Local band Kreuz talk to Darwen Online

Local band, Kreuz, who are playing on the main stage (amonst other venues) at this years' Darwen Live will be updating readers of Darwen Online with regular updates.

The band, who have seen a lot of success despite being together less than a year, say that they have gained local popularity through word of mouth, dedication and commitment. If you want to read more about the band please read our original article: Darwen Live: One to watch or visit their myspace page.

The band have agreed to write regular articles to keep Darwen Online visitors updated on their progress throgh the music world. No doubt there will be some ups and downs along the way, but I for one, really enjoy the music they produce and feel confident they will see huge success. Below is their first contribution:

"Wednesday the 20th May saw yet another success for the Darwen hot shots Kreuz, the venue was ' The Studio ' Manchester and the task in hand was to qualify through an even tougher 'Stage 2 ' of the biggest national competition for un-signed bands.

The event organisers Surface unsigned had already moved Kreuz' set date for Stage 2 from Monday the 18th to Wednesday the 20th May making ticket sales and final arrangements somewhat difficult.

Kreuz guitarist Glenn Evans recalls "We had to pay £20 per car to park in Manchester city centre, and whilst we were there our bass player Simon Pickup came face to face with one of the actors in Hollyoaks. Simon said hello only to be ignored in a true celeb fashion!"

Just to participate in this kind of event is difficult, the point scoring system during the early stages is made up of text votes, points for tickets sold by bands and musicians get to vote for each other, so in theory technically poor bands can qualify at the expense of a more talented band.

Later in the competition there will be an industry vote which is basically a judging system and makes more of bands and there individual talents. The band will now compete in the regional semi final at Manchester Academy mid July, a coach trip is being planned so if you are interested in supporting the band please call Cindy on 07930759471 tickets will include entry to the venue and return coach fare from Darwen.
