Tempt, Last Call Messiahs, Farcry and Shokker to play 2017 ‘M-Pre Party’
The eighth edition of the M-Pre Party will be taking place once again just before the start of the M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland, USA. This year, the date for the M-Pre Party is Thursday, April 27, 2017 while the M3 Rock Festival will be taking place on Friday, April 28, 2017 and Saturday, April 29, 2017.
Four bands have been announced today to take part in the M-Pre Party‘s 2017 edition. They consist of Tempt, Last Call Messiahs, Farcry and Shokker, all of whom have previously been featured on Sleaze Roxx.
Back in January of this year, M-Pre Party founder and organizer Dave Dillman spoke exclusively to Sleaze Roxx and explained what prompted him to organize the event: “I actually thought there was a void that could be filled by the ‘M-Pre Party.’ There are so many hard working younger bands that hold true to the ’80s hard rock/glam/sleaze sound that need to be heard. I wanted to give people who love the same type of music that I do an opportunity to see some of these young bands. I also wanted to give these bands a chance to get their music heard. It’s a win/win for both the bands and the people who attend.”
In terms of the criteria that Dillman sets out to choose each year’s M-Pre Party line-up, he stated: “I pretty much stick to the same criteria each year as far as what I look for to fill the ‘M-Pre Party’ line up. First and foremost, the bands must have original music and deliver live. I also have to like the bands myself. I would love to be able to say that money didn’t have anything to do with it… but I can’t. The line up each year does have to work financially.”
Tickets for the 2017 ‘M-Pre Party‘ can be purchased from DToxin Productions.
