Two Door Cinema Club
The Irish Indie-electro-pop three-piece formed in 2007, when founding members Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday met at Bangor Grammar school and subsequently teamed up with Kevin Baird. Characterised by the band's short, sharp songs with punky overtones and indie sensibilities, the County Down boys achieved a UK no.1 album in 2012 with their 2nd release 'Beacon' on French independent label Kitsuné. Their success led them to signing with Parlophone for their 2016 3rd album 'Gameshow'. Their 4th release; 'False Alarm', follows in June 2019.

Coventry's The Specials are without doubt the definitive 2Tone band of their generation. In the late '70s and early '80s they pioneered the new British ska sound and racked up seven Top 10 hits whilst exerting an influence on the fledgling genre that is beyond measure. The band reformed to celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2009 and have since travelled all over the world and sold out hundreds of concerts.

One of the most acclaimed and influential bands of the last four decades, New Order pioneered the electronic sound that helped pave the way for the dance/house music explosion at the end of the '80s. The band has had a profound influence on music and is cited by legions of artists as an inspiration. Their classic 'Blue Monday' remains a seminal electronic anthem to this day. The group reformed for a pair of charity gigs in 2011, replacing original bassist Peter Hook with Tom Chapman. The current line-up is Bernard Sumner (vocals, guitar), Stephen Morris (drums), Gillian Gilbert (keyboards, guitar), Phil Cunningham (guitar, keyboards) and Tom Chapman (bass).
