  27. 27. THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTISTS from Sheffield are a high energy rock band with many influences from the classic, prog rock and pop arena. They play mostly their own material and are a highly rated and respected band from the area.<br />"Powerful, melodic rock, with excellent guitar playing and delightful vocals!“<br />Classic Rock Society<br />"Supertight boisterous 70s rifferama!"<br />Musician<br />
  28. 28. MUTZNUTZ are a five piece rock covers band that originate and play many of their gigs in the Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area. They have many years of experience between them and ensure that the audience enjoys their performances as much as they do.<br />
  29. 29. Chantel McGregor <br />Band<br />Realising at an early age that if you picked up a guitar you got <br />attention, especially from her dad whose guitar it usually was, <br />it was inevitable that she would get one of her own. So at the <br />ripe old age of three, she got her first guitar, a half size acoustic. <br />At seven she started lessons but soon noticed that not only did <br />the electric guitars have a smaller neck, making them ideal for <br />little hands, but they could also make a lot more noise. After <br />more lessons and a lot more noise, and at the grand old age of <br />eight she became the youngest person in the country to pass a Rockschool grade. <br />Now qualified at Grade Eight, the wrong “A” Levels required for a music degree course meant enrolling at the world renowned Leeds College of Music for a Btec in Popular Music where she became the first student in the college’s history to achieve a 100% pass mark, 18 distinctions. Progressing onto the degree course she became the holder of the prize for outstanding musicianship for 2006/7 on the way to achieving a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music in July 2009 and at the same time the award for guitar. This has lead to the formation of the rock & blues trio, the Chantel McGregor Band and the rest is history having performed at numerous festivals and even on Radio 2 recorded at Maida Vale.<br />
