FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Live Music Project
Saturday 29 March, doors 7.30pm
Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans AL4 0JQ
Tickets: FREE (Donations welcome)
Our first spring gig will be headlined by Nick and the Sun Machine who are fantastic supporters of the project. Join us on Saturday 29 March for a great line up, including The Maida Vales, Garry Smith and young singer/songwriter Hope Russell-Winter.
A great set is always guaranteed from Nick and the Sun Machine, a folk/rock/pop band from St Albans. Well-known and respected on the local music scene, their sound is influenced by contemporary innovators such as Animal Collective and Wild Beasts, but also the inventive, angular pop of Blur and XTC and multi layered harmonies of Fleet Foxes, Midlake and The Beach Boys. They recently supported Toploader and have just released their new album Wide Lying Smiles.
The Maida Vales are an exceptional four piece original/cover band based in London and South East. Their refreshing approach to music sees The Maida Vales avoid the usual suspect sounds that we have all heard time and time again. Instead, the band favour the more eccentric tones and feel good numbers of the early Stones and Kinks, to the raucous onstage madness of The Libertines.
Garry Smith is a resonator wielding slide guitarist who denies being a Blues singer. He sings about middle aged lust, British social history and his youth. If time permits and the mood takes he may do a bit of Robert Johnson. Or Richard Thompson. Or Tom Waits. Then there may be instrumentals….
We’re really excited to introduce Hope Russell-Winter. Just 14 years old, Hope is an emerging young talent from St Albans. This will be her first live performance but we’re sure you’ll hear a lot more from her!
Saturday April 26 is The Live Music Project’s 1st birthday bash! Come and help us celebrate the project’s success and amazing first year. Details coming soon...
