CLARKY - FREE EARLY EVENING GIG

CLARKY.jpg

5:00pm - 06:00pm / EARLY EVENING FREE GIG | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7:30PM | GIG 5-6PM

Clarky (Adam Clarke) is a loop artist based in Manchester who specialises in beatboxing, vocal effects, and live looping. Coming from a beatboxing background, his sound covers a wide range of vocal instrumentation which allows him – together with live looping – to create his own soundscapes, rhythms, noises, and any other sound he can think of. All sounds are generated live during each performance which allows for an entirely unique experience every show, like drawing from a blank canvas.

He has performed with local artists such as ShunyaThe Kora Collective, and put together a band in London, Ophelia. His setup allows him to span many genre types and work with other artists from a variety of musical backgrounds. Expect anything from downtempo R’n’B, to intense jungle, to more!

For this performance we can expect improvised beatboxing through looping and effects covering a range of genres from downtempo ambient music to high energy drum and bass.

HAILBAILS

9:00pm - 12:00am | FREE ENTRY | DOORS 6PM | HAPPY HOUR 6-8PM | GIG STARTS 9PM

Formed in late 2012 in Leeds, UK. Hailbails are inspired by the sounds of wild 50's rockabilly and early rock and roll all the way through to surf rock garage bands and fast swingin' jump blues.

Their first EP H.B.E.P #1 (2014) was released on Gin House Records (X Ray Cat Trio, Benjamin William Pike, Mr CD Wallum) on 7" vinyl followed by The Early Years 7 track CD (2018).

Expect original rockabilly material from previous releases plus the odd interesting jumped up R&B/Rock and Roll cover. They have been known to play a polka. The pace won't let up and it'll all have a swingin' kick.

Michael Rossiter - Guitar and Vocals
David Broad – Double Bass and Vocals
Bruce Renshaw - Drums and Vocals

JAMES BROWN IS ANNIE

JAMESBROWNISANNIE.jpg

9:30pm - 12:30am / £5 OTD | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7PM | GIG STARTS 9.30PM

Purveyors of whipped up, calorie-laden, full-fat funk, James Brown Is Annie are the modern day Scottish extension of Caledonian R'N'B legends Average White Band: smooth, soulful and uber-slick. 

Renowned for tight, dynamic, groove-laden live shows, the sextet regularly sell-out shows across the country; adaptable to playing festivals, seated jazz clubs and sweaty nightclubs alike. As one of the UK's most accessible soul-funk-jazz artists, James Brown Is Annie met in a piano bar, rehearse next to a sex shop, and take their name from an Eddie Murphy Saturday Night Live sketch. Supported by National Arts body, Creative Scotland, the group's two albums (JBiA I and JBiA II) were produced by original Average White Band members Molly Duncan (2015) and Hamish Stuart (2018). Regulars on national Scottish television and radio, JBiA's second single, Get Up To Get Down, was a BBC Radio Scotland 'Single Of The Week' in April 2016. The only band to have headlined two different stages at the famous Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party (Waverley Stage 2012, Mound Stage 2017), playing to over 80,000 people, the Scottish outfit have shared stages with some of music's top recording artists (Average White Band, The Family Stone, Kaiser Chiefs, Electric Six, etc.) at some of the country's most prestigious venues, selling out many along the way.

Performing full-fat, calorie-laded, whipped-up funk 'n' soul, people can expect to hear material from the band's two critically-acclaimed albums, as well as material from the likes of Average White Band, Bill Withers, and, of course, James Brown.

"Proof that Scotland has the funk" - The Herald
"Cool. Great new sounds." - BBC Radio Scotland
