Gorgeous George + Secondhand Street Band + DJ Stirzaker

August 27, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - August 28, 2016 @ 2:00 am

£7 – £8

 

From the moment Gorgeous George take to the stage, before the guitar has been struck or the trombone has been blasted you already know this is a band who put their life into what they do. From the off it’s a full-on lyrical assault, a lung-busting gallop, with melodies and rhythms flying from innumerable instruments, held together with a passion and intensity that you thought disappeared years ago.

Meet Charlie, Christopher, Thomas, Theo, Kevin, Deanna and Tom. From their birth 2 years ago, they have gone from playing legendary sets to packed back rooms in the pubs of New Cross, Bethnal Green and Camden to becoming regular fixtures at festivals such as Isle of Wight, Secret Garden Party, Bestival and Boomtown Fair.

Growing up in the capital city and absorbing all the experiences it has to offer has resulted in spiky, acerbic tales from lyricists Charlie and Chris. Heartfelt, with meaning, yet funny and brutal. This is married with a genre defying brew of sounds, that takes you on a madcap circus-like journey all over the world and then back again before the next song starts!

Secondhand Street Band are a group of musicians who love street performance, and who have been fortunate enough to find a home in New Orleans, Louisiana. This August we are lucky enough to host them at the Magic Garden. Come and experience their unique trad jazz/funk sound, which is loaded with brass and New Orleans swagger!
