The Monochrome Set
The Monochrome Set
The Monochrome Set consist of, original Monochrome Set members, Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums, The Monochrome Set formed in 1978, and were heavily influential in the ‘post-punk’ scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk.

The band’s early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels’ well known ‘Pillows and Prayers’ compilation.Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.

After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing five new, critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, ‘Maisieworld’, on the German ‘Tapete’ label in February this year.

2018 sees the 40th year since the band formed and they will be gigging worldwide to celebrate this.
The JetBeats
The JetBeats
The JetBeats are a vintage Rock & Roll combo from Grand Rapids. The members were brought together over a common obsession with the savage early 60’s Rock&Roll sound, incubated in the British beat sound of the early 60’s and into the British Invasion. The group features Guitarist/Vocalist Morgan May Moallemian (The Deans), Bassist/Vocalist Ben Erhart (The Official Theives, Glen Danles), Guitarist/Vocalist AJ Dunning (The Verve Pipe, The Cones), and Drummer DJ McCoy (Delilah DeWylde & The Lost Boys). The group's mission is to reintroduce the world to the raw excitement of early 60’s style.
