So the months pass quicker than the wind blows, and the progress of the band is no less speedy! With a quartet show on the 6th, where we’ll be blasting out all the up-beat, funky Gyp-Hop madness, alongside Situation Cure and Kafkadiva, and a solo show at The Roundhouse on 14th (both of which are free entry, by the way) you have some great opportunities to catch us in action!
Aside from that, April sees the start of us hitting the studio! Taking full advantage of the access to Echo Factory, we’ll be getting started on a single to launch alongside our headline show at 2Funky Music Cafe in June! It’s all very exciting!
So, just a little update for you all! Hopefully we’ll be seeing you at one of the shows! Until then, live long and prosper
April 6th sees a triumphant return from the Homeless Shakespeare band, with a twist in the line up! This time, Lon will be mastering the funk on the bass, Tom will be back on the pounding beats and we welcome a new member, trumpet player Adam Davison of Not My Good Arm and Brassick Bears, to the troupe!
Alongside us, Pi Bar have Situation Cure, and still more to be announced, coming to entertain the locals! As per usual with Pi Bar, entry is completely free and drinks are pouring!
What a show!
Last night, a few of the Homeless Shakespeare troupe gathered at The Shed. Away from the cold, we huddled into a neat row on stage and spewed out a set of the finest gyp-hop and ramble rap you could think of finding! Or at least it was well talked of by those in attendance.
The rest of the evening was no less exciting, with The Social Ignition expertly warming up the audience’s skanking legs with their exciting Ska, full of groove and grit, followed by the headliners Mr Tea & The Minions.
The Bristol based band had the party going consistently strong with their upbeat, gypsy-jazz party vibes. Not a pair of legs in The Shed remained still for more than a moment with these guys’ stupendous sound pouring from the speakers.
The lovely folks of both bands even did a CD swap with me, and they’re absolutely brilliant!
The Social Ignition currently have a huge list of gigs coming up throughout the coming months; be sure to check their Facebook and see where and when you can see them!
Similarly, Mr Tea & The Minions are currently striding through a string of gigs themselves! You can find their dates and venues on their website
