FROME FESTIVAL 2014 AT THE GRIFFIN

PORT ERIN

Date & Time: Friday 04 Jul 21:00 – 23:00

A perfectly weighted three-piece dispensing precision rock full of space and dynamics with a pysch groove that’s undercut by sharp guitar, and vocal lines that never settle for an obvious pattern. Their songs progress as unpredictably as jazz, but with hints of melody that never quite get lost in the rubble of breakdown. Big on the festival circuit, these guys are not to be missed! Free entry

DAN SOWERBY BAND

Date & Time: Saturday 05 Jul 21:00 – 23:00

Dan’s music is a wonderful blues ride from seriously upbeat, rocking and dancing blues to those real soulful ‘bring down the volume’ moments. Dan Sowerby performs a set of deep felt blues and his own original material, which draws on these vibes, melding them into a sound of his own. His slick slide guitar resonates that soulful blues sound; and intricately played folkier tunes, combine his influences, resulting in an intimate and exciting set of feeling songs which grip you with the passion he puts into his performance.
