Family of Noise is a fantastic band with two talented guitarists that really know how to put on a show. Their performance in Leicester was nothing short of amazing, with the atmosphere in the venue being electric from start to finish. The smooth guitar notes were a pleasure to listen to and really added to the overall experience. It was clear that the band had a strong following, as the venue was packed with enthusiastic fans.

Overall, Family of Noise provided a great finish to the King’s Coronation, leaving the audience feeling energized and satisfied.

After a hiatus due to the pandemic, Ghost Dance has come back stronger than ever with a brand new album, The Silent Shout. This album is a testament to the band’s incredible songwriting skills, and it’s clear that they’ve poured their hearts and souls into every track. With Tim and Steve on guitar, Dave on drums, Phil on bass, and Anne-Marie on lead vocals, this band is firing on all cylinders and delivering a truly unforgettable experience.

One of the standout moments of the tour was a touching tribute to a dear friend who had passed away recently. The band dedicated a beautiful song to their friend, and the emotion in the room was palpable (see a clip of It Rains at Duffy’s Bar). It’s moments like this that truly make Ghost Dance stand out from the crowd – not only are they incredible musicians, but they’re also deeply connected to their fans and the people in their lives.

If you’re lucky enough to have snagged a ticket to one of Ghost Dance’s upcoming shows, then you’re in for a treat. This band is at the top of their game, and they’re clearly having a blast on stage. From the soaring guitar solos to the driving rhythms of the drums and bass, every aspect of their performance is top-notch. And with Anne-Marie’s powerful vocals leading the charge, there’s never a dull moment.
