Vambo_02.jpg

Vambo’s inspiration stems back to the hard rock of the 70’s, at the same time they remain contemporary in both songwriting and recording.

Their material is organic, dynamic and overflowing with raw energy and power reflecting the outstanding musicality within the band. Great, original rock music performed by 4 musicians of the highest calibre.

“Vambo are our new find of the weekend. Playing the Hard Rock Rising stage alongside other up and coming artists, they really stood out and feel like a true rock n’ roll band, which you don’t see much these days; particularly at festivals like this. With big hair and shredding guitar solos, they are a great listen, and their stage presence and ability to engage an audience who are just sitting around and relaxing proves their live talent. Ones to watch!” HTF MAGAZINE - ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL

With members originating from Italy, Latvia and London, it’s no surprise BARBARELLA’S BANG BANG have such a diverse and multicultural group of influences from South and East European Folk to classic punk rock.

‘These bohemians play surf like Dick Dale founded The Meteors, but this time they’re fronted by The Slits’ Ari Up’.

By Simon Tucker [Louder Than War]

‘This is the music Wednesday Addams would have made if she grew up and started a band, full of threat, charm, malevolence and the kind of swagger most pop stars can only dream of. There’s a hand-clap breakdown and the kind of bass line that Johnny Cash would have killed a man for, all-in-all it’s a whole heap of fun’.

Vambo

Vambo’s inspiration stems back to the hard rock of the 70’s, at the same time they remain contemporary in both songwriting and recording.  Their material is organic, dynamic and overflowing with raw energy and power reflecting the outstanding musicality within the band. Great, original rock music performed by 4 musicians of the highest calibre.   “Vambo are our new find of the weekend. Playing the Hard Rock Rising stage alongside other up and coming artists, they really stood out and feel like a true rock n’ roll band, which you don’t see much these days; particularly at festivals like this. With big hair and shredding guitar solos, they are a great listen, and their stage presence and ability to engage an audience who are just sitting around and relaxing proves their live talent. Ones to watch!”   HTF MAGAZINE - ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL   https://www.vamboofficial.com/

New River

NewRiver.jpg

The members of New River were a little surprised when a one-off charity gig sparked a three year odysey leading them to play at some of London’s most iconic venues. The torrent that has become New River was set free.

Ever since New River have been building a solid following around their neo-millenial alternative tracks.

Guitarist “CyberMan” pulled together the members and the sound really came alive when vocalist “ManDog” joined the band. Adding the extra dimension of “JMo’s” sax/keyboard sounds give the tracks something different again. Of course a solid foundation is the cornerstone of any band and YelvoTron on bass, and TFDU on drums, deliver.

Having recently written new original tunes last year the band is keen to showcase those tracks with the same passion of the eclectic mix of bands that influenced them.

Our goal is to continue to develop our unique sound, share it with our audiences and play the songs you won't hear anywhere else.
