Inverness based rock band the Wildflowerz have just been awarded the prestigious honor of representing the Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey Parliament constituency (Danny Alexander MP) at the ROCK THE HOUSE Competition.

Rock The House is an exciting Parliamentary project, created by Mike Weatherley MP, in partnership with leading music industry practitioners. The competition will raise awareness of the need for copyright protection measures and inform MPs and the general public as to the importance of copyright protection within the creative industries, while encouraging young people and new musicians to pursue a career in music and promote live music venues.

The Wildflowerz will now be put to a panel of leading individuals in the music industry where five bands will be picked to play in an open air concert on the lawns of the Houses of Parliament on the 30th June.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
