Hitting the road again in support of their soon-to-be-released second album, local band Kontiki Suite play their first home-town gig for quite some time. Their 2012 debut album, 'On Sunset Lake', attracted a host of glowing reviews worldwide, including the honour of being named album of the year on more than one music blog.
The follow-up to 'On Sunset Lake' is in the can and due for release anytime soon, so expect to hear the best of both albums at the show. Praise for 'On Sunset Lake'...

"English dreaming seldom sounded so sweet" **** - Daily Mirror.
Support on the night comes from The Wellgreen and Castanettes.
Glasgow's The Wellgreen combine classic sixties songwriting, early powerpop and psychedelia on top of vintage recording techniques to create a familiar yet fresh & original sound.
Having toured extensively over the last 2 years supporting Euros Childs & Stevie Jackson (as well as providing drums, bass, guitar and harmonies for both on their respective sets & records), 2013 saw The Wellgreen release their second album, Grin And Bear It on their own label, The Barne Society. They love writing songs, tea, blueberries, B&Q, shoes and sunshine.
Castanettes cover a broad spectrum of music, the Carlisle quintet fuse different ideas from a collection of genres to give them a unique and diverse sound. Their self recorded demos 'Live For You' and 'Never Change' were picked up by BBC Introducing with 'Live For You' also receiving airplay on stations such as Amazing Radio and appearing in the top 25 tracks of the week on Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves show on BBC Radio 6 Music.
Between and after the bands, expect to hear the best of psych, soul, rock’n’roll, blues, country and latin from the record collections of Kontiki Suite and their friends, including the inimitable Jonny Thieves.
