New project, new format!





30th September 2016 - The Catholic Club, Queen Street,

Blackpool FY1 1PU................  Doors open 7:30.

ReVerb is a new collaboration coming to central Blackpool for the first time. A unique fusion of original music and spoken word that you will be talking about until the next one.

Headline Music ActThe Blackaways are a terrific four piece outfit, mixing acoustic guitars, mandolin/banjo, electric guitar, bass and drums that really rocks the folk scene. Their 2015 album, ‘North Pier’ introduced 11 original songs, with themes ranging from an Irish Bar in Willesden to a dream about Marilyn Monroe.

Headline Spoken Word Act - Rose Condo is a writer, performer and multi-slam winning poet who hails from the Canadian prairies. Based in West Yorkshire, Rose regularly performs at spoken word events across the North. She recently took part in the Hammer and Tongue National Slam at the Royal Albert Hall, and she will soon compete in the 2016 BBC Fringe Slam in Edinburgh. Rose will perform her new solo spoken word show, ‘How To Starve An Artist’, at the PBH Free Fringe in Edinburgh.

In support - Shaun Kennion well-known local instrumentalist who captivates audiences with his sublime guitar work whether busking on the streets of Lytham or in a concert hall.

And - an ex-drummer; Steve Stroud sometimes likes to think of himself as a modern beat poet. Heavily lyrical verses spiral through subjects such as Blackpool clubbing, religion, narcotics and why Jeremy Kyle is an abomination. Winner of the Dead Good Poets' Tram Slam, he is currently working on his first publication, 'Inkclot'.
