Minnaars @ Mambos - Shmeet the Beat 4

Recommended Posts

Following 3 packed events last year, Shmeet the Beat, Peterhead's fast growing live music event are gearing up for their first live show of 2010. Headlining the gig, on Saturday March 6th at Mambo's Nightclub are one of Britain's most talked about new bands, Minnaars.

Hailing from Leicester, Minnaars exploded onto the UK music scene last year with stomping sets at Reading and Leeds festivals and BBC Radio 1 have proclaimed them to be The hottest property to come out of Leicester since Kasabian. They've also become a big favourite with the music press, receiving regular plaudits and recognition from NME and even the star of television's Gavin and Stacey, Mathew Horne has picked them out to be the biggest new band of 2010, Last year was all about White Lies. My tip for this year is Minnaars.

Event co-ordinator Scott Maskame said, We had a great reaction to the gigs we brought to the town last year and are looking to push on and get a regular thriving live music event in Peterhead. So far we've really concentrated on getting local bands to play as its something that we think is really worthwhile doing. This though is something really different. To get a band that have played such big festivals to come up and play alongside local bands in Mambo's is a great step forward and going to be a really great night.

Shmeet the Beat are also moving forward with plans for more gigs this year and are delighted to announce a forthcoming appearance by Oasis' former manager, and founder of the famous Creation Records, Alan McGee. Co-organsier Dave Cherry added, Alan McGee has agreed to come up and take part in our May-day weekend event with a DJ set and the event will also feature a strong line up of both up and coming local acts, and more established bands from further afield.

The March 6th bill also features Aberdeen band In Atlanta, before local favourites Velvet Audio take to the stage armed with new material and a forthcoming EP release. The first one hundred people through the doors will also be given an exclusive free download link for the EP. The night will finish with what is sure to be a fantastic bang with Peterhead's own WHACK! DJ's. Tickets are priced 3 and will be available on the night.

...I'm exhausted just listening... Jo Whiley, Radio 1.
