Talk about making a splash...

Blackpool teenagers The Blue Waves are, well, making waves on the North West music scene.

Fresh from supporting Las Kellies at Blackpool Cricket Club the boys are gearing up for their biggest date yet.

OK, so you’ll have to drive away from the Fylde coast to catch them.

But a chance to perform at Manchester’s Academy 3 isn’t to be sniffed at.

That’s where the boys are headed on Saturday 31 May where they’ll be performing alongside Fly Casual and other special guests.

It’s a superb opportunity for the unsigned band who are attracting some real interest.

Vocalist and guitarist George Edmondson is excited to be on the bill.

He said: “It’s a great place to go as an unsigned band.

“We know some really big names have played there in the past.

“We can’t wait for the night.”

Before that there’s a trip to The Cotsworlds for the band as they appear at the Lechlade Festival – staged this weekend.

“We don’t just want to play around the local area,” said George. “We want to get heard, that’s what it’s all about.

“We want to do as much as possible, wherever we can. It’s all about creating a buzz.”

But fear not, you can still catch them in the next couple of months.

They’ll be braving the elements to play at the bandstand in Stanley Park on July 28.

And before that there’s a trip to South Shore to headline at the Old Bridge on Lytham Road.

Also planned is a show at Manchester’s Retro Bar on June 8 with more gigs sure to follow.
