Virgil and The Accelerators

Artrix kicks off its Autumn music programme on Saturday, September 8th with the visit of Bromsgrove based band Virgil and The Accelerators supported by Albany Down.

Virgil and The AcceleratorsThe three piece blues / rock band of Virgil Mcmahon (guitar), Gabriel McMahon (drums) and Jack Timms (bass) is gigging constantly in its own right – both in the U.K and in Europe – and  is taking the festival season by storm ( viz its recent main stage slot at the Upton Blues Festival ) and has been touring also with the likes of Uriah Heap, Wilko Johnson and Blackfoot.

The sound of Albany Down, is no nonsense rhythm and blues, with a bit of jazz-funk to mix it up – quite ’80s in places – but with contemporary energy.  Paul Jones raved recently about the four piece band on his Radio 2 Show.

The Dance Floor’s down for the show, which starts at 8.00.p.m, and it promises to be a cracking night.

Tickets at £ 12 (£10) are available from the Box Office on 01527-577330 or online at
