The Scene & The Vevars
Special Guest DJ ONO
The Scene are a Wrexham born band consisting of 5 lads and a little lady with a passion for live n loud Indie/Rock music!
Lead singer, Craig Spencer Griffiths remembers “…watching bands like The Who and their performances, taking bits of their songs, inspired me to express my own feelings into words and tell my own stories. I drew from my own experiences and my musical influences and brought them together”.
By 2010 the band felt confident that their original material should be the focus of the band. The band then entered into the Live and Unsigned competition where they won all heats and got to the final at London’s prestigious O2 Arena.
Guitarist Gareth Holmes said “It was great to perform at the O2 Arena. Most importantly we did a few gigs prior to try and keep a local adventure playground open. We also got to take 52 people including some of the children from the scheme to the O2 which was very important to us.”
After coming runners-up in the live and unsigned competition, the band and have expanded their lineup and began a short tour of North Wales in November and December.
Having released and toured their debut EP and supported the likes of Denise Johnson of Primal Scream, Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets), The Charlatans, Shaun Ryder, Ffenech Soler, Dead Sons, Masters in France and Mani of The Stone Roses, 2011 has been an absolute blinder of a year. Look out 2012 – The Scene are coming!
