Punch the Sky



Punch The Sky are a World-Rock Band based in Birmingham who have made it their mission to get audiences jumping, singing and dancing across the UK.  

Their unique, loud and thrillingly energetic live shows take the audience through an infectiously fun rollercoaster ride of sexy sax lines, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, thrill-seeking solos and virtuosic versatility. 

Georgia & Vintage Youth

Georgia is just 22 years of age! ..... "Essex Girl with a big voice, big blonde hair and a cool little jazz band called The Vintage Youth"...according to her BBC Introducing profile. Her retro jazz/swing style of music is both vintage and fresh, hence the name of the band. BBC Introducing Essex have taken a keen interest in Georgia following her Brentwood Festival performance supporting ‘Squeeze’. She hasn't been on the music scene for very long since performing live at the NEC Birmingham (UK) and gaining 2nd place ahead of 9000 other hopefuls in July 2015. Her solo and acoustic rendition of a re-written Rodgers & Hammerstein piece "My Favourite Things" during that final was awesome and inspiringly memorable. Since then she has written her first album, released her debut Jazz based EP "The Girl", follow up Ska EP "El Reco" (which featured Neville Staple, The Specials) and Jazz/Funk Soul inspired EP Go FUNK Yourself. Georgia and her band now gig regularly all over the UK and are being played regularly on BBC Radio. (BBC Radio 2 BBC London, Essex, Kent, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and many more including BBC Wales. Georgia's appearance on Vintage TV (Virgin 343, Sky 369, Freeview 82) for their Christmas sessions special Dec 2017 was truly memorable and a new compilation EP titled 'Remember Brick Lane' has attracted fans in Germany, Australia, Japan, New, Zealand and America with 'Glory' (a track from that EP) being nominated record of the week by BBC Cornwall.

Peerless Pirates


Peerless Pirates hail from middle England – the pastures of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire serving as their stamping ground.


Their sound is a rollicking, roustabout mix of classic 80s energetic indie, sea shanties, rockabilly, surf-rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. “Rum-soaked fun” is a phrase often – and justifiably – bandied about. If you’ve forgotten the time when indie sounded fun, here’s your chance to get re-acquainted.



Halvar are a group of young teenagers who have been storming around the Home Counties impressing audiences with their musicality and professionalism.  They play everything from Chuck Berry to Foo Fighters, Stevie Wonder to Green Day and also write their own songs which they now perform regularly in their sets.

They have just been in the studio to record some of their own material which was part of a prize they received after winning the XYZ Battle of the Bands competition at Beaconfest earlier this year.

El Bronson

The brothers are known for their unique stage show fronted by the oldest brother (supposedly!) Jorge, who is a world famous 'Luchador' (masked wrestler) and has never been beaten in or around the ring!

The brothers play a blend of dance/rock/pop/drum'n'bass with a moist serving of comedy.

Awesome musicianship, drop dead gorgeous men and the promise of a free T-shirt make these boys a crowd favourite whichever swing party or festival they play.


Gracias to you all.


Bless you and may your wind always smell of chocolate and melted caramel.

Public Service Announcement


The Public Service Announcement story begins back in the early eighties when Pete joined John in Wycombe based band Basta Roc. Basta enjoyed playing with bands such as The Alarm, Tenpole Tudor, The Addicts in classic venues like Friars, headlining the Nags Heads and playing London’s infamous 100 Club, Mean Fiddler and the Bull and Gate

Old Swing


London based trio Old Swing formed late 2016 and have hit the ground running with their anthemic, synth-soaked indie pop sound. After cutting their teeth in venues across the UK they have held no punches with their single 'Time', produced and mixed by Sam Winfield (Fickle Friends, Amber Run) premiered with high acclaim on BBC Introducing.

"Drenched in synth and packed with indie-pop hooks, Time has the perfect balance of pop energy and mellow emotion to provide a dreamy, laid-back indie pop sound which is sure to earn Old Swing the recognition they deserve." - One Great Song

The shimmering warmth of recent single, 'Time', is gaining Old Swing plenty of attention including a recent feature on BBC Music Introducing, and it is easy to see why. Producer Sam Winfield (Fickle Friends, Amber Run) clearly revelled in hopping aboard the band's DeLorean and tastefully turning the clock back with the track's gated snares and synth-infused layers. - The Unsigned Guide

“You’re gonna like this. It’s an awesome track.” - Gareth Lloyd, BBC Introducing
