Among the recent high profile losses to the music world was a local one too. The much-loved Will Croft sadly passed away in Norwich. He will of course be familiar to all fans of Discharge Lounge, Rammerator, and The Future of Music.
Two upcoming gigs are being held to celebrate his life and to raise funds for his family. The first of these is “Croftstock!” on Friday 29 January at The Blueberry.
A night of music to remember our favourite bear Will Croft & give him the musical send-off he deserves. Featuring bands that Will enjoyed rocking or laughing to plus some surprise guest spots.
8:00 T-Bone & The Horn (Comedy-funk-rap-hipidy-hopidy-sexy-soul)
9:00 Old Man Lizard (Stoner- noir/ Country- sludge)
10:00 Grimace (old school death/thrash metal)
AND FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!!
11:00 The Will Croft All-Stars
Bandmates & musical friends of Will’s play a set of covers by Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and of course Van Halen
Entry is free but donations are welcome for Will’s daughter Coco.
Spread the word & let’s rock ‘n’ roll 🙂
The second is a gig taking place at The Waterfront Studio on Monday 1 February featuring Grant Ley and friends, where all the acts taking part, and the promoter Craig of Tilting Sky have kindly offered all proceeds to Will’s family.

Grant Ley plus special guests
Grant Ley headlines a special full band show here at The Waterfront Studio as part of his UK tour.
“Another highly talented acoustic musician from East Anglia” – Bury Spy
Following the release of his debut album, Chapters, in December 2014, Norwich based Grant Ley spent 2015 touring around the UK as well as branching out internationally with a mini tour of Brazil, where he played multiple sold out shows.
2016 sees even more happening for Grant, including new releases and a tour to kick off the year. With a following that is continuously growing, as well as being championed by BBC Introducing, heads are turning to see what is next in store for this singer/songwriter.
Grant has also seen his fair share of decent support slots over the past couple of years, sealing shows with recognised industry names such as Jamie Lawson, Nizlopi, Leddra Chapman and Port Isla, capturing audiences with his heartfelt lyrics and catchy melodies wherever he goes.
Special guests tonight will be Jordan Chase, Craig Acheson +
