GALLERY OF PREVIOUS ACTS
Our MONTHLY ACOUSTIC NIGHT at Corby's excellent Rooftop Arts Centre has in recent years become Kontra Roots Club's "sister" event, presenting quality live music to enthusiastic listening audiences.
The event runs on the last Wednesday of the month with excellent Northants acoustic roots five piece, THE RANTS, hosting the event and playing an opening set as well as providing top quality sound. We book a wide range of acts, both local, regional and from across the UK, normally featuring either two guest acts or a single act playing a lengthier "concert" slot.
As always, we start at 7.30, admission is free, and a licensed bar and food is available.
Rooftop Arts Centre is now at 27 New Post Office Square, Corby, NN17 1PB.

OUR RESIDENT BAND THE RANTS
Emerging from the shadow of legendary Northants folk/cajun band, Ock 'n' Dough, comes new multi-genre, multi-instrumental acoustic five-piece, The Rants. Serving up a fabulous musical gumbo drawn from blues, folk and Americana roots traditions, the band's entertaining mix of distinctive originals, unfamiliar but classy covers and imaginatively arranged standards, is guaranteed to please.
Featuring Ock 'n' Dough's Bob Fisher (vocals, bass, squeezebox), Dace Fisher (percussion), and Robin Hillman (vocals, fiddle, mandolins), along with roots svengali / singer-songwriter Kev Buxton (vocals, guitars, harmonica) and ace bluesman Adam de Santis (vocals, guitars, good vibes), The Rants perform with wit and panache, bringing tremendous musicianship to their many styles.
