In the summer of 1984 singer Steve Overland and his brother, guitarist Chris (bothformerly of Wildlife) teamed up with drummer Pete Jupp (ex Wildlife and Samson) and bassist Merv Goldsworthy (ex Diamond Head and Samson) to form FM. Joined
by the keyboard talents of Didge Digital, by December that year they had secured a recording contract with CBS/Portrait and the band headed to Germany for a run of dates with Meat Loaf. Further tours with Tina Turner, Foreigner and Gary Moore built up the momentum. On 8 September 1986 FM released their debut album INDISCREET (featuring the hugely popular single "Frozen Heart") to great critical acclaim and the year ended on a high with FM supporting the white-hot Bon Jovi on their "Slippery When Wet" tour. For the next nine years FM consolidated their position at the forefront of British melodic rock, touring extensively as headliners and also joining bands such as Status Quo and Whitesnake on tours to promote releases such as 1989's TOUGH IT OUT album; TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS released in 1991 (with Andy Barnett on guitar replacing the now-departed Chris Overland); APHRODISIAC in 1992 and what was to be their 'final' album, 1995's DEAD MAN'S SHOES with new recruit Jem Davis (Tobruk, UFO) on keyboards. In 2007 - after a 12 year sabbatical - FM were persuaded to return to the stage for a 'one-off' headline performance at a sold-out Firefest IV at Nottingham Rock City. The rapturous reception from the fans at Firefest led to FM quickly making the decision to record a new album and following a return to Firefest in 2009, in March 2010 FM released their much-anticipated sixth studio album METROPOLIS with Jim Kirkpatrick replacing Andy Barnett on lead guitar. FM haven't stopped since… Headline tours both in the UK and overseas, Special Guest slots touring with Foreigner, Journey, Thin Lizzy, Heart, Saxon and Skid Row; festival appearances including Download, Planet Rockstock, Sweden Rock, Graspop, Steelhouse Festival, Frontiers Rock Festival, Hard Rock Hell and Ramblin' Man Fair, and in 2018 their first-ever live show in the US at Melodic Rock Fest 5. When not touring, FM have been busy in the studio and since their 2010 'comeback' album they have released 2013's double helping of ROCKVILLE and ROCKVILLE II; HEROES AND VILLAINS in 2015 and ATOMIC GENERATION in 2018 along with INDISCREET 30 - a new 2016 recording of FM's classic debut album to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release - and THE ITALIAN JOB live DVD/CD. 2020 brings FM's first Australian tour in March followed by the release of the band's twelfth studio album SYNCHRONIZED on 10 April via Frontiers Music S.r.l. and UK tour dates.

Who would have thought that the Tygers of Pan Tang would still be making records and playing shows over 40 years after their initial inception? Certainly not main man and sole surviving original member Robb Weir. ‘I was a fan of heavy rock who wanted to make his own music’ he said recently. ‘Last year when I walked on stage in Dusseldorf in front of 4,000 people it occurred to me that it had gone rather well!’

The original band, who made 4 albums for MCA records, survived the unexpected departure of Jess Cox to run Neat records and later John Sykes, who was bound for Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake. What they didn’t survive was their greatest commercial success with the album ‘The Cage’ and the arguments with their record company that would follow. However, Weir, ever the optimist, formed a new version of the band to both play the old material and write songs that would represent this ‘new’ Tygers. The backbone of the band – Craig Ellis, drums together with Jack Meille, vocals and Gav Gray, bass - have now been together for considerably longer than the first Tygers and were recently joined by Francesco Marras on guitar. Lengthy auditions had to ensure that Francesco could walk in the same shoes as his illustrious predecessors. Anyone coming to see the band will hear how successful that process was.

With the recent renewal of their contract with Mighty Music, the label that has released their last two albums, and a return to live work, Robb and the band cannot wait to get back on the road. Expect a setlist peppered with tunes from the early albums including the now recognised gem ‘Spellbound’ together with the best of their recent catalogue.

Emma Hodgson - Lead Vocal/Guitar
Shelley Walker -  Lead Guitar/Vocal
Keira Kenworthy - Bass/Vocal
Chloe Whitworth - Drums/Vocal

Since bursting on to the scene with a vengeance in 2017, Midnite City have taken on the world and hustled themselves to the top of the pile to be crowned the true kings of hair metal.

The band have released four critically acclaimed albums, with second album ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’ being voted 5th best album of the year in Classic Rock magazine, as well as being voted one of the best albums in the 35 year history of Burrn magazine in Japan.

Since then the band have headlined tours of the UK, played high profile festivals in Europe, sold out shows in Japan and Australia, and continue to dazzle a growing legion of die-hard fans – The Midnite Army – around the globe with their high energy, feel good, melodic party rock.

Hot on the heels of 2021’s ‘Itch You Can’t Scratch’, Midnite City released their current album ‘In At The Deep End’, their strongest album to date which ticks every box when it comes to late 80s style hair metal. From party anthems to melodic rock monsters and heartfelt power ballads, it’s all here in abundance.

When four experienced musicians get together to form a new rock band, you know they mean business. Greyfox Conspiracy was formed to write songs about life and love which have been distilling away over many years like a good strong whiskey. When they formed the band they found they had a lot in common. Born and brought up in the South Wales landscape, which has seen so many changes in the past 100 years, they had a lot to write about.

All seasoned musicians who have been making music for as long as they can remember, they have now found a common ground where they can enjoy writing songs and playing live, and inspire a new generation of young musicians to keep the rock journey alive and thriving. Playing live shows is where these old grizzlies work best, putting all they have into making a show you would want to be part of, and see again. Structured around the charismatic Greyfox Growl, the band create a show allowing each band member to demonstrate their own personality, which on occasion is quite a thing to experience.
