 morePossibly the best R.E.M Tribute around, supported by local boy, Dunkie.

Stipe recreate the alt-rock awesomeness of R.E.M. As regular visitors to the festival scene, leading venues and with gigs into Europe, Stipe earned the praise of “Awesome” from R.E.M.’s own lead singer Michael Stipe.

This is the definitive tribute to one of the biggest bands in rock music. They have performed the songs of R.E.M. to thousands of people worldwide. R.E.M. built a towering back catalogue that reached from the addictive highs of Shiny Happy People down to the reflective darkness of Everybody Hurts, covering all else in between.


‘That was the best live performance, ever,’ says Richard. ‘The music of R.E.M. left such an impression on myself that it will always be a part of my life.’

Richard went on to form Stipe in 1996 whilst fronting a second R.E.M. tribute ‘Monster’ during the same period.
Platinum Al had this high praise for the band in January 2015:

“Where this band succeeds is in the accuracy of the sound ... the lead singer looks the part, his voice is a fairly uncanny likeness of Michael Stipe’s

*****Lead Coloured River*****
Lead Coloured River are an Indie Rock quartet hailing from the valleys of South Wales, aged 19-21. Forming in February of 2017, they have been hard at work establishing a name for themselves on the Welsh music scene.

The band has a distinctive, yet purposeful sound made up of four separate layers culminated from a range of influences such as Royal Blood, Green Day, The Smiths and Arctic Monkeys; resulting in a mix of gritty, distorted bass and lead guitar tones, hard-hitting drums and powerful, melodic vocals.

Described as “creative songwriters and electric on stage”, Lead Coloured River are one to watch.

*****The Witching Hour*****
The Witching Hour are a 4 piece Rock band based in Merthyr Tydfil. Love to play music together and have a great pas

The City Venue in a Valley's Town

As a city style venue in the heart of a South Wales town, we offer you something that’s both special and memorable. We’ve always had a huge and lucrative audience for live music. (Wales isn’t called ‘the land of song’ for nothing.) However, touring musicians have been caught in a kind of limbo. There have been few places that can bridge the gap between a large theatre and the back of a pub. Jac’s aims to fill that gap: it’s a mid-sized custom music venue with affordable prices and a great atmosphere. It’s a fully accessible building in the centre of Aberdare, within easy reach of the M4 and M5, and a few minutes’ walk from the town’s rail and bus stations. It’s based in the former home of a doctor, which served for many years as the United Services Club (known locally as ‘the Shot and Shell’). Since then, it’s been transformed into a venue suitable for audiences of up to 300, with an integrated bar, plenty of seating and a large dance floor. You can chill out in the bar, and there’s ample car parking a short walk away. Our function room can cater for private parties, and we’ll be offering meals and Sunday lunches. We’ve established a reputation for an eclectic mix of live music every Friday and Saturday, our occasional ‘theme’ nights and weekends, and our Pleasant Valley Sundays showcasing the best in acoustic music. We’re proud to host the Blowout indie/alternative nights in Aberdare, and we hope to build a reputation as the ‘go to’ place for musicians and fans alike. Our 8.5 kW PA and 24-channel mixing desk allow us to tailor your sound, while our state-of-the-art lighting rig will show you off at your best. Our Blackstar cabs and drumkit are available as standard – of course, if you’d rather use your own gear, that’s fine. Our extensive network means that we can arrange suitable support acts and provide a DJ to fill in between sets. Our team covers all bases, from hospitality and catering, promotion and networking, social media and online marketing, and (of course) technical support. Jac’s is the one-stop shop for touring musicians in Wales. Further down the line we’ll be able to offer accommodation and something to soak up the previous night’s beer. The days of living out of the van are long gone (fortunately). We hope you’ll take advantage of the free time to explore our historic town and enjoy the spectacular scenery at the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
