Shakatak
Show Time 8:30pm / Doors Open 7:00pm

Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music – but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group. Because of the nature of their music, their fan base is one that is far reaching while always retaining an “underground” element. This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily as serious jazz/funk musicians, enjoying both high “cult” status and instant recognition as a household name.

Jah Wobble ‘Invaders Of The Heart’ (STANDING GIG)
Wed-27-Apr (7:00pm):
Jah Wobble ‘Invaders Of The Heart’ (STANDING GIG)
Show Time 8.00pm / Doors Open 7:00pm

John Wardle originally met John Lydon, John Grey and Sid Vicious at Kingsway College, London, in 1973. It was Vicious who originally nicknamed John “Jah Wobble” after a drunken binge, and would also loan him his first bass guitar. During the heyday of punk rock in the mid to late 70s, Wardle earned himself the reputation of being something of a wildman. His original introduction to the bass stemmed from his long-term obsession with dub reggae music. Combined with the D.I.Y. punk ethos, Wardle embraced punk and reggae, and in the process, created an original rock/reggae hybrid of his own.
After discovering his fascination with the bass guitar, Lydon asked Wardle to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) during the spring of 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass immediately put PiL on the map and became the backbone of the band. ” The band’s debut album Public Image Limited included the band’s eponymous first Top 10 hit single. After two magnificent albums, including the mighty Metal Box, Wardle became increasingly disillusioned by the music scene and the politics of the band and their reluctance to play live, and eventually split from the band in mid-1980...

This performance will be a standing show on the main floor. There will be tables available on the balcony. Please call the Bookings Line on 0207 439 4962 (option 2) if you wish to book in the Balcony.

Maidstone Fringe Festival 2016: Nick Harper

Maidstone Fringe Festival 2016: Nick Harper
Show Time 8.30pm / Doors Open 7:00pm

2016 promises to be an exciting, celebratory year with a lengthy UK tour planned to support the third and final vinyl 'retrospective' album, with one box to unite them all. He will also be sporting a new live album, 'Hark!' - A recording of songs from his award winning shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2003. Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father's Whatever Happened to Jugula? in 1985. Nick's talent and energy entranced Roy's fans and it was inevitable that he would begin touring and recording in his own right. The 1994 EP Light at the End of the Kennel was swiftly followed by his powerful 1995 debut long player Seed prompting The Independent to describe him as "hugely talented".

Support from John Forrester. THEN…In the early 90’s Forrester was the singer, bassist and lyricist for The Colour Mary: a very loud guitar band described by Melody Maker as a ‘grand canyon of glorious noise.’ AND NOW…When on breaks from solo outings, Forrester plays bass & double bass with Robb Johnson, (‘the real deal when it comes to songwriting’ – Radio 2).
