deaf“Deaf By Thirty”, one of Northamptonshire’s leading rock covers bands, are in need of a new vocalist/front man for their line up as soon as possible. Have you got what it takes?!


Deaf By Thirty have been gigging now for 10 years, and are fully established on the circuit. With a full calendar of gigs already booked up for 2015, and the remainder of 2014, this is an enviable position for any local covers band and local musician. All of the hard work of establishing the band, the name and the contacts has already been done!




deaf2Deaf By Thirty need someone who can initially practice once a week, until they are performance ready, and then able to gig, on average, two weekends a month. After that, it’s rather low maintenance, and maximum reward! Own transport preferred, but not essential.

Visit www.deafbythirty.co.uk for more information on the band, our set, audio, video and reviews.

A fantastic FREE event for our community!

Northampton Bands is proud to sponsor and manage this year’s Metal Stage at The Penny Whistle! \m/


The Northampton Music Festival is a free annual event designed to celebrate Northampton’s rich music culture.  Now in its 8th year, the central ethos is to raise the profile of Northampton through music, to provide a showcase for the broad range of musicians and artists that are based in the town, and to provide a community-focused gathering which invites all to join in a festive celebration of our music scene. 

The festival is organised by Northampton Music 365 – a not for profit community group, in partnership with Northampton Borough Council.

In addition to the annual festival – Northampton Music 365 are developing a range of yearlong initiatives to raise the profile of the Town and the Town Centre through musical activity and promotion.

Our aim is to work in partnership with the local music community, to support initiatives and to provide a hub where others can promote and showcase music.  We hope to provide a central umbrella where all the musical initiatives of the town can work together, cross promote and develop wider opportunities for the town.

If you are a musician, promoter, venue, community group or just a music fan and want to get involved please drop us a line via the Get Involved page.
