The B29 Tour

Birmingham Promoters presents The B29 Tour, Winter 2019. The B29 Tour takes its name from the postcode of the bustling Selly Oak area of Birmingham from which all the featured artists found their musical feet. This thriving student community has produced some of the city’s most exciting up and coming artists who will now be showcased across the country. The 5 date tour will stop off at Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol and London.

Fergus Channell is a Birmingham based artist originally from Southampton creating an alternative jazz infused sound. Since Fergus’s first solo gig in 2018, he has developed an original style taking inspiration from the alternative and modern jazz music scenes. Soulful melodies and rhythmic guitar allow Fergus to create a unique blend of genre alongside the political discourse intertwined in his lyricism. With his newest release of the live demo ’Sessions’, the coming year is set to be an exciting time for the artist with a number of gigs and releases to follow alongside a variety of talented artists emerging in the Birmingham music scene.

Since their formation in late 2017, Portobello UK have developed a unique musical style, influenced by the likes of Tom Misch, Jamiroquai, and Ady Suleiman, resulting in a sound that combines the elements of funk, neo-soul, and indie genres.

Portobello’s debut single ‘Money’ was recorded at Park Studios. Boasting intricate drum fills, slick guitar, and funky basslines under soulful vocal melodies, ‘Money’ is emblematic of the band’s funkier and more upbeat side.

The band are set to release the full EP in Autumn 2019.

harico have burst onto the University scene combining elements of psychedelic rock, indie pop and disco sounds with a big stage presence and tight musicianship which has developed a loyal local following. Formed at UoB in 2017, the first three members bonded over music tastes and baked beans, and began jamming over demos in a small halls kitchen. Completing the line up with a skilled drummer at a Society event set the wheels in motion, and they don’t look to be slowing any time soon.

Formed in Birmingham in 2019, THE RESERVOIR CATS are a 4-piece indie funk band consisting of Tom Kerfoot (vocals/guitar/keys), Yusuf Khan (guitar), Sachin Chambers (bass) and Nathan Moorley (drums). The band released their debut eponymous EP earlier in the year, with influences ranging from Radiohead to Earth, Wind & Fire.
