Last Wednesday night on 26th November, the Head of Steam in Newcastle brought together some of the most talented emerging bands in the North in aid of Success4All! The night kicked off with an energising show from Warning! (https://www.facebook.com/Warningrockband), an alternative rock band from Gateshead, familiar to many in the local music scene. They performed an all original set with some awesome tunes, which you should definitely check out here (https://soundcloud.com/warning-1). These boys Never Stop and they definitely made us shake These Animal Bones! They finished off with some tremendous solos and an improv jam.
Next up were Semi-Detached (https://www.facebook.com/semidetachedband), a recently formed rock band from Newcastle playing ‘bright melodies and thick guitar riffs’. Headlining the night, they started off with some originals (you can check them out here https://soundcloud.com/semi-detached), featuring a unique Drum n’ Bass jam from Annie Charnley on drums and Joe Summerfield on the bass, and a couple of unique covers including Is this love? by Bob Marley and Hysteria by Muse. Will got the crowd cheering for Success4All as he encouraged everyone to donate for the great cause.
The night ended with a few soft tunes from Chloë Watson, an emerging talent, who despite her nervousness, wooed the crowd with her beautiful voice and effortless singing. The final impromptu jam of Junior Senior’s Move Your Feet, with her boyfriend Alex playing the guitar, got the crowd moving for the final time.
We raised £74.12 from the night, so here is an enormous thank you to everyone who came and bought a ticket, and for everyone’s brilliant energy! Of course, the biggest THANK YOU goes to Warning!, Semi-Detached and Chloë Watson for such a great night, and some great Music For A Change!
