Aiming to kickstart your weekend with a night of rock ‘n’ rollin’ goodness, Teesside fuzzy rockers The Shakin’ Nightmares gear up to present a series of shows at Middlesbrough’s Base Camp, complete with some out of town guests and local friends.

They promise their regular Friday Nightmares gigs will feature “raw bands and a carefree vibe”, as Ryan from the band explains: “It’s a place to let loose after a busy week with some kindred souls. The line-ups will be fuzzy, punk, trashy, garagy, high energy and fun.”

The inaugural event will take place on Friday 6th May and they more than deliver on their promises with the line-up. Hartlepool’s Marines kick off proceedings with their punk-derived raucous racket, Halifax blues rock duo The Hazy Janes bring their bouncy beats and big riffs, and The Shakin’ Nightmares themselves take the headline billing, topping the night off with a healthy dose of party-starting riffs and rock ‘n’ roll vibes.

Ryan explains their thinking behind the line-up. “Marines have this fresh energy and unlimited creative vision, they’re big and noisy, so it’s gonna be really cool to see what they grow into. The Hazy Janes are a ridiculously good power duo making some cool blues rock tunes and they put on an energetic live show – they’re the ideal band for your Friday night.”

With more shows in the pipeline, including a summer special in July, Friday Nightmares will make your rock ‘n’ roll dreams come true.
