Slim Pickings + Easydread + DJ Jon Bongly
August 5, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - August 6, 2016 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Slim Pickings are 9 strong Reggae/Dub force. 2016 saw them release their debut single ‘Dem Fall’ with a video to boot, which has been highly praised. Many members bring to the table different inspirations and influences, from 70/80’s reggae, modern reggae to hip-hop. Still in the baby years the band have quickly picked up a strong following through venue and festival dates all over the UK. The band are currently recording a debut EP which is set to be released later in 2016!
Drawn together by their distinctly empty pockets and their collective love of reggae music, soon enough, a band was formed. Sometimes something just feels right, this wasn’t one of those times but they did it anyway! Rehearsals were missed and debts were racked up, cables broke and pedals packed up, but despite all adversity Slim Pickings came out stronger than ever, with their own unique style of energetic feel good reggae!
Easydread are a 7 piece rock reggae outfit from Luton Dreadfordshire. They combine sounds drawn from a wide range of influences, from punk to rap, soul to ska. As they seamlessly blend powerful political imagery with sweet harmonies and heavy grooves, Easydread will get you thinking as well as skanking!
One of the early proponents of Electro Swing, retro remix and world beats in the UK, DJ Jon Bongly is a force of positive energy spinning anything with a swing, and other retro remix including ghetto funk, ska, big beat and glitch. He also likes pulsing techno and wriggling tropical beats.
We are open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm. Happy Hour from 5-7pm!
