This is a site devoted to the history of Sheffield Rock & Pop music. We all know about the famous bands that come from the Steel City, but we want to devote some space to the bands that nearly made it as well.
Contributions of any kind welcomed – photos, reviews, memories, tickets, flyers, all welcomed. We know most readers will have some memorabilia tucked away in a dusty drawer 😉

Black Mariah were a well known band on the local rock scene. Played mainly local venues and a short stint on the University circuit. They recorded 6 tracks in a Sheffield studio and they sold these on ‘cassette’ at gigs along with t-shirts.
