The day of the last Summer Showcase of 2014, we look at photos of some of the previous summer time shenannigans.

Red Kites in 2011, played the showcase for the first time as a band, the crowd response was awesome . Moteh later reflected that; "The Ironworks gig we played in the summer was by far our most enjoyable yet."

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
