Hackney Colliery Band plus DJ

29 November / 20:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

We’re thrilled to welcome back Hackney Colliery Band after a storming sold out show in January. This is music that appeals to the feet as much as to the ears.

The Hackney Colliery Band is east London’s unique take on the brass band. Featuring trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and marching percussion, the band are totally acoustic and yet able to blow the roof off any room.

Hackney Colliery Band’s members have hugely diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from work with cutting edge jazz groups to the Royal Opera House, and from Jarvis Cocker to major international orchestras. This breadth of musical talent is clearly on display in their eclectic repertoire.

Mining nuggets of funk, hip-hop and high-octane rock from the musical coalface and throwing in a few chunks of Balkan brass, ska and contemporary jazz for good measure, the Hackney Colliery Band’s set list is as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. Add the fact that the band stays true to its roots by bringing the tradition of mobile marching bands firmly into the 21st Century and you know that every gig’s sure to be unique.

This is high-energy, good-time music that’ll make you want move your feet.

Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six special guests

06 September / 20:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Labelled With Love & Debt Records present Louis Barabbas And The Bedlam Six.

In Association With The Association Of Independent Music (Aim) And Club Fandango.

Swing-fixated narrative folk squeezed through a filter of rock & roll. That’s how the Bedlam Six <> describe their sound. BBC 6 Music was a little more concise, however - simply calling it "Excellent in EVERY way!"

This is a band that scarcely pauses for breath; constantly touring and recording, they have performed all over the world - from UK, Ireland, the USA and Mexico, to sell-out shows across mainland Europe and the coastal towns of Australia, their tumultuous concoction of high energy and musical ingenuity has delighted crowds and critics alike. Over the years they have collaborated with the likes of Kirsty Almeida, Liz Green, Hope & Social and John Otway; shared stages with such disparate acts as Motorhead, I Am Koot, Sun Ra's Arkestra and The Buzzcocks; won praise from fellow musicians Supergrass, The Blockheads and UB40, as well as comedians Mark Steel, Sue Perkins and Julian Barratt.

Their new album "Youth" is out now on Debt Records.

"An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October"

Promising to be raw, emotional and interactive, Justin Furstenfeld, vocalist/songwriter/guitarist for the Platinum-selling rock band Blue October, will perform "An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October" for a run of shows in the US, UK and Germany in September and October 2014.  These shows, all presented in intimate settings, will consist of spoken word, a Q&A session, and an acoustic set of songs never before heard, as well as stripped down and softer versions of Blue October fan-favorites.

"I always look forward to the spoken word/solo shows," said Furstenfeld.  "The fact that I'm sitting just a few feet away from the audience, that there are no rules as to what they ask me, or that I don't have boundaries on my answers, is what is exciting to me.  I'm hoping that the evening will give everyone a chance to dig deep, connect, and explore the dark corners of why honesty, no matter how brutal, remains one of the most beautiful aspects of being human.  Through poetry, music, and conversation, we heal.  Why not do it together."

"An Open Book: An Evening With Justin Furstenfeld" Tour supports the release of "Crazy Making," the expanded third edition of Furstenfeld's book of lyrics, hand-written notes and personal photographs.  The book, featuring more than 80 new pages, includes all lyrics from Blue October's albums and EPs, from 1998's The Answers through to 2014's Sway.  The new edition also includes some very personal insights into Furstenfeld's creative thought process through the past few albums, not published in previous editions.  "Crazy Making" will be available at all of the "Open Book" shows, as well as and other online retail outlets.
