The weather might be changable and the nights starting to draw in but don't be even thinking about staying in with a blazing telly there are gigs, gigs, gigs out there. You need to be stepping over that thrshold and soaking up the live, original sounds.

Talking of which we have a brilliant 6 venue, 30+ act festival of emerging talent taking over Stockton. In Middlesbrough it is Art Weekender but look out for live music ain conjunction at Base Camp.

What else a genuine music legend comes to the area on Wednesday and one of my favourite north eastern live acts in Twist Helix tonight at the Georgian. Oh and I had the pleasure of sharing the BBC Tees studio with Jayne No Lost Me appearing tonight at Base Camp. I can tell you Bob and me were completely blown away by her talent.




Westgarth Social Club

+14 show



On Friday 27th September Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Social Club hosts an interesting mix of rock and reggae, which brings together international influences and local talent. KIOKO are a soul outfit hailing from Birmingham, whose music was inspired by Caribbean dance grooves and lyricism. The Midlands has a rich history of reggae and ska musicians and KIOKO are one of the next cabs off the rank to continue the tradition.

Support comes from female fronted pop funk outfit The Lulas, who are making something of a homecoming having been born and raised in Middlesbrough themselves. Their recent single Pink Socks brought critical acclaim and saw them receive Richer Unsigned Artist of the Week accolade in early June. The band have come a long way in a short while, having only formed in October last year, but they’ve already defined their sound as laid-back summer rock. The band will form a lovely juxtaposition with the headliners; between soulful reggae and languid rock ‘n’ roll there ought to be something for everyone.

PP Arnold featuring Steve Cradock

Support from Jon Allen

Middlesbrough Town Hall



Catching the eye of Mick Jagger aged 19. PP Arnold landed in London as part of Ike & Tina Turner’s band supporting The Rolling Stones. PP Arnold carved out a five-decade career working with everyone from Jagger, Rod Stewart, Barry Gibb, Eric Clapton, Paul Weller and Primal Scream, to name a few.

Rediscovered mid-90’s records of PP Arnold by Steve Craddock let to ‘The New Adventures Of PP Arnold’ album.

The record spans emotive orchestral soul, sunshine pop, epic, edgy house music recorded with a choir and a Cathedral pipe organ.

“It’s soul music, really, I can’t get away from my gospel roots. My whole sound, my soul and expression is coming through my spirit.”

“The New Adventures of P.P. Arnold” album (CD, LP, DL) Out now!


Jon Allen has a voice you don’t forget. Just ask Jools Holland, who demanded Jon appear on “Later…” after hearing him on the radio. Or Duffy, who heard his version of “Mercy” and called him in to the studio – only to find that he wasn’t the black soulman she had imagined. Or the millions of viewers of “Homeland” transfixed by his track “Joanna”. Or the BBC Producers repeatedly A-listing his songs. Or fans Guy Chambers, or Mark Knopfler, or Jo Whiley, all of whom have been entranced by his trademark mix of catchy tunes and folk- and Sixties-inflected country blues.
