    Under A Banner
    A homecoming to the Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton's finest rockers Under A Banner have been lighting up stages across the UK for years. They have recently supported Toyah, New Model Army and Oysterband and played prominent shows at festivals including Planet Rockstock and Beautiful Days.

    The band's focus on anthemic choruses, big instrumentation, powerful lyrics and rich vocal harmonies have brought them a cult following all over the world. Riot, the band's latest EP is an energetic feast of hard rock and metal sounds from across the decades to reflect contemporary times. Expect an explosive set filled with songs and reinterpretations and singalongs from across their back catalogue.

    The Gift
    Until recently, The Gift were regarded by those in the know as 'the best kept secret' in progressive rock. In support of their last album 'Antenna', onstage, The Gift deliver a full-on performance. Frontman Mike Morton is a trained actor and he delivers their musical stories with passion and humour. They may well be the most arresting live progressive act in the UK right now. Steve Hackett and Antony Phillips are close friends and supporters of the band, having both contributed to past albums. They each testify to the band's live power. As Mike says: 'Don't come to us for songs about cars and girls."
    There is a Progressive Renaissance happening right now and The Gift are at its vanguard.

    The Winter Machine
    This Winter Machine formed in late 2016 and released their debut album The Man Who Never Was 6 months later. The band won best newcomers at the CRS awards and played festivals and headline dates all over the UK. The follow up, A Tower of Clocks was released summer 2019 to great acclaim.
