“Fresh Funky Fantastic Futuristic Music from the NOW Generation!”

9pm – 3am // Tickets £6 adv, £8 otd

/// NOSTALGIC ORANGE
Expect a twist to the norm and unique journey through the worlds of progressive rock, metal, jazz fusion and way beyond. Featuring Ben Vize on keys and compositions, Huw Roberts on guitar, Adam Chinery on guitar, Ben Crane on bass, and Zoe Pascal on drums.

/// SPACE GHETTO
Formed in 2017 when long-time friends and collaborators Mehdi Langroodi, Josh Barber and Tom Maine needed an outlet for their shared love of funk music and legends such as The JBs, Parliament Funkadelic and J Dilla.
Alongside Mehdi on drums, Josh on bass and Tom on guitar, Space Ghetto is comprised of some of London’s most talked-about horn players, trombonist Kieran McLeod, saxophonist Caspar Sutton-Jones and trumpet virtuoso Yelfris Valdes.
The self-produced Yeet EP, released in January 2018, blends funk, jazz, hip hop and psychedelic rock with hard backbeats and mighty horn melodies.
From the relentless, head-nodding title track to the trombone-led ‘Better Off Dead’, a cover and tribute to the great Bill Withers, whose music the band have continued to explore with a show and live recording from London’s Jazz Cafe, featuring some of the city’s most exciting singers. The debut record also features Cuban percussionist Javier Camilo, LSO violinist Julian Rodriguez and David Landers on keyboards.

/// KOMA
KOMA is a London based jazz collective comprised of 6 seriously blisteringly ultra-talented young musicians with their own individual voices, coming together to create a unique sound in jazz. Each musician in this quintet is destined for certain stardom and notoriety. Now studying at some of the top conservatoires in the country, KOMA are continuing to push the boundaries of their sound, blending musical styles and influences from all backgrounds. The name KOMA is derived from the Japanese word Komorebi which refers to the interplay between sunlight and the leaves of trees. This somewhat poetic imagery symbolises the beauty in something so often taken for granted for its simplicity. This is something KOMA strive to convey through their music every time they play. Prepare to be amazed!!! Prepare to be energised!!! Prepare to me enriched by this young sextet!!! This is KOMA!!

/// DJs MR & MRS WEDDERBURN
