Another gig - NEW TUUUUUNES!!

If you have forgotten, we'd like to remind you we are appearing at The Two Tubs, Bury again tomorrow night.  As Dave Jones put it, using his words:

"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!!!

It's been a very long "short" week - come shake it from your boots with us!

MAY MADNESS!

It's May already! Where's the year going?!

Lots afoot at Salvador Towers and May is a busy month again for us.  Keep an eye on our ever-growing Gig List and induldge in a little May Madness with us, join us at a gig and see us in the flesh!

Working on getting the new single out to you and adding some bonus live tracks just to prove we can do it!  Still, nothing gets the giggles and energy across like being in the room, so do what you can to catch up with us this year!

Stay tuned, Lovelies....and May the 4th be with you... *groan*

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!

TOMORROW at The Two Tubs, Bury

Post from Dave Jones (The Bunker Club):

"Well, the weather forecast is great for the weekend and we have the perfect start for that at The Bunker Club at The Two Tubs in Bury this Friday with Adventures of Salvador and Sam Tomlins from 7.30pm, we just know you are going to love it. Here is a cloud you might like;

get on it y'all.

 

You heard the man!  Get yourselves down there and kickstart the weekend with a TUUUUUNE!!!

HAPPY EASTER!

It's been a great Bank Holiday weekend here at Salvador Towers.  4 big nights in a row and most calories consumed were alcoholic....but the fun doesn't stop here!  If you didn't get chance to see us this weekend, we're staying local to Bury this week and will appear at The Two Tubs pub on Friday (opposite the Parish Church).  Those who ordered tee-shirts with us should be able to pick them up then!  Meantime, get out and enjoy that sun while you can!  Be good to each other!

More radio play

The Punk Show with SD 75 by Sonicdiary on Mixcloud

 

Oh Yeah!  Two plays in one show!  Normally appearing on the BeReet Radio show from Salford City Radio, we're now included in The Punk Show - and what a play list to be included in!  Go check it out folks - this is one worth following.  You can hear both Ping Pong Head and Children of the Worm in one show - and listen to some other great hits while you're at it!  Thanks all!

More merch...

We've added the first of many-to-come tees to our Merch page.  So now not only do you not have to wait until our next gig to buy your CDs from us, but you can turn up dressed for the occasion!

More to come, but we'll fit it all in when we can!!!!!

Go check out our Store

Don't be an April Fool!

You have two chances to see us this Easter Weekend!

Easter Saturday is the Radcliffe Live Event - the launch of the new Radcliffe Market/plaza - and we play the bandstand by the pub at 4pm!  Great timing - before the football and after the kids have had their faces painted and are in a better mood for a boogie!

On Easter Sunday, we're back to our spiritual home, Blind Tiger Bury, for a grown-ups gig.  We're on about 9.30pm with a longer set and new songs too.  If you've not had chance to see us play with our not-so-new drummer, Ollie, yet - you have been missing out!  Get down and give your ears a listen and your feet something to dance to.  No work on Monday, either, for many of us, which makes a rare change!

Either way, it will be a weekend to remember see you there....

 

Music Player Switcheroonie!

Quick update - we've mixed up the music player a little so you have 3 new chooooones to listen to.  Coming soon - a taster from our Live album ...oooOOOOoooooh!!

Gigs Update! Newly confirmed!

We can now reveal we will be playing the 5th Annual Cadence Festival, appearing on Saturday 20th June 2015!  More details will follow, but we've been given permission to let just the cat's whiskers out of the bag for now!  So all of you kicking your heels on that weekend, or local to the Tyldesley area - make a BIG FLUORESCENT NOTE in your diary/on your calendars to get down and support the event!  If that's not enough for you - go check out Doctor and The Medics' gig list....yep, they're gonna be there on the Saturday, too!!!

Stay tuned......it's a good 'un!

Reviews from the frontline

Whilst it's great to get a good press review, it's the opinion of our followers that we want to know about and your feedback is the most valuable.  So, we thought we'd share some - give you a clearer idea of what we're all about:

August 2014 when Loop Aznavour and Adventures of Salvador became one band a huge crowd gathered at Molloy's in Bury (our Glaston-bury venue for the day) and the quote of the day:

"The two best in Bury - Loop and Adventures of Salvador - it's pure genius;

like creating one awesome megaband!"


