

This year’s production will showcase a live presentation of the whole of the SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND album – with every track performed live and sounding as close to the original recording as you are likely to hear.

AND that’s not all - the show will further be augmented with highlights from the 1970-75 GENESIS catalogue.

No other group manages to capture the adventurousness and electricity of Genesis in their pioneering days with quite such raw emotion.

The most dramatic Gabrielesque vocals and the all-round instrumental excellence of the band ensure a special show not to be missed !

Steve Hackett (Genesis lead guitarist) says: "The Watch is a band of very talented people and I recommend them."

Paul Whitehead (Genesis graphic artist): "The band who remind me most of the Genesis magic."

John Otway

John Otway

Rock Burger & Sides Night

Thursday 5th April

John Otway is an English singer-songwriter who has built a sizeable cult audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and a self-deprecating underdog persona.
Now a regular visitor to The Ferry we know what to expect - madcap mayhem and some scintillating stunts from a man old enough to know better…..regulars to his shows are unsurprised at just what a showman and musician really lies underneath the tomfoolery.
2016 saw a remarkably successful Kickstarter appeal which raised over £40,000 for John Otway and the Big Band to record their first new album in many years on the island of Monserrat, whose famous studios hosted bands such as the Rolling Stones before being devastated by forces of nature, being a preferable option to Harlow.
The album (strangely enough called ‘ Montserrat’ ) is available now on Red Bowler Records.

Martin Turner

Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash

Rock Burger & Sides Night

Thursday 12th April

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody, Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music's best loved works and influence numerous successful bands and result in millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts and its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic rock music.

Over four decades later, the enduring music of the classic marks of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new. Classic album releases such as Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans.

As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being key ingredients in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound. Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown.

Bootleg Blondie

Bootleg Blondie

Friday 13th April

BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band and the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGB’s in New York City before its demise in 2006. CBGB’s was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie first kicked off their career.

Debbie Harris and Bootleg Blondie have played the Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club, the Hammersmith Palais, The Electric Ballroom in London, Eric’s in Liverpool, and have opened up for amongst others - The Undertones, Slade, Bad Manners, The Beat, Heaven 17, Toyah, Hazel O’Connor, Tony Hadley and can be seen at all the major venues and festivals around the UK and Europe.

Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie and are officially endorsed by the band. Debbie Harry got in touch in 2006 when she heard we were playing CBGB’s in New York City to wish us good luck with our show and when Clem Burke, Blondie's charismatic drummer, found out that we were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for us to meet him to sign our bass drum skin. ‘During the 2010 Blondie tour of the UK we took Clem out for a trip around London in our tour bus, he signed that too!!!!’

 In 2014 Clem invited Debbie and Andy to a recording session at the Foo Fighters’ famous 606 Studio in Los Angeles, where they saw Clem and the awesome Neve mixing desk in action!

Debbie and Andy got married in March 2016 and to their great delight received two video clips from both Blondie and Debbie Harry herself congratulating them on their wedding day. What a wedding present!

And probably the best Xmas present in the world ever was in 2016 when Clem Burke came along to a Bootleg Blondie gig and actually got up and played drums on stage with the band! He said afterwards that watching and playing with Bootleg Blondie was very emotional. Well Bootleg Blondie was very touched by Clem’s presence!!!

In May 2017 Bootleg Blondie had the unbelievable honor of being mentioned on Blondie’s 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’.

Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t-shirt with more holes than t-shirt! Debbie's pride & joy is her guitar which she plays at every show and is signed by all the Blondie   members.

Debbie Harris is the niece of the celebrated singer and actress Shani Wallis who played Nancy in Lionel Bart’s musical film 'Oliver'!

‘Good luck with your show!’ DEBBIE HARRY

'Playing with Bootleg Blondie was very emotional' CLEM BURKE

‘Thank you for your support’ CHRIS STEIN

'Hey Debbie and Andy congratulations, rock the house!' DEBBIE HARRY AND BLONDIE

Limehouse Lizzy

Limehouse Lizzy

Rock Burger & Sides Night

Thursday 19th April

Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.

From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 21st year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.

Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2015, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!
