The Mohawk Radio band extended their support to a fundraising effort by holding the launch party for their brand new EP “#1” in aid of the NK Theatre Arts ‘Big Sound Appeal.’
The band was re-established across the Atlantic in 2011 when lead singer Mia Chambray moved to the UK from Bermuda, bringing the name Mohawk Radio with her.
After responding to an online advert, she joined forces with Sean Frankland [Bass, Backing vocals] and James Gregory [lead guitar]. They were later introduced to Dave Quinn [Drums] and the line-up was complete.
No strangers to delivering live performances, the band has performed at various events across the North West of the UK, including supporting Australian band The Sun Pilots on the Manchester leg of the their recent UK tour.

Having experienced the facilities available at The Forum Theatre for herself, lead singer Mia Chambray said she was amazed that such a great venue lay right on the band’s doorstep.
When they heard about the theatre’s fundraising efforts to replace the current sound equipment, the band jumped at the chance to support them by donating the ticket proceeds from the event to their ‘Big Sound Appeal.’
Ms Chambray explains, “Arriving in Manchester on June 16th, 2011 after deciding to uproot my life and follow my dream, I haven’t looked back since. In late July 2011 I responded to the boys posting on a Manchester Musicians website.
“We met at the Koffee Pot in downtown Manchester and hit it off right away. After our first rehearsal, l knew I’d found my musical soul mates. I’d travelled across an ocean and come so far, I knew these guys were who I was looking for. I cannot wait to see what the future hold for us.”
