THE SLEEVE MOTHS

Thursday 13 August 7.30pm

Mandria Fish & Chips Mandria Village Paphos

Free Entrance

Reservations: Tel: 26422085

Information: www.paphosmusiclovers.com

The Sleeve Moths, made up of just three musicians, is a rock band that deliver a very powerful show, breath taking and energy packed from start to finish. When the three musicians first got together, it was obvious after just one practice session that they instantly gelled. Playing just any rock covers would have been far too simple and was not what they were about at all. After talking about a musical direction, they decided to spend time looking for songs that were not covered by the other bands on the island. Not only did they choose carefully which songs to cover but also started working on interesting arrangements of those songs as well as linking tracks together to form medleys. With the addition of a few original songs, the band hope to offer their audiences something refreshingly different. With Ted’s Joe Cocker style vocals, clever use of guitar synth and effects peddles, John’s bass effects and vocal harmonies coupled with Brian’s drumming technique which ranges from Keith Moon to Stuart Copeland, this three-piece band delivers a power packed performance with a sound you’d expect from a five-piece band. Although they take their music seriously, there is a sense of fun and tongue in cheek humour on stage the whole time. Although they set a very high standard pushing their technical ability to the limit at times, Ted, John and Brian love music and enjoy what they do and that’s what comes over in their performance.

Directions: Head out of Paphos on the main Limassol highway and after about 12Kms, take the Mandria exit, passing Eleouthkia Park on your left, turn left at the T-junction then next right into the village and the venue will be found at the far end of the square on the right.
