UGLY - FREE EARLY EVENING GIG!

6:00pm - 7:00pm / FREE ENTRY | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7PM | GIG 6PM

We are super excited to welcome Ella Jean and Rob Major back to the club tonight for their UGLY gig.

Rob and Ella met in 2014 the day after she arrived in London, UK from Calgary, Canada. Rob was playing in his hip-hop band Unexpected Guests in a small room in London Bridge and Ella asked if they could play together. Early on in their collaboration, the two came out to each other. He’s Christian and she’s queer which is simultaneously the most and least important thing about them. Their weirdness and wild, quirky energy only comes out (of the closet) when they join forces as the UGLY duo. They found that, while Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul and Funk were their favourite genres to play in, their taste crossed over in Punk, shoe-gaze and art Rock too. Their method of making is using a singer-songwriter approach to danceable music. They have released their first single in 2019 called Hesitate, followed by the EP We Could Never Be Together in late Spring 2019.

“ When we write, we look into ourselves and see what needs to be said. We hope that you can find a bit of you in that as well.”

GEORGE SHOVLIN & GEORGE LAMB

GEORGE SHOVLIN & GEORGE LAMB

9:00pm - 12:00am / FREE ENTRY | DOORS 6PM | HAPPY HOUR 6PM-MIDNIGHT | GIG STARTS 9PM

We are looking forward to welcoming this duo to the club tonight!

George Shovlin & George Lamb have been playing together for nearly thirty years, since they first founded the ‘George Shovlin Blues Band’, which has since become the hugely successful ‘George Shovlin and The Radars’.

Their music is a fusion of blues and rock, with the powerful voice of George Shovlin allied to the sublime guitar playing of George Lamb. Tony Moore, of ‘Blues In Britain’ magazine, recently commented that the duo are ‘supreme entertainers, both legends of the NE Music Scene; George Shovlin is a force of nature, George Lamb is one of the most talented guitarists in Britain’.

They perform at the highest levels in British Blues music…festivals, concerts, clubs…as a duo, and especially with their band. 

Having supported blues greats over the years, such as Canned Heat, Walter Trout and John Mayhall, as well as country blues greats such as Dave ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards, ‘Doctor’ Ross, and Jo Ann Kelly, their quality is unquestioned.
