Hometown Gig For Two Bands // This Saturday

This Saturday at the Lincoln Imp two of Scunthorpe’s homegrown bands will be taking to the stage. Different Oceans now based in Manchester will be headlining the show. Supported By The Voques, who rarely play their Hometown of Scunthorpe and are well-known on the Sheffield gig circuit. Lizzie Goddard will also be performing at the start of the night to kick of proceedings.

Different Oceans are a 3-piece band who formed in Scunthorpe. They consist of James O’Roarty (Bass/Vocals), Andre Ilkiw (Guitar), and Olly Tandon (Drums).

Writing and performing original tracks, they’re thought to be somewhere between the soulful sound of Vintage Trouble and the riff-driven post-Spiders from Mars sound of Glam Rock.
They have performed at venues such as The O2 Ritz and The Adelphi Club, whilst also sharing the stage with Manchester’s ‘Cabbage’ and ‘The Strawberries’.

The Voques

The second band from Scunthorpe are The Voques. The band are relatively new and in that new formation you will see former member of band Dirty Sterling, Jonni Mcgrath.

The 4-piece recently released a track called “Easier Said Than Done” with a video to accompany. It’s a song that everyone can dance to. This band has a real Britpop flavour. It’s a pretty catchy song with a happy and upbeat tune. The track has been well produced with vocal effects and jangly rhythm throughout. There isn’t a massive amount of information about the band online but I did find a couple of track reviews.
