The first NWB showcase of 2009
NWB is proud to be hosting its first 2009 Showcase at the Pheasant Pluckers, Monday 8th June, from 7pm..
Pheasant Pluckers @ Hunters Lodge
NWB would like to invite artists/bands/venues and people in the music trades to the event (knees up!). The intention of the night is to allow us fellow NWB members to have a central gathering place to exchange ideas, network, score gigs, and a general boozy rant over the NW music scene.
If you are an artist/band and would like to play at the showcase please PM/email me (mr.nwb) with your 1st choice and 2nd choice slot time by Thursday 21st May. A line up will be decided and the bands will be informed what slot they have been given. In line with previous success NWB showcase nights artists/bands are expected to play a stripped down/acoustic performance. This dosent mean "stictly come acoustic", but it means that you will only have a 25min slot, and this will include your setup time as well.
STRICT 25 MIN TIME SLOT - if you are late turning up, then tough, you miss your slot. We'll have acts coming from different regions of the NW, so its only fair that a strict time scheduled is adhered to.
7.30 - 7.40 : Mr.NWB and Woody (Opening the show!)
7.45 - 8.10 : David Smither | www.northwestbands.co.uk/davidsmither (kermit scarf wearer from ellesmere port)
8.15 - 8.40 : Hazardous Waist | www.myspace.com/hazardouswaist (Band)
8.45 - 9.10 : The Empire State | www.myspace.com/theempirestateuk (Originals Band)
9.15 - 9.40 : The Fabulous Eggs | www.thefabulouseggs.co.uk (solo)
9.45 - 10.10 : The Big Fish | www.thebigfishband.co.uk (Band)
10.15 - 10.40 : Bandfan - Mike Smith (Solo Acoustic)
10.45 - Close - NWB Jam!
The landlord of the venue has informed me that there will be a drumkit and keyboards available, As well as PA and a couple of mics and mic stands. It maybe advisable to bring a few spares of your own.
As well as bands, I'm hoping that a few trade people will pop down, i.e. music shops owners, banner/sign makers, logo makers, photographers, lighting engineers. If you are in a trade and are thinking of popping down please PM/Email mr.nwb.
In the meantime, why not leave a comment below if you are intending on popping down :-)
Cheers! and lets make it a good un!
