Meeshelle is probably better known as the driving voice of local funksters The Leonard Jones Potential, but has recently been putting together some well received solo sets as well as the occasionally teaming up with Abagail Gray (most recently in support of Duke Special at the Ironworks). No doubt on Thursday you will have the opportunity to hear for yourself her big voice in an intimate surrounding. Panda Su, is no stranger to these parts and will be celebrating the release of her new single, “Maps”, as part of a short tour around Scotland.

Both lads on the bill are also taking a lead from Meeshelle and taking time away from the bands that they front and developing their solo interests. Craig Robertson is lead vocalist of local act the Frues and his solo material, for the most part, is different to that of the band he fronted. Dougie Greig is better known as the lead of Roadway and, although extremely busy recently with a side project with Dave ‘Bucket’ Colwell is taking time out to maintain his individual acoustic material which will see him release his long awaited debut solo acoustic album, ‘Black Water Son’ later in the year.

So come along, sit down, relax and most importantly, enjoy!

Chartered surveyor by day, music reviewer by night, and occasionally I get to use my camera. A strange mix, but one that I enjoy. A chance meeting in the queue for Bella in 2010 led to the opportunity to write for InvernessGigs; a far cry from the days of writing for a football fanzine back in the late 80s, early 90s. My interests lie between the mainstream, the emerging and the local. Increasingly I find that we have more than enough locally to entertain us to necessitate a trip south. I’m always happy to give a listen, whatever the genre. Inverness has a plethora of talent, all of which I am more than keen to write about. If it encourages just one person to make the effort to listen to some new music I’ll be happy. You can contact Frank direct via
