Special Guest James Ralphs to play at FM Launch Party

We are delighted to announce that we have a special guest in the form of the hugely talented James Ralphs, son of the legendary Mott The Hoople/Bad Company guitarist/songwriter Mick Ralphs.  James will be playing an acoustic set of his songs along with band mate Mat Griffiths with whom he has been collaborating for the past few years.

James Ralphs is a songwriter currently living in Brighton who writes pop music, plays piano, guitar and sings. He listens to Pop, Reggae, Folk, Indie, Jazz, Blues, Dubstep, Hip-Hop and Rock. Within his own music some might say that he takes his influences from artists such as Alex Turner, Jamie T, Jack Penate, Nizlopi, Bob Marley, Jason Mraz, Laura Marling and Mystery Jets. We think James is destined for big things. He is already causing a stir within the music industry and has studio time coming up at the world famous Abbey Road Studios later this year. We love James, so will you.

The guitar giveaway will take place as soon as the boys have had a quick rub down and a beer after their live set. Your numbered admission ticket is what you need to keep safe and sound as the ticket stubs will be used for the draw. Match your ticket with the stub drawn by the band and Bingo! - you’re a winner!  You must be present at the time the draw is made to win the prizes.  Before the main prize we are also giving away the book that was used for jotting things down during the recording of METROPOLIS.  It also contains all the hand-written lyrics to the songs on the album.  As with the guitar, the boys will be more than happy to sign it if the lucky winner wants.

After that it will be at least an hour of mayhem on the decks with DJ Juppy spinning all his and your favourite rock tunes.  As The Superbowl coincides with the Launch Party, American Football fans will be delighted that we have managed to persuade the powers that be at The Roadhouse to keep the club open for this momentous sporting event.

So it’s looking very much like you’d all better remember to throw a sickie at work on the Monday as this will be a very late/drunken/riotous affair.

Not got a ticket yet? Don’t leave it too long and end up being disappointed!

You have been warned!!!
