The Brandy Thieves EP Launch


The Brandy Thieves EP Launch

The Brandy Thieves had their first EP launch at The Basement on 31 August 2013. I had been watching the build up to this one on various social networks and knew it was going to be a night to remember and with support from Naomi Perera, The Midbeats, The Ghoulies and The Simpletones it was one of the biggest nights on the Leicester launch night calender.

Their new EP ‘Stories from the Cellar’ has been highly anticipated and playing to a packed crowd they got everyone dancing and singing with a mixture of tracks from the new EP and also some unreleased material.

The Brandy Thieves broke onto the scene this year after getting through to the OBS finals and have since stole the show wherever they play. Their biggest gig to date has been The Strawberry Fields Festival and since then their Ska-Reggae-Folk sound has been infectious listening to anyone that hears them.

What was different about this EP launch was how it was funded as The Brandy Thieves called on their fans to help fund the EP through a crowd funding account.

Crowd funding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people for a small amount of money to help finance a business or project. In return the people making the appeal will offer certain things or services back to the crowd fund.

To date The Brandy Thieves have raised £553 of their £700 target offering signed EP’s, gig tickets and the chance to have them perform in a venue of the funders choice. Their Crowd Funder account can be found HERE where you can help them reach their target and get some exclusive items for yourself.

Without a doubt The Brandy Thieves are one to watch over the coming years and they are sure to be heading onto the national stage in the near future.
