VIRGIL AND THE ACCELERATORS PLUS SUPPORT FROM BURN MARILYN FRIDAY 2ND MAY 2014 AT THE MARLOWE STUDIO, MARLOWE THEATRE, THE FRIARS, CANTERBURY KENT CT1 2AS

At 14 Virgil joined his fathers (Hendry) band ‘The Accelerators’. Virgil soon began to shine. Realizing the potential Hendry and fellow band member Hugh Morgan (OBE) had the foresight to get Virgil with musicians of his own generation. Thus Virgil and the Accelerators was born. Brother Gabriel was an obvious choice for a drummer.
In subsequent years the band have won much applause and accolades including
Classic Rock Magazine ‘Best of 2011’
Blues Rock Review  ‘Best albums 2011’ 2nd only to the Black Keyes’
Also in 2011 their CD The Radium was released. Very strong all original and extremely well received. Endless 5 star reviews and plentiful radio airplay.
A relentless touring schedule with big names such as Michael Schenker, Uriah Heep, Johnny Winter and  Wilko Johnson has seen the band gaining a solid and  loyal fan base.
Late 2013 saw the band recording their 2nd album with legendary Grammy nominated producer Chris Tsangerides (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Bruce Dickinson etc). A rising band not to be missed http://www.virgilandtheaccelerators.com/

The evenings support is from ‘Burn Marilyn”
On November 6th 2013, Burn Marilyn were featured in National music magazine KERRANG! as their “Local Heroes” of that weeks issue which was a major milestone for the band.

The Bubble Clubs Presents, Friday June 13th………………. ‘A Triple Header of Ones to Watch’, featuring ‘Will Varley’, ‘Funke and The Two Tone Baby’ and Wildflowers’, Marlowe Studio, Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury —  

TripleBill 130614

THE BUBBLE CLUB PRESENTS…….A TRIPLE HEADER OF ONES TO WATCH ON FRIDAY JUNE 13TH 2014 AT THE MARLOWE STUDIO THE FRIARS, CANTERBURY KENT CT1 2AS

‘The Bubble Club is delighted to be presenting three of its favourite, previously promoted, up and coming artists.

‘Will Varley’ is a 26 year old folksinger/ poet/ storyteller and novelist from London. After growing tired of London in 2010 Varley moved to Deal and there along with a number of musicians helped to set up Smugglers Records. Varley’s live performances have become more and more anarchic over the years. Audience interaction, surreal improvised comedy between songs and chaotic stunts like playing two songs at the same time are now more often than not included in his shows, though he will just as quickly deliver a melancholic and heartbreaking ballad or a fiery protest song as he will a shaggy dog story or an amusing talking blues.

‘Funke and The Two Tone Baby’, residing in the Medway Delta, Is a one-man mechanical blues band, a ‘self-contained festival’ and one of the ‘hardest working acts’ on the independent live circuit! Creating a blues folk mix with a technological twist and having been compared to a uniquely experimental, multi-instrumental mash-up between
Bob Dylan, Jack White and The Hitcher. Funke will audibly assault you and you’ll be coming back for more!

‘Wildflowers’ Put together in April 2012 by Siddy Bennett the 22-year old Brighton-based, lead singer and chief songwriter. The line-up includes Siddy’s sister Kit Bennett on vocals,
accordion and Hammond Organ, James Ashbury, on vocals, guitars, mandolin and banjo, and Kendal Sant on vocals, harmonica and acoustic guitar. A recent review called Wildflowers “The bastard children of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles”. Wildflowers songs are filled with great lyrics, tempo’s and harmonies, with a hint of the Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter scene of the late 60’s.This spring they have been wowing audiences at SXSW in Austin Texas

These three acts really are ones to watch in 2014, come along and find out, you will regret it if you don’t.
