We recently hosted Fresh Catch 4, the first of our new music nights for 2024, which featured emerging music talent on the Docks Academy stage for a showcase of what is coming out of Grimsby at the minute

Taking place on Friday 2nd February, we welcomed two bands and a DJ for Fresh Catch 4: Intercity, Riverwolf, and M-Fatic. All three acts on the bill have been making waves not only locally, but wider across the country, performing sold out headline shows, as well as receiving radio play nationally from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Planet Rock.

Here’s a look back at Fresh Catch 4 with all images featured by Sam Sharp.

We think it’s essential for emerging artists and bands of this area to have a regular platform at a smaller venue like ours. Grassroots music and the local music community is something we really want to support and cultivate and hopefully Docks Academy can become a vital stepping stone in the progression of new musicians’ careers.

Fresh Catch embodies this, giving people the opportunity to hear artists when they’re starting out and see and hear them from a close vantage point.

We’ve already had a number of local artists such as Hattie Cattell, Revivalry, Matt Lloyd, Indigo Bay, Last Of The Wonder Kids, Orphan Boy, Eden Rae, Daniel Cliffe, The Wingmen, Intercity, DB Jones, Ever, Kings & Bears, The Rills, Life, Healer, and Reardon Love, plus many more.

Hailing from Grimsby, Riverwolf are a relentless force of hard rock energy, with thunderous riffs, ferocious vocals, and a stage presence that ignites the crowd and defines a new era of rock rebirth. The band have played packed shows in the Grimsby area, and are making waves on the regional, and national airwaves, receiving multiple spins from the likes of Planet Rock and BBC Introducing Humberside.

Their set saw them blitz through 11 songs, mostly original music as well as covers of well known tracks that added a rock edge take on the originals. The band played to a packed room and left the audience wanting more at the end of their slot.
