Maxx Palmer - Hertford based newcomers, Maxx Palmer are an exciting 3 piece. Inspired by an eclectic mix of genres there aren’t enough pigeon holes to contain Maxx Palmer. Their signature sound of organic melodies, powerful vocals and infectious guitar solos make this tight band ones to watch out for.

Joi Noir - Joi Noir – pronounced Joy Noir – are aeuphoric alt-cult-rock band hailing from Russia. The six-piece who have been compared to the Banshees – mainly due to the presence of enigmatic Russian chanteuse Olga Gallo – are due to release their new album Celeste in early 2019. The album already feels like a classic -like something you’ve had knocking around the house for years.

Black Surf - "Bridging the gap between the unorthodox breaks of Grouplove and the hook-heavy passion of Weezer, London-based trio, Black Surf are an alternative-rock melting pot.”

Matty James Cassidy - Matty James Cassidy is a singer-songwriter-musician from N. Ireland who pens and performs heart-felt, sing-along, tale-telling, rabble-rousing songs you can hang your hat on. A modern day troubadour, playing his own brand of rock n’ roll with hundreds of gigs across the UK/Europe and appearances at major festivals all under his belt, now backed by his full rip-roaring band.

Calico Jack - Calico Jack are an explosive new band from London. They play a catchy and aggressive brand of funk rock, and host unpredictable live shows that can feature anything from talented rappers to tasteless costumes.

THE SWAGGER - THE SWAGGER are an original 4 piece indie-alternative, acoustic-pop rock band from Hornsey, North London UK formed in 2011. The band consists of brothers Lee Stevens (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar) and Paul Stevens (Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals).

Late Night Legacy - “Late Night Legacy stand out as the band who could lead the charge for Yorkshire bands in 2018… you wouldn’t believe the band are on their way up rather than cementing their place at the top ” – H2N (2018)

Line Up


Winners of Radio Aire's 'Battle Of The Bands' at The Light Leeds 2015, Late Night Legacy are fast becoming one of the most sought after bands in the area and have been pegged 'One to Watch' in 2016 after wowing judges and fans with their electric live performances. Their crowd pleasing performance of just two of their fourteen original tracks at the event subsequently gained a live gig slot at the Leeds First Direct Arena opening for Duran Duran to Industry V.I.P.s, complete with follow up interview and a stripped back acoustic style performance for the Yorkshire television channel ’Made In Leeds’. With signature rip-roaring anthemic vocals, heart thumping drum beats, bass that vibrates your bones and lethal guitar riffs, the band create a rock fuelled, twisted, funked up blues which is sure to make you want to move to the music. Though heavily rooted in rock, their sound extends far beyond to utilise a variety of styles ranging from reggae to funk, blues to soul, drum and bass to latin infused grooves. Encapsulating the energy of controlled chaos, their music invokes the power, vivacity and rawness of such bands as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Black Keys mixed with the song writing prowess of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.
