Hanwell gets ready to rock as Hootie music festival pays tribute to ‘Father of Loud’, Jim Marshall.
I went to the first Hanwell Hootie last year and it was brilliant so if you enjoy live music from some great local bands then get ready for this year’s Hootie on Saturday 5th April from 4pm.
As last year, the Hanwell Hootie is sponsored by Marshall Amps. Jon Ellery, Managing Director of Marshall, said: ‘Our philosophy with the festival is about celebrating our roots, bringing fantastic live music to small venues in Hanwell and putting the area back on the music map.’
The 2014 Hootie features live music from 30 bands playing across six venues between 4pm – 11pm, including The Prince of Wales, The Inn on the Green, The Fox, The Duke of York, The Kings Arms and The Village Inn. There’ll also be ‘fringe’ music activities in around Hanwell, including The Clock Tower Café, Ryan’s Bar and W7 Emporium.
Confirmed acts include: the nine-piece swamp pop, New Orleans blues group, The Dirty Gentlemen; the raucous rock ‘n’ roll gypsy band, Tankus the Henge; and nothing short of a super group, Bad for Lazarus, who boast ex-members of Nine Inch Nails, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and UNKLE.
The festival will kick off with a Minute of Loud near Hanwell Clock Tower at 4pm. To keep up to date with who is playing where and when visitwww.facebook.com/
