Friday 2nd

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.

 

Tapas served until 9pm
2 Cocktails for £10 5pm-7pm & 9pm-10pm
