Chas Maguire regularly plays with the following bands

 

Original Music:

 

Space Elevator

Powered by the awesome vocals of the cat-suited Duchess, and the amazing guitar work of David Young, Space Elevator are a contemporary take on the classic rock sound. With nods to the music of Queen, Kate Bush and Genesis but with a definitely modern sound – great melodies, thick harmonies and screaming guitar solos all feature! Second album available now, and currently on a UK tour (May – July 2018)

The Missing Persians

Persians TopBanner

Featuring original music written by Chris Cox (pictured right – vocals/acoustic guitar/mandolin), The Missing Persians are described as “Original British Americana” which means bluesy, tex-mex, harmonies and a bit of double bass slapping by yours truly. We’ve been a four-piece band since I joined in May 2013 and been gigging regularly since July of that year and having a lot of fun in the process! We’ve just released our second full length album and you can find it on The Missing Persians Bandcamp page. Website at www.themissingpersians.com or facebook.com/missingpersians


Blake Shake

All original saxophone-led funk written by the wonderful Nicholas Blake and featuring Linda Blake on vocals. Tight horns, and a really funky rhythm section (Ritchie Ashton on Drums and Jez Cook on Guitar) – first album (Funk Biscuit) available on download very very soon…!
Blake Shake Funk


Toneheadz

Very challenging rock/blues/fusion three piece featuring the wonderful Tony Qunta (gtr & vox) and Roger Batting (drums) from Lost in Music. Great fun to play, if my fingers can keep up with the pace… (Tony enjoys it a lot more than his picture would suggest!)

Blakes Heaven

A fantastic jazz big band, playing some very challenging arrangements of well known pieces, as well as some exciting original compositions, a Blake’s Heaven gig is always great fun!

Function Bands / Party Bands / Covers Bands

Dynamic Duo

Full-on party music ideal for smaller venues where a live band would be too large – featuring Chas on lead guitar (shh, don’t tell the bass guitarists’ society)


Lost In Music

anne_chow-196

A high-quality function band performing everything from the 50’s to the present day – absolutely non-stop music from start to finish featuring lots of segues and live mash-ups keep the musicians on their toes and the guests on the dance floor. Fantastic fun to play with these guys, and they’re certainly one of the busiest bands I work with so they must be doing something right!

 Triplicate

Three-piece rock (or should that be Rawwk!) band featuring Jason Stretch on vocals and guitar, and Jerome Marcus on drums and backing vocals. A great mix of classic rock from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s (yes, the 90s are officially classic now…)


Hot And Horny

20080223-DVD-007

Playing prestigious national and international events, Hot and horny has earned its enviable reputation by consistently delivering the ‘wow-factor’ that ensures events are fantastic… and remembered for years to come
