Don't miss two of Scotland's most up-and-coming bands at The Vault Arts Centre this Saturday 9th November 2019 from 7:00pm. Aberdeen's Connor Clark & The Matador Kings kicks things off in style followed by Kirkcudbright's very own Kasama who will tear the roof off the place! Tickets on sale now.

Kasama, from the Filipino 'to be together' represents teamwork, togetherness and camaraderie.


A new and exciting young indie rock band from Kirkcudbright, Scotland, Kasama are Tyee Wright (Lead Vocals/Songwriter), Andrew McCulloch (Lead Guitar), Adam Kherbouch (Rhythm Guitar), Scott Christie (Bass Guitar) and Tom Pearsall (Drums).

Connor Clark & The Matador Kings
Connor Clark & The Matador Kings started out in late 2017, playing gigs in Aberdeen and Perth.  In summer 2018 the band recorded 3 singles at 45 A-Side Recordings, Glasgow, and played their first show in October 2018 with This Feeling.

They released their first single, Echoes and Patience in November 2018, a burst of high energy and a catchy chorus, it quickly caught on to Aberdeen’s music scene, followed by a second single release, Stand Alone, in early 2019.

The band embarked on their first Scottish tour in May 2019, playing Kilted Kangaroo (Stirling), NICE N SLEAZY (Glasgow), Sneaky Pete’s (Edinburgh) and finishing off on home soil at Cafe Drummonds (Aberdeen).


The band are Connor Clark (Singer/Songwriter, Guitarist), Ray Evans (Bassist), Euan Hall (Drummer) and Dylan Craig Thomson-Evans (Lead Guitarist/Backing Vocals).
