The Vandettes  study music at Liverpool University, and all being best friends, sharing the same passion for music decided to form a band, known today as Vandettes. The band consisting of 5 really likeable and talented lads describe their music as “ Through the combination of Hip-Hop break beats, robust and driven bass lines and hypnotic guitar hooks, Vandette’s music lays the bed upon which dynamic and melodic vocal parts can shine through and resonate. Apply this to their coherent musical mobility and we have a band that is a sheer pleasure to enjoy live”. They have had a massive impact on the music scene throughout the UK, and now with recently signing to Glasgow based record Label “ Twin City records” to release their first single “Let It All Go”, they have been given a lot more recognition and support from BBC radio nationally.This includes BBC Radio Merseyside, Manchester, London, radio 1, Ireland, and Wales.

Band Review//The Native Braves ‘Rock Open’


This weekends Rock Open Semi final was a shocker result to many people even for some of the judges.

The Native Braves were one of the local bands performing on the night along with local band Ameira. Both quality performances and a strong set list.

I’ve seen the Native Braves live a few times but they particularly stood out this time the lighting and sound at The Lincoln Imp really did bring out the best in this band it was one of the best shows I have personally seen them play. Other team members of Scunthorpe Nights were also impressed by The Native Braves, with comments about the bassist and vocals. But the overall sound and enthusiasm of the band was top class.

“The Vocalist has such a wide vocal range and such a unique style. The vocals are sometimes a little haunting which adds a certain enchantment and their performance kept us interested and in the room. It’s nice that the band can go from being quite mellow to rocking it out.”

Unfortunately the band did not make it through to the Live finals

It’s with heavy hearts we bring to you the news that we have been eliminated from the Rock Open – commiserations…

You can find The Native Braves on Soundcloud and Facebook via the links below. Keep your eye out for a gig near to you.



Review//Sleeping Beauty – Moscow Ballet

aa553b1f82d0299344f7f198d5053de52edf143dAt the weekend we sent Scunthorpe Nights, Simone to review Sleeping Beauty performed by the Moscow Ballet La Classique and take in a little culture.

The Moscow Ballet of Classical Choreography – ‘La Classique’ – was founded in 1990, utilising ballet dancers from the leading theatres of the CIS Countries and the Bolshoi, Kirov and Ballet Theatres of Kiev and Odessa.

“The first thing you noticed when you took your seat was the stunning set design, although the set was very minimalistic with only 2 set changes all night, it looked beautiful and extremely well presented which certainly added to performance and enchantment of the evening.

The few props that were used where also brilliant to look at and very high quality. The visual effects used throughout the performance such as smoke and light changes where very well thought out and defiantly added mystery and excitement when watching.

I was amazed by the huge array of costume changes and the high quality of the costumes used making it easy to identify the difference in characters.

The dancers where very talented and danced effortlessly keeping everyone thoroughly entertained, the use of familiar classical pieces were used throughout. It was very enjoyable and kept us all gripped.

The baths Hall has a great atmosphere with friendly staff, it made for a very enjoyable night out.”
