STEVIE BEAR - Full Moon
Doors 8.30pm - 2am
Swingrowers are a young, dynamic Italian 5-piece Band from Palermo in Sicily.
The band is known to the audience for the large tour in Europe and North America (also to the opening of Parov Stelar, Chinese Man and Caravan Palace), furthermore for the debut album "Pronounced Swing Grow'ers", in which the mixture of jazz, swing manouche and sounds derived from the dance/electro has been able to create a cool mix and overwhelming. The group boasts an archive of important collaborations, ranging from The Lost Fingers to theofficial remix of "One Day" by Caro Emerald. It is these days the announcement of a new album and a new video clip, for which the Swingrowers have prepared a live show that promises to make sparks on stages around the world.
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. A Swinging rhythm section - driven by the Balkanic sounds of the Tuba, Manouche Guitar rhythms and Drums- provides the foundations for MCspokeMao to deliver his own style of beat-poetry, with Clarinet & Flute ripping through the melodic lines. Be prepared for anything and make sure to bring along your dancing shoes!
