Gig review // Holy Moly and the Crackers

Holy Moly and the Crackers, The Tin Pigeons and Ramble Gamble, Café INDIEpendent, Scunthorpe on Thursday 16th November 2017.

Holy Moly and the Crackers headlined a musical triple header at Café INDIEpendent, alongside The Tin Pigeons and Scunthorpe’s own Ramble Gamble.

Ramble Gamble kicked off the night with the Alternative Folk style tunes to a hometown crowd. Having seen Ramble Gamble perform several times, they have yet to disappoint with their fantastic sing – a – long story telling, which the crowd appreciated. Always a welcome addition to any event, whether opening or headlining, so make sure you catch them when you can.

Upcoming dates for Ramble Gamble include a sold out event at Wroot Village Hall supporting Dan Donnelly (The Wonder Stuff) and Jon Sevink (The Levellers) on Friday 24th November 2017. This is followed up by a return appearance at Café INDIEpendent alongside Momma’s Days Are Done and The ChrisCooperBand on Friday 8th December as part of the Café Indie Steampunk Christmas event.

Second act of the night were The Tin Pigeons, who are an Indie Folk band, from the East Midlands.  First impressions, they look and sound like a generic Indie band, but as the set progressed you soon realised that was not the case. Their set consisted of happy infectious tunes that have you tapping your feet and singing along even though you don’t know all the words.

I went from thinking I wasn’t going to enjoy them to becoming a fan within the space of a few songs. The band also had a great front man who knew how to handle the crowd and just smiled the whole night. The band have just released a single called “Home” which can be found in most of the places where you might buy your music from.

The final act was one I was looking forward to after hearing nothing but good reviews from people I know who have previously seen them.

They did not disappoint with their Gypsy Folk Rock tunes that had the crowd in attendance wanting more.

Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne, this band had members who played a wide variety of instruments including trumpet, trombone, accordion and fiddle, alongside guitars and drums.

Fantastic vocals from the lead female singer Ruth. Who also played the fiddle and a great lead man in Conrad, who played the trumpet, guitar and sang whilst dancing and trying to entertain the crowd, a fantastic band performance from everyone involved.

Alongside The Moods, they are one of my personal favourite new bands I have had the opportunity to experience live as part of the Scunthorpe Nights team, so try and catch them if you can.

Holy Moly and the Crackers are currently promoting their new album “Salem”, their Christmas single “Punk Drunk Xmas Eve” as well as finishing off their current tour.

They are also currently having their current single “Let Go” featured on Radio X.
