THE MICHAEL JOHN McGLONE BAND
The Debut album from Michael John McGlone and his ramshackle band (Between the devil and the Deep Blue Sea) combines macabre folk tales of love, life and death with foot stomping British hoedowns to leave you with a bitter melancholy taste at the back of your throat.

ALEX BUTLER & THE OPALS
Alex Butler and the Opals are a band formed from members of what were already prominent acts on the Newcastle music scene.
They have came together to form something quite spectacular.
Having been chosen as Nick Grimshaw's up and coming act and the last single release reaching number 18 in the Mojo magazine chart, 2014 promises to be a brilliant year for the band.
With recent NME exposure and coverage from a whole host of European press the response to the bands pristine image and powerfully melodic music has been fantastic.
Think The Yardbirds. Think The Doors. Think The Kinks. Influenced by the best of the 60s, they have a sound that is original, yet reminiscent of the bands of that decade.
Plus a DJ set from Ola's Kool Kitchen!
The Kitchen will provide you with all you the sounds you need to get your knees up between bands. Prepare for hot fever to move your feet to a swinging beat. Steamy and very sweet for that Friday night shindig feeling!
