Glastonbury native Nick Parker began performing in his early teens with folk/rock/skiffle band ‘Why?’. Over the next decade, he graced stages across the UK and Europe. In 1998, he transitioned to the guitar band ‘Tobermory’, which disbanded in 2004. In 2010, Nick launched his solo career, releasing four albums, including 2020’s ‘Make Siddowda – Live from Worcester’.

Nick has shared stages with acts like The Wedding Present and Frank Turner, and supported tours for Levellers and Skinny Lister. His upbeat songs often carry a touch of satire, inviting audience participation.

Es Tut Mir Leid – Nick Parker and the False Alarms

Nick, with his band, ‘Nick Parker and the False Alarms’, are described as a folky/rocky/country ensemble. They recently added multi-instrumentalist John Leonard to the lineup. Nick’s video-making talents have garnered attention, including inclusion in the Leeds International Film Festival.

In 2022, Nick toured Europe with Levellers, both solo and with the False Alarms, after two years of postponements.

No strangers to the Marrs Bar, Abdoujaparov, formed in 1998 by Les Carter (also known as Fruitbat) after the disbandment of Carter USM, takes its name from Tour De France cyclist Djamolidine Abdoujaparov. Drawing inspiration from the chaotic and jubilant sounds of 1977 Punk Rock & New Wave, the band has released eight EPs, four singles, and six albums on Spinach Records. With over 600 performances worldwide, ranging from intimate clubs to major festivals, Abdoujaparov has garnered a dedicated following.

In 2020, they unveiled two limited-release lockdown singles, both of which sold out within 24 hours. Their sixth album, “Race Home Grow Love,” hit shelves in 2021. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut studio album, “Air Odeon Disco Pub,” the band held a sold-out show at London’s 100 Club in 2022, performing the album in its entirety for the first time.
