This three piece are definitely going to being a few smiles to the attendees of the Six Towns One City Carnival.

There’s no backing tracks here, with a full live backing band with the whole nine yards, drums, guitars a few saxophones (you know how it goes) all topped of with some really refined vocal, you’ll kick your self if you miss out on this act.

With a mix of original work and covers, there’ll be something for everyone.

Take a look  at one of the band many proir performances and take a sneak peek of whats to come.

Make sure you get down to the main stage in plenty of time to see these guys (and bring your rastacap if you’ve got one!)

With venues like The Underground and The SugarMill in the heart of the cities center, it wouldn’t be right for a event featuring live music in our fair city not to feature at least one decent indie rock band.

Worry not. Our third act to be confirmed for the Main Stage at the Six Towns One City comes in the form of The Phoenix Band.

This instrumental six piece discribe there sound as, “space age intergalactic psychedelic folk, rock, country, beat and funk backed by many a tasty sample.”

Check out there sound, and judge for yourself on the The Phoenix Band’s MySpace page

When these guys grace the stage, you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between Hanley Park and the heady summer delights of Glastonbury.

A stage for a (N-)Star!

Stoke-on-Trent may be a good few thousand miles away from Kingston Jamaica, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying some live music with a reggae influence.

If the past few days are anything to go by, the summer time  sadly on it’s way out. We’re hoping that Akeem Jovani’s performance on our main  stage will entice the sun out.

Performing on a regular bases in night club hot spots around the country, Akeem will definatly not disappoint.

With influences,  from artists such as Elephant Man, Beenine Man and Vybz Kartel, we’re pretty much guaranteed a lively performance.

Make sure you stretch your legs around the various stalls and spaces we’ve got around the site before heading over to the main stage. We don’t want you pulling anything whilst grooving around to this guy.

Check out some of Akeem’s work on YouTube, and don’t forget to subscribe to this blog.

Calling all Music Makers, Hip Shakers and All Round Smile Generators

We’re all still working really hard to try and get everything done before the carnival.

As you were made aware by the last blog post we’ve added another stage to this year’s lineup.

After the immense talent that featured at last year’s event we have to dig that little bit deeper into our city’s talent in order to find some fresh material to feature in this year’s event.

Stoke-on-Trent is one of the best areas for live music; places like the Sugar Mill, The Underground and The Rigger are always thriving with the endless mish mash of our cities talent.

I imagine the majority of our fans, readers and followers know of some of our undiscovered talent.

If you know of any one, singers, musicians, dancers, magicians, absolutely anyone who has any thing to show case whatsoever, give us a shout.

And don’t worry, we’re not as mean a Simon Cowell.
