★ IMMIGRANT SWING ★
These festival veterans are a diverse intercontinental band of Riot Gypsy swingers who really know how to get a party started and dance floors jumpin' and jivin'! For one night only they're gonna be getting into all kinds of misbehaving with the 'Out On Bail' Crew! Before heading up Brighton Great Escape Festival and plenty more this summer.
The band have recorded their debut album 'First World Problems' which will be up for grabs at the show.
★ RED RAY & THE REPROBATES ★
Are a Country and Soul, Rock & Roll Band. This Northern rooted and West-Country bound traveling band are getting ready for several summer shows! They're on the run and hot on the heels of a self-titled brand new album. Destined to be your next favourite live band. Full of drink fueled fun and delivering a show with harmonies soaked in the finest moonshine and lyrical genius! The band really do give it everything they've got and has resulted in gaining a following of great bands and friends for life.
★ NEWTON COUNTRY ★
Are the sort of band that are at the right place at the right time! Never missing a beat, this Bath based trio have stolen the hearts of everyone who has ever seen and heard them including Dermot O'Leary.
These young guns have been released from their recording studio for good behaviour and are touring around the island hijacking shows with a style you can't fault. Effortlessly Róisín McNeill is an Irish jewel of a singer backed by Ollie Henwood in a June Carter and Johnny Cash'esque rustic country line-up joined by axe-man extraordinaire Joe Coombs providing savoury guitar licks that make other bands jaws drop.
For the record: The 'Out On Bail' crew will be documenting the night so live recordings of the show will be available and submitted as evidence that history was made and everyone attending is over 18 and accountable.
There will also be a raffle prize which will include merchandise from the bands.
Immigrant Swing offers its own blend of Bristol Riot Swing – a high energy, foot stomping, acoustic music merging sounds from around the globe, with influences ranging from Gypsy Jazz & Blues to Mediterranean Folk & Hip Hop. Featuring a swinging rhythm section – driven by Double Bass, Manouche Guitar rhythms and Drums. This provides the foundations for MCspokeMao to deliver his own style of beat-poetry, with Clarinet & Violin ripping through the melodic lines. Be prepared for anything and make sure to bring along your dancing shoes!
