If you’ve ever seen King Porter Stomp busking on street corners, in packed festival tents or in major venues round the UK, you’ll know that these boys came to party. King Porter Stomp bring together their own unique union of ska-funk-dub and afrobeat and top it all off with cleverly crafted conscious rhymes. With massive horn lines, heavy bass and intricate guitar work, they have pulled on heart strings and won over the dancing feet of crowds across the UK and into Europe. Renowned for their eclectic and energetic live shows, the seven piece are now ready to release their eagerly anticipated second album ‘Shuffle’ in the summer of 2012.

2011 saw King Porter Stomp’s public profile raised significantly with a commission from Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London to co-write and perform the music for a brand new contemporary production which ran throughout August and September. With superb major press reviews, King Porter Stomp made their music accessible to brand new audiences. With a full UK tour in the Autumn and the recent video ‘Let It All Out’ quickly gaining over 10,000 views, King Porter Stomp have laid strong foundations for 2012. Their blistering second album is ready for release, the brand new single ‘Hot Coals’ is making waves and King Porter Stomp are at the absolute top of their game.

Free admission before 9pm, £4 thereafter

Lazy_habits_Logo_Master


With the hype of upcoming sophomore album The Atrocity Exhibition fully lighting the way, brass  infused hip-hop trailblazers Lazy Habits are set to ignite the UK music scene once again!

The evolution of their sound has resulted in a wider, more cinematic feel, using more strings than their debut and featuring some of the best up and coming talent in the UK including Dizraeli and The Hackney Colliery Band. “A more intense sound and visual marks the return of Lazy Habits.”The Unheard Nerd.

The first single The Breach features Taron Egerton (Kingsman – Secret Service) in the official video, and has now racked up well over 130K Views on Youtube, as well as gaining airplay on BBC 6 MusicBBC Introducing, and Amazing Radio amongst others and now also synced with 2016 cinema  release ‘Allycats’.  The band has also agreed sync rights for The Breach to feature in an upcoming Cinema release.

Filled with ‘aggressively pounding beats and brass’ (Altsounds) alongside slick lyrics about modern British life, Lazy Habits master infectious hooks and clever arrangements, making their stage show the benchmark others aim for and are one of the tightest and most powerful live performances in the UK. They haven’t just racked up a cult following at home though, with the band returning fresh from a string of sold out dates in Asia 2015, where they are famed for collaborating with Asian superstar rapper Dwagie’s alongside US rap heavyweight DJ Premier.

FREE ENTRY

joe leo

“Joseph Leo is a talented musician with gallons of potential for the future. Lyrics that mean something that you can relate to are just one of the many things going for this guy along with the simplistic values of the acoustic guitar beautifully entwined together with soft vocals and the occasional introduction of a harmonica. Definitely one to watch, not often someone like this catches your eye, but when he does, you sure won’t forget about it.”
