Friday 6th April 2018

Start time: 9pm

MAKER - album launch!

A very special 'local' ablum launch party for Medway Rockmeisters MAKER. Their new album "Dead Ends and Avenues" is released today, and they'll be playing tunes from it right here at the Ship! The "official" launch is on Sunday 8th in Manchester, so this is an ultra-groovy, pre-lauch "home turf" gig, especially for us local types!
CDs and Double gatefold vinyl albums will be available for sale on the night

Described as ''ROCK N ROLL GOLD'' by 'Louder Than War', MAKER are Alessandro Marinelli (Vocals), Andrew Donaldson (Guitar), Gavin Donaldson (Drums) & John Austin (Bass) an authentic rock n roll band with a psychedelic bluesy punch, stirred with a fist full of soul.

Renown for their electric live performances, MAKER's influences range from the early blues legends through the stomping pop and soul of the sixties, to the raw power of punk.

Coming on like the love child of The Rolling Stones, The Faces, Led Zeppelin, T-Rex & Primal Scream; MAKER deliver a fresh sonic swagger defined by their own bluesy, boozy guitar riffs.

The band have headlined many of the UK’s most prestigious venues, including 100 Club London as part of ‘Best of British Blues Explosion’ 2017, supported the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, Dodgy, Wilko Johnson, The Slydigs and shared festival bills with The Cribs, Dizee Rascal, Mark Ronson, & Supergrass to name a few.
