Mr Tea & the Minions + Shambolique + Fenomeno Show
April 29, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - April 30, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Originally a dictatorship formed by the cunning Mr Tea, the Minions have since overthrown him and their chaos has brought forth a musical democracy where cheekiness, fun and love bind the band together into one massive colourful explosion!
The Minions play their own unique take on high energy Balkan party music – combining Gypsy flavoured Ska, Dub and Swing with an infusion of soulful melodies, cheeky Eastern riffs and booming beats and bass to put a smile on your face and your knees up past your ears!
Shambolique are a highly energetic and humourous troupe who really need to be seen and heard to be believed. Borne from a desire to make people dance uncontrollably, they recorded their first two demos with drummers – Clive Deamer (Portishead/Roni Size) and Maff Scott (The Egg)
Having already made a very welcome disturbance on the Bristol circuit, Shambolique’s first summer has also seen Small World Festival, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Bestival!
Main ingredients: A super hi energy electro Gypsyfunk quartet with a twist of high chaos. Cooked at 400° for 9 months and served on a bed of harmonic tomfoolery. (Contains nuts)
