The details of the previously announced 40th Anniversary Celebration Gig, marking Plankton Records 40th anniversary as a record label, have now been finalised.
“It’s going to be a great evening”, confirmed Plankton partner Keith Dixon ” We’ve got four great artists lined up who all play different styles and genres of music – so there will be something for everyone!
The evening will kick-off with acoustic singer-songwriter MATT JR HURLEY, who released the EP ‘Raising Questions’ with us in 2016. He’ll be followed by FRESH CLAIM who are fronted by Plankton’s founding partner Rev Simon Law. They will be playing their usual blues influenced rock and also Simon’s brand new song that he’s recorded for our new compilation album – more of that another time. Next we have Martin Trotman and Steve Bassett from NINE BEATS COLLECTIVE. They will be sharing some songs from the brilliant 2017 album ‘Nine Beats to the Bar’ with the backing of another band and I’ll be interviewing them both too. And to close off the evening we the fantastic ECHO who will be bringing us their joyous motown and classic soul covers with a twist of faith! So we’ll end the night on our feet!
We’ve got at least 2 new products released on that day too so it’s going to be a real night to remember – and all for only £5. Just get yourself there – no excuses”
