This event has been and gone.
Merseyside hero Ian Prowse has formed two successful bands Pele and Amsterdam. Pele released 3 albums on Polydor/M&G Records. Six singles troubled the lower ends of the UK charts but abroad they scored hits in Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Holland and most notably a Number One in South Africa with ‘Megalomania’. Pele were a noted live act completing nine tours of the U.K.
Ian then formed Amsterdam and their first single for Beat Crazy Records ‘The Journey’ was a UK top 40 single in February 2005. Follow up single ‘Does this train stop on Merseyside’ also hit the UK Charts.
The last Amsterdam album ‘Arm in Arm’ ended up being voted 14th best ever album out of Liverpool by the local press, which when you consider the Beatles released 10 is some feat! Lead off single ‘Home’ was played on 21 consecutive days by Radio 2?s Janice Long.
Companeros has garnered Ian the best reviews of his 25 year career.

Amsterdam are a Merseyside six-piece pop-rock band formed by former Pele singer Ian Prowse who deliver an irresistible blend of soaring melodies and lyrics of heartache. Proud of their musical place of upbringing, the band received much attention with their 2005 single 'Does This Train Stop on Merseyside?' They were invited four times to play live on Janice Long's Radio 2 show and impressed Elvis Costello who invited them to perform with him on BBC1.
