Gunmakers Arms tonight

There has been a last-minute change of line-up at this evening’s show at the Gunmakers Arms. Charlotte Young is unfortunately unable to perform. Instead we’re proud to present Redditch-based acoustic duo Act of the Risen.

Act of the Risen is an energetic acoustic act from redditch and Wolverhampton who do a wide range of covers and original and are always looking to push.

We’re on the 2.30pm show and tickets are available both online and through the band. Just email us at harlequinskiss.band@gmail.com. Tickets are £5 in advance and the show will feature a host of talented local acts over a 2-hour session.

On Sunday 5th November, we’ll be headlining the Gunmakers Arms in Birmingham as part of their regular run of Sunday night music. With support from Charlotte Young, this is a free event at a venue that we have a lot of affection for. The show starts at 7.00pm, although the venue is open all afternoon beforehand.

We’re pleased to announce that we’re joining Forever Sabbath on stage at the Giffard Arms on 24th November.

Harlequin’s Kiss at The Victoria

Harlequin’s Kiss are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed a video audition for this year’s national Soundwaves Music Competition. This means that we will be competing in the live auditions in Birmingham along with a number of other bands.

Harlequin’s Kiss will be performing in the second afternoon audition on 4th November at 2.30pm. As you can guess from the headline, this will be at one of Birmingham’s best-loved small venues, The Victoria. For the small sum of £5, you can be there to support us, as well as see some of the finest West Midlands musical talent on stage with us.

Tickets will be available on the door, and can be bought in advance here. When filling out the order form, remember to select “Birmingham Live Auditions (4th November)” and showtime “2.30PM”. It’ll be a boost if you fill our name out in the fan box.

Besides the prestige of playing in the Victoria, what this competition offers us is the possibility of playing the main stage at the local O2 Academy, and the possibility of joining a UK tour. The competition is judged on performance and musicianship, but having some of our favourite harlequins in the building with us can’t hurt.

The Victoria is at 48 John Bright Street, Birmingham, B1 1BN.

5th November – support confirmed

We’re pleased to announce that for our show at the Gunmakers Arms we will be supported by no less a talent than Charlotte Young.

Young is a country singer-songwriter from the West Midlands. A frequent traveller and performer, she is constantly creating new music and new experiences. Inspired by the country greats and classic rock icons, she is bringing a little bit of Nashville to Birmingham.

Harlequin’s Kiss in Redditch this Friday

Roadhouse Show Cancelled

We apologise to anyone who’s travelling down for our “featured act” spot at the Roadhouse’s open mic night tonight. We have been informed by the venue that a power issue has forced them to close this evening. We will be back for a standard slot sometime this month, and we’re working with the organiser to set a new date.

Gig Announcement: Gunmaker’s Arms

Harlequin’s Kiss will be back by popular demand at Birmingham’s Gunmaker’s Arms on 5th November.

Now run by the Two Towers Brewery, the Gunmaker’s Arms is the scene of the band’s debut gig back in June 2012. Every time we have played there, we’ve received a universally enthusiastic response, and we’re looking forward to joining their regular run of musical Sunday evenings. We hope to announce support bands soon.

The Gunmaker’s Arms is at 92 Bath St, Birmingham, B4 6HG.

Roadhouse Featured Act

We’re pleased to announce that Harlequin’s Kiss will be the Featured Act at the Roadhouse’s regular Monday open mic night on Monday 4th September. We’ll be bringing our full (short) show – bear and all – for the half hour slot. This gig will mark the official debut of our new rhythm guitarist Nathan Howells.

Roadhouse open mic regulars will have seen Nathan with us when we’ve played regular slots over the last few months. He’s a perfect fit for the band, and we think he’s ready to take the stage with us fully. So come on down and show some love.

The Roadhouse is at Wharfside Leisure Complex, Lifford Lane, Stirchley, Birmingham, B30 3DZ.
