Easter weekend gigs across Furness

Looking for a great nighe out this easter weekend.

Hart and Soul
Super Soul Sunday @ The Last Orders with Hart & Soul.

Pop down for a pint on Sunday and have a boogie! You'll all be drunety drunk by then anyway! Fun Times! :)

A special chart event on Saturday and a Retro 70s and 80s event on Easter Sunday (with free entry all night for those in fancy dress).

Sunday is the Canteen’s traditional big Easter show with Liverpool’s Major Major headlining a who’s who of local talent. Among the bands on the bill include The Relics, The Mooncats, Ramirez, Don’t Tell Grant (acoustic) and Dropping Point. Tickets as ever are on the doors which open at 7.30pm. Also on Easter Sunday in the Cinema Room is the much awaited Luke Solomon and A Darker Disco DJ event in the Cinema Room from 9pm.

THE KINGS (Dalton Road - Barrow In Furness)
Easter Sunday, Homegrown present the first Super Sunday of the year.
Featured are no less than eight acts, among them Homegrown DJs, Media Monkeys, Musical Mayhem, The Mooncats DJ set, Ste Tyson from The Prophets DJing, Mister Sushi, and full live band Zenfo.

On top of that are a few mystery guests plus live graffiti in the garden – weather permitting.
All of this plus nice atmosphere, friendly people and a jaegermeister machine, beserk medicine at sub zero temperatures.

Proceedings begin at 4pm, with Mooncats and Prophets selections from past and present followed by Musical Mayhem's Steve Graham with an eclectic blend of funk, soul and grooves
Playing live are Manchester's Zenfo. This laid back hip-hop quartet have been busy around their hometown scene, playing at the Warehouse project and supporting Nightmares on Wax to name just two recent highlights.

Getting the dancefloor moving will be Media Monkeys, on top form with the latest breaks, beats and maybe a little old school magic for good measure, while Mister Sushi will round off with breakbeat, dubstep and twisted disco.

With the new sound system now complete, the friendly atmosphere and quality line-up, this should be a Sunday session to remember.
Ends 3am and entry is free.
