Massive Wagons win big – Planet Rock 2021

Massive Wagons win big – Planet Rock 2021

“Massive” congratulations to local rock band Massive Wagons for winning Best British Album in Planet Rock’s “The Rocks Awards 2021”!

They also came 2nd place in the “Best British Band” and “Best British Single” categories. An amazing achievement for the lads.

Catch them on the 14th of August at The Platform in Morecambe, or at a number of festivals this summer around the country.

Live music is back baby!

What a strange time it has been recently hey? I hope that everyone is well and has made it through the horrible events since Coronavirus. I know it’s been very hard for pretty much everybody.

I know that you’ve all, like me, been really missing live music. It’s so great to see it slowly returning – and so I’ve decided that so should this website! Expect a lot more activity here from now on. I’m hoping to add some more features so if you have any ideas, or would like us to post an article that you’ve written, please get it touch!

Until some time very soon, take care.

The Morecambe Christmas Charity Single 2015

The Morecambe Christmas Charity Single 2015

A group of talented local musicians and singers have joined forces for a Christmas charity single. They’ve recorded a version of The Hollies’ ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ to raise money for Unique Kidz & Co., who provide specialist services for disabled children and their families.

Last year they recorded ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ and raised £1,850 for Unique Kidz. This year they hope to raise even more.

Watch the video above, but more importantly support this very worthy cause by purchasing the single. 100% of the cost of the £5 CD goes directly to the charity. You can get your copy from:
