Thursday 4th

Phil Stevenson Trio

With the emphasis on original material, Phil Stevenson Trio are influenced by artists such as Eddie Harris, the Meters and Jimi Hendrix. The aim of this band is to have fun plotting a wide course through the 60’s funk sound, from the looseness of New Orleans to the locked-up grooves of James Brown, drawing on raw blues and with occasional nods to joyful west African guitar styles.

Tapas served until 9pm
Free entry all night

Friday 5th

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
