Seaside Sons:Seaside Sons started with friends Jason Skimming & Craig McGinn getting together in 2012. It wasn't long before they started to build a following. In October of 2013, experienced guitarist Pav Cathcart and seasoned drummer Campbell Sproat both formerly of Nelson Gem, joined the band.
Little over a month later, Seaside Sons played the well renowned King Tuts in Glasgow, playing to a sell-out crowd. Since then the band have gone on from strength to strength, making plans for a U.K. tour and festival appearances in 2015.
The band released their debut album “Out of Time” on February 21st 2015 available to download on iTunes.

The Kleptocrats:The Kleptocrats have been gigging for about 5 years, from playing local gigs in Ayr to headlining Glasgow ABC and last year brought themselves one step closer to becoming household names by having a fantastic time with memorable performances supporting established bands among them the highly acclaimed "Kill it Kid" at top class career launching venues such as King Tuts.
Description of themselves: "Dark blues music with heavy face melting guitar parts"
Meanbone:Meanbone are a band with their roots planted firmly in the 90's alternative grunge rock scene but with an up to date twist. Starting with a raw and powerful set list and adding the natural energy of the band members makes the perfect recipe for a rocking night ... their motto is "All gigs louder and better than the last!" The band have made a lasting impact all over Ayrshire and Glasgow (notably at the Clutha Appeal) and anticipation is growing for upcoming events.
