The Bedroom Hour
I attended a gig recently at the Night & Day Café to watch a band I know well fromTwitter, Facebook and YouTube the band are The Bedroom Hour. The gig took place on Saturday the 10th of August 2013 at the Night & Day Café. I have to give a shout out to Harriet and Jules on the bar that evening. Thanks girls you worked hard that evening
The Night & Day Café is an intimate venue in The Northern Quarter in Manchester and well worth a visit. It is situated on Oldham Street.
This was to be The Bedroom Hour's debut performance in Manchester and what a performance it was. Also playing on that evening were The Reveres and Narcosis.
The band members comprise of Stu Drummond Lead vocals, Mark Dudleykeyboards, Dan Rider bass and backing vocals, Rob Payne guitar and backing vocals and finally but not least Lewis Cosham drums.
The band have a number of songs available to download. A particular favourite of mine being X marks the spot with an extremely well polished video.
They played a number of tracks on the night and their set included x marks the spot,Nocturnal, Submarine, Midnight Game, Heart Will Haunt and Shadow Boxer. All in all the band are headed for big things.
Their debut E.P. is available to download "Themes" and if you ask the lads they will describe themselves as psychedelic rock but that are much more than that too. They have been compared to a number of bands including Elbow. All I know is they were magical to watch and all eyes were fixed on them, as they used their emotionally charged numbers in order to keep the audience entertained.
The night was an outstanding success with a fabulous atmosphere. Resulting in a further visit to the Night & Day Café lined up for the Saturday the 2nd of November 2013 with special guests to be announced.
You will find them on
The Reveres also played that evening. They are a four piece band from Greater Manchester. The line up includes Oliver Lomax - vocals, guitar & Harmonica, Paul Hesketh - Guitar & vocals, Josh Stewart (described as a Ronnie Wood lookalike!) Bassist, and last but no mean least Tim Hewitt - drums.
Their E.P. Pale was released on 25th February this year and also an Acoustic E.P.
The band are an alternative Indie rock band with influences from many sources including The Smiths, The Rolling Stones and the Jam to name but a few. Quite an eclectic mix.
The numbers they played that evening included Riders from Zero, Chase the light,Kick your Maker, Love in Vein and The Death of Miss X amongst others
You will find them on Soundcloud.
The final band in the line up was Narcosis. This is a three piece band from Hinkley in Leicester.
