Despite fads and trends surrounding them, they endeavour to make music that positively reflects themselves and their beliefs.

“Nothing could prepare us for the energy blast that eminated from the stage the moment they kicked into the first song.”
Taco, Cert 18

“I’ve seen these guys a few times and I know what to expect, and yet they keep on surprising me. Whether it be with the direction of a new song or the reaction from the crowd, it’s the fact that this is so clearly where they belong that tells me; they are not to be ignored.”

“This energy ran through the audience fast and left everyone twitching like they’d been rather unceremoniously touched in a friendly way by the duracell bunny.”

"The Bunker is a superb place to have in Sunderland, it is a breeding ground for talent and without it I doubt I would have ever become a professional musician. I have been going there for 15 years and it's better than ever. It's soulful, ethical and affordable and the city would be screwed without it. I love it."

"Sunderland owes a great deal to the Bunker. Not just because of the bands it has helped to nurture. Well known bands reveal only a fraction of the important work that the bunker does. The work the bunker does is truly invaluable and our City cannot do without it!
