As part of this year’s city wide Oxjam music festival Telford’s Warehouse is proud to host 3 fantastic local bands in aid of the charity Oxfam.

The Queens Minions

Dirty rock and roll blues band!

The Black Butterfly

Raised by Wolves in the middle of Chester’s fountains roundabout, THE BLACK BUTTERFLY expanded upon a foundation of raw rock n’roll to a create a heady, sour-mash blend of rhythm & melody somewhere between the desert thirst of a spaghetti western, sleazy, whore-house blues and the later days of the Beatles psychedelia. This was not intentional. More so the natural reflection of a million influences and 5 souls indentured to making music, their own way & for their own reasons. Through a wall of guitars the songs tell stories of the sea, the bloodstream, luck, lust and redemption from heavy crime. With feet firmly on the floor and their heads high in the clouds, the band are working hands-on with independent labels to create their own means to record a full album this year; creating their own studio, their own scene and promotion for themselves and other artists of all kinds – music, film and visual arts – definitely ones to watch for 2014.


Sparrowhawks’ beautifully crafted songs grasp the imagination with the slick proficiency of the woodland hunter the band takes its name from. Experiencing these songs is to feel the imagination swoop and nosedive through complex time-shifts before soaring with delicious harmonies that almost fly you too close to the sun.

This is a complete and mature sound created by a band whose first two free EPs have captivated audiences across Wales and the north West, securing them a BBC Radio Wales session late in 2013.

BBC Radio Wales DJ Adam Walton has championed this band from the beginning writing that Sparrowhawks

“elicit sunshine on your eyelids like no band I have heard come out of “my” part of the world hitherto. That they do it with such effortless, unshowy sophistication is scattering smiles across my inflatable face like you would not believe.”
