A band of indie rockers are looking forward to playing in front of a dedicated local following at a venue they call home.

The Fleeting Minds headline the bill for tonight’s show at the Voodoo Lounge at Mama Liz’s in North Street, Stamford.

The Stamford and Peterborough-based quartet formed in November 2009 and built up their fanbase playing regular shows at the venue.

They are currently signed to IAMJ Records, based in Stamford, and released their first single “She’s My Rock ‘n’ Roll” in July last year.

IAMJ owner James Brown works closely with the band. He said: “They blend atmospheric elements of the 1960s and the memorable tunes of the 1990s, giving rise to a modernistic mix of Brit pop, indie and rock.

“They are four outstanding artists with the capability to capture any audience with their dynamic vocals and captivating riffs.”

Members John Quinn, on vocals and guitar, John Dalton on guitar, Paul Blant on drums and backing vocals and Louis Speed on bass list The Beatles, The Who, Paul Weller and Oasis among their influences.

They play regularly in Peterborough and London to ever-increasing audiences, but have not forgotten their Stamford roots.

James added: “The local music scene is buzzing we have built up quite a dedicated following around Stamford and Peterborough.

“In the past we have put on coach trips to London where local fans can come and support us. It’s a great night out.

“But our home is of course Mama Liz’s. We love the atmosphere and the people, we have played there so many times we have lost count.

“It has that real raw music venue feel and the guys do an amazing job organising these nights.

“They have created a base of which bands like us can use as a platform to build a local following, which is vital for us. This weekend is going to be a great night and we can’t wait to get on stage.”

Tonight’s show will be opened by Oakham band The, with guitarist Richard Gombault also on the bill. Doors open at 9pm and tickets are £4 on the door. Visit for more.
