The Complete Stone Roses are one of the UK’s most well-known, most seen and most successful tribute bands. Selling out venues across the UK and Ireland regularly, they have helped to carry on the music of one of the UK’s most influential bands - The Stone Roses.
The Stone Roses played a pivotal role in the history of the UK’s indie music scene. Famous hits like Fools Gold, I Am The Resurrection and I Wanna Be Adored are as recognisable now as were the heyday of Madchester and the Hacienda, the cultural icons from which the original band were born.
The Complete Stone Roses play to acclaim from fans themselves, the press, and even original Stone Roses band members.
Stone Roses Mani said"I'm all for anything that keeps the Roses' music alive. They do our songs real justice. At times, they play even better than we did.
One of the bands most recent successes was playing to a sold out crowd at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom in November 2016 (check out the video).
The Sunset Spirit are an exciting indie-pop 6 piece, bringing catchy melodic feel-good music to the table reminiscent of Ocean Colour Scene and fellow Fifers Sergeant, driven by keyboard to give them a unique sound which makes them stand out from their contemporaries in the vibrant local music scene in the Kingdom.
The band are made up of Stuart Shields on lead vocals and guitar, Shaun Sneddon on guitar and harmonica, John ‘Giz’ Fraser on bass and percussion, Johnny Kidd on keys, James Jack on drums and recent addition to the band, Mike O'Reilly ex Modern Faces on lead guitar.
After releasing their ‘About Time’ EP in late 2016 the lads have been busy in the studio working on their debut album, with the result of their hard work the hugely impressive ‘From The Top’, was released in June 2017. The 12 track long player is the perfect showcase of The Sunset Spirit sound, all killer no filler, with instantly catchy upbeat songs to light up any cloudy day and put a spring in your step. The band also released an EP "Sometimes" in October 2018.
Having built up a loyal army of fans in their native Kingdom of Fife, the band now hope to take their music to the masses, and From The Top should help them reach that goal.
Break The Butterfly are a 4 piece indie/rock band from Fife, Scotland with roots in folk rock and traditional music. Having competed in the Hard Rock Rising 2015 competition and progressing out of 13000 bands to represent Europe in the finals held in Barcelona with their energetic performances, BTB have continued to grow as a band.
The release of their well received album Chrysalis saw the band tour Germany for 2 weeks, perform at Murrayfield during the opening of the Seven Nations and feature on STV Glasgow several times. The band are doing 3 dates with Toploader this year and a few festivals, which included the recent ButeFest and Rockore. They also toured Germany earlier this year.
Combining their love for the melodic nature of classic pop and rock music with the shine and production of a modern indie outfit, Gentlemen Jackals aim to produce songs that are as hooky as possible. A tight and dynamic rhythm section give foundation to anthemic lead guitar and vocals that cut clean through the mix, giving the group a sound they likened to Bruce Springsteen jamming with Pixies.
In 2017, the band performed at numerous festivals, including Montrose Music Festival, Rockore and the Dunfermline ‘Fake Fest’. On February 10th 2018 the band performed at the O2 ABC in Glasgow in the Scottish Final of the SoundWaves’ Music Competition.
On 2nd February 2018 the band released their first EP, “The Open Door Within Your Mind”. They have previously recorded and released four independent singles – all of which were produced by Mark Morrow Audio.
The group’s success is greatly down to their DIY attitude, organising and promoting gigs, designing their own publicity materials and shooting their own music videos.
