Following on from the success of his 'Distilled' album, released on NaimLabel, Cinematic Orchestra guitarist Stuart will be trying out new material here at his Matt & Phreds residency, along with Cinematic band mates Luke Flowers on drums and Phil France on bass, with the unmistakable presence and vocal skills of Manchester's very finest singer, Rioghnach Connolly.
Rodina are back in the studio recording their 3rd release. 2012 was a great year with their remix album "Rodina and the Wolf" and two trips to the USA including a west coast tour. Last summer they also performed the opening track from the last record "Silvermine" for her majesty The Queen at the newly built Leeds O2 arena!
If you haven't already seen Honeyfeet, then we can't recommend this band enough! Raucous, rowdy and brimming with talent, you'll be stomping your feet before the first song ends! Look out for the super talented Rioghnach Connolly on vocals. That girl can sing!
The Band describe their music as "Songs about eating people! Dancing on graves! Infidelity!"
Fresh Dixie Project are 5 young gents from the South East, pumping out the most hard-hitting, chin-scratching, toe tapping tunes you ever did hear. With a mix of re vamped standards and fresh original material, these boys will break down even the most reluctant of dance floor goers. Expect vocal acrobatics, punchy drums, chunky guitar, piano twinkles and a sax on fire!
