Si Astbury, so your new band is in the pre-production stage, yet you have been asked to perform already?

"Yes we have. I have also been asked to host this upcoming festival, and our new band, Ignition, is to perform at it. We have until early summer for that performance, but there are a lot of things to do in preparing for it!

The event is the Bramley Music Festival."

When not singing and writing songs, Astbury also presents talent on Burton TV News' "In The Spotlight."

In addition, Astbury is part of an online competition called FameStage.com One can go there and vote for him. Remember to check one's email for a vote confirmation.

Si Astbury, so last year kept you busy. How do you see this year?

"2013 was a productive and fulfilling year. 2014 appears to be an even more productive one!

Plans are already under way with Ignition concerning photo shoots, rehearsals, booking gigs and more!"

Due to the band having a young teen sensation guitar player (he was 13 when he joined), plus no photos to share yet, future examiner.com articles will post more information on the young guitarist as well as the other musicians. Fans can also look forward to a slideshow full of Ignition photos!

Si Astbury reminded this Young Musicians Examiner that fans can visit multiple websites to learn more about the band members and get a glimpse of them (in a black and white photo) on Facebook.
