OASIS By Ohasis

BANK SUNDAY SHINDIG

Ohasis got together and set out with one goal……to become the worlds’ greatest tribute band to Oasis. Ohasis have done their homework, playing the songs in the most current live arrangements, with amazing accuracy. Nailing the Oasis look was very important, as image is EVERYTHING; and was everything to Oasis. We take our stage show very seriously.

Ohasis meticulously re-create the visuals, music and atmosphere of a real Oasis performance. That’s why the band have heavily invested in the exact same guitars, basses and drums used live by Ohasis, which all helps to create that unmistakeable Oasis wall-of-sound.

The Official International Arctic Monkeys Tribute Band from the UK.

From the release of the Arctic Monkeys first album, ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', the phenomenon soon swept the UK. Four guys from Wolverhampton realized the Arctic Monkeys would become an arena band and not play smaller venues.

Formed in March 2006 from a jamming session, The Antarctic Monkeys took a big chance in which they became a phenomenon in their own right, travelling the UK, playing venues armed only with one album of material.

The success has continued and now armed with a setlist of almost 30 songs, the demand for the Antarctic Monkeys is ever growing with tours booked up Worldwide.

LITTLEMORES 'Intelligent guitar-pop with a beating heart and lyrics of astute intelligence. They say what they feel, not what convention dictates, and therefore their music carries an integrity and honest embrace that is sorely missing from most current UK guitar bands. The softer side of Arctic Monkeys; the stonier path of The Maccabees. - Highly recommended'. David Edwards - Drowned in Sound

SUNDAY LIVE feat WOLF ALICE , CIRCA WAVES , WILD CUB

SUNDAY 4TH MAY

SUNDAY LIVE

2 STAGES / 2 VENUES

KU STAGE

WOLF ALICE The single most blogged about band in 2013 Wolf Aliceare heading the way of the current Brit-Pop-esque revival that has been seeping in to the airwaves and national conscience for the last year. The London foursome captures youthful joys and adolescent angst in one farewell swoop, with breathy versus and raucous choruses backed by stuttering andpounding drums and chunky guitar riffs. Think the playfulness of Elastic with the slightly grungier feel of Garbage mixed in and your not far off. They’ve toured with last years Sunday Live headlinersThe 1975, as well as Peace, played a session for HuwStephens on Radio 1 and featured on the cover of NME, and all before releasing a debut album.

CIRCA WAVES Not even performing together a full year yet, infectious indie-pop-garage-rock weaving Liverpool four pieceCirca Waves have already caused a tidal with their firstsingle, Get Away, which was picked by Radio One DJ Zane Lowe as his Hottest Record in the World. Touted as the new answer to The Vaccines the band craft unashamedly upbeat indie-pop songs with infectiousmelodies and rousing choruses, echoing heroes The Libertines and The Strokes with jittery guitars and pulsing rhythms. The band has been signed toTransgressive Records, the home of Foals, Mystery Jets and Two Door Cinema Club, fine company indeed!

STORYTELLERS STAGE

KINGS OF LYON - BANK SUNDAY SHINDIG

SUNDAY 20TH APRIL

KINGS OF LYONS

Kings of Lyon are widely known as the best; the most accurate and vibrant tribute to the Kings of Leon...

"Spot on - Five Stars" - Q Magazine 2010

"The Kings of Lyon are the number 1 tribute to the Kings" - Stage 2009

"Four extremely talented musicians playing the best from 'Youth and Young Manhood' to 'Only By The Night' as only the Kings themselves could" - Belfast Empire 2009

Kings of Lyon exploded onto the scene at the beginning of 2009 and have been propelled to the top of the tribute ladder with panache and a youthful vibrancy that secured them an O2 Academy headline tour, a European Spring tour, a string of festival dates throughout Europe and the UK and sell-out shows in the country's foremost music venues from Ireland to the Channel Islands along with high accolade in Q Magazine and a massive UK following.

Kings of Lyon play the perfect KOL show. They have an astounding live set incorporating all of the fans' favourites from 'Youth and young Manhood' to KOL's latest chart success, 'Come Around Sundown'. 2010 has seen the band rise from a fine tribute with a hugely well respected emerging reputation to become the most sought after tribute of the year; stunningly faithful in every aspect from an inseparable appearance to their gut wrenching, soaring stadium sound.

The four musicians who make up Kings of Lyon are no stranger to success in the music industry, having played together for over seven years in various successful projects. Over the last five years the boys have performed throughout the UK for various events and functions; weddings, universities, private parties, ticket only public venues, open air festivals and corporate functions. Yet as 2008 closed the band had their most successful year so far.

The members of the band received their first television exposure as they were crowned 'Global Icon winners 2008'. Global Icon was an online competition sponsored by ‘Sky Television' which featured thousands of bands from Europe and gave exposure to the band’s original writing project, The Riffs. The competition, which was filmed and recorded in Manchester, lead to a university tour and the chance to work with the industry’s top producers; all adding to the band’s wealth of experience.

What makes Kings of Lyon so special is that they have a wealth of experience though still young; they have a great sound, which they have worked on for years, and are fortunate to have the look as well with an exciting 95 minute live set encompassing all the hits and fans’ favourites from the Kings of Leon’s last five albums.

Kings of Lyon are the most astounding, vibrant tribute to the Kings of Leon, playing an inspired and often surprising collection of Kings of Leon tracks with an energy and quality which, has already gained them a massive, enviable reputation.

The band play an untouchable, exciting 90 minute live set encompassing all the hits and fans’ favourites from Kings of Leon’s last five albums.
