APRIL 2021

ABSOLUTELY delighted to announce we have been added to The Chameleons rescheduled UK Tour for 2022 with the added bonus of The Membranes as the tour support. The band will be playing the Westgarth on Sunday, 13th February, 2022, and doors will open at 6pm and finish around 10pm. The band will be performing their second album live, one that they recorded to get away from Statik Records plus some classic tracks from their back catalogue.

I would like to publicly thank Mark Burgess for his help in us securing a date with them and also their UK agent Ed from Spider Touring Agency who worked with me to help us in getting the band to come to Middlesbrough.

The Chameleons are a band I have been trying to get for the past eight years as their debut album 'Script Of The Bridge' was never off my record player back in the 1980s.

THE WESTGARTH WONDER is set to take place on Saturday, 4th September at 4pm providing we can operate without a reduced capacity for being an indoors venue.  This event was planned for last year to celebrate 10 years of promoting live music but we had to cancel because of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

We have already had acceptances from Dead Objectives, Klammer, Tim Loud (solo) and Slalom D who are providing the back line.  We are waiting to hear back from The Membranes to headline the event and Modern Hinterland are set to replace Headsticks who had an outdoor festival invitation offer they could not turn down.  Headsticks will play for us another time when things are more stable.
