Sunderland’s Independent venue celebrated its 16th birthday of bringing music to my home town of Sunderland. The night featured 7 bands performing on stage with a packed line up of the best talent around at the moment.

The first act to perform and kick off the night was Lottie Willis, singing her heart out with her beautiful melodic voice and her smooth piano that captivated the whole crowd who just listened to her amazing voice.

The second artist to perform were Pud, also know as Eve Cole, who was performing with her full band getting the whole crowd dancing and singing along to their music spiced with the addition of a saxophone along with the pounding drums and electric guitar riffs.

The third up was the mesmerising Elizabeth Liddel who also brought along a full band that enhanced her beautiful voice and piano playing that had the whole crowd dancing to her music.

Bodacious took the stage by storm with their unique sound giving the crowd a good time dancing and singing along to the music. Casual Threats took the stage then and blew away the crowd with their heavy wall of sound and heavy fuzzy bass with loud drums, they had the whole audience going crazy and dancing all over the venue.

The sixth band to perform were Ten Eighty Trees who owned the stage as they always do with their heavier wall of sound from distorted guitar riffs, throbbing bass along with loud drumming making the crowd’s ears bleed with their loud music.

Final band of the night were Club Paradise who finished the birthday celebration’s off with a bang. This is a band that always impresses me when they perform. You are always guaranteed an awesome show and tonight was no different as they swept the crowd up who were dancing and singing along to the music.
