Live! is a live music event designed to get you moving and put a smile on your face. All the music you hear you will recognise, and if you don’t you’ll love it anyway! We’ve designed the line-up so build you up to a point where you’re totally lost in the moment. For this event, we’ve enlisted 2 bands and a solo artist. So, without further ado lets introduce them...

Luke is a local lad (Shaftesbury School Alumni) who has gone from a small band, to pursuing a career in music. He has performed in the Southampton Area Open Mic UK Competition, where he reached the finals! He writes his own music as well as covering some classics in his own, unique way. He’s what you might call a bedroom artist, writing and producing his own tracks at home on a shoestring budget. Platform Music UK is giving him this stage to boost his career, increase his exposure, but mostly to let him do what he loves doing – performing on a stage.

I can’t comment on what Shaun did, however, we can tell you that these guys are not only a bunch of sound lads, but also quite talented musicians. Comprising of Sam Potter, Shaun Ryder and Geoff Coward and playing keys, acoustic guitar, cajon drum and a ukulele – they certainly deliver a unique kind of performance.

Geoff himself, not only runs a barber shop, but has also embarked on a mission to raise £500 for C.A.L.M. which is the Campaign Against Living Miserably. This is a charity that helps men with mental health problems and endeavours to reduce the suicide rate of men. They way Geoff is going about this is by busking in local towns, which is very admirable.

Where to start with these guys… They’re a band from Weymouth who find great pleasure in delivering an unforgettable performance with their sets. The energy produced in their performances is almost unparalleled in the area. They’ve filled venues from Dorset all the way to The Alps, where they toured at the beginning of this year. They’ve performed for BBC Introducing in the South, they’ve captured audiences in their thousands at festivals across the region, and now they’re coming for you. Their performances often consist of covers of well-known songs that suit them so well, and their sets are totally seamless. To say they put their all into their performance would simply be an understatement.

Dorchester Arts - Skimmity Hitchers
Venue: Dorchester Corn Exchange, High East Street, DT1 1HF
Date: Fri 28th Apr 2017
Time: 8:00 pm
Cost: £11/£9

Since 2010 the Skimmity Hitchers have been ploughing a furrow through the West Country music scene unlike any other band. Their gigs are the stuff of legend – part hoedown, cabaret and folk-punk free-for-all – but always entertaining. These cider-drinkin’, badger-botherin’ reprobates are regulars on the festival circuit and we’re delighted to bring them back to Dorchester Arts to see if they can top last February’s sold-out show. Support comes from Dorchester’s returning ska-reggae heroes Bluetown Rumble and apocalyptic surf outfit Palooka 5.
