Review: The 4tunes @ The Epstein Theatre, Liverpool

Review: The 4tunes @ The Epstein Theatre, Liverpool

In a departure from our usual musical ventures we were lucky enough to go along to the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool to watch the superb 4Tunes.

The boys from North Wales, Bournemouth, Ireland and Sunderland treated us to an evening of musical theatre, swing, pop, acapella and so much more.

This is the second time this year, the group have graced the Epstein and from the amount of people in attendance that had returned for a second outing of the boys this is obviously very popular show and it didn’t take long to find out why.

The guys are likable, entertaining and very talented. Singing songs from famous west end musicals and movies alike, they capture the audiences attention within a few seconds of entering the stage

The rapport with the audience is second to none and they embrace the o...

The Travelling Band – The Magnet, Liverpool – Live review

The Travelling Band Celebrate 10 year Anniversary with UK tour this October

The Travelling Band did not fail to deliver when they arrived at the Magnet, Liverpool  last night. A diverse crowd of older generation, hipsters and folk enthusiasts were in a great mood to welcome this versatile group of folk musicians. With Adam Gorman and Jo Dudderidge regularly switching between lead and backing vocals throughout the set they manage to bring a whole new feel to each song played.

The Travelling Band manage to make each song different. They swing effortlessly from a similar sound to ‘Mumford and Sons’ through to blue grass and then onto more contemporary songs, so much so there will be something for everyone within their set.

Playing a mix of old and new material from the new E.P...

Beans On Toast Announces album, 'A Spanner In The Works' - Out December 1st

Announcing ‘A Spanner in the Works’ – Beans on Toast’s 8th Studio album,  which will be released on 1st December 2016 on Xtra Mile Recordings.
However, as the name may suggest, this time around he’s decided to do things a little differently.

With his unfaltering DIY ethic still at the forefront of its making, ‘A Spanner In The Works’ sees Beans embracing technology to create a record simply made on a laptop, around a mate’s house. While the new recordings still have Beans’ trademark three chord folk songs at their heart, this time around each track is layered in myriad beats, loops, synths and samples, spanning an array of genres and styles, that make for an album by Beans unlike any you’ve heard before.

Album opener ‘2016’, lulls the listener in with a teasing tast...
