The rising Mancunian Indie Rock & Roll band The Haciendas will be headlining in their home of Manchester for the very first time at The Bread Shed on Saturday 9th October. A strong mancunian line-up on the night made up of We The North, The DDE’s and Bluloom. After warming up over at Jimmy’s in Liverpool on Thursday 7th October with The Montagues and Northern Revelation, the boys are looking to head back to Manchester for a debut at a packed out Bread Shed.
After their successful debut hit ‘It’s Not Too Late’ in December, they followed it up with their second single ‘Joker’ which featured as ROTW on XS Manchester and then added their third single ‘Those Are The Days’ to their collection. All 3 singles managed to make it into the Top 10 of the Alt iTunes Charts with ‘Joker’ peaking at #4. Their latest single ‘Other Side’ was released on Friday 17th September, receiving it’s first national radio play on Jim Salveson’s XS Evening Show.
The band are made up of Tom Smith (vocals), Daniel Ashcroft (lead guitar) and Steve Jillings (bass), three close friends who all grew up in Failsworth, Manchester. With their debut appearance at North Fest 2021 this year, they followed up with a headline show at Zeros Bar in Stalybridge, the perfect summer warm up before things got serious for their debut headline shows in Manchester and Liverpool.
Brit dirty rock trio, We The North, have the sound and message to awaken you from any slumber. Perpetually loud, sometimes chaotic, constantly honest, and above all truly captivating. Made up of Josh on bass guitar and lead vocals, Danny on lead guitar and Ryan on drums. They released their latest single ‘Where Is Your God’ in August to join their fast-growing collection of hits which features ‘In A World Of My Own’, ‘With A Gun To My Head’ and fan favourite ‘She’s A Dream’.
DDE’s are a 3 piece Rock n Roll band consisting of Dan Brown, John Page, Paul Gallacher and are one of the most exciting bands to come out of Manchester in recent years. Staying true to the city’s famous indie roots, the talented three piece construct toe-tapping tracks formulated around face melting riffs and anthemic melodies. They have the rare ability to give audiences the feeling they are witnessing a band on the verge of discovery, yet at the same time, feeling as if they have known them for years-like a shot of adrenaline whilst wearing your favourite old jumper.
Bluloom is an electronic producer from the small town of Holmfirth. Over the past 5 years he has grown accustomed to acoustic local live performance and now after moving to Manchester to study Creative Music Technology at The University of Salford, he is performing his original material in the lively worker bee’s city. We can hear the dramatically different influences of Razorlight, Paolo Nutini and Frank Sinatra in his compositions. His uniquely soulful voice accompanied by a bright acoustic guitar are the feet that walk the lyrical journey he takes us on.
