Which local bands to see at Pub in the Park
Two Weeks in Nashville

Two Weeks in Nashville: July 8 evening session

“Two Weeks in Nashville is made up of Billy LeRiff, Marc Deluca and Ian Wilson. We’ve been playing together for three years and our sound takes the nostalgia bands of our childhood  such as U2, Coldplay, Pulp, The Rolling Stones and The Killers, all set to a modern palette. We also look up to current artists such as Sam Fender and Inhaler. We came up with our band name after spending two weeks in Nashville. That trip really defined who we were in terms of songwriting and our band’s ethos, so it seemed only right to reflect that in the name.”






The Paul Dunton Orchestra


The Paul Dunton Orchestra: July 10 afternoon session

“I like to describe us as a unique cross-over orchestra providing an atmospheric fusion of alternative and pop with a classical twist. We take influences from lots of artists including Pink Floyd, Elbow, ELO, Turin Brakes, Massive Attack, Damien Rice and also a few contemporary composers such as Samuel Barber, Ludovico Einaudi, John Barry and Hans Zimmerman. The Orchestra also performs some of my own original compositions too. The line-up consists of 8 violins, 4 cellos, a guitar, flute, bass and percussion with Paul on vocals and piano, Charlotte Andrew and Poppy Raine as lead vocalists.”






The Charlie Rivers Band


The Charlie Rivers Band: July 9 afternoon session

“The Charlie Rivers band started in late 2008, and we have been through many different versions and line-ups between then and now. Our current one is a five-piece acoustic rock band and includes the band’s founder Charlie Rivers on lead vocals and guitar, Ashley Rushman on drums, Dalma Gebe on violin, Steve Mealing on bass and Wayne Brummer playing lead guitar. American and country bands heavily influence us but we play a very wide variety of styles. Some of our influences include Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Pearl Jam, Coldplay and Luke Coombs.”






Suncharmer Ã¢â€™Â¸ Grim Valentine Freelance


Suncharmer: July 9 evening session 

“We are a four-piece indie rock band consisting of Paul Crisp (vocals/guitar), Josh Brice (guitar), Sam Dann (bass) and Jasper Morris (drums). We have been writing and performing our own material since we were brought together on a lonely Valentine’s Day in 2016. Our sound combines influences from both music and film to create a vibrant blend of modern indie injected with 70s riff-rock and surf music. A few of our main influences include The Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and T. Rex.”
