Muso Magazine 25th Anniversary Bash

Saturday, 2 September 2017 - 6:45pm
 
"In September 1992, a new magazine devoted to the promotion of live music in and around Preston was first published. Born out of a desire to find out who was playing where and when, ‘Muso-Nooz’ featured a comprehensive gig-guide, as well as interviews with local bands, and reviews of gigs and demo tapes.
 
With the name soon shortened to just ‘Muso’, the magazine became essential reading for regular gig-goers and readers were encouraged to write articles to promote their favourite bands.
 
 
The magazine lasted for 7 years, finally coming to an end in 1999, with the advent of the internet and the closure of venues such as The Lamb and The King's Arms being two of the main reasons.
 
Many fans of live music have fond memories of Muso magazine and what was a golden era for live music in Preston. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of publication of the first issue, we are holding this special live music event at The Continental.
 
From the time of the magazine itself we have performances from veteran rockers Pike, singer-songwriter Neil Hunt, and female vocalist Jan Hough. Representing the current generation of musicians will be acoustic duo Adam Williams & Matt Holmes, singer-songwriter James Christy, and Dirty Bare Feet – one of the most exciting bands around at the moment.
 
As well as being a unique opportunity to reminisce about old times and look forward to future generations of live music, The Muso Magazine 25th Anniversary Bash will be raising money for the Nordoff Robbins musical therapy charity."
