Formed in late 2011, four piece indie band Office Party have gone from strength to strength, establishing themselves a place on the Hull music scene through up-beat, danceable guitar music encompassing catchy melodies and classic rhythms creating what has been described as a ‘vintage sound’. In 2013 the band recorded three tracks with Derby based label Sound-Hub Records, the first of which, ‘Fine Without You’, described by BBC Introducing’s Alan Raw as having “an old-Hull sound” was released through the label on 08/10/13 and is available to download from all major music sites. The band have recently finished recording a second single ‘Not Getting Any Younger’ available 01/09/14 as well as a six track mini album with Sound-Hub, expected to be released over the next few months.

Orphan Boy are Manchester émigrés, who are originally from Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire. Their names are Rob Cross, Paul Smith, Chris Day, and more recent Orphan addition Sam Carlton. They moved there because there was nothing to do and because they were bored. They made music that they declared ‘council pop’. Their live shows soon attracted a rabid following, who remain loyal to this day. Rob notes: “People go crazy at the shows: throwing themselves onstage, stage invasions… I can’t remember the last time we completely finished a set. It’s mental, the stage invasions have become part of the show, we’ve had people strip naked and jump onstage”, “We have great fans, it’s always really good natured and everyone’s just there for a good time
The Madisons are a 5 piece outfit from the sunny banks of Hull. With edgy guitar hooks and melodic choruses this is a band you will not want to miss. Mixed styles of Rhythm, Punk and Rock n Roll with influences such as – The Doors, The Kinks, Sex Pistols, The Strokes, this band will be sure to let themselves out in the morning!
