STEVE FORBERT: LIVE AT THE VICTORY HALL
Friday 8th February 2019
We are thrilled to welcome acclaimed singer-songwiter Steve Forbert back to Thorner!
Steve had his first major hit back in 1979. Nearly 40 years years later, he’s still writing acclaimed songs having released 14 studio albums, including a Grammy-nominated tribute to Mississippi legend, Jimmie Rodgers. He has seen his songs performed by the likes of Keith Urban, Rosanne Cash and Marty Stuart, been inducted into the Mississippi Hall of Fame – and even appeared opposite Cyndi Lauper in her music video for ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’!
Forbert is one of the few artists who can mesmerize a crowd with nothing but a distinctive voice, an acoustic guitar and his trusty harmonica slung around his neck, letting the purity of his music stand on its own.
Doors 7pm, performance 8pm

HOLY MOLY AND THE CRACKERS: LIVE AT THE VICTORY HALL
Saturday 9th March, 2019
2017 and 2018 have been huge years for Holy Moly & The Crackers. The ever-evolving folk-alt-rock band from Newcastle Upon Tyne released their new album ‘Salem’ in July 2017 to acclaimed reviews, and plugging from BBC Introducing and RadioX.
Following the album release they have toured the UK twice, selling out venues across the country, and made successful debuts in The Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy as well as continuing their success on the festival circuit: They’ve pulled off a much lauded appearance at Glastonbury and appeared at Boomtown Fair, Bestival + Camp Bestival and more, both home and abroad.
'Salem's' lead single, the barnstorming indie-rock anthem ‘Cold Comfort Lane’, was included on major Spotify playlists before being snapped up for TV ads and then used as the end credits track for the 2018 summer blockbuster movie ‘Oceans 8’.
2019 brings Holy Moly & the Crackers back out on the world stage with a brand new album in the Spring, an enhanced confidence and an army of growing fans.
“Do yourself a favour and catch Holy Moly either live or on record. Brilliant.” (Frank Turner)
