SAINTS OF SIN
“These guys are the real deal, they do not mess about” – Johnnie Walker, BBC Radio 2
Hailing from the beaches of Bournemouth in the UK, SOS are a four piece rock band founded by brothers Sparxx and Ash Jenkins (guitar and bass) and drummer Josh Rose, with vocalist Rui Brito completing the line up.
Following their formation in 2013, the band have earned themselves a reputation as a sensational live act with a stadium-ready show. Their insatiable drive to get out in the real world and play has gained them a dedicated fan base who enthusiastically follow them all over the country. The band have graced the bill on renowned festivals such as The Isle Of Wight, Common People, Hard Rock Hell and Teddy Rocks. They have also played many notable venues including Sheffield’s O2 Academy, The Telford International Centre and packed out headline shows at The Old Firestation, Bournemouth and The Dublin Castle, London, to name a few.
2019 brought the band their first major support tour with American supergroup ‘Lost Angels,’ which features members of Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit and The Gilby Clarke band. The tour allowed the band to conquer new territory, adding to their ever-growing mob of adoring supporters. Other notable achievements include the release of two full studio albums, mainstream airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Solent, Kerrang and Planet Rock, as well as endorsements with EVH Gear, Bare Knuckle Pickups and Vocalzone.

SACRILEGE

Sacrilege is back founder members from the 80s Bill Beadle, Neil Turnbull,  Paul Macnamara and Jeff Roland.

In the early 1980’s Sacrilege played many venues such as the old Marquee in Wardour Street, London and they also played on the David Jensen show with U2 and the Stranglers on the same show.  From the TV appearance followed a UK tour of smaller venues finishing with the Marquee gig.

​Sacrilege always had a stage show no matter whether they were playing a pub, club or festival and fans may remember the real long dry grass they used around the stage, the cobwebs over the drum-kit, the explosions, dry ice and 4×12 cabinets with crosses and smoke pouring out of them – always a showcase.

You will be pleased to know that the band still put on the show they were renowned for.

Sacrilege ended when Bill stopped playing for about 25 years whilst raising a family but they are now back, better than ever, writing and recording new music in the band’s very own purpose-built studio and are touring.

GREEN HAZE – The No.1 Green Day Tribute band
Touring extensively across the UK, Europe & internationally (inc. Dubai & Abu Dhabi) – GREEN HAZE are the most in-demand tribute to one of the best rock bands the world has ever seen – Green Day!
Being inducted into the Rock’n’Roll hall of fame in their first year of eligibility, joining just a handful of bands to ever do so – Green Day have forever cemented themselves as one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
Green Haze regularly play to sell-out crowds at some of the biggest and most established venues & festivals, including The Manchester Academy, BugJam Festival at The Santa Pod Raceway, The O2 Academies & The Rugby 7s Festival in Dubai to name just a few!
“Headliner Green Haze whipped the wild Saturday night funsters in to an uncontrollable frenzy, replicating the Green Day sound to such a tee that you’d have been hard pressed to differentiate between the originals and the covers. All of the band’s usual suspect punk hits were nailed with impeccable, high octane, relentless accuracy” – 365Bristol.com
GREEN HAZE go to every length to capture the raw power and dynamics of Green Day’s music and bring it to life on stage with full 2+ hour stage show. With both the MUSIC and the LOOK, their energy packed show comes complete with costumes, fun crowd interaction, on-stage antics and all of the trimmings that make a Green Day live show so recognisable to their fans. It is this attention to detail that makes Green Haze the most authentic Green Day tribute band on the circuit today.
“Green Haze played our Halloween Monsters Ball at The Manchester Academy and had over 1,000 people rocking with a Green Day show to remember, they are a truly authentic Green Day tribute band!” – Real Radio XS
All of Green Day’s albums are well represented, covering all of the hits like Basket Case, When I Come Around, American Idiot, Holiday, Wake Me Up When September Ends to name but a few. Plus an extensive repertoire of fan favourites to satisfy even the most ardent of Green Day fans.
“We wanted a Green Day tribute for our event and checked out 5 Green Day acts and Green Haze were by far the best of them all!” – Gaz Jackson, London
GREEN HAZE perform the songs with the same energy and passion that only true fans of the original band can, this is what makes Green Haze literally THE next best thing to Green Day themselves.
“WOW what a band, these guys had it all, the sound, the look and bundles of enthusiasm. For two whole hours they smashed out hit after hit, hardly stopping to take breath!” – The Patriot

Tickets £6 adv – via seetickets & Vic
16+ show

Making their ascent from Brighton’s thriving talent pool, indie upcomers HANYA continue to show us they have a lot to offer. Named after the hannya mask traditionally worn in Noh theatre, the group was originally constructed by guitarist and vocalist Heather exploring the many faces of a female psyche; later the fully-formed collective emerged, recruiting three friends with impressive musical backgrounds to assemble the dreampop quartet.

Thanks to the group’s captivating songwriting, hazy soundscapes and thick-grooved basslines, HANYA have received a whirlwind of support across the alternative scene from key UK tastemakers in radio, including Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) and Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), as well as a plethora of support from leading UK DIY press including The Quietus, Gigwise and Line of Best Fit.
Following on from their trip stateside to New Colossus festival in NYC, HANYA released ‘Texas’ the follow-on single from their EP ‘Sea Shoes’. The track received a wash of support across the alternative realm, leading to Clash Magazine naming it “A gorgeous shoe gaze hymn” and Jack Saunders remarking “It’s a beauty, that.” During his hotly-tipped BBC Radio 1 Indie Show.
Don’t miss your chance to catch HANYA’s intimate shows before they follow-on in the steps of their peers, this group have guaranteed their spot as a band with momentum.
‘Live they create truly a mesmerising and unforgettable experience’. Clash Magazine.

“What Hanya do incredibly well is performing musical u-turns. Their songs may start off as an earnest ballad then – BAM! it’s a full-blown post-punk rager.” The Quietus.

“All-consuming, addictive offering…drenched in sublime shoegaze” Line of Best Fit.
