Academy 2

Forming in Earlestown in 2017 and grew up together in the shadows of two huge North West neighbours, Manchester and Liverpool, The K’s are proving that things can in fact actually grow in the dark.

After watching a video of The Jam performing ‘In the City’ live at the Circus, vocalist/rhythm guitarist Jamie Boyle and bassist Dexter Baker were inspired to pick up guitars and see what noise they could make themselves.

The K’s were born and soon after drafted in experienced lead guitarist Ryan Breslin following discussions at an after-party they had all attended. A search for the right drummer was on to complete the vision. Almost immediately up stepped Jordan Holden, a young bespoke drum maker who’s energy and precision had heads nodding in approval right from his first rehearsal.

After taking Manchester by storm selling out Jimmys, Deaf Institue, Gorilla and then Academy 2, the band’s first UK tour also resulted in sell outs across the board, finally selling out The O2 Ritz, Manchester in just 3 weeks and then announcing a headline show at the Iconic Manchester Academy 1 for 2020.

Cloudbusting - The Music of Kate Bush

Friday 29th October

Academy 3

‘If you missed seeing Kate herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing!’   Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2

 

Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC ONE as one of the most authentic tributes in the world. Their passion for Kate’s music has won over sceptical fans everywhere, challenging perceptions of what a tribute band can be and resulting in sell-out performances across the UK.

 

‘There can only be one Kate Bush’ says vocalist Mandy Watson, who never attempts to mimic Kate on stage. ‘When you sing her music the characters in the songs take over - they are what you become, not Kate. We're just fans, amazed at this opportunity to perform this music we love so much’.

 

Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows 40 years ago.

Running Up That Hill, Wuthering Heights, Hounds of Love, Babooshka, This Woman’s Work, Wow… Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for Kate’s music once again in 2020 their new show featuring all the hits you’d expect as well as many songs you wouldn’t! Accompanied by eye-popping visuals that highlight the drama of Kate’s music, a Cloudbusting concert is an event no Kate Bush fan will want to miss. In the words of Kate herself, ‘We’re Cloudbusting, daddy!’

Bursting from the streets to the radio one playlist, picking up plaudits from Clashmusic, Billboard and a number of international music blogs along the way Glass Caves have built a following across the North of England busking from city to city.

Glass Caves fuse agitated rhythms and yo-yoing guitars with vocal harmonies that splinter then soar through their songs. The band draw from a number of classic international influences and put them through a very British filter resulting in a perfectly formed morsels of ballsy alt-rock.
