A one-off extravaganza of music, dancing and good times! Acoustic acts and indie bands, new voices and unique talents... a pinch of soul, a splash of folk, and a whole lot of funk... boogie on down `til the wee hours! All in aid of Oxfam...
“A beautiful acoustic starlet, whose unique style represents a combination of the genres of soul, folk and pop”
Pete Davies, accompanied by Jenny Davies:
“A popular local guitar strumming genius, whose undeniable talent has been applauded from the furthest stretches of Australasia, to the darkest corners of the East End!”
“Jenny Davies's talent and voice has been likened to that of Kirsty MacColl.”
“This instrumental band counts The Redneck Manifesto, Battles and Big Scary Monsters amongst their influences. Fresh, fun and funky, they are guaranteed to put on an awesome show."
Man on a Mouse
“... old school indie rock, reminiscent of the Futureheads, only much MUCH better!”
“The YuYa are groovy people and the music shows it. They are into parties and the music shows it. Their influences are untraceable, but one thing is sure: they are very refreshing. For a duo, with only a guitar, the sound is big and unexpected.”
"Constance's voice is something I thought became sadly extinct in 1969, but I was wrong; to the sound of her voice you will melt."
"It's defiantly quirky, irrepressibly upbeat fare, and if it doesn't make part of you want to get up and dance like an idiot, then frankly you may be dead inside."
"The thought of this band playing an overcrowded pub full of good cheer and cheap booze is a wondrous prospect indeed!"
“DJ Ratling has been a DJ for over ten years. His career includes a lengthy spell on award winning breaks station BREAKS fm in the mid/late 2000s, whilst he is now spinning on Fridays on www.dubplates.co.uk... DJ Ratling has played at venues around the UK, including Herbal, Rhythm Factory, Air, the Custard Factory, and Babalou. He is also a producer of dubstep, breakbeat, acid, and drum and bass music.”
Shameless Disco DJs:
“Shameless Disco DJs will be mixing up disco soundscapes, electronica and some shaking bass grooves... making sure we are throwing shapes `til the sun comes up!”
There will also be fancy dress, face painting, cupcakes, craft stalls, a raffle... and MUCH more!
