BandWagon celebrates six months of existence with a social mixer and a variety bill of recommended live music from their rapidly expanding site of musical talent in a venue to get seen at.

Fuller info;

The Traitors Club are a mod rock quartet with Beach Boys harmonies and the swagger of The Jam.

In their short existence since last autumn they’ve built a fanbase around Camden, have supported the likes of Steve Cradock and Mark Morriss and played after parties for The Rifles and Goldie Lookin’ Chain.

Their intense schedule, including a steady stream of recordings produced by Ad Hilmi of Babyshambles, has turned them into one of the busiest of new bands.

Tonight's line up are all making things happen. Next, The Traitors Club will start their own monthly club night in May.

The May Birds are are a winsome foursome purveying acoustic folk/soul vocals with guitar, piano, cello and occasional percussion. Completely DIY they have gained supports with Sea Of Bees, Smoke Fairies and more as well as playing The Great Escape and Beautiful Days festivals. The May Birds have a residency at Black in Soho, relishing the opportunity to showcase themselves in such a unique setting, intimately drawing the audience into their world.

Having spent the last few months writing, recording and performing they have just released their first single, Inside Out. It is gorgeous and sounds like spring time.

L A Salami is that rare breed of musician that the world has been craving since the height of storytelling legends like Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Neil Young.

His distinct ability to deliver a story with twists and emotions that are so incredibly human makes him instantly relatable.

With a personal history that is an early 20th century blues tale in itself this enigmatic talent is genuinely making a name for himself and is just under the radar before festival appearances this summer.

Ivory Heroes are an up and coming band with a reputation for high energy live lounge sets of the “out of this world, bonkers” kind. A fusion of musical genres creating a funky jazzed up rock out pinned together with a driving beat. Ivory Heroes seek to be more than a band as they push the boundaries of music to constantly create something new. Positive vibes oozing from their site;

BandWagon Gigs. "This mega handy site aims to take gig booking into the future. Put simply it acts as a social hub between new bands and promoters." (NME). Recently featured in Artrocker, blogs, filmed interviews and podcasts BandWagon celebrates six months of existence with a social mixer and a bill of recommended live music.

“Effectively, speed-dating for bands and promoters alike. Great idea.“ (Music Biz embassy). BandWagon promotes simplified, seamless communication between event promoters and emerging artists as they build a fanbase through playing to live audiences. The idea was born from communication from those that felt the live music procedures required better structure and transparency. It has been an instant hit and is developing into so much more for its artists, with independent festivals sourcing bills at the site and it’s social mixers attracting a wealth of media and industry. There are near future announcements and hundreds of bills already achieved.

Keep a serious eye and ear on on and their extended family of artists and promoters.
