Promoters of a new band night designed to showcase Sheffield’s many musicians have hailed the success of the first event.
Propa Local aims to bring the city’s many unsigned solo artists and bands to wider attention, by attracting record labels, music media and fans to come and see them.
It launched at Plug nightclub in the city centre on Friday with performances from Liberty Ship, The Monday Club and Resonate. Promoter Neil Hargreaves, of Aggressive Management, said: “We’re delighted to say the bands played to a capacity crowd with the audience being made up of music industry people and fans alike.’’
Propa Local returns to Plug on Friday, February 14, with performances from The North, Monoking and The Bone Lab.
Neil said: “We are having a Valentine’s Day special with The North headlining for us after recently being named in the top five bands that will make it on 2014.’’
