We are SYD BOZKO an Indie-Rock band from Manchester. We started in August 2007 and decided to record demos in November 2007 before deciding to hit the gigging circuit. We have no particular influence as such, we just like making good music. We have been quite successful in recent months, from being played on national radio to packing out top Manchester venues. We entered the YGG Irish Festival in March 2008, this was only our 3rd live gig, and we went on to win the competition, beating well established unsigned Manchester bands. Since then we have recorded our 2nd demo, in April 2008, at The Cutting Room Studios (the prize for winning the YGG Festival). This was then promoted and launched at M19 bar in Levenshulme in June 2008 courtesy of Tony Hennigan. In between this we have continued to gig in and around Manchester & the Northwest including, The Academy Manchester, Dry Bar, The Ruby Lounge, The Cavern, Liverpool & The Loft, Preston. In October 2008 we are bringing out our 3rd demo at 'In The City' and in November we are headline support for the Inspiral Carpets, Tom Hingley at M19 bar Levenshulme.
