Ahab [+]

Free Entry Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

The most exciting harmony-infused Americana/Pop outfit to emerge on the scene since Mumford & Sons.

Outstanding songs, a huge sound and an unrivalled stage presence – with the looks to top it off! ahab had a truly incredible 2011 – which saw them playing at over 20 festivals throughout the UK & Europe, releasing their 2nd EP ‘KMVT’ and a tour support with the mighty Bellowhead.

With 2 hugely popular EP’s under their belt, an album in the pipeline, a sold out headline gig at HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival and rave support (& frequent airplay) from Bob Harris & Simon Mayo, ahab continue their climb to the top. Highly, highly recommended.

They are blistering live – alt-country edge and sheer class.”  Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“East London’s ahab could be the alt-country’s Mumford & Sons…” Q

“when it comes to delivering a high energy show there are few their equal” Americana UK
