Press release

New TV show coming in October
"The New Cross Roads Blues Show"

Real Music, Real Fun

Live from The Amersham Arms, New Cross, London we have Real music played by Real musicians to Real people drinking Real beer in a Real pub! And now, here's your host for The New Cross Roads Blues Show, he’s mean and dirty, he’s down and out in London, he’s the baddest pirate that ever sailed up Old Father Thames without a paddle.........
Here’s “Johnny Deptford”

"Ok, ship mates, heard the one about the miserable drummer tried to kill himself, threw himself behind a train..... Yeah? Think you can do better? Bring it on you scurvy faced prawns - send your stuff in - do your worst - speaking of worst - here's a band to get you reaching for the rum, block your ears and noses and all your other orifices and put your legs together for "Deep Blue Sea"

A LIVE MUSIC TV SHOW? WHAT'S DIFFERENT?

This is a fully interactive TV show - audiences around the world can participate in loads of ways:

• Viewers around the world vote on their favourite songs to be broadcast as part of the next show.

• Viewers record their own introductions and send them in to be included in the second show - frivolous, funny, ridiculous rude and irreverent (and that's just Johnny) - they can include whatever they want - jokes, spoofs whatever - the wackier the better. They make up the introductions to the second shows - and give people round the world chance to be on a TV show in London!

• Every week, one band records a "jam track" - viewers can download the track and play along with it - they can send their parts in - and this builds up to a library of songs featuring contributions from round the world - Live At The Amersham Arms - featuring people from anywhere in the world!

• Every series will result in an album "Now That's What I Call The New Cross Gait, Vol**" - featuring some of the bands and some of the jams.

• There will be live chat rooms.

• There will be band freebies for the best introductions.

• Bringing together art and music. The show will include art exhibitions, during and after the music.

• Bringing together artists and fans with no middlemen. The chance for new and unsigned bands to be heard around the world.

• These bands write their own songs, play their own instruments, bringing a little joy, sadness, dancing, laughing and maybe even a tear or two into people's lives.

WHY NEW CROSS?

• The area has been compared (in the New York Times) to Greenwich Village in the 60s – an area of artistic vibrancy, creativity and life.

• It is probably the only area of London that still captures the “street” feel of pub rock & punk rock days and other times of trend setting – there is music, theatre, arts and creative people – but also – a bit of wildness that adds an edge.

The New Cross Roads Blues Shows are being recorded on Wednesday nights in The Amersham Arms on 11 Oct. 18 Oct. 25 Oct. 1 Nov, 8 Nov & 15 Nov - doors open at 7.30 and close at 12.00.
From these 6 shows, there will be 24 TV shows created. The initial run of shows will air on Social Media TV stations including: Facebook TV, YouTube TV, LivAmp and many others.
Members of the public are invited - entrance is £5.00 - a small price to pay for immortality!!
