They’ve been providing intimate soirées with a heartbeat of live acoustic music to the good citizens of Liverpool and the surrounding area for an admirable ten years. And what better way to celebrate than with a celebration!
10th Birthday Party
Mellowtone’s Ten Years Birthday Party takes place on Wednesday 26th November at Leaf on Bold St.
Doors open at 8.00pm and the last entry is at 11.00pm with the fun going through to midnight.
Tickets will be available very soon. However, if you want to claim a FREE place before that happens you can RSVP using the email address on the event page at mellowtone.skiddletickets.com where you’ll also find details of all Mellowtone’s other shows, including the next Songwriters at the Ship on 4th December, Michael Chapman on 8th December (see our preview here), and the newly announced Rae Morris gig on 1st February.
EXCLUSIVE – Lineup announced
Liverpool Acoustic can exclusively reveal the lineup for the night.
There will be an “open mic” with a song or two from a few old friends, including Ragz Nordset, Nick Ellis, Dave O’Grady, Kaya, Silent Sleep, Paul Straws, and maybe a few more…! Plus a set from Red Sails (a couple of members of the band played the first ever Mellowtone show).
To close proceedings there will be a very special reunion – you’ll have to be there to find out who!
Manning the decks are longstanding resident spinners – Beaten Tracks DJs Richie Vegas and Jonnie O’Hare, and the gig will be compered by current Mellowtone host, Monkey, and original host, stand up comedian Sam Avery.
There will also be an opportunity to get your hands on the Mellowtone Ten Years compilation CD (see the lovely cover above).
See you all there!
