From events on Sunday

“MLUTV are pleased to confirm that the blues punk rock band from Eastside, Birmingham BLACK MEKON (PNKSLM Records) will be performing live at Bristol’s THE CROFTERS RIGHTS on SUNDAY 23rd APRIL 2017.”
“Besides this, producer and main songwriters Erik Mårtensson and Magnus Henriksson strongly improved their skills by writing and producing a vast amount of bands and projects, from the successful W.E.T. albums (together with singer Jeff Scott Soto and Robert Sall from Work of Art) to Toby Hitchcock, Giant, Jimi Jamison, Dalton, Adrenaline Rush just to name a few. This has gained Mårtensson a reputation as one of the top producers/song-writers in this genre today.”
From: Eclipse
“With “Armageddonize,” Eclipse show that they are not anymore the brightest hope for Melodic Hard Rock music, but a very solid and strong reality. They are young, ambitious and full of energy. Eclipse music is not a revival, and it’s not nostalgic. Still… it’s by far the best you can have today if you love rock music with energy, great songs, and want to hear a band that has the ambition to be on top of the world!”
From: Eclipse
“Tonight’s new quartet line-up sees Jake joined by guitarist Dan Waldman, a sensational player currently based in Bristol who has previously divided his time between New York and London. His own quartet features ace alto saxophonist Will Vinson. Leaving the UK for America at 18 he trained at the prestigious Berklee School of Music on a scholarship, winning the Jimi Hendrix Award while there
Dan’s CV on live performance and recordings are impressive and diverse; Jason Marshall, Sean Escoffery, Jally Kebba Susso, Soul Understated, Pee Wee Ellis, The Duval Project, Neville Malcolm, Rashaan Carter, Richard Spaven, Alex Garnett and Jazz Refreshed (appearing on their live compilation 'Prelude'), as well as in session with MdCL on Giles Peterson 'Worldwide' radio show.”
