Woking Now & Then

Woking Now & Then

We are thrilled to host three Woking acts as an acoustic celebration of Woking's music scene past and present.

Steve Brookes is the driving force behind this event to raise funds for Phoenix Cultural Centre CIC. Steve co-founded The Jam with Paul Weller in 1972. As well as a fantastic soloist, Steve is an entertaining and witty storyteller and he will share a few insights into how it all began and play some of the songs from his musical journey. His unique position as a founder of one of the UK's most important bands and a prolific gigging musician will make for an entertaining evening of music and chat.

Though a band with a post-punk/new wave slant, Woking band Phoenix Chroi has a variety of sounds, which has made their acoustic sets popular at home and further afield, as they field their poetic lyrical songs to new audiences. They know Woking inside and out and it is often woven into what they write about. Knowing how important music has been to Woking, they work hard to develop a place where it can continue and thrive for generations.

Rebecca Jayne is another Woking artist and she is ready to take the future! She released her debut single in 2016, which received critical acclaim and made it into the top 100 iTunes Country Charts. Having spent time in Nashville playing at various venues, she has been proving her talent at home and abroad, captivating audiences with her beautiful vocals and guitar skills. Rebecca Jayne has played many times for her local venue and is a supporter of all it is trying to achieve.

£10 advance / £12 on the door. Tickets are available from Ticketweb in advance.
