Private Garden are a rock trio formed in Cyprus in 2019. The band consists of singer/guitarist Nikolas Christodoulou, Max Daniels on Bass and Stefanos Meletiou on Drums. The band sound is a blend of garage and grunge rock with dominating heavy riffs, bluesy vocals and beefy drum grooves. Their debut EP titled Mr Tv contains four songs and is ready to be released later this year.
Symbiosis is a 4-piece Rock band that was formed in 2010 and over the years has had a lot of success playing both venues and concerts across the island. There have been many changes to the line up but the one constant has been Jay Georghiades, the front man, guitarist and founder of the band. Joining him on stage are Konstantinos Chekmak (lead guitar), Kiril Todorov (bass and backing vocals) and Sergei Sergienkov (drums). Their aim is to play famous and much-loved Rock Anthems that are instantly recognizable to almost all ages and guarantee to get the crowd going. This coupled with high energy whilst on stage makes them a must-see band. Their fan base is in the thousands across Cyprus and they have every intention on building on that by doing what they do best! If you see them advertised on a gig line up, you must go and see what all the fuss is about and, in the meantime, keep Rocking!
Side Effects perform an eclectic mix of rockabilly and blues rock with Stefanos Ioannides (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Stelios Frangos (electric guitar, sexy dancing), Ian Richard Cole (bass, backing vocals) and Fidias Ferekides (drums, backing vocals). Born of a desire to spread their infectious love of rock’n’roll with roots, blues and funk rock influences, Side Effects are working on their 1st EP - 'My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Jazz', a notable concoction of genres to make you dance, smile and rebel against the oppressors.
Marios Danos & The Dizzy Bees, usually a Power Rock Trio that swings from Blues to Rock and covers songs from past decades will transform into a 4-piece band with a subtle taste of Psychedelia and improvisation which unfolds the textured and atmospheric vibe that defines their sound. This time they have a special treat for you as they will add the sultry melodies of a saxophone to their well-established soundscapes. The band consists of founder Marios Danos (lead vocal, guitar), Donn Torres (bass, backing vocals) and Dimitris Panayides (drums). This time they will have Marios Papares joining them on stage with his sexy sax.
The event will be amplified by The Sunset Sound, so expect crisp tunes, as always!
