Montana are an experienced 5-piece rock and soul band who regularly play gigs to enthusiastic audiences around the Lothians and Fife.
With Lindsay leading from the front and a big guitar-based sound, they have an ever-growing range of songs from Motown classics like Heatwave by Martha and the Vandellas, to recent chart hits such as Rolling in the Deep by Adele, as well as any number of rock tracks ranging from AC/DC to ZZ Top to keep the party going.
Montana are determined to give audiences a great time and have never failed to get crowds dancing - in fact, the harder people work on the dance floor, the harder the band works on stage!
Radio Pachuco came into being in 2011 as the house band for Saturnalia cabaret, an ill-fated production involving some of Scotland's great performers. As such they had to provide the background music for burlesque acts, feats of hypnosis and even a fakir hammering a nail into his head. Certainly not a squeamish band. As time has passed Radio Pachuco have become a tight 6-piece ensemble, playing a mix of swing classics, jazz numbers and songs of the 1950's. Shying away from tired crooner material, their cool and fast-paced performance is a mix between Cole Porter and Etta James, and singer Sophie Adams' voice will make you want to rummage through your grandparents' record collection.
Since 2002, Rosy Blue has proved to be one of Scotland's most popular and exciting blues bands. Led by Rosie Nimmo's smouldering vocals and Stuart Allardyce's stinging guitar work, the five piece put their unique spin on early blues through to rock, soul and modern classics as well as showing off their own accessible material. The band have regularly played at several Scottish festivals such as the Edinburgh and Glasgow Jazz and Blues festivals and the Dundee Blues Bonanza along with national events such as blues festivals at Maryport and Colme.
As well as tearing up the place with infectious rock and boogie, Stuart and Rosie also have a side project (the Rosy Blue duo) which reveals their jazzier side showcasing swinging standards and intimate jazz re-arrangements of popular classics. The band are preparing to record their second album and are getting ready for a hectic summer of gigs and touring!
