The Blue Carpet Band - https://youtu.be/pVHkxpstdJY A powerhouse 5 piece garage/dirty rock'n'roll band based in and around London. Like classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with New York punk and late 60's protopunk. Think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy.
Toffees - https://youtu.be/UKZRy-UWfuM Toffees are a fast-rising young band playing "Club rock" with original heavy hooks. They deliver fresh and exciting live performances featuring truly dynamic and soulful vocals fused with epic melodies and beats. Gaining new audiences everywhere they perform and have been featured on BBC Introducing, as well as live sessions for BBC Radio.
TRVS PRKNS - https://youtu.be/DF0dOy-7Z2w Punk-Metal-Grunge-Emo. From Glasgow / London but forged in Vung Tau, Vietnam by Vietnam based punk band manager Barry ‘The Saigon Serpent’ McGhee. TRVS PRKNS built up a strong following through performances in the local Vung Tau clubs and beach bars with tourists, expats and locals. Following a return to London the band have exploded onto the live rock circuit with their infectious brand of punk metal. See you in the pit.
Playmaker - https://youtu.be/asw9fK000Vo It’s been a huge year for PLAYMAKER, Radio London DJ Gary Crowley championed the band playing their track The Girl Who Thought She Could Fly, on the BBC Introducing show. And it was featured by Steve Lamacq and Clare Sturgess and was Loud Up’s track of the week. “How catchy is that!’ Gary Crowley BBC Introducing. A four piece guitar-band with a classic line up of bass, drums, two guitars and two vocals. They mix tunes with power chords and deliver with exactly the right amount of attitude to create an eclectic sound, which is both unique and instantly addictive.
