Is life a musical #BalancingAct

If you are searching for a break from the ‘get rich quick – talent show’ saturated music scene , then you could no better than checking out Indie/Rock band @Balancing Act .

With 5 tracks on Spotify ranging from the high energy (and very well produced) ‘Before I Shoot ‘ , to the slower and more melodic ‘Rabbit Hole ‘ , think of a blend between Longview/Arctic Monkeys/Prefab Sprout and The Eels and you won’t be far off course!

Listen on headphones to hear the masterful effects , superb vocals and often angelic harmonies and you will be hooked. I can’t recall such an effective use of instruments and vocals since 10cc. I will be in the audience at #thedeafinstitute on the 7th Sept if I can get a ticket! is 4 weeks old!

Discounting the 1 week when the site was down , is now 4 weeks old and what a busy time it’s been. I have met some lovely people , had some very nice e-mails , been on a radio show twice and even landed a post as a music correspondant on #warringtonworldwidemagazine !

Ok, admittedly I submit articles for approval and subsequent posting at the moment, but who knows where it will lead and for me it’s a dream hobby. The show on #RadioWarrington1332AM and on-line via the app is a blast!! Hosted by the self-titled ‘Rock God’ DJ Gary Skentlebery, I am given the task of selecting 24 Classic Rock tracks for discussion /banter and there is plenty of it! Why not tune in and judge for yourself, the show is aired every Saturday night from 10-12pm GMT and repeated on Sundays at the same time.

In the first 4 weeks it’s been my pleasure to interview Gordon Shaw aka #Gigthepoet , Artist #allsortsbyBen , Sam Heathcote of EVENTIVE and I have the lads of popular bands #MuddyElephant and #TheRaymonds lined up.

Along with other festival organisers to schedule and interview , plus some ideas I have on the ‘back burner’ it’s brilliant to do something I am.passionate about for a change and I hope people keep checking in. Come back soon and spread the word for the arts.

#Woodfest 2023 is nearly here!

Eventive North West are counting down the days to their inaugural music festival on the 22nd July at the Woodlands Pub in Great Sankey , Warrington .

This 1 day event features live music from 5 acts, including the electro-acoustic sound of soloists Lee Egerton and Kerry Sheree , 5 piece local covers band ‘Jonny Foreigner’ , Warrington’s very own ‘The Raymonds’ and closes with the tribute band ‘No Gallaghers High Flying Birds’ . 

It promises to be an excellent day of entertainment from 1 till 9pm with food and drink on offer from the pub and all are welcome at this family friendly event.

Tickets, with a number of options are selling well and are available from Skiddle by scanning the QR code on the poster or by visiting and entering Woodfest 2023 in the search field. 

Let’s hope the weather is kind!

#Cheesefields 2023 sells out!

Unsurprisingly this brand new acoustic / electro-acoustic showcase of musicians on the 29th July at #TheCheshireCheesePub in Latchford , Warrington has sold out already! Alex and the team have done a magnificent job at this pub and the hard work continues. Lets hope the weather is kind to them , but if you are not ‘Glastonbury prepared’ you can always pop inside for #NitsThaiFood . Have a great day folks and check back in here for a new post when it’s all over.

Start time is 2pm.

Is#Warrington the next music town?

Now , I’m bound to say it is because I live here but here’s the thing .

1. #Warrington hosts a major festival – The Neighbourhood Weekender . Ok , so there is no camping but that’s only because it lies in a heavily built up area. 2. #Warrington hosts #Creamfields , another big event for the ravers and they come far and wide! 3. Warrington hosts #Glastonferry – a well attended event with some excellent tribute bands on show. 4. A Warrington local pub #TheCheshireCheese has now launched it’s own mini acoustic/electro acoustic festival for original music! Fantastic … 5. The town and surrounding villages host several open mic nights throughout the week and the pubs and social clubs have plenty of live music on offer every weekend , not forgetting the prestigious Parr Hall which has seen many headliners perform there.

With access to the town from all directions and 2 train stations , plenty of eateries and bars in the town of various types , is #Warrington experiencing ,and perhaps leading , a live music revival after the heady days of Mr Smiths and Hit Man and Her?

Come along and find out folks!


None of your Red Leicester or Cheddar on offer here but if you are fan of the acoustic sets and original material ( might be a few covers…..) then this could be for you . 2pm start on on the 29th July @thecheshirecheese pub in Latchford , Warrington WA41JH. Wristbands go on sale at the pub on Sat 1st July for £2! so come along and support your local musicians and some very fine visiting guests as well! Should be a great day and tickets will probably sell out quickly . #KeepMusicLive

So , who are #MuddyElephant ?

Really excited about our first band to be published on the site . The nice lads of #MuddyElephant have kindly agreed to a chat and a pint about their music , dreams and desires at #Cheesefields when they play an electro-acoustic set . Come back to us soon, but in the meantime check ’em out on #Spotify .
