    The all-new It Bar (where the Subway used to be on the corner by the Wrens pub and the Grand Theatre) will be hosting a weekly acoustic night!

    THE ACOUSTIC SESSION

    It Bar will not only be serving up live music for your delight but also local ales, world beers, cocktails as well as a range of "soul food" including hotdogs, burgers, ribs and wings.

    For our first instalment on WEDNESDAY 10TH APRIL we have three local singers:

    Tim Loud
    https://www.facebook.com/LoudTim
    When he's not fronting the sea-shanty, gypsy, punk band, Bootscraper, Tim can be found playing his own brand of punk infused alt-country!

    Adam Andrew
    https://www.facebook.com/adamandrewmusic
    Local folk troubadour!

    Brook Gulliver
    https://soundcloud.com/brookgulliver
    Young melodic songstress!

    Come down and check out the new venue and we'll see if we can build this night into something very cool!

    Yeah, I guess we'll find out!

    Any acoustic acts and small groups are welcome to send me links to their stuff if they think they might want to come play for us!

    THE ACOUSTIC SESSION

    The 2nd instalment is already shaping up to be a cracker!

    Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/349304305191263/

    Hayley Gaftarnick
    https://www.facebook.com/hayleygaftarnickmusic
    A Leeds favourite, Hayley will be showcasing her new band who she seems to have created by cherry-picking the best musicians from across Leeds and the north! Some people say, "Nothing in her physical demeanour quite prepares you for the richness, resonance and aching vulnerability of her voice, imbued as it is in a deep southern blues and soul not immediately associated with the north of England" and I agree!

    Chris Windsor
    https://soundcloud.com/christopher-windsor-1
    Returning to us after taking a break from playing live, Chris might look a little familiar to you if you've happened to come across any one of the several melodic indie bands he's fronted over the years. It's been a while since his last solo gig so we look forward to hearing what he's got for us!

    Tia Rhian
    https://soundcloud.com/tiarhian
    With her effortlessly beautiful voice, Tia tells stories with her carefully crafted songs. Folk and pop fans alike will appreciate the melodic hooks alongside the delicately picked chords.

    I'll do this at some point as my voice is coming back...

    But also, because I'm the worlds biggest chicken wing fan.

    Well our first Acoustic Session was a lot of fun! Songs were sung, beers were drank and giant burgers were eaten!
    I'm serious about the burgers - I saw a few of these giant fried chicken burgers get destroyed:

    Anyway, thanks to the people that came down and our performers, Adam, Brook and Tim.
    Next week should be fun coz we've got Hayley Gaftarnick coming down to play with her new, full band! There's gonna be drums, guitars, backing singers, etc. I'm very excited!

    Looking forward to next week Matt. There's talk of us doing a few songs together as well, with We died At Sea. Maybe totally unplugged, at the end, we'll see... that's providing I don't get told It's way past my bed time...

    The singer from We Died at Sea that is. The guy from Backyard Burners is a total dreamboat.
