Inspired by the roots legends of the 1940’s and 50’s, Firebird are creating new music with an energy rarely seen on today’s world stage. From artists Little Richard and Chuck Berry through to The Stray Cats, the group’s original brand of r n b pays homage to the greats. Formed in 2000 by brothers Chris and Pete, the band is dedicated to authenticity through passionate live performance. With an extensive catalogue of unique compositions and the brand new album “Screamin’”, the trio continue to perform on stages worldwide. From their hometown of Melbourne Australia, to the U.S. and Europe, 2013/14 will see the group at home on the road doing what they do best – entertaining with their own brand of rock n’ roll.
Since 2009, Land of the Giants have been pulling crowds to tents to groove until they sweat with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiasm. A brass section that will make you grin from ear to ear, heavy toe-tapping basslines and Andy Quick’s sensuous, soaring vocals will make you wonder why you’ve never danced your ass off to The Giants before.
At the end of 2015, the Plymouth-based boys brought a brand new, funk-inspired EP to the table in the name of “Surrender”. A collection of high-energy summer sounds, with just a lick of calypso, that absolutely demand to be blasted out those boomboxes at full volume.
The last three years have seen The Giants unrelentingly tour the length and breadth of the UK, spreading their fresh and accessible sounds to venues and festivals alike. From packed out stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Beautiful Days to rocking venues from Ireland to India; LOTG are well on their way to global domination.
Fresh additions to the lineup have already proven themselves beyond worth, pumping out fat new tunes and reworking previous arrangements to blow even existing fans minds.
The six-piece collective scooped Best Band in the most recent Southwest Music Awards and have been tipped by many as one of the best emerging live bands in the country.
So put your hands up, surrender, and get those dancing shoes on.
