OOTB  :(

Be the first to comment

I am looking for bass/drums/guitar/keyboards, perhaps additional wind/string instruments. Both young bucks and old hands welcome. Backing vocals a bonus. This is a ‘for fun’ project to develop new and existing material to play live and to demo for publishers. Please email sound files or links to your playing samples. Here’s what I do:



OOTB 616 – 18th July – Nathan Fynn

Posted 17/07/2015 By admin

nathan fynnHello. OOTB have booked a bright shining feature act this Saturday to enlighten our low-pressure cloud-ridden grey Scottish summer. Australian-born Nathan Fynn, now residing in Edinburgh, has been performing live for over twenty years now and has played extensively on Australia’s Gold Coast (and with us last year as feature act). His style is acoustic folk/blues and has a clear distinctive voice that can grab the attention of any audience.

Nathan released an album last summer entitled “Highway Down” and is available to listen on this link:

Gilt our east coast with your original performances. Sign up from 7:30pm and the golden gong will chime at 8pm for an evening of unmissable acts.

Will be considered as gross misconduct not to see you there…



OOTB 615 – 11th July – Dave Keir

Dave KeirHello. OOTB have booked a popular and talented musician for our featured act this Saturday. Dave Keir has been songwriting, gigging and recording since his youth. With such experience out there in the world of music, and with some European tours under his belt you can be rest-assured of a top quality performance. Dave’s music has a distinctive folk influence played with a strong finger-picking style on acoustic guitar which he is well recognised for. His vocals carry enchanting melodies with thoughtful deep lyrics which can’t help but draw you into Dave’s cleverly crafted songs.

Check out the official website for more insight to Dave’s musical history and his songs:

Fancy a bit of stage-time this Saturday? Open slots are there for grabbing so you can show us what you got. Sign up time is from 7:30pm, and OOTB will kick off at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be like looking into a glory-hole to see you there.



OOTB 614 – 4th July – Open Slots

Posted 03/07/2015 By admin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHello. Open slots is all we gots this Saturday as there is no featured act booked in for your hardened platinum listening ear-shaped devices. So yeah, more slots than usual are there for the taking.

Fifteen minutes of stage time awaits those with satisfactory awkward performance gaits eager to reveal creation-based workings, all cogs agog. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will make space-time stand still at 8pm. Original material only ya bass.

Will be rather independent in an American way to see you there…



OlderNotWiserHello. Now that the summer solstice is over and the length of each day from now will gradually shorten into the long dark abyss of this coming winter, OOTB have another feature act to brighten your shadowed Saturday evening. Older Not Wiser is fronted by David Roberts who is a prolific songwriter, busker and live performer in Edinburgh. His songs cover a wide field of subjects and experiences with varying styles of music coming through along with his band-members providing extra instrumentation, percussion and vocals. Well worth a listen if you’re dropping into the Kilderkin bar.

Here’s a link to Older Not Wiser’s music:

Open slots for any performing sun-spots are waiting to be brightened by your burning creations. Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll bloody well get going, quite thoroughly, at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be the will of wills to see you there…

Lynzie DrayHello. Another week of toil, folly and regret has passed to make way for an amazing headline act this Saturday evening to replenish our minds with positive creative inspiration. Lynzie Dray, otherwise known as Little Songbird, has her own unique style of song-smithing. Influences of acoustic pop, rock and folk come into play sung with Lynzie’s confident vocals taking her audiences on a journey of her own life experiences. She’s a prolific performer in and around Edinburgh, so expect a great session from this very talented little songbird. Here’s a link to some of Lynzie’s music:

Open slots are available for fifteen minutes of stage time. Sign up from 7:30pm and OOTB will start the performance wings a fluttering at 8pm. Original material only.

OOTB 611 – 13th June

Posted 12/06/2015 By admin

Hello. Whether whatever during this rare summer weather if OOTB have a feature act or not for this Saturday, open slots are up for grabs as per usual. If there ain’t no feature act then a handful more of those slots will be available to you which will make things a little more breathable through the Meadow’s stinking barbecue burnt meaty air.

Sign up from 7:30pm and we’ll apply apples to the performance application at 8pm. Original material only and that sort of thing ting-a-ling.

Will be like wearing cheap creaky science-fiction costumes to see you there…



OOTB 610 – 6th June – Ross Neilson

Posted 03/06/2015 By admin

Ross NeilsonHello, good morning, good evening and welcome. Another headline act is set to grace our awaiting stage this Saturday. Ross Neilson has been writing, recording and performing his songs over the last ten or so years now. With influences ranging from Neil Young, Pavement, Tom Petty and Elliott Smith – Ross always manages to put his own stamp on his music. His latest studio album entitled ‘Dark Side Of Morning’ was officially released last year and shows Ross as an emerging talent in Scotland. Do your good self and your good friends a good favour and come on down to the Kilderkin bar for a great evening of home-grown music. Here’s a link to some of R. Neilson’s music:

Open slotties for all you musical hotties are available for picking up a fifteen-minute date. Sign up time is from 7:30pm and shortly after the tuneful fanfare of live music rides the creaky bed-springs at 8pm. Original material only.

Will be like sneezing into an aloe-vera dipped handkerchief to see you there…

Posted 28/05/2015 By admin

Ian SclaterGood hello-ings to you all. Another week and another Saturday evening looms for another talented headline act. Oh yes, you better believe it. Ian Sclater is a regular and popular performer in Edinburgh singing self-penned songs of his own life’s experiences, and has a long seasoned involvement with gigging on this planet. Ian’s music is a healthy mixture of varying styles including pop, rock and folk. He is also headlining this Sunday at The Listening Room in Edinburgh if you can’t catch him at OOTB this Saturday. So no excuses really to witness a worthy songwriter this weekend.
