Perhaps Contraption + Panenka + DJ Jon Bongly
February 20, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - February 21, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Perhaps Contraption are a progressive art rock 9-piece brass band from London. Part chamber orchestra, part experimental marching band fusing punk, minimalism and big chordal vocals.
Anywhere and everywhere they have bellowed their massive choral harmonies, our jubilant, soaring horns. They’ve led spontaneous processions upon boats, beaches, fields and subterranean venues; all for the thrill of the dance and letting their beloved instruments sing.
Their music touches upon the joyous and irreverent, the dark and piquant, the oom-pah and the sublime. With a relentlessly pulsing, mutant-pram-kit at the core, a surreal and subversive knees-up will undoubtedly ensue…
Panenka are a London-based band who came together out of a desire to play, write and perform music. Straddling genres such as Klezmer, Gypsy-jazz, Latin and Balkan, their sound is inspired by traditional European music – upbeat and bursting with passion!
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.
