Factory Street Studios and Yorkshire Gig Guide have teamed up bringing to Bradford an exciting series of musical nights featuring a mix of bands and open mic floor spots where performers and bands of all genres can come together and share. This is a great opportunity for new performers to gain experience in a friendly, fun musical community and for established artists to try out new songs. A place to enjoy music, feel good and have fun.
The evening will be held at Factory Street Studios and Factory Street is a not-for-profit organisation with initiatives that support the local community through artistic musical initiatives. The open mic/jam music evenings offer musicians a great opportunity to develop and share their music in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
The first night in the series, Tuesday December 27th will be full of festive fun featuring The Troubadors and Chris Martin “The Man in the Hat”. The Troubadors are rousing, passionate and uplifting performers and this acoustic West Yorkshire band is not to be missed. Music with heart and soul is the force that is The Troubadors. Fan of the Troubadors, Mike Harding BBC 2, recently said they are “real good stuff”. They will be supported by Bluesman and raconteur Chris Martin “The Man in a Hat”. Chris Martin says of himself, “Musically I‟m a blues shouter and guitarist, playing slide and finger style and also lap style. Throughout my long and varied musical career, I‟ve both thrilled and puzzled audiences the world over (well round Yorkshire)”. He may well talk more than he plays, but whatever happens you‟re bound to have a good time. Our second evening Tuesday January 3rd sees in the New Year with brilliant Bradford Band „The Rudiments‟. The Rudiments indie sounds have a rock „n‟ roll edge drawing influence from a wide variety of bands and artists with energetic live performances that thrills audiences.
The evenings will include open mic slots, floor spots are available of three songs each. Get in touch and book your place or just turn up on the night. First come first served. Alternatively just come and listen and enjoy the music.
