Mar­wills jet in

Ayrshire Post - - The Weekend Ticket -

A top Cana­dian rock band - tipped for fu­ture su­per­star­dom - are head­ing for Ayr.

Toronto based out­fit The Mar­wills play The Twa Dugs next Wed­nes­day as part of a UK wide tour.

The five- piece out­fit have been de­scribed as “a thick, juicy cut of rock- stuffed with blues – and cov­ered in Grade A Cana­dian dirt”.

Al­ready a head­line act in North Amer­ica, their UK tour is de­signed as a launch pad to rais­ing their pro­file this side of “the pond”.

Their record com­pany and man­age­ment are al­ready pre­dict­ing a big fu­ture for the band’s orig­i­nal “gusty blues” sound.

Twa Dugs owner Bob Shields reck­ons the book­ing is a huge com­pli­ment to the pub’s grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion for live mu­sic.

He said: “We un­der­stand the band were look­ing for small, in­ti­mate venues for their break­through tour. Their pro­moter made a few calls and kept hear­ing the name “Twa Dugs”

“They tracked us down via Face­book and we were de­lighted to ac­cept. It’s usu­ally the venue who search for bands – this time it’s the other way round! We felt obliged to point out the pub’s pol­icy of NEVER charg­ing for live mu­sic – we’ve never taken a penny at the door in 11 years and weren’t about to change. I think the band loved the con­cept – and made them more de­ter­mined to head to Ayr! It’s also our first ever “live” Wed­nes­day night, so we’ve asked them to play 8pm to 11pm .

Bob is hop­ing it will be a great chance to see and hear a band that’s on the brink of big­ger things.
