Telfords has hosted a salsa club in Chester for over 15 years and we’re now launching Latin MANIA!

Learn Cuban salsa lessons every Wednesday with Lee Baker and Rachael Lynette. Lessons are provided for all levels of ability, from complete beginners to experienced dancers. You don’t need a partner – you’ll change partners all the time in a friendly, fun group.

8.00 pm: Separate classes for Beginners and Improver level

8.45 pm: Intermediate level partnerwork and Improver (and above) rueda (Cuban group dance, performed in a circle or ‘wheel’)

– Beginner classes introduce you to salsa music, teach the basic footwork steps and let you take your first steps dancing with a partner.

– Improver classes build up your repertoire of fundamental partner work sequences.

– Intermediate classes build up more advanced partner work and solo patterns, and help develop body movement and musicality.

9.30 pm till 12.30: Dance into the night with a mix that includes salsa, timba, bachata, regaetton, merengue, latin pop and more.

Classes are just £5 for one class or £7 for two classes. Entry to social dancing after 9.30 is free.

E/I/N presents Paris Youth Foundation [+]

Free before 9pm…£4 after.

Free all night with a student card.



 Liverpool’s Paris Youth Foundation are fast on their way to joining that crop of young musicians ready to spearhead the British wave, if sold-out tours and banging tunes are anything to go by. – NME

Dreamy indie anthem that you won’t be able to get out of your head. Full of mesmerising guitar hooks and compelling lyrics – Wonderland Magazine

They’ve picked up influential friends already, including BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, who audaciously played a live set in full on his show last year. – Feisty Magazine

With a raw, lo-fi aesthetic producing the feeling that their is best listened to at full volume in a badly lit room with smoke floating through the air, the single suggests very interesting things in the future from Paris Youth Foundation. – Getintothis

CHESTER’S NEW ALT-MUSIC NIGHT

 


 
APPEARING ON Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Tankus the Henge [+]

Free before 9pm…£4 after

Free all night with a valid NUS card or Telford’s membership.

tankus
Tankus the Henge is the London based, five wheeled, funk fuelled, open top, custom paint job, rock ‘n’ roll jalopy that comes careering round the corner on a tranquil summer’s day. Ruining the silence and disturbing the bats.

Having played over 1000 shows all over the world the Tankus the Henge live experience is something to behold. Combining wild showmanship and musical dexterity their sound incorporates rock, funk, blues, ska, roots and gypsy rhythms and their songs tell stories of wonder and woe.
Since the release of their first album in 2013 the band has toured extensively across Europe and also become a favourite on the festival circuit.
Tankus the Henge have played at:
Glastonbury, Benicassim, WOMAD (UK and Gran Canaria), Isle of Wight, Boomtown, Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude, Bestival, Les Fanfarfelues, Port Eliot, Shambala, Solfest, Artisti in Piazza, Waterford Spraoi, Secret Garden Party, Fusion, Beautiful Days and many more.
With their charismatic frontman, Jaz Delorean, looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film Tankus the Henge launch into their live shows like a band possessed. They’ve left audiences breathless at headline shows including Scala, The Garage, The Borderline and The Jazz Café. They’ve featured on TV, in major advertising campaigns, toured Albania as emissaries for the British Council and made records in Nashville, Tennessee.

All the band’s singles, ‘Cakewalk’, ‘Recurring Dream’, ‘Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker’ and ‘Weather’, have been featured extensively on radio including plays on Alex Lester’s Radio 2 show as well as Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins’ 6 Music shows.

“That’s wonderful, ..I love that. It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in. His voice is his own, …so great. I love it.”

(Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker)

Dave Davies – The Kinks

“Like The Clash from New Orleans” Nikolaj Torp Larsen – The Specials

“….a virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul. With copious helpings of R&B blues, funk, disco, Django, a dose of Dexy’s, a drop of Ray Davies and a pinch of Madness emerging throughout the eleven tracks – it’s an exciting mélange of sound.”
Simon Wells (Guardian)

Spring 2017 sees Tankus the Henge embark on a 15 date European tour that visits seven countries over a period of three weeks before returning to the UK for a further 12 shows around the country.
