The Catchpenny Broadcast are a four piece blues inspired rock band based in London. They gig in London and the South of the UK, constantly gaining fans in preparation for their eagerly anticipated first album.
Nuno Lopez started playing music back in 2010 when he got his first band together.
The band was named as “The Revolt”, a four piece band which was focused on Rock/Punk/Alternative and just after a couple of months together as a band they started gigging across some of the best music venues in London such as The Water Rats, The Bowery etc. “The Revolt” lasted for just over a year, after that everyone in the band took their own route.
Nuno subsequently started an acoustic project with one of his best mates, Jamie Hinton. As an acoustic duo they started by creating a list of songs to cover and immediately recorded some of the favourites. They have played at some of the most amazing venues in London such as 229, and Scala where they had the honor to be supporting bands like The Wombats and the Mystery Jets!
Nuno then formed a new four-piece band, comprising Nuno Lopez (Vocals/Guitar) , James Rayment (Lead Guitar/Backing vocals), Dave Morris (Drummer) and Dave Coleman (Bass).
As a band they call their music genre “a bit of everything”, as well as performing covers they want to mix a variety of genres together to try and create something original, and keep everyone happy.
They have recently performed at O2 Academy Islington!
