Introducing The Bluejays, the UK’s premier 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll band. Performing the classics from the golden era of music, The Bluejays will have any occasion rockin’ and a-rollin’ ‘til the early hours. The Bluejays are made up of some of the finest young Rock ‘n’ Roll musicians in the country. Each member of the band was raised on 50s music so it should come as no surprise that they have all performed in West-End shows such as Buddy, Dreamboats and Petticoats, Save The Last Dance For Me, Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven, Return to the Forbidden Planet and The Roy Orbison Story.

From a young age Nike Jemiyo (right) was immersed in music. By 1999 she had recorded for the Dogma soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios and began training at the Centre for Young Musicians where under the mentorship of Chris Wilson she studied piano, music theory and singing. Nike’s parents met in their church choir and she spent much of her childhood and teenage years singing in different choral groups where her repertoire grew from gospel to include classical chamber music through to modern day pop. Attention around Nike began to peak when people heard her stunning vocal on the quarter of a million times viewed piano remix she created and recorded for the JLS hit The Club is Alive. After tens of thousands of views on piano remixes of Rihanna songs and Use Somebody, the surge in views signalled that things were about to change. Nike’s team began to grow; interns, band members and presenters came on board as work on Nike’s debut EP release Beautiful came to a close and plans for promoting it began.

Big favourites in the Freak offices, The Congo Faith Healers (below) are like no other band and have a totally unique sound and image! Combining swamp infested gypsy blues with wild guitar playing, voodoo vocals, latin american drum and trumpet grooves with rockabilly swing double bass and hooks that you can sing along to instantly, they have one of the most intense and utterly compelling live shows around. As culturally diverse and unique as the bands image and members is also their twelve track debut album released in december 2009, which was recorded by legendary Rolling Stones producer Chris Kimsey. The album is 100% self-financed and the first pressings sold out in just a few days! This band attracts audiences beyond a specific genre, their music is accessible to anyone and this is part of what makes them so unique! They have played with KT Tunstall, Razorlight, Finley Quaye and Supergrass for Radio 1, performed at the HBO True Blood Launch Party as well as Jack Daniels Birthday Party, and with fans that include Ronnie Wood, Franz Ferdinand, Imelda May and Bob Geldof, their reputation as an original and explosive live band is unquestionable.
