Made in Mann presents Voodoo Bandits live in the Prom Suite
VillaGaiety are excited to welcome Voodoo Bandits to the Villa Marina’s Prom Suite on Friday 25th September, the first band to perform as part of our recently announced Made in Mann series!
Made in Mann gives local Manx bands the platform to showcase their talents by playing in the Island’s largest entertainment venue and illustrates the enormous amount of Manx music talent.
Voodoo Bandits create sunny/surfy indie rock sounds, packed with dreamy elements; ultimately sounding vibrant, energetic and full of life.
The band is comprised of Ben Donaldson (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Charlotte Wilby (Bass), and twins Corey Vaughan (Lead Guitar) and Nathan Vaughan (Drums). They originally kick started Voodoo Bandits off with just Ben and the twins after meeting in their mid-teens at a post exams party (of course no under-age drinking involved!). After a few years of jamming in Ben’s parents garage and around the local pubs, Charlotte joined and jumped on bass, completely new to music and pretty much learning on the job.
In the Spring of 2019, Voodoo Bandits self-released their debut single accompanied with a music video which spread fast over the Isle of Man gaining popularity amongst locals, and gaining the band international reach. This paved the way for their following releases. Most recently the band released their first track of 2020, called ‘Empty Swimming Pool’. Proclaimed by reviewers as their best work to date, the track has proven to be a fan favourite and has focused the band’s sound going forward.
