Underground Empire

Underground Empire are a band who strive for a brand new sound- utilising a plethora of influences and an eclectic palette of sounds to create something truly unique.

With elements from traditional classic rock and modern indie right through to reggae and trip hop.

Their material strikes a balance between raucous rock n roll and haunting melodic meanders.

There’s something for everyone amongst their catalogue of songs. A band for all music lovers.

Mondo Royale

Mondo Royale are a six-piece pop band, fronted by two vocalists and a little bit of vocoder. With a colourful sound that touches on Alphabeat, ABBA and Daft Punk, they’ve been known to win over even the most sullen crowd. Their latest single ‘Hearts’ is a big, vibrant, 80s-flavoured pop song that gives a good snapshot of what you can expect from them live.

“Imagine the planet of Motown has just been invaded by neon disco robots.” (Hannah Fathers, Urban Fox)

The Navettes

Dominating the Manchester music scene, The Navettes have played in some of Manchester’s most acclaimed venues such as Club Academy, Soundcontrol, Gorilla and the O2 Ritz; showcasing their energetic and infectiously catchy songs. Including a tour which extended through both the north and south poles of England.

Having been recently featured as participants in Yamaha’s brand new Revstar guitar campaign, The Navettes have used this to take their sound to the next level showcasing the guitar and their sound over their gig filled summer.

The Navettes return to Birmingham after playing a very enjoyable set for
Indie Midlands back in November.


Hazy gal making hazy tunes.



FINOLA is a 22 year old cat loving, coffee drinking singer-songwriter from Leeds based in Manchester, where she has been pursuing a career in music since 2014.

Since being in Manchester, she’s gigged both solo acoustically and with her band (Jack, Nick and Sam) at some of Manchester’s best known venues including Band On The Wall and Gorilla, and she’s gigged in other cities including Leeds, Liverpool and London.
She’s also organised, promoted and performed at her own gigs including the launch night of her debut EP “Waterworks” at Jimmy’s and her most recent single “Losing Value” at Soup Kitchen, both events sold out.

Her songwriting is personal, every song is usually a musical telling of an event in her own life, and she often shares these experiences with the audience.

some covers and maybe even a Sunset Beach Hut tune or two…
