The show goes on for BNC. Gigs have been played all along even though the web page news aged to history. When Markus Hämäläinen moved to his new Gusto band in the spring 2022, a new lead vocalist was found very near: his brother Elias Hämäläinen keeps up the amazing song power of BNC, with some solo numbers also from Antti Saksa on the bass guitar. Below some gig greetings from the band in early June 2023 (in Finnish). They tell about their gig in Rymy-Eetu and the awaited midsummer cruise gigs on Viking Grace.
BNC just returned from a three day gig cruise on Viking Grace. Elias Hämäläinen was the guest vocalist for the second time – in June BNC accompanied Idols-winner Martti Saarinen on the same stage. BNC feat. Elias can be heard on Grace again on November 13-14th 2014(cruise info and bookings www.vikingline.fi).
Next, BNC will perform on the Raffaello terrace in Helsinki on Aug 2nd, and at Kymijoki Beer Festival featuring small breweries in Kouvola on Aug 8-9th. On Aug 16th the band will return to Rymy-Eetu after the summer break, with five gigs there already in August-September. Other venues include Shamrock in Vantaa, Grönan in Hanko, and Molly Malones in Helsinki, where BNC will play a whole week before Christmas. With some additional duo gigs and a New Year’s cruise to Tallinn, the band is looking forward to a very busy fall. See you at gigs!
A few live clips from BNC’s Rymy-Eetu-gigs have been published on the Setlist-page. The next opportunities to hear the band live are August 10th and 23rd, again at Rymy-Eetu. During August 30-31st the band plays on Viking XPRS cruising between Helsinki and Tallinn. For those who like mellower acoustic sounds, the BNC duo will play in Porvoo on August 16th, and on M/S Maria docked at Hakaniemi on September 5th. See gigs.
Brand New Classics @ Circus Helsinki 2.2.2013
Brand New Classics played on the biggest stage of their career at the Circus
in Kamppi, at the after party of the motor cycle fair 2.2.2013. Especially the big wonderful sound system made the gig an awsome experience, but the band is ready to return to more intimate stages, making people dance, for example, on the tables of Rymy-Eetu
