A Band Called Malice (“Malice”) was formed in the early Summer of 2017 by Andy Coultas with the help of Jo Adams (of Their Music Rocks). Andy, a lifelong Jam fan who has over 12 years experience of recreating the “Paul Weller” role, was keen to create a band that he felt had all the essential elements of a Jam Tribute including high octane energy, angst, aggression, passion, vocals, musicianship and the look of The Jam.
It took 6 months of planning and looking for the right musicians before the band played their debut gig in Sep 17..
Malice’s rise in popularity in the tribute world has been nothing short of remarkable, in 2018 the band played over 70 gigs gaining a National Tribute Awards nomination, being officially endorsed by Lambretta Clothing of Carnaby Street, and having no less than a 1/4 of a million views on their video of the street performance at Carnaby Street in November 2017.
If you are thinking of booking the band or attending one of the band’s gig, you’re guaranteed to be taking right back to the late 70s, early 80s with an authentic performance of single releases and album tracks from The Jam’s early Fire & Skill years, through to their very last release.

For decades the Portland has been an essential part of the Cambridge live music scene welcoming local, national and international acts of all genres and backgrounds to play in our dedicated 200 capacity venue space.
Whether you are in a band and are looking for a venue to hold your own gig or are looking for a modern space to hold a meeting or gathering we can cater for groups of all sizes and requirements.
We have a full in house PA system and lighting with experienced sound technicians available to make sure your event sounds and looks great. The venue also has it’s own full-service bar, air conditioning and ‘green room’ space.
For smaller events we have 2 separate bars and a courtyard garden that can be hired independently.
Due to the age of the building the Portland is not easily accessible by wheel chair but we will endeavour to provide any help we can. Generally entry to the venue and public bar is no problem.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
