Noasis are back for their bi-annual Bedford fixture. Their January show sold out quickly, so get tickets now! With an obsessive attention to detail the band recreates the real Oasis experience with amazing energy playing all the classic songs as if they were their own. This is more than a tribute band this is Oasis from a parallel universe.

The word ‘Legend’ gets thrown around far too often these days, but this booking brings Esquires exactly that, with Human Rights, with the founder and current vocalist of US hardcore punk band Bad Brains stopping off at Esquires for a rare and intimate UK show. His solo material tends to be less punk and more reggae than Bad Brains punk/metal sound but he also explores rock and other musical genres. Whilst his wildly aggressive stage performances of earlier years may have mellowed, you can expect an evening of reggae and rhythm guitar from a true icon.