January 2015 when Ollie was released upon the world and our new drummer gave us the final touch we were looking for - at Shangri-La, Prestwich:

"I've only heard them on 'tape' before now (?!) and they were great -

but Live, they are something else - absolutely amazing!"


and last week at The Crescent we heard many great compliments from a very lively crowd, but here's something we like posted to our Facebook page: 

"Is the live at the Crescent release still potentially on the cards? ...the new stuff works really well. Dog House needs a proper studio big volume version. Still, I'd be happy with a live taster. Keep up the good work chaps....during the Crescent gig a punter turned to me mid tune and said

'its the Pistols with a f-in theremin!' No finer compliment could be given..."

 

Appreciating the lot of you, here's to the rest of the year and hoping we can continue to blow you away!  Thanks for following - and every one of the new Likes on Facebook, Tweets on Twitter and CDs sold mean a great deal to us - as much as you turning out for the gigs themselves.  Cheers.

 

 

Music Player Tunes Swap

Yep - we've mixed them up a bit and you can now hear Children of the Worm and Cynical Bob.  We're working on releasing Pop Song and also have pleas for our latest creation Dog House to be released - working as fast as we can to satisfy all demands!  In the meantime, hop to the music player for the new taster selection!

Not-so-typical Sunday

Ok, the typical bit is the recovery from the night before.  The not-so-typical is we're spending this grotty day at the studio laying down some sounds and getting more of it out there!

The night before we recover from was a fantastic gig at The Crescent (check out new photos) and usual after party at Blind Tiger, Bury to the early hours- thanks to all for attending on what was, to be fair, the type of weather that made you wanna stay home!  Feeling alive with the buzz and having the crowd pogo-ing to ping pong head always makes us smile.  The new Dog House track went down a storm - cheers, folks, means a lot - another to get onto CD sooner rather than later!

Tonight at The Crescent!

Come on Down!

Adventures of Salvador will be playing live (is there any other way??) with The Ascension and Stalagmites - looking to be a great night with a great line-up.  Look, it's cold and it's miserable - get yourself down there, get amongst it and cheer yourselves up with a proper top gig....you know it makes sense!

B-Fest confirmation

Easter weekend, Adventures of Salvador will be supporting and appearing at B-Fest, Bolton's big music festival....date, time, venue etc will follow - that's all for now folks!

Upcoming and fabulous!

Yay, we're back at The Crescent, Salford this Saturday for a gig - all details in our gig list.  Great night anticipated by all of us!

Then Sunday we're laying down some new stuff, recording one of our latest singles by popular demand!  Meantime, the calendar is looking good for the year - still looking to fill it up though!  Gigs gigs and more gigs - let us at 'em!  We're here to thrill !

A quick thanks...

to all of you checking in on our new website.  Thanks to you, we've now moved up to the front page of search engines - where we belong!  No money exchanging hands and no expensive Ads - just human word of mouth.  Thanks a lot folks - much appreciated.

More to follow - lots a' happenin' this year and gigs-a-plenty!  Keep an eye out for updates on the website, Twitter and Facebook!

 

Ciao for now!

TONIGHT: Shangri-La!

Hi all you lovely lovely people:

Just a quick reminder that its our first show of 2015 tonight and after our Christmas break, we are proper excited and up for it too!

It's at the wonderful Shangri La...which is held at the Carlton Club,Prestwich ...about 200m from the Heaton Park Metrolink station.  Its a wonderful night regardless of us being there.  Tonight's other acts include Ben Mellor ("Spoken word guru, won the 2009 BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam, nuff said check him out") and Little Rach ("a wee folkie with a punk spirit).  Copies of our latest EP will be available, too.

......cheap beer,free haribo,raffle and pies only a fiver......

What better way to kick-start your weekend?!

Well done Ollie!

Well, Ollie had his debut performance on Friday and wow, we smashed it.  We have notched it up, guys.  We have entered a whole new dimension with a live drummer and as a foursome have really found where we're at - and enjoying every bloody minute of it!

Thanks to the fantastic audience for creating such a great atmosphere, for buying CDs, for supporting live music and a great night, as always, organised by Jo and gang - Shangri-La! is a once-a-month event and one of the best nights out you could ask for.  Fabtastic entertainment, great people and won't break your bank.  Check it out.

We'll Be Back!  Meantime, our gig list continues to grow - various doodles in the pipeline, lots going on - keep your eye on us!
