Mickey 9s + support
On dark nights in northern cities, where crowds gather underground, not knowing why the atmosphere is tense and bereft of oxygen, the shamanic singer and his totemic band of intergalactic beat drifters appear and are gone, leaving behind them only a post-orgasmic sense of calm and hazy pleasure. Did that really happen? Did a masked shaman really leap from an afro of bass, forcing even white people to dance to his every word and sway?! They convert many who encounter them to their raving ways. The converted know there is a better kind of music out there: one of ecstatic rhythms and primal groove. There is no longer any need for chords and choruses… there is no longer any need for love songs or sad songs, for this music transcends Earthly emotion. The followers of the masked shaman know the way to the future. The followers are growing…
ROTU (Revenge Of the Tartan Unicorn) are a new Alternate Funk Rock three piece who are rooted firmly in the sounds of 70's funk and rock. They blend influences of Psychedelic Blues with Classic Rock sounds coating it with a fresh glaze of interesting rhythmic changes. They produce an indie quality, with lyrics playing on their energetic brand of humour which gives an immersive sense of imagery throughout performances. This combined with their strong Power Trio presence makes them a unique and enjoyable act in any gig line up or playlist. ROTU were officially formed in March of 2015 in Aberdeen, Scotland and have since released an EP, music video, recorded their debut album and have already made an aggressive impact upon the local music scene.

The Blackjack Blues Band
With the current line up formed in late 2010, The Blackjack Blues Band hail from the confines of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. The line up consists of Jonny Lawrie on vocals and harmonica (plus acoustic and electric guitar), Rick Lawrie on bass, Jonny and Rick have performed at many blues venues throughout the UK over the last 10 years or so. Keeping it in the family, brothers Paul & Simon Harmer complete the line up on lead guitar and drums respectively. The Harmer Boys have played in various acts over the years, Paul in Edinburgh outfit Garner while Simon raised hell in the Juke Joint Boogie Blues Band. Drawing on many influences from as diverse a path as contemporary artists such as The Hoax to the established Blues kings such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Sonny Boy Williamson. It sees the band at times paying homage to the much loved Surrey blues Delta of the 60's and a nod to the chaps from the Oil City Island as well.
