THE TRAVELLING BAND:
Manchester 6 Piece, The Travelling Band take influence from folk, county, psyche and rock before filtering it through their own sunshine-POP sensibility. On their debut album, ‘Under The Pavement’, rarely has a British band of recent times sounded this fresh and timeless, here is a band who excel at sounding happy, sad, frustrated, and vulnerable, often at the same time, and their best songs, whether they're fast or slow, feel like they're bursting with energy and wisdom.
Winners of the Glastonbury New Talent competition 2008, The Travelling Band's live show is a feel-good tour-de-force. Swapping instruments, inspiring audience participation whilst shifting effortlessly from heartfelt ballads, through psychedelic sing along’s to classic pop tunes, their’s are shows where no-one leaves unconverted.
Fed up with everything on the radio and a life on the breadline, they found Eel Pie Islander Chris and set off to play songs the likes of which had not been heard since the rug-cutting glory days of Syd Barrett, Los Gatos Salvajes, The Kinks, Thee Milkshakes and many more. With a simple drums, bass and guitar setup they wish to play to anyone who will lend an ear, that they too may vibrate in the mind of the one true God whose name is love; grooving as one to the music of yore.
Recently toured with Paul Weller around the U.K.
Echotone are Lee, James, Mel and Paul, from Essex. The 'Tone are becoming heard and talked about in Essex and London. Three part harmonies, catchy melodies and killer tunes are their stock in trade. The have an electic blend of folk and rock...frock, if you like.
After the bands have gone off stage, NME DJ and ex XFM dj Iain Baker will be spinning the discs for you to shake your bones till 2am!!
Thank you, kind people
