ReVerb Ignites!

21:45:00 Posted by Adele Robinson 2 comments
What is it?
ReVerb is a new live arts club collaboration coming to central Blackpool.  The aim is to feature
original live music and spoken word on the same bill, show-casing some of the North of England's best bands and poets as well as giving a stepping-stone to upcoming local talents. 

Where and when is it?
Friday 30th September upstairs at The Catholic Club, Queen Street, Blackpool FY1 1PU, from 7.30pm until late.

Why is it?
For too long, Blackpool has been a bit of a black hole when it comes to giving a platform to live performance poetry and good original music, so Lancashire Dead Good Poets have joined forces with Gillespies Folk Club to bring you ReVerb .

We want you... please tune in, turn up and support this new spoken word and live music venture. If the first evening proves to be a success, there will be more in the months to come.

The line-up for 30th September includes:
Shaun Kennion, a well-known local instrumentalist who captivates audiences with his sublime guitar work whether busking on the streets of Lytham or in a concert hall.

Steve Stroud, a local modern beat poet whose heavily lyrical verses spiral through subjects such as Blackpool clubbing, religion, narcotics and why Jeremy Kyle is an abomination. Winner of the Dead Good Poets' Tram Slam, he is currently working on his first publication, 'Inkclot'.

Rose Condo, a writer, performer and multi-slam winning poet who hails from the Canadian prairies but is now based in West Yorkshire, Rose regularly performs at spoken word events across the North. She recently took part in the Hammer and Tongue National Slam at the Royal Albert Hall and the 2016 BBC Fringe Slam in Edinburgh.  Rose will perform her new solo spoken word show, ‘How To Starve An Artist’.

The Blackaways, a terrific four piece outfit, mixing acoustic guitars, mandolin/banjo, electric guitar, bass and drums that really rocks the folk scene. Their 2015 album, ‘North Pier’ introduced 11 original songs, with themes ranging from an Irish Bar in Willesden to a dream about Marilyn Monroe.
