DAPPER FM RIDES AGAIN: Live launch with Bleeding Noses and the Mahouts: Friday 27th April

Bleeding Noses live at Blue Lagoon

Dapper FM will be riding the airwaves once again this weekend.

We kick off with a rather special event on Friday 27th April. We will be on air from 6pm (UK Time) with a variety of presenters dropping in to push buttons, talk nonsense and generally try to remember how everything works.

However, through the night we will also be broadcasting not one, but two live bands, who will be entertaining the masses next door in Jacs Live Music Venue. We have The Bleeding Noses and The Mahouts

Bleedin’ Noses are a six piece ensemble from Blackwood, South Wales. They combine acoustic & electric guitars, banjos, & mandolins, drums, bass & double bass, keyboards & accordion to create their unique sound. They have come to describe themselves as “Country Punks”, drawing Influence from Folk, Country, Punk Rock and The Blues.

The Mahouts are an Aberdare based posse that play their own brand of acoustic folk that refuses to be pigeonholed.

Will we remember how to use all the kit? Will all the kit work? Will the bands be any good? These questions, and many more, will be answered live on air on Friday. If you can’t be bothered to get off your arse and come to the gig, tune in to Dapper FM and see if it is a glorious success or an embarrassing disaster. Whichever way it goes, we can assure you it will be a grin.
