What’s on at Hootananny and Mad Hatters
THE BROKEN RAVENS with support from TWISTER and LITTLE HANDS OF SILVER
TBR are a 5 piece hard rock band, based in Stornoway and formed in 2014.
At the moment they are finishing mastering their latest EP, recorded in Laurel Canyon(Los Angeles) at Danny Hutton’s (Three Dog Night) Canyon Hut home studio.
Danny’s son Dash (HIAMS) and Charles Clark (Astrid/Our Lunar Activities) produced the recording, which was then sent to Grammy Award winning producer Simon Gogerly (U2, Paloma Faith) to mix.
The band have been to the US twice playing venues like The Whisky a Go Go, The Viper Room and The Canyon Club to very warm receptions, and have a small tour in Los Angeles, Hollywood, Orange County & San Diego of around five shows lined up for next Spring along with various other opportunities in the US.
The band will also be returning to Bulgaria, Eastern Europe where they headlined the Midalidare main stage alongside Rock giants Dee Snider, Doro and Gotthard, leaving lasting impressions and appearing on National TV as well as featured on prime time radio.
The bands debut EP was released in February last year, with a track synced to Team Rock (Metal Hammer), featured in IQ magazine, The Scotsman, STV news and on BBC radio. Adrenaline PR serviced all PR for the sync and release.
Their endeavours even caught the attention of Rod Smallwood (Iron Maiden) who noted how tight the band was, going as far as to note tracks he particularly liked from the bands first release.
So be sure to check them out in Inverness at Mad Hatters for what is sure to be a great show!
