Early Night Club

 

The Early Night Club is a Cambridge club night with a difference – it’s clubbing for those of us who need our sleep. Our DJ’s start playing at around 8pm (doors open at 7.30pm) and finish at 11.30pm (or sometimes midnight if we’re feeling really crazy).

 

We play great music that you will have heard of, serve fantastic cocktails and tapas and everyone is friendly and up for it – and let’s just say we’re all old enough to remember leg warmers the first time round. It’s about as much fun as you can squeeze into four hours and is always a night to remember.

THE JAM CLUB

The guys will be laying down some of the filthiest and funkiest grooves around town.  With a mixture of great instrumentals and rare and not so rare covers.  Expect music from Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, The Meters, James Brown, Funkadelic, Marvin Gaye and Steely Dan, to name just a few of their influences.  Let’s get the weekend started.

Friday 30th

SWAGGER

 

Matt Start and Owen Chambers front the band with an impressive display of musical versatility. Both excellent singers, they compliment each other’s voices with vocal harmonies, percussion and by trading places on the piano. Owen also brings a few additional layers to the performance – modern synth sounds, acoustic guitar and the occasional trumpet solo. Matt and Owen’s energy and vocal flexibility allows Swagger to offer a much broader repertoire than most ensembles whilst still doing justice to the originals. Joe Taylor (Drums and Backing Vocals) and Tiago Coimbra (Bass) provide a solid funk groove and ensure that the blues-rocking of Vess Popov (Guitar) comes back down to earth eventually.

 

Entry £5
Performance 10pm
Happy Hour 9pm – 10pm
