Alive music event set up in November to showcase new artists in Aylesbury is proving such a success that it is now attracting acts from the surrounding counties.
New Music Monday made its debut at The Oak House – formerly Stars bar – in Market Square to give new and emerging acts the chance to spread their sound and has proved an immediate hit
Event organiser Carol Jenkins said: “I am astounded at just how popular New Music Monday has become with the music communities not just in Bucks but also Herts, Beds and Oxfordshire.
“The past few weeks have seen us showcase a number of really talented musicians playing anything from jazz to indie.
“I’m delighted that the night is putting Aylesbury firmly on the map as a hub of musical talent.”
On Monday acts from Tring and Hemel Hempstead are on the bill.
Rock punk band Silo 18 hail from Hemel and are making their Aylesbury debut after spending the past year gigging around the area and building up a fan base. They are currently recording an EP due to be released in the spring.
The four-piece features bass player Chris Aldridge, drummer Jay Aldridge and guitarists Chaz Gabriel and Richard Memczak, with all of them taking their share of vocal duties.
Also playing will be rock’n’roll covers band from Tring The Attention Seekers and a soul/blues band from Tring called L’il Bird, featuring talented young singer Katy Hood. Entry to New Music Monday is free and the music starts at 9pm.
