Ramsbottom music venue supports local talent with post-lockdown gig

"We couldnt be prouder to be welcoming Marc back"
Amanda Hogg

Indie artist, Marc Todd, is returning to the DogHouse Music Bar in Ramsbottom, having filmed his latest music video - ‘I’m a Changed Man’ – there recently, on Friday 27th August.

As well as getting ready for the gig, Marc has also been working hard on future material. He’s collaborated with other local talents including Ben Hutchinson from Manchester-based Submarine Films and actress Nicole Evans, who lives in Manchester, to record his video for ‘Feel Like a Hurricane’, which was released on 25th June. Local residents will spot plenty of recognisable places, as it was shot in and around Manchester, Ramsbottom and Helmshore.

Amanda Hogg, owner of the DogHouse Music Bar, said: “We couldn’t be prouder to be welcoming Marc back and to have him perform at our bar on 27th August. We cannot wait to hear his amazing voice and see him entertain the punters.

“It’s been so exciting to have Marc preparing for his gig at our place as well as shooting his latest music video here.

“It’s been one of the hardest years we’ve encountered – as it has been for many people in this industry – and we’re looking forward to throwing open the doors once more. 

“Live music is what we’re known for around here, and we’ve had many people travel from further afield to experience the DogHouse. We wanted to make sure our gigs give local talent just like Marc the chance to perform to a live audience, and even better, show off his first album.”

Marc added: “It feels like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel now. Since March last year, a lot of performers have been left without a stage while so many hospitality venues have been desperate to host. We’ve pulled each other through what seemed like it was never ending, and I’m so proud to be one of the first artists to perform at the DogHouse post-lockdown.

“It’s been great recording the music videos in my local area and I made sure everyone involved had a connection to here. Seeing my music come together for a debut album is something I’m really proud of and I can’t wait to share it with people on a stage, over a drink, just like it should be!”

Marc’s gig is on Friday 27th August at The DogHouse Music Bar in Ramsbottom. For more information, contact Amanda Hogg on doghousemusicbar@gmail.com or like the Facebook page.
