Popular band causes stage invasion

A STALYBRIDGE band has certainly made an impression on one of Manchester’s most famous venues after the crowd ended up invading the stage.

Five-piece The Modern Business – including Jackson Buckley, whose parents own Corporation Street shop Florence and Amelias, and Jack Sykes – headlined the Factory 251 venue, former home of the legendary Factory Records label.

And their 45-minute set obviously went down well with gig goers because many of them ended up on stage with them.

One reviewer, who blogs under the name polkadotsandposiess (CORR) said: “It’s not just me that thinks these boys could be the next big thing.

“Which is evident from the stage invasion that occurred last night and the amount of online support they receive from other bands and members of the public.

“If you haven’t managed to get down to one of their gigs and love new indie rock music, you certainly don’t want to miss the next one as they continue to improve and wow audiences.”

The band, who performed in Armentieres Square last year, has released its debut single, Last Place.

And if their gig invasion is anything to go by, you will be hearing a lot more of The Modern Business in the future.
