Launched at a gig at Seven Arts in Leeds on Sunday November 1st, the album is available to buy from the Bandcamp website on a Pay-What-You-Feel basis (there’s no minimum so pay £100, pay £0, pay something in the middle!)

It features material written by double bassist Tom Riviere with one Ornette Coleman track thrown in for good measure. There’s a blues paying tribute to embryo-stealing, Dilophosaur victim Dennis Nedry, a burning time-no-changes and more.

Recently, Family Band went into the studio to record a set of material. It’s now mixed and mastered and a release is due in late Autumn this year. As a taster, one track (Bring Lulu) is currently available to listen to on Soundcloud,

Family Band HQ is now whipped up into a frenzy creating album artwork and working on new material for their upcoming live shows. The next opportunity to see them live will be at Seven Arts on Sunday 1st November.

INTRODUCING: Riley Stone-Lonergan Quartet

We are delighted to introduce a new band to our roster, the Riley Stone-Lonergan quartet. A celebrated soloist and sideman, Riley has won a myriad of awards for his playing and never fails to impress and surprise audiences with his versatility on the bandstand. This quartet is already making an impression, having recorded for Muso Channnel in late 2014 and set to gig in Leeds and at Ronnie Scotts in April. (See Upcoming Gigs page for more details).

The band features Francesco Coghetto on guitar, Simon Read on double bass and Steve Hanley on drums.
