Nine Violets

From Monday onwards, band of the week on Tameside Radio's Local Music Spotlight feature are Nine Violets.

The band are an authentic Indie band that originated several years ago. Since forming, the band have embarked on a journey of creating and performing their own original material.

The band is led by hugely talented cousins Paul Copley and Matt Johnson, Matt being a pro musician who now also fronts hit recording sixties band The Fourmost. Nine Violets have so far been selective with live dates, but their annual highlight as a band is gracing the stage of Liverpool's legendary Cavern Club each year, a venue that holds great significance to both Nine Violets and The Fourmost, as the spiritual home of heroes The Beatles, and as a venue, The Fourmost were regular performers at in the sixties.

Nine Violets live gigs are full of energy and excitement, and a band who hopefully we will see and hear more of over the coming months. The band are a fusion of indie rock and alternative pop, with a heavy influence of the great bands of the indie and rock n roll world from across the decades, and amazing Britpop scene. Nine Violets will be played on every weekday show on Tameside Radio between 6am and 7pm all of next week.

The band also joined the team on The Dave Sweetmore Show last Monday night, you can listen again via the OnDemand section of the website.
