Nelson Can ‘Apple Pie’ – Volkswagen launches Beetle in China ad campaign

We’ve been following the career of the all female Danish band Nelson Can for a while now and hoping that in the not to distant future we will work with them on a project here in the UK or over in their homeland!

They have such a stand out style that we always look for in bands, so when we saw today that an instrumental version of their track ‘Apple Pie’ was used on an advertising campaign for Volkswagen launching the Beetle in China we were very pleased indeed.

Here’s the original track…

Raptusound – ‘From My Hands’ – debut EP

It’s been a great year for new music and Leicester has produced some of the finest new bands on the scene.

We were first introduced to new alternative electro rock band Raptusound over the summer at Barefoot Festival and Strawberry Fields Festival.

‘From My Hands’ is the debut 4-track EP from Raptusound, featuring the tracks Alibi, Wasted, Always Ready, and Truth Not Fashion. Raptusound have written, arranged, recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered the EP themselves

Stand out track for us ‘Wasted’ – dark and eerie with haunting vocals

‘From My Hands’ is available to buy from iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify, eMusic, and Rhapsody, and is also available on CD from the band

Check out our interview backstage at Strawberry Fields Festival with the boys this summer

The Dash announce next residency launch

Last night The Dash announced the launch night of a three week residency at Powers Bar in Kilburn kicking off on Thursday 11th October 2012.

The band have been described as “Britain’s best Rock ‘N’ Roll band” and we wholeheartedly agree!

Each week they’ll be performing at 9pm, “top and tailed by the finest artists known to humanity“.

The launch night features female fronted soul/folk/rockers Blame Hubert and rock n rollers The Dandies.
We’ve seen The Dash perform many times and knowing their party antics this is a night not to be missed!

We spent the summer with The Dash where they performed at Barefoot and Strawberry Fields festivals. Check out this video we shot with the band on a slightly hungover morning for all involved:

The Dash have been an amazing band for us at Broccoli Events working with us on live music events at venues across the capital, PR campaigns for brands like Nokia, video virals, festivals and more.

We always know we can rely on The Dash to deliver no matter what the client requires and believe you me the clients have asked for some pretty bizarre things…

We programmed the music for the Nokia Comes With Music campaign where bands performed in a pop up juke box at locations all over London to launch the new mobile phone from Nokia.
Here’s The Dash at the rehearsal in a freezing cold warehouse…

We asked The Dash to perform their version of Monty Python’s ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’ for a video viral campaign for a beer brand that we were producing videos for.

Under a veil of secrecy they took us to a roof top in Whitechapel and told us to be prepared to film.
This was up there as one of the top videos out of the series we produced…

We’ll leave you with The Dash performing in the ladies toilets at The 12 Bar, a project we worked on for The Ladies Toilet online trend magazine…

So put 11th October 2012 in your diary for the launch of The Dash residency at Powers Bar in Kilburn where you’ll be guaranteed to see some of London’s finest bands performing over the coming weeks.

BLACK DRUMMER ‘Laburnum House’

At Broccoli we have been following BLACK DRUMMER since they landed in the UK this summer. We were lucky enough to meet and interview the band backstage at STRAWBERRY FIELDS FESTIVAL in Leicester.

New single ‘Laburnum House’ is due to be released next month by Clearcut Records

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:

“Clearcut Records are very happy to welcome Black Drummer on board.

Black Drummer are a fresh new four-piece band fronted by Toby Marriott (son of Steve Marriott – Small Faces/Humble Pie), playing a boisterous mix of texured dance & swaggering rock and roll. They have spent the early half of 2012, deeply buried in a Nashville studio writing, rehearsing and recording their debut release, with multiple Grammy Award winning producer Vance Powell (Jack White, Dead Weather, Kings Of Leon) & Grammy nominated Dave Cobb (Waylon Jennings, Rival Sons, Chris Cornell). The fruits of this recording session can be heard on the ‘Laburnum House‘ EP, which will be released through Clearcut on Oct 29th. The as-yet untitled debut album is penciled for release in early 2013.” (Taken from the website)

Hurry up and get back to the UK boys!!

WebWaterfalls – The TV Programme Machine

“WebWaterfalls is a new way of creating and sharing media online. WebWaterfalls gives you the opportunity to become a TV Producer creating your own TV Channels, or as we call them, Waterfalls”.
webwaterfalls.com

We were approached by the WebWaterfalls team this week to start uploading some content and create our own TV shows using their new media platform.
We thought this is a fantastic concept, we have so much video footage on our Broccoli Events Youtube channel this would be an exciting way to put videos together, start creating our own online shows and share on social media with bands and fans.
We kicked off yesterday testing out the format with interviews and music videos from The Dash, KAV and Buster Shuffle.

Our next show will be aired from 3:30pm today (4/09/2012) featuring music videos, interviews, live gigs and more from Red N Pink.

So how does it work?

“If you think of a Waterfall like a TV Channel, then you can also consider yourself a TV Producer! Just like a TV Channel a Waterfall has Programs that are shown throughout the day. And just like a TV Producer you decide when these programs are shown and what these programs are filled with. Choose from videos, music, photos, websites, feeds, internet radio and more. Most of this content is uploaded by yourself and our community, collected and organized together to create programs you wont find anywhere else. These programs are scheduled to appear at certain times of the day, providing you with the content you want, at the time you want it”.

Simple to use, great fun, well worth checking out.

Video production work – Strawberry Fields Festival 2012

Broccoli Events were back stage at Strawberry Fields Festival 2012 interviewing all the bands performing on the Jam Stage.
We brought the bands into the Jam Lounge for a chat about music, performing at festivals, festival survival tips and more.
We were totally amazed, and very amused, by the amount of bands that brought just one two man tent for the entire band to sleep in over the weekend!

Check out the videos below, we had an amazing time hanging out with bands we’ve worked with before and met some new and incredibly talented musicians who we will hopefully be working with on future event work.

We are now available for video production work.
If you require a similar set up to the videos we produced for Strawberry Fields Festival we can set up a media tent with set for interviews.
We can adapt the set up and content produced to suit your event needs and if required bring in an extra production company if the job requires more cameras and crew.

Send Mikee an email for a rates card.
mikee@broccolievents.com

Festival booking and programming services are also available, we had over 20+ bands performing on three stages at Strawberry Fields Festival 2012.
We have access to a diverse range of genres and always provide bands of the highest quality whether you need a start out band or something more established for your live music event, PR campaign, PR event, private function, video viral or party.

Enjoy the videos…

missdavinalee – Barefoot Festival 2012

We asked missdavinalee where she would like to be interviewed before her set at Barefoot Festival 2012, when she told us “in front of the pencil bins” we had an idea this would be one of the more quirky videos of the weekend.

We’re massive fans of missdavinalee, check out the interview for news on the bands album ‘This Love’, what’s in missdavinalee’s festival survival kit and more.

Music used for the interview is a missdavinalee remix by Eat More Cake, ‘To Fall In Love’.
missdavinalee tells you where you can get the track in the interview.
