Music lovers... Good people... We invite you to the launch, of a new monthly music extravaganza, at one of Birminghams best up and coming central venues, The Night Owl

Its with excited pride that we bring you

The Loaded Acoustic Sessions

Each month, the aim is to bring some of the biggest names on the solo/acoustic/singer songwriter circuit, to a relatively small space.

So, to kick things off, who better than a music giant, all the way from York...

Chris Helme

Chris first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire post The Stone Roses band The Seahorses which saw him touring extensively and sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones, U2 and Oasis in numerous support slots.

Now solo- he is still rightfully remembered for Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun – songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance.

Chris’ enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it’s his last album, The Rookery’s which has a knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Chris’ keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages which resonate even more deeply. Melodies rooted in traditional folk are reimagined on an album of rich variation, testament to his most powerful weapon – his voice.


We have some fantastic support lined up for you lucky lot.

Samuel Rogers Music

After a few years gigging in-and-around Birmingham at gig events and local festivals as a solo acoustic artist from the age of sixteen, Samuel Rogers then managed to ensemble his own band together in mid 2013.
2014 was a progressive first year for The Samuel Rogers Band (known as The S.R.B); starting the year by releasing their debut EP 'Turn It Up!!!' in January (the title track was played on BBC WM Introducing). Then gigging at venues and local festivals in Birmingham, developing their ever expanding and faithful fan base (known as 'The S.R.B Army') and branched out of their hometown to do gigs in London and Liverpool to name a few places, as well as supporting Stone Foundation and The Moons within the year.



Ryan Evans

Ryan Evans is a young singer songwriter from The Midlands,UK

Jane James

Jane James is a solo singer-songwriter and guitarist from Birmingham, with a captivatingly powerful low voice, words of a poet and the ability to entice. Jane has been playing for a few years now on the Birmingham circuit, always leaving the audience wanting more.



With a line up as good as the one above, it is absolutely criminal to charge just a fiver, but yes ladies and gents, for the price of a fancy coffee, you get to be entertained by a few individuals, who live and breathe music, who spend their spare time writing, rehearsing and doing their utmost to deliver you a performance you wont forget.

Live music and the venue it bellows from, needs its audience as much as it needs the artist, so grab yourself a ticket, and come and show your support.
