The Jammhouse continues to bring the best of our regions talent to the sofa and the stage.
A young band on the way up, local quartet The Clameens will headline the next Playhouse Jammhouse on Saturday August 10. Described as one of the most exciting and versatile outfits to grace the ever-growing Northern Irish music scene in recent months, the young band made up of Brother's Ethan (15) Hayden (19) , Sean ( 19) And Ryan (18). Following on from a stunning performance at The Jammhouse in February supporting Little Bear, the band has performed alongside well-known and influential acts in the industry, such as The Libertines' front man Pete Doherty on his Northern Irish tour, The Undertones , Dance Duo The Japanese's Pop Stars and impressed many with their performances as part of the RTE show Other Voices in February and Music City in June.
Supporting The Clameens, are The Turning, a four-piece young Brit-Pop/Mod band based in London, featuring local musician Luke McLaughlin (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), David Bardon (Lead Guitar), Louis Gilbert (Bass), Ruben Kenton-Harris (Drums).
Heavily influenced by bands from all decades such as The Beatles, The Kinks, The Doors, The Jam, The Who, Oasis and many more. The Turning's new single Magazine Street came out in June, and the band have been gigging around the UK throughout the summer with two more singles coming out later this year -one next month and another in October.
Also performing on the night will be 19 year old local singer songwriter Darrell Coyle. Based in Liverpool Darrell was the first signing by Walled City Records, established by local men Oran O'Carroll and Glee star Damien McGinty. His debut EP, My My My, has now charted in no less than six countries on iTunes, in the UK, US, Canada, Peru, Australia and Mexico, where it reached number 10!
