Wille and the Bandits

wille-the-bandits-press-shot-website-756x540

Wille and the Bandits is a classic blues rock three piece much in the vain of Cream or The Jimi Hendrix experience. But in a similar way to how these bands pushed the genre in their time, Wille and the Bandits try to take their sound beyond what is expected of such a traditional line up.

They have received great critical acclaim, being voted in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and reaching number 2 in the UK blues chart with their first single on downloads alone. Now touring their third independently released studio album Wille and the Bandits fan base, repertoire of sounds, styles and innovation seems to be growing at an exponential

It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting rather than settling for a tried and tested formula. Ten seconds of Youtube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band.

Support for this event is from Blackballed, the guitarist from New Model Army....

The Very Important Child

9238-compressed

The Mostly Everything People - present a bold and comic dance theatre show that blends movement, text and music.

You are a child trapped inside an adult’s body, you learnt to mistrust when you were 9 months old, and you have been engaged in a battle with the outside world ever since.

This is a show about the development of the ego, psychological warfare, and throwing one’s toys out of the pram.
