NowThen playing at Guarana, Ibiza on Sunday night

October 27th, 2009

UPDATE – date has been changed for Sunday night – 1st November

NOWTHEN will be playing down at Guarana in Santa Eulalia port, Ibiza on Friday night. We’ve met the guys already and are great fun so we’re looking forward to some live rock n roll.

Here’s some blurb:

nowthen, ibizaPlaying together for a number of years, Rock n Roll sometimes riotous, sometimes powerful and haunting. Powerful bass lines, whirring guitar, piercing psychedelic organs accompanied by driven avant-garde percussion. Matched with all original, catchy, quirky songs that are instantly likeable and a passionate, charismatic front man. NOWTHEN are here to open eyes change life as we know it and have ONE F*CKING GREAT TIME along the way!!

Ryszard (lead singer) had always written music. He would play songs to his friends in his room on his acoustic guitar to entertain and sometimes perhaps enlighten the trippers, and think no more about it. Years went by and sick of being told he was wasting his life sitting in his room, and after meeting some like-minded musicians. Ryszard decided to join forces to give the trippers a meatier portion of the musical pie. Off the band of five went to the local studios to practice and after a while invited some of the friendly trippers to come and experience the delightful brand of powerful magical madness they created. The friendly trippers were shocked!!

nowthenThe next week the friendly trippers came again, but with more friendly trippers in tow. The week after, the same thing happened and the number of the friendly trippers grew and grew. It grew so much in fact, there was soon a queue of friendly trippers down the stairs and out of the entry! ‘HANG ON! There must be something in this’ thought the band of five. NOWTHEN were born, unleashed onto and unsuspecting world, spreading their musical message of open eyes love and freedom.

Other dimensions DO EXIST! Experience them NOW!

Ryszard: Vocals
Simon Atherton: keys / organ / paino / synths
Dave Thompson: Guitar
Stephan Swingler: Bass
Mike Thompson: Drums

Regulars at the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool and known mainly in their adopted home of Leeds as the Biggest and Best Unsigned band in town. Playing regularly at Leeds venues such as The New Roscoe, The Cardigan Arms, Josephs Well, and The Primrose. Working their way up through the ranks of Leeds diverse music scene. Gig’s at trendy underground psychedelic event ‘Freak Out’ and Headlining Leeds Record Label nights for ‘Dead Young Records’ live event’s. Word spread and NowThen were asked to play The Brixton Jamm in London and headline a 12 hour unsigned band festival in Liverpool at The Barfly in May.

nowthen, ibizaFrom there the band moved to Ibiza to be this summers resident band for CLUB NME every Thursday at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Playing alongside amongst others The Holloways / Ok Tokyo / A Human / The Click Click.

As a result of the performance here, the band were asked to play The ‘Ibiza Tailandia Full Moon Festival’ at Las Dalias. A Psychedelic set of Rock and Roll to Ballard was played with a huge mix of music to please a very mixed crowd. The event was shared with the likes of Kym Mazelle / Thai supermodels and appeared on Fashion TV.

Back to England a move to London to smash the scenesters circuit there with a high profile homecoming gig at happening venue The Monto Water Rats. Then a Triumphant Headline Return to The Cavern Club Liverpool set the pace for the biggest gig of their career; in Support of Alabama 3, at Leeds premier live music venue ‘LEEDS ACADEMY’ NowThen are the first Leeds based band ever to support a Major act at the LEEDS ACADEMY.

Hard Rock Hell Launches Road Trip To Ibiza

October 20th, 2009

The press release didn’t mention it but the date is 2nd-9th June 2010

It’s simple, why not take one of the worlds most famous islands, invite a 1000 of your best rock mates along for the trip and plonk them on the white isle of Ibiza with their families n kids in tow and have a total rock out over 7 days of fun packed rock n roll debauchery. Add to that a Marshall wall for most of the evenings, bring in about 20 bands and let this new HRH horde party hard with artists, press, DJ’s and mates alike all over this sun kissed isle.

This new niche event is proudly sponsored by Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Classic Prog, Rock Radio and Scuzz TV, who will each be hosting an arena during the weeks trip. There will be 5 big nights out, crossing the full spectrum of HRH. This will include, Classic Rock, NWOBHM, Classic and Battle Metal, Young Bloods and even a Prog evening with some special talent to be announced shortly. HRH will be taking the world famous venues within Ibiza and lacing them with Rock couture to make it,”all in line” with this first ever rock n metal crusade onto the shores of Ibiza.

The event will not solely be about big nights out but will also include, some unplugged sunset sessions on beach front venues plus all out madness in open air venues during the day as well as multiple catamaran boats all rigged up for the sheer hell of it. Hotels are being kitted out exclusively for this special event plus a range of sport and day time activities. There will also be a special HRH concierge service locally offering everything right down to restaurant bookings.

The concept may be described as insane, but that’s the boundaries that HRH continuously break, to create total rock n roll experiences. There will be 20 bands flown into party with the HRH horde as well as some local Spanish Talent to fill in the gaps. First bands to confirm include tried and tested HRH legends

Wolf, Grand Magus, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Alestorm, TYR, Battlelore and Attica Rage who will be joined by many more, very shortly

In time the event will be open to all nationalities throughout Europe making this a new mile stone in the rock calendar. HRH has the ability to increase this 20 fold, but want to show the world what its all about before they crank it up to future levels.

HRH Promoter Jonni Davis said “We’ve been working on this for a year now, we’ll have our own hotels, our own bars, our own venues, all as exclusive as we want them to be, being somewhat local experts by choice, only makes it easier to turn this into something that people will remember as a true rock experience for the rest of their lives. We are overwhelmed with the support from the trade, so only look at putting on something that’s off the chart….we’ve even went as far to open this up to peoples families and kids.”

All rooms sleep 2 or 3 pax with AC, TV and pool and we can play about with flights either side of these dates if needed, just call us.

Kids under 11 are free, kids 11/ 14, 50% …its that easy and if you need a baby sitter, we have trained qualified people at hand to take care of that too, so you don’t miss out on anything.
