Friday 24th February 2017
Normally, February tends to be a pretty quiet time for professional wedding bands in Sussex, but as we wait for the 2017 wedding and party season to well and truly kick in, it has been anything but quiet for Alive!
We have had a busy February updating our repertoire with some awesome new party bangers and preparing for another busy year ahead. We'd like to thank everyone who has booked Alive to be your wedding or party band so far - we can't wait to see you on the dancefloor! We do still have some availability for 2017, so if you'd like to book us, do get in contact.
Meanwhile, Damo and Simon have been finishing their second original EP with their band Liemba. The EP has been recorded over the course of 2016 and charts the evolution of the band's sound. The EP features guest vocals from Swedish folk artist Elin Ivarsson and local folk heroine Julie Barford. Mixed and Mastered by Tim Rowkins, the four new tracks echo 70's era folk rock mixed with contemporary acoustic music; imagine CSNY meets the Kings of Convenience. The 'Burning Wicks' EP is now available online to buy - check out the bandcamp page for a listen of the title track, and you'll also be able to get it at gigs from February 2017. People of London, you can catch Liemba this coming Monday 27th February at The Half Moon, Putney so what are you waiting for?! Book your tickets now for an exclusive debut of the Burning Wicks EP.
