What do you get if you cross two guitars and a drumkit and some stylish
young musicians with bicycles? No, there is no punchline, but on
Saturday the 6th October, Bells Bicycles hosted some very special guests at their Hastings shop, a St Leonards based trio who go by the name of The Mariners, who play folk, blues and punk and sing about love, loss, society and seafaring. Heavily influenced by folk and indie-punk with a skiffle-ish feel, the band centres around the song writing partnership of Andy and Carl, with Tom providing tight and expressive rhythm. Playing to a lively crowd, the trio entertained their audience with a variety of their own songs and their take on some of our old favourites.
Set against a backdrop of our beautiful vintage inspired bicycles, it was a great setting and not only were the band able to showcase their songs, the bicycles stood proud too. A fabulous clash and collaboration of music and bicycles, something not to be missed next time! This hopefully will be the start of Bells branching out into holding more events like this, so if this interests you or you have any ideas, why not drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org?
