Gazpacho: Saturday Evening

Gazpacho

Known for their distinctive art rock that balances tense and beautiful arrangements, sinister and soulful melodic lines, Gazpacho's Soyuz furthers their experimental output.

A band who are used to seizing headlines with bizarre stories, including The Independent (UK) branding Molok as "An album that could destroy the world", Gazpacho have a holistic approach to the album writing process, imbuing each with a captivating concept.

The themes of Soyuz were born from the idea of how beautiful moments pass and cannot be "saved for later", so within Soyuz are interconnected tales of people and lives "frozen in time". Taking inspiration from a multitude of eras and subject matters, including the doomed Russian space capsule Soyuz and its iconic captain Komarov; the Tibetan Buddhist funeral practice in "Sky Burial"; the inclusion of the oldest recording of the human voice from 1860 and the Hans Christian Andersen inspired "Emperor Bespoke".

The Return Of The Whimsy: Friday Evening

The Return Of The Whimsy

Some of you will remember Pete and Rob’s Musical Whimsy playing a few years ago at Port Zelande, for the launch of our Acoustic Industry CD.

Since then Robin and I have been working on and off on more material. Noodles, songs and such like, which has built in to quite a catalogue of new music. For our next adventure we have called upon the talents of John Jolliffe, Oxford based singer songwriter and keyboard player, to join in the fun.

Our first time on stage together will be in Leicester where we shall be playing various new songs and instrumentals, as well as excerpts from Acoustic Industry, as an acoustic/electric three piece.

Please come along and see what we are about.

District 97: Friday Evening

District 97

District 97 was formed in the fall of 2006. The foursome from Chicago honed a no-holds barred style of Liquid Tension Experiment-inspired Instrumental Rock before deciding the right vocalist was needed to complement their sound; enter 2007 American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist, Leslie Hunt. She was followed shortly thereafter by one of Chicago's finest young guitarists, Jim Tashjian. With this new blend of charisma and stellar musicianship in place, their live shows over the past several years at festivals such as RoSfest and Prog Dreams II and V, and numerous appearances across the USA, UK and Europe cemented the band as a force to be reckoned with onstage, as well as in the recording studio.

In August 2015, Rob Clearfield and Patrick Mulcahy left the group and were replaced by Andrew Lawrence and Tim Seisser, respectively. The new lineup debuted in highly successful tours across Europe and North America in 2016 and 2017. 2018 has seen the band complete a North American 10th Anniversary Tour, as well as begin recording their fourth studio album, due out early 2019 in conjunction with their second appearance on Cruise To The Edge.
