Contrary to what the Chinese zodiac would have you believe, 8th February 2016 did not hail the start of the year of the fire monkey. This is the year of the snake.
Mansion of Snakes is an 11piece afrobeat behemoth from Leeds featuring members of Jack Flash, Kalyan, Me And My Friends and The Indecision. Mansion of Snakes have performed at The Edinburgh Fringe and Smugglers Festival, collaborated with South African choirs, played late night sets in woodland cocktail bars and above Thai restaurants, as well as hometown shows at The Brudenell Social Club, Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen, Kalyan Presents and Bold as Brass.
Now the band is working in the studio to hone boneshaking grooves, acerbic free jazz and cosmic funk ready for new audiences in 2016. The year of the snake. The earth shall shake and the serpents will dance, for Mansion of Snakes is here!
Bristol based acoustic, hip hop trio Binbag Wisdom is comprised of MC Binbags, Producer/Real life beat machine/cajon flicker Dur Brains and bassist Fuzzy Jeff. Taking you on a fly by journey into these human souls using only organised sound. Flitting between darkness and light, a constant contradiction: heartfelt and flippant, serious and stupid, Binbag Wisdom will delight your ear canals.
Based in London, Sacha Dieu has been DJing professionally since the late 90s. Sacha plays many genres and styles (From 1920s Jazz to Rhythm and Blues to the latest remixes, obscurities from around the world to well known classics). Sacha adapts his sets for each new occasion. However, he is reputed for being one of the pioneers and specialists of Balkan Gypsy Music and Global Beats DJing in the UK!
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm
