HK Return to Ye Olde Foundry

On 13th April 2019, Harlequin’s Kiss will be joining Tyrannosaurus Nebulous and Buzzard for a night of pure rock fury. Details are TBC, but we’re told that the night is going to be free entry. Some of you may remember T. Nebulous from Mayday Meltdown II a few years ago, when we debuted our EP, Playing Rough.

Tyrannosaurus Nebulous are a four piece hard rock band from Stourbridge in the Black Country. They released their face melting E.P. ‘Deal With My Evil’ to rave reviews and extensive worldwide radio airplay. The single ‘TLK’ was playlisted on the UK’s leading rock radio station, Planet Rock for 8 weeks.

Buzzard are increasingly earning a strong reputation for being a live act that not only provide a tight energetic performance, but also encourage fun crowd engagement. Buzzard are an ever evolving interesting live band and pack a big musical punch for three passionate individuals, whom offstage are very approachable down to earth people who love to hang out with fans, meet amazing new people and enjoy good music.

Giant and the Georges

Zingy hook lines, tangy riffs and vocal harmonies sweeter than honey. Giant and the Georges are dynamic performers, who specialise in composing peculiar yet annoyingly catchy tunes!


Molly-Anne is a young and upcoming musician from Gloucestershire, looking to make an positive impact. With a soulful, country inspired sound fused with elements of indie folk, Molly accompanies herself on the harmonica and acoustic guitar.

Danny McMahon

Danny McMahon has written commercially for paramount songwriting for a number of years but never saw himself on the front line until he attending Country2Country Festival, London in March 2017. The experience led him to write lyrics that he felt he could only communicate due to the honest and personal nature of his new authentic and melodic sound.
