Glaston-Bury 2015

Hello, folks....how's the summer going?  Yeah, well as various members of the band are off in search of what sun they can find, trying to recouperate for a while, things are on the move elsewhere.

So - the next Bank Holiday is soon to be upon us and what better way to spend it than watching Live Music all day?  August Bank Holiday - Monday 31st August - is just 3 weeks away.  The event? 

GLASTON-BURY 2015

Have you not been yet?  Well, Adventures of Salvador have supported this for the last 4 years and this is the fundraiser's 8th year.  The event is the dreamchild of Christopher "Bucko" Buckley and has grown and grown.  A gathering of the finest local bands (and some less local!) who all contribute their time and talent to the cause without fee, come together in the town of Bury, Lancashire, to make it one huge music festival.  The town centre comes alive with music of every genre.  Purchase one wristband at just £6 and you get into every venue to see every band.  Great atmosphere and a great day.

This year Adventures of Salvador's spot is on the Outdoor Stage - come see us!

Tickets going fast for Kings Arms Festival

Hi, folks..... a little break for us as we try to fit in some time out between us all, but still lots going on.  So, while we're at it, here's a memory jogger - tickets are going very fast for Kings Arms Festival in Salford (4th to 6th September).  It's always a great event at Paul Heaton's pub and some special moments have occurred for those who have attended the last few years including impromptu performances by Paul Heaton and Jackie Abbott.  As they say - "music, comedy and unexpected surprises" and we can vouch for all of that!

It's our 3rd year invited back and this time we're on at 5.30pm on the Saturday.  As usual we'll be ditching the gear after our slot and getting back to enjoy the rest of the evening.  It's not to be missed!

Looking forward to giving a great performance this year now we're in full force (Ollie's first time there).  Come and support us and treat yourselves to a great weekend/day/night - tickets are just £16.50 (inc £1.50 booking fee) for the whole weekend, Friday to Sunday and are available at:

wegottickets.com

 

 

 

Another weekend blown away....and the fanbase grows

BOLDLY going where most originals bands dare not...and converting them along the way!  Raise The Roof 4 was a resounding success and being the only originals band on the Friday night might seem a little daunting, but with Nigel commencing with "don't worry folks, you probably won't know it because we wrote it" they were warned - and within 5 minutes were dancing and bobbing along to all the Salvador greats.  Merch-girl was kept busy and we went down a storm - so thanks for all who attended, thanks to all who continue to spread the word and the music and to all who supported us by purchasing!  Thanks especially ELR, fantastic crowd , lights , PA, stage,..... Had an absolute ball.... Massive thanks to all involved especially Michelle Morris, Rob, Nick and all the Mainline guys...and all the other staff and volunteers...  [professional photos will follow, but here's Lucy's great little snapshot from the night!]

SPOTTED!

Local Rock God celebrity "Dan Heston" of "Heston" fame played The Brook this Saturday and look what he was sporting.....just sayin....

This weekend - NOT Glastonbury!

Nigel, our diva bassist, co-frontman and general all-round good guy wants a word with y'all:

"Righty ho then, now I know some of you might be drifting down to Somerset to stand in a muddy field watching Lionel Ritchie... But there is a better option especially on Saturday ... As we are playing at the Crescent with ..some other bands and one particular FANTASTIC headliner that we can't announce just yet! .... It will as ever be a brilliant night, with proper toilets and a convenient bar.... If you do want to replicate the festival experience you are more than welcome to listen to us from the car park whilst periodically pouring pint pots of warm p*** over yourselves then sleep in the park... So just get down to a civilised event and boogie your little hearts away xxx"

 

WISE WORDS, MATE.....

So what better way to cheer yourself up by listening to some upbeat tunes??

We've added to Soundcloud, and the latest EP "(We wrote a) Pop Song" has been released and is proving popular.  You all know Soundcloud really doesn't do us justice - we have to be seen to be believed!

https://soundcloud.com/adventuresofsalvador

That's one of the reasons we included 4 bonus tracks from a Live Recording at The Crescent Pub, Salford earlier in the year...It's us, untouched (though most definitely not unplugged).  The soundman Jim Watts recorded it for us and has graciously allowed us to get it out there.

So keep in touch with our shows list, follow us on Facebook etc and try to fit in a trip to see us bounce about the place - and join in!

It's Here - It's available TONIGHT!

original, spirit-lifting, body pumping, smile-inducing sounds for the night!

 

FREE ENTRY and the CD, should you want to support us with a small purchase,

is a BARGAINOUS  £2.99 only !

"Hey up, we go again with the ever wonderful Bunker Club at The Two Tubs this Friday the 8th of May with our groovy friends Adventures of Salvador and Anthony Magictallguy Jordan it is going to be hectic and quite frankly it would be silly to miss it. We start at 8pm, do you really need to be anywhere else?"

If that doesn't temp you in, how about this....note we will debuting three new tunes on Friday so be among the first in the world to hear them and oh, we are soooooo excited!!!

THE CRESCENT - CANCELLATION

CANCELLED

- but to be re-scheduled at a later date!!!

 

Sorry, folks, but due to unforeseen circumstances with folk at The Crescent tomorrow night's gig has been cancelled, to be re-scheduled at a later date.

We know a number of you have made plans to be there and really appreciate the support.  Unfortunately these things happen and despite our best sideways thinking, in this case the show really can't go on!

We are really gutted, not just for us, but for the lads in The Rocket, who have made a big effort for this.  All updates and the new date will be announced here and on Facebook as we have them.  Meantime, Get Well Soon fellas!!


News and reviews

Well, Friday's Bunker Club at The Two Tubs, Bury, might be in its infancy but it is well on its way to becoming a regular thing if last week was anything to go by!

Sam Tomlins is well worth checking out and if you're passing, pop your head in.  A few people made their week by doing just that.  If you didn't make it, here's a review from "Dave Jones" - the Bunker Club's initiator/boss/promoter:

"Well, what can l say? Another great set from Sam Tomlins who just gets better and better and a mindblower from Adventures of Salvador who left scorched earth. Bunker Club takes a break for a week but will return with more delicious music"

Don't forget this Saturday you can see us at The Crescent, Salford - and we're bringing with us another young local band "The Rocket" who have squeezed in some time between studies to make an appearance.  Come and take a gander and let the music smash away the week's stresses and strains!
