Neon Dolls are a four-piece Indie Rock/Alternative band from Leeds.
The band consists of Tom Axe (Vocals) who lives in South Leeds with the Frontman Robert Walker from Leeds based band named Phoenix Project, whom have their first gig at Verve Bar on Merrion Street on the 12th November. Next up is Sean Hatherley (Guitars/Backing Vocals) originally hailing from Sheffield, Sean now calls Bradford home where he lives with his son Ethan and partner Amanda, both of which are huge Neon Dolls fans.
Michael Jarvis (Drums) is the rhythm holding the songs together with his funky beats and intricate fills, Michael is a quiet soul but his drums definitely are the polar opposite. Finally, we have Fernando Manresa (Bass) who, as his name suggests travelled to England from the beautiful country of Argentina and here he found the Neon Dolls.
Neon Dolls have gathered a large and loyal following in Leeds and every gig they play is full of friendly faces and an abundance of Neon Dolls T-shirts. Although they have not ventured very far outside Leeds, they have a winter tour coming up. The tour kicks off with a huge hometown gig on the Friday 4 November 2016 at the infamous Key Club to celebrate the launch of their Second Album “When It Strikes”.
As support they have hand-picked some of West Yorkshire’s finest, Ormstons are a Bradford based band fronted by Jess Huxham whom brings her soulful lyrics and powerful voice to ensure everyone attending is up on the dancefloor. Edgar Duke are the next band on the bill and with their funky guitars and heart pounding drums they bring an essence of blues to this already diverse line up. Those Delta Wolves (Soon to be Skull) are the final act on the list before the Neon Dolls, their filthy riffs and dirty bass-lines get everyone fired up and ready to rock.
The tour also consists of gigs in places such as Birmingham, London and Nottingham, plus many more, check out the Neon Dolls’ Facebook page for full details and where the gigs are held and how to purchase tickets.
