OK< OK...Check it out :  FACEBOOK for THE STATION HOTEL, ASHTON


"Quite simply genius" - we're happy with that!

8pm free admission - get down there!

 

Did you miss it?

Kevin Farrell blew us away - if you are looking for a truly great acoustic original, he's the man.  His take on last night?

Chris Bainbridge, the Baird of Bury, did an impromptu one (!) after The Nearly Dead Poets had introduced us to their style of poetry (shame their guitar accompaniment didn't show, but they soldiered on regardless)

Stuart Warburton is a legend in his own lifetime and was terrific.  Moved some of the crowd to tears with his lyrical stories and giggling with other renditions - brilliant.

Their take on us?  Kevin Farrell: 

"What a fantabulous night at The Two Tubs....Thankx Dave Jones for having me!  Adventures of Salvador aced it!  And they had a theremin!!  Brilliant :-)"

Chris Bainbridge:  "Bloody Brilliant!  Adventures are seriously my favourite band.  Really.  Genius"

And the organiser  Dave Jones

"Massive thank you to everyone who made it a cracking Bunker Club at the Two Tubs last night with Stuart Warbarton, Kevin Farrell, Adventures of Salvador and, of course, the Nearly Dead Poets. Smashed it!"

Back to the studio now.....next up is The Station @ Ashton as we open their Beer Festival on Friday 20th November!  Keep it warm!

TONIGHT at The Bunker Club!

We are on with the renowned Stuart Warburton and joined by Kevin Farrell 

JOIN US - it plans to be a really firecrackin' night!

ALL HALLOWS EVE

So, seeing as our Hallowe'en took a change and you're missing a gig, we thought we'd spread a little joy in sharing knowledge.....enjoy your night, however you choose to spend it, Salvadorians!

Here are 13 fabulous facts for ya!

1. Halloween goes by multiple names: All Hallows’ Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool Snap-Apple Night, Samhaim and Summer’s End.

2. There’s a reason broomstick became associated with witches! Old women accused of witchcraft were typically poor. Since they couldn’t afford horses, they used a walking stick, which was replaced by a broom to help them travel.

3. Just like broomsticks and witches are synonymous, so are black cats and witches. This is because it was once believed the felines protected the powers of witches.

4. Harry Houdini (1874-1926) is one of the most famous and mysterious magicians. He eerily died on Halloween night in 1926 from appendicitis after he suffered three stomach punches.

5. Samhain, which is an Irish Celtic festival, inspired Halloween. It celebrates the end of the harvest season. The tradition spread to the rest of the world after the Irish fled Ireland because of the potato famine.

6. Jack-o’-lanterns started in Ireland, too. Candles were placed inside of hallowed-out-turnips to keep away evil spirits on Samhain.

7. Ever wonder why orange and black are traditional Halloween colors? Orange represents the harvest and black represents the death of summer.

8. Trick-or-treating might have started from the superstition that ghosts could disguise themselves as humans and knock on doors for food or money. If they were denied, the spirit could haunt the person who refused it.

9. It was believed that the boundary between the living and dead was blurred on Halloween. Since the living were allowed to walk among the dead, human would wear ghoulish masks and dress up so the spirits would not recognized them.

10. Samhainophobia is the fear of Halloween.

11. Halloween might have originated 4,000 B.C.

12. Salem, Massachusetts, and Anoka, Minnesota, claim to be the Halloween capitals of the world, even though the holiday originated in Ireland.

13. Halloween only precedes Christmas as the highest grossing commercial holiday.

To WORK!

THINK we're resting?? Oh no....we are transforming Salvador Towers into a studious studio in preparation for the creation of our first Album!

KEEP CHECKING IN FOR UPDATES!

Next up....

Still easing his way back into it after the midnight gig last week and keeping it local, next Friday (stick it in y' diary folks, we know ya missed us as much as we miss you!)...it's back to The Bunker Club at The Two Tubs in Bury.  Should be another good night, starts about 8pm so plenty of time for that end of week catnap before kicking off the weekend again with Adventures of Salvador.

"Well, what can I say, who needs fireworks when you have the Bunker Club ? Our Great friends Adventures of Salvador are headlining a stella cast and ,of course, the usual nonsense. the best fun you can have with your clothes on (optional) and we may even get the log burner going!"

~ Davey Jones, Man Behind The Bunker Club

Hey pop pickers...... We're back !!!! Now our Lazarus like bass player Nigel , has risen once more .... We shall be appearing at Blind Tiger Bury next Friday 16th as part of Bury Light Night, frankly we can't wait .... Been too long stay tuned for more details xx

 
Oh yeah, baby....

You know you just can't help it when your band get together for a "quick catch-up" during the recovery period and you write a new song.....

Full rehearsal next week, but we still got it!

Itching for Bury Light Night at Blind Tiger Bury on 16th!

Invalid Update...He's Home

Tentative steps....the man is now recovering at home.

He could stand the quiet no more!

Huge thanks to the staff of Ward F5 North Manchester Hospital -                                             it might be an old place, but the level of care was faultless.

Band reunion this week as we mull over new ideas and have a catch up. Will be up, running and making noise again before you know it!


Invalid Update...

For all Salvadorians wondering what the latest is....

Nigel is making progress, much slower than he'd like, but progress

There are no other complications and so it is hoped he will be

out of hospital and back among us within a week.


Meantime, we have cancelled our appearances at the "We Shall Overcome" gigs we were due to attend over the first weekend in October.  The guy needs a rest!  We wish all venues and acts involved across the country a successful weekend.  Thanks in particular for the good wishes offered from Pauline of The Station Pub, Ashton-under-Lyne, where we were due to play on the Sunday night

Next gig will be for our wonderful Blind Tiger, Bury on Bury Light Night

- that's Friday 16th October.  By then he will be chomping at the bit to entertain you!

For your entertainment....

Ok, so we realise you might be missing your fix of Adventures of Salvador and with Nigel still recovering in hospital there's a bit of a gap in the gig calendar.....HOWEVER....!!!

For your delectation and delight we have added new Videos to the website!  All links through to YouTube put up by our good friend Jonesthecameraman and going back to our Pop Song EP Launch which took place at Blind Tiger, Bury earlier this year.   So feast your eyes and ears, dear friends....for live and loud Adventures of Salvador!!

SORRY TO ANNOUNCE

___________________________

 CANCELLATION     

We are sorry to have to tell you that Adventures of Salvador will no longer

be "opening the show" at Ramsbottom Festival

 

Unfortunately, Nigel was rushed to hospital yesterday and will be out of action until he responds to treatment. Although he begged the band to "play on" and find a replacement, they are united in their stance that he is "irreplaceable", as all 4 members are corners of the perfect jigsaw that is Adventures of Salvador.

Besides which, no-one can pull off a purple suit like our fabulous bassist can....

We will be back to ignite you very soon. Meantime, if you have tickets, enjoy - Ramsbottom Festival is a truly great event.  We would like to thank everyone there for their understanding.

From all at Salvador Towers, we thank you for your support x

Next up: RAMMY FESTIVAL!

Our next gig .... RAMSBOTTOM FESTIVAL 2015

Friday 18th we open the whole thing...

So early dart from work...

Jump around with us for a bit , then we will be gathering for cocktails at the bar ...

And making a night of it , and what a terrific line up it is too...

Do come and join us and claim your free badge !!!!

What a Blast!

Woooooooo you do gigs then you do gigs ....

We have just finished 5 in 9 days and have to say Kingsfest was very special ....

Thanks to all who were there we really enjoyed that ... Great venue great sound and great crowd proper brilliant... 

In fact, last night at Kingsfest was possibly our best gig yet for us -
