Anteloup

Anteloup are a Nottingham-based, cross-genre original music band. Covering all manner of musical styles, from pop, to rock, to reggae, to synth-led MOTR, they provide a mature, multi-layered approach to providing live music.

 

So, What have the guys been doing?

Following a great reception at the Nottingham Busk Off 2018, the guys have been back in the practice room, working hard on some new material and prepping for their upcoming gig at The Maze, Nottingham, on 26th June.

The EP is back on track, with the album penned for the latter part of 2018. Will there be a Christmas song on it..? Who knows? But the guys have surprised us in the past, so anything could happen.

In the meantime, check out the Live Sampler in the Music Player. Another one is in production, too!

Anteloup Busk Off 2018

Busk Off 2018

Anteloup were really proud to take part in the Nottingham Busk Off Festival 2018 this year. Although Dave and Pat were not available for the event, they were there in spirit (actually, Pat was also there in person..) and the whole band re-worked some of their more popular numbers to work as acoustic-based, providing a set that could be played with the minimum of instrumentation, but still deliver the inimitable Anteloup sound.

Gary provided a rock-steady keys rhythm that kept everything in time, while Pete pulled off some pretty impressive guitar majesty on a borrowed acoustic. 

"All I really had to do was turn up and sing!" Laughed Luis. "We were a little apprehensive at first, as we're definitely a 5-piece and really missed having Pat and Dave with us, but after the first song we got into the flow and just went for it. It was a great day, and a fantastic experience."

Anteloup will be playing The Maze, Nottingham on 26th June 2018, but check out the pictures from the Busk Off on the Photos page.

GIG NEWS!

Luis, Pete and Gary will be taking part in the Busk Off festival in Nottingham on 5th May 2018. Pat and Dave are out of town, but the guys still decided to put a special acoustic-style gig together, with some nice variations on some of the band's more established numbers.

The festival starts at 1pm, with Anteloup taking to the stage at 3.45pm.

GIG NEWS!

Anteloup are again gracing The White Lion in Beeston on Friday 3rd December. No cover charge - just great music, drink and Sergio's fantastic Portuguese tapas!

Oxjam Beeston Takeover - 2017

Anteloup had a corking time at the Oxjam Beeston Takeover this year, bringing their unique style to The Crown Inn, Beeston.


Enjoying an earlier, daytime slot, the outdoor area soon filled up as the band kicked off with old favourite "A Little Bit Like Kiss Me," along with the inspirational "Today," as well as new song "It's A Shame." Some brand new material was also aired; the dreamy "New Morning" and re-worked "Nothing Stays The Same" both being well-received by ever-growing crowd.

The band always enjoy Oxjam and are happy to play at whatever time best suits the organisers. They were especially happy this year, as the early slot meant they could enjoy the rest of the music on offer. As well as a pint or two..!

Set List (Almost) Confirmed

The band are really gearing up for the Oxjam Beeston Takeover on 14th October, and have been re-working and drilling the set-list, but not without a little bit of head-scratching....

"We're a bit torn between 'Jodie' and 'We've All Been There' as a finale," explains Luis. "We really want a diverse set, that shows the range of our material, while also ensuring we hit at least one genre that everyone will like. Both Jodie and We've All Been There are more rocky numbers, with great endings that ensure we finish with a bang. Jodie is really popular and gets a great response, but we've also re-worked We've All Been There, which now has a lot more dynamic to it and a smasher of an ending. We're already committed to the other songs, so can only do one or the other. We're running them both in our practice sessions, but still can't decide which..."

It seems that the only way we'll find out what the decision is is to head along to The Crown, Beeston on the 14th October and watch the gig!

The band have confirmed the following, just to whet our appetites: Today, It's A Shame, New Morning, Nothing Stays The Same, Frozen Turkey...... Watch this space for further set list details.
