We have one more November Gig to announce – as epic hard rock band Voodoo Vegas play for us at Real Time Live in Chesterfield on Thursday November 6th, with support from Manchester based rock band Mohawk Radio, fronted by Bermuda- born singer Mia page Chambray.
Rapidly rising new young quintet Voodoo Vegas’ debut album, ‘The Rise Of Jimmy Silver’, recorded in legendary Rockfield studios and produced by Multi-Brit award winning producer Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Therapy?, Joe Stummer, Enter Shikari) was released in March 2013, and is nothing other than a glorious, guitar driven, melody drenched, hard rock delight. Having honed their skills sharing stages with the likes of Glenn Hughes, Uriah Heep, Fozzy, The Wildhearts, Gilby Clarke, relentlessly touring throughout France, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and the UK, it’s no surprise that Voodoo Vegas’ recent pledge campaign took little more than 24 hours to reach its target, peaking at 344%. Voodoo Vegas have gained a horde of fantastic reviews in internationally recognised publications including Classic Rock, Metal Hammer, Power Play, Fireworks and Big Cheese Magazine. Voodoo Vegas already have a lot of shows booked for 2014 touring around the UK and Europe. “This is what rock ‘n’ roll should sound like now”- Classic Rock Magazine “Raw and explosive rock” “if you’re a fan of Aerosmith or Guns ‘n’ Roses, you’ll definitely listen to Voodoo Vegas on repeat”- Big Cheese Magazine.
At the forefront of Mohawk Radio is Bermuda born Mia Page, whose powerful vocals are a blessing sent down from ‘Rock N Roll Heaven’. Her range and power not only sounds great, but when you add her larger than life stage presence into the mix you have an accomplished rock artist/performer who commands the stage in much the same way as her more famous predecessors, such as how the likes of Cher and Stevie Nicks made an impact with a rock band behind them. She may be born in Bermuda, but she’s fast becoming a Manchester sensation.
Although the focus is on Page and her stage theatrics, it should be noted that the musicians behind her are key to the whole Mohawk Radio package. With a solid rhythm section of Dave Quinn on drums, and Sean Frankland on bass, and the illustrious guitar craft of James Gregory, who’s one of the most innovative in the underground scene, Mohawk Radio have the foundations to create something a little unique and special. They play with all the gusto and passion of a heavy rock band, but peel it back just one simple layer to make the sound so much more captivating and melodious. At times it sounds like stripped back metal that’s restrained, bursting to detonate from its constrictions, but its Page’s control of the tempo of each song that won’t allow it to become too hard hitting, and that’s what makes the band sound so engaging and interesting.
