Information:

••• Hardwicke Circus •••
Meet the six-piece band who are not only turning heads with the confident glide in their stride, they're literally bulletproof.

Right now, on the highways and byways of this United Kingdom, the members of Hardwicke Circus may well be speeding to their next gig location in their customised police riot van. Even if it's a bit cramped in the back there, this band's mode of transport is as distinctive as their exciting sound, and yes, it's bulletproof. Not to mention that as they motor along, they're fuelled by their own award-winning blend of coffee. More of that to come. You certainly can't say there aren't some unusual angles to this story.

Hardwicke Circus are fast building a reputation as one of the most vibrant rock bands to emerge from the UK in recent years. Their blues-rock sound brings comparisons with the brio of the E Street Band or Southside Johnny and the dark passion of classic Doors, but with plenty of British authenticity and perhaps even a hint of Dexy's in their horn-laden attack.

With every new show, more and more fans get on board, because this is a group where there's so much to watch as well as to listen to. The focal point of it all is lead singer and chief songwriter Jonny Foster, who draws the eye as he exudes all of the 'Brown Sugar'-era swagger of Jagger. But on stage and on record, there's also an echo of the energy of such modern-day heroes as Arcade Fire.

•• Broken Bones Matilda ••
Broken Bones Matilda create an enigmatic hybrid of sound, influenced by 70s Rock to the early 90s surge of raw, post grunge bands they grew up with. Described as Nick Cave meets Fleetwood Mac, expect raspy leading vocals and soaring harmonies over well-crafted songs.
In 2019 the band played over 20 festivals including Glastonbury, Wilderness, CarFest N&S, Pub In The Park and many more. They opened for Texas, Ward Thomas and joined US Country singer Alice Wallace on her UK tour, the band are finishing off 2019 recording their debut album produced by Rob Ellis (Anna Calvi, Marianne Faithful, PJ Harvey) set for release in 2020.
