Floor Spots

Each evening includes a 30 minute ‘warm-up/support’ slot before the main act takes to the stage. This is usually shared between 2 or 3 local performers doing around 10 mins each. There have been many occasions where singers and musicians have played in front of an audience for the very first time, and also nights when professional performers such as Edwina Hayes or Henry Priestman have dropped by and had their arms twisted to provide a song or two . It’s a great way to start off the night and offers a platform for local singers – something the Pea believes is very important.

If you would like a Floor Spot at The Processed Pea contact Stuart Bell tel 01430 810669 or email bellstuey@aol.com. It is often possible to just turn up on the night and see if there is space, or you can make contact in advance to arrange a date to suit.

There are numerous emerging and established artists who have performed support (floor) slots at The Processed Pea. Here are just a few of the musicians that have ‘opened the show’ recently. Click on artist’s name for more info.

ROB NICKLAS

As well as solo appearances singer/songwriter Rob also works in a duo with Rosie Queenan and with the Hull-based Mean-Eyed Cat. He has also headlined at the Processed Pea with his “Friends”.

MIKE LOUGHLIN

Mikes lives in nearby South Dalton, and helps set up (and later re-set) the room, door duties, sorts the raffle, photographs the artists and regularly kicks off the night with a couple of songs despite on-going ribbing from the MC. Mike has an extensive collection of pea pics on his website.

JOE SOLO

A great Scarborough-based performer with a growing fan base.

YSABELLE WOMBWELL

Ysabelle Wombwell is already a popular, varied and established performer whether playing solo or with her band ‘The Reigning Geese’. Her subtle acoustic guitar and picture-painting, storytelling lyrics reflect a humble and insightful nature, which is expressed with a truly angelic voice.

JODY McKENNA

Jody has created a dedicated following around Hull and his profile was raised when he was featured on Channel 4’s ‘Secret Millionaire’ programme in which he was befriended by businessman Martin Stamp. Through his dedication and honesty, a donation of £20,000 was made to the Warren Young Peoples Project which he was involved with. Since then Jody has released a single ‘Walk With Me’ and albums ‘The North Wind’ and ‘The Jody McKenna Band’ on Warren Records.

With or without her band Jess is simply amazing!
