Have your say

Over the next six days, The Cellars at Eastney boasts a gig line-up that ranges from soul, indie and acoustic pop to a 1960s tribute show.

First up, tonight, is local singer-songwriter Kelly Woods.

She’s worked with Brian Eno and Damon Albarn and played at famous venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott’s Bar, Cargo and Proud Galleries.

Her gospel, soul, disco and house influences create an upbeat, funky set from her 2012 debut EP, Your Devotion.

Then, tomorrow, 60s pop tribute band Ready Steady Go! come to The Cellars.

The five-piece now features female vocals from Gemma Elton alongside Steve Hampton’s lead vocal and guitar.

The band have revamped their set too, with soul classics from Gemma including Chain of Fools, It Takes Two and River Deep Mountain High joining their singalong favourites.

Next, on Sunday, it’s The Upload Tour, featuring Dave Giles, Bribry, Eddplant and Tom Law. Dave’s last two Cellars shows were sell-outs, now he’s back with more acoustic pop and three YouTube sensations in tow on their debut UK tour.

Finally, Wednesday sees the return of Nudybronque.

This Swindon indie-pop trio released their second EP, Bottled Blonde, a year ago and have been gaining interest on the radio.
