Have Mercy Las Vegas

Think deep Scottish roots, razor sharp Americana, trad and contemporary Appalachia embellished with touches of folk and country blues – do that and you’re halfway there. To complete the picture, add blisteringly tight musicianship and perfectly interlaced harmonies.

HMLV have been described as “an ideal festival band with stacks of energy” by DJ Jim Gellatly. Many agree with him, with the band earning rave reviews of their blistering live performances at festivals up and down the country including in recent years performance at Live@Troon and The Harbour Bar. Stand out performances at Belladrum, Celtic Connections, Hebcelt, Tiree Music Festival and Wickerman have been the highlight, although there have been too many to count.

In addition, the band have been rewarded with performances on BBC’s RAPAL, STV’s Riverside Show and a live broadcast of their set from Belladrum, featuring in the weekends highlights alongside the Manic Street Preachers and Hayseed Dixie. Perhaps the pinnacle however would be the band being one of three hand-picked to represent Scotland at the Country to Country Music festival at one of the UK’s largest music venues, the 02 Arena in London. Earning praise from the organisers, fellow performers and or course the concert goers, HMLV are keen to build on this in 2018.

Two Thieves and The Burning Wood

Two Thieves and The Burning Wood started off as a duo called “Two Thieves” just over five years ago, in Dundee. The need for a bigger and better sound slowly became crucial, so last year they found these three incredibly talented musicians to join the family.

What do they do? They do Country, Bluegrass, Swing, Folk and Roots and boy do they do it well! Having crafted timeless and detailed folk songs over the years with fun, captivating and crystal clean harmonies, they blend in a mix of original tunes and covers into the set so that there is something for everyone listening.

The set will be for fans of Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Tom Waits, Neil Young, J.J Cale and many many more

After releasing their EP last year, they plan to have our album out by the end of 2018 with a tour to follow that.

In the meantime you can enjoy them in full flow in Troon this summer

Awkward Family Portraits

Awkward Family Portraits have been bringing contemporary folk and Americana to the streets of Glasgow since 2016. With a roguish charm and style that elevates them far above the stereotypes of the genre, AFP are a band that have one central goal and that is to get you to abandon all of the outside world’s hang-ups and move.

The brainchild of four like-minded musicians with a wealth of originality and technical skill at their disposal, you only need to catch the briefest glimpse of one of their live shows to feel an insatiable urge to make your way into the crowd and their recent European tour and King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution headline show are clear signs of the potential for growth that resides within their material. 

The Venue

South Beach Sessions found it's new home during WinterStorm Rock Festival Weekend when we set up a stage, a bar and full PA into the "Reception Room" overlooking the beach and prom in Troon Concert Hall. Not only has it the most spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde and the occasional breathtaking sunset it also feels like a real venue! It will be used as standing only, seated and mixed depending on the event taking place and we have 24 nights booked for 2018 already with a mix of rock, folk, bluegrass, Americana, blues, tributes and comedy to come before the end of the year.
The bar is professionally provided by The Harbour Bar in Troon and will offer draft beer as well as bottles, spirits and wines. It is for the moment over 18's only but we are hoping that we can develop the family friendly music theme as we move forward.
The room has a 1980's Student Union feel about it and we're happy with that vibe. Great sound, great views, great artistes. All we need to make it work in the longer terms is YOU!
