Moving Moscow are ready to show East Midlands gig-goers why South Cheshire has made such a fuss of them when they play the Victoria Inn in Derby next month.
The six-piece act, originally from Crewe and partially based in Derby, join actor Paddy Considine’s Riding the Low at the Midland Place venue for what promises to be an entertaining show on Saturday, March 1st.
This follows two well-received debut gigs at The Box in Crewe in November and December, in which promoter Toby Robinson billed them ‘Crewe’s best ever band of all time?’
The bands drummer, Jamie Oliver of George Street, Derby, said:
“We’ve enjoyed a couple of great gigs in our home town.
We didn’t expect so many people to turn up and show their support so we’re all hugely grateful for that.
We think it’s right that we take ourselves around the country now and I can’t think of a better place to start than at the Vic Inn, which I’ve heard so much about for some time now.
It’s a proper music venue with a great atmosphere and we can’t wait for March 1.”
Moving Moscow fuse influences such as 30 Seconds to Mars and Incubus to Bloc Party and Biffy Clyro, showing alt-rock needn’t be a regurgitation of what came before.
Their members have previously shared a stage with the likes of Ash, Feeder and McFly, so expect some competent musicianship and genuine entertainment on the night.
The band are: Dan Parry (vocals), Steve Foster (lead guitar), Simon Halewood (bass), Dean Banks (guitar), Jazz Sladen (keys) and Jamie Oliver (drums).
Riding the Low top the bill on the night. They were formed by frontman Paddy Considine, who is a familiar face to many, having starred in some blockbuster movies such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Hot Fuzz and Dead Man’s Shoes.
The Red Monroes complete the line-up.
