Nick Corney & The Buzz Rats
Rocket from Eden
Nick Corney & The Buzz Rats are fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in the Cambridgeshire area. With great support from local BBC radio including the coveted Introducing Show playing tracks from their first recording 'The Perfect Landing' their brand of melodic folk/rock/pop music is bound to get under your skin sooner or later. With meaningful lyrics, an ear for a great melody and passionate live performance their show is one to look out for.
Born out of other bands and a need to sing the truth, a mash of styles that some how comes together to create new and interesting songs. With a raw and unplugged sound with lyrics that come from the heart.
We are a four piece acoustic band from Peterborough and the surrounding area (UK). We consist of Tim on vocals and percussion, Doug on the bass, harmonica and occasionally the mandola, David plays guitar and sings backing vocals and finally Henry adds a little more colour on the violin.
Peterborough’s energetic female fronted pop-punk/rock band!
Skyfight are Kerry, Dan, Alex and Toby, they all met while they were music students at Peterborough Regional College and came together in 2012.
In 2013 the band made it to the regional final of MMG Battle of the Bands and was invited to perform on the ‘hi-jack’ tour. In 2014 they released their first EP entitled ‘Into the Future’ (available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify). The title track from the EP ‘Jumping (Into the Future)’ was nominated as one of the ‘21 songs that you have to hear in 2015’ for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition. 2016 holds a new challenge for the band as they are set to release their new single ‘Poppy’ to commemorate Remembrance Day and the Royal British Legion.
