Mellowtone present an intimate night of music and spoken word, with The Pelican Band, Muireann, Sam Batley and DJ Richie Vegas.
The Pelican Band
Songwriting duo Sean Butler (Sonic Hearts) and Andy Campbell (previously of The Tenements) create beautiful music, like Sparklehorse mixed with Everley Brothers. Country inspired, folk inflections, and filtered through a Wirral Instagram filter. Live, they play with members of Eyesore and the Jinx and Loose Moose String Band.
Their aim? To sound like a beautiful death.
Biog- Ex-Sniper for the Salvation Army. These are words from the electric stairs and the night bathing Siglow’s morning. Hung, drawn and quartered. Pocket editions not available.
Irish songstress and music-maker, Muireann has been lending ‘headturning‘ vocals influenced by her Co.Wicklow heritage to the bands of Liverpool, The NorthWest & London for the last decade. Now, she embarks on a solo adventure of her own..
“A voice which could have you welling up by singing the minutes of a board meeting”
Pat Carty, Hotpress
“Beautiful, distinctive tone and instinctive musicality”
Mersey Wylie, Recording Artist
DJ Richie Vegas
Richie Vegas cut his DJing teeth in his late teens – messing about with hip hop and breaks – before plundering his family’s record collections and forging a sound that includes soul, funk, jazz, afrobeat and reggae. Test Match Special is his monthly radio show, and an opportunity to showcase a selection of tunes that doesn’t quite fit with live DJ sets, explore less-travelled paths and distill 20 years of musical musings. Expect lost monsters, obscure reworkings, stubborn earworms and wickets galore.
