Back in January we were thrilled to tell readers about Epic Studios’ newest team member, Rick Lennox, who was brought in as our Live Music Manager in the new year. Now that Rick has had a few months to settle in, we thought it would be a good time to catch up, see how things have been going for him at Epic and share the current Epic Studios music calendar with our readers.
I asked Rick how he has found the last few months with us, if he is happy with the way things are shaping up for Epic Studios’ music events and which music event he is personally most excited about. This is what he had to say:
“My first 3 months at Epic Studios have been excellent. I’ve been made very welcome and I’ve been busy booking in shows. I’m particularly excited about Earthship (with 4 local supports) the two Metropolis shows (with more local supports) and Shalamar who are here in October.
We have been inundated with requests to become a support act since our announcement that we are looking for local talent to match up with headliners, so a big thank you to all the artists who have sent in their material. This is ongoing, so I still want bands to write to us as you never know what’s around the corner..!”
We have some fantastic bookings coming up at Epic Studios, with Rick’s busy music programme also complimented by occasional shows from Eddie Griffiths (of Upsurge Promotions). Those of you who are regular visitors to our website events page will have noticed a full music calendar for the months ahead, featuring names such as The Vapors, Earthship and The Skints, with much more to be announced shortly.
We think we have all tastes covered but judge for yourselves – you can view our latest list of confirmed acts and dates below.
