A platform for quality, signed and unsigned bands to showcase their talents.  Come and have a drink in Star Bar and enjoy some exciting new acts

The Rrrs stand for madcap guitar pop laced with sarcasm, paranoia and sex
Quirky rock with spikes of punk-fuelled pop, wicked punky riffs, songs that grab you by the throat and star presence that punches out

A much talked about band from South Wales with an alternative indie sound fronted by powerful female vocals
The infectious up-beat tempo throws you into the deep end: a breath of fresh air
The Bad Apples

We play music, thats what we do is about as far as a pigeon hole goes for these music monkeys.

Sexy, sultry and incredibly soulful, Stoner know the secrets of aural seduction and deploy them well. Play that funky music, baby!
Rock Pirates

Definitely a force to be wreckoned with. Influenced by AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Thin Lizzy they are set to get the crowd goin' whatever the situation.
  Vile Bodies

A loud, heavy, folk, blues, English rock band. Strength in the groove and songs about folk.
Tokyo Dawns

Tokyo Dawns have been playing for eighteen months now and have played festivals and done live television. Their sound has been described as U2 meet Joy Division.

"Absolutely sensational band!" Kerrang! Radio
"Refreshing & essential" The Fly
"Arguably the most exciting band in Britain right now" NME
"wow...what a song, what a band" XFM
  The Joules

Possibly the hottest thing to come out of the local scene, ever, and after a near brush with death they are more committed to rocking out than Granny Clampet.

“Incendiary!” – KERRANG Radio

“Purveyors of sleazy guitar cool of the highest quality” - Abandon

Irish with a kick... the biggest thing to hit the Midlands since the Tornado!"
