Academy

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.

Martin Stephenson & The Daintees

'Salutation Road' 30th Anniversary + Support

Friday 23rd October

Academy 3

Martin is an extremely gifted singer, songwriter, musician and performer. Originally influenced by the punk rock era, his free spirit incorporated a musical range from rockabilly through show tunes and straight rock to the success of The Daintees, of which he was a founder member in the '80s. His early love of literature and music led to the formation of the first Daintees line-up in his early teens. After becoming something of a busking sensation, Newcastle record label Kitchenware signed Martin and The Daintees and sent them into the studio. After two singles, notable among which was 1982's intoxicating "Roll On Summertime", they release their debut album 'Boat To Bolivia'.
