An Evening With PAUL-RONNEY ANGEL (The Urban Voodoo Machine)
Paul-Ronney Angel ate his parents and fled the fjords of Norway with just a bottle of moonshine and several slices of decomposing fish in his back pocket. (Before he left they tried him in the Norwegian Army – he lasted a total of five hours.)
After that, Angel washed up in London during the dying breaths of Thatcherism and took advantage of all that swinging London had to offer: he sold The Big Issue, busked Johnny Thunders & Robert Johnson numbers in Soho bus stops and played guitar for anyone who’d have him.
The Urban Voodoo Machine came to him in 2002 as a fully-formed idea. He’d lead a band who’d play ‘Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll’. They’d dress in black and red. There would be a LOT of them. And their music would sound like a great night out in a dangerous part of town. From the get-go, The UVM fused junkyard blues and stinging rockabilly with mariachi horns, fiddles, sinister cabaret and punk rock tangos. “I wanted to play rock’n’roll music with a different instrumentation,” says Angel, “taking inspiration from everything from delta blues, latin and gypsy music without losing the spirit and attitude of punk.” His lyrics – part Lemmy, part Bob Dylan – made other (more acclaimed) songwriters sound totally. Fucking. Boring.
“Not Americana and definitely not ‘retro’,” says Angel. “I write songs about living in London right now. Although having a shit time, no money, heartbreak, mental illness, addiction and suppression from the big guy is kinda universal and timeless, I guess…”
“drawing deep from a dirty well where Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Dick Dale are enjoying a burlesque all-nighter with Ennio Morricone” (Classic Rock).

Sunday Sessions with ERIC SOMMER
"If there's a place for musical perfection, it's wherever you'll find Eric Sommer - A blistering acoustic style plus a variety of slide and open tuning formats will knock you for a loop..." wrote Studdie Burns, Melody Hut UK in 2013.
"How one guy can do this so well is remarkable, but if you look a little deeper there's a batch of road miles around this lad... and it all makes sense."
Texas, Oklahoma and Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and... points universal - it's safe to say this writer and creative musical iconoclast is slowly making his way all around the coffee pot... and appearing - and making diehard fans - everywhere!

UK Blues/Soul artist for the 21st Century - “Smooth Neo-soul with a wicked twist of Blues” (Blues Magazine).

SPECIAL EVENT Drink and Draw with MARTHA HILL
Martha Hill is heart-stoppingly brilliant. Fusing soul, edgy indie, acoustic folk, and contemporary pop to stunning effect. It's a sound that feels as though it's been around forever, and at the same time utterly contemporary and cutting-edge. Hill's superb, stop-you-in-your-tracks jazz-blues voice and unshirkingly honest, kitchen sink lyrical style summons the ghost of Amy Winehouse, backed up by superbly original, starkly minimal arrangement from her band. Don't miss out!!!

Halloween Special with JO CARLEY AND THE OLD DRY SKULLS
Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls throw Old Time Roots music, Ska and Punk into a backwoods still to make musical moonshine!
Fronted by Jo Carley and backed by her songwriting partner and husband Tim Carley, they are joined by an assortment of double bass players and other weirdos they meet on the road. Sometimes nicknamed the 'Carley Twins' because of their long dreadlocks and shared obsessions with creepy music and dark imagery, this pair have created a sound of their own!
The driving force is Tim’s One-man-band set-up with Kick-drum, hi-hat and guitar while Jo’s vocal delivery sounds like the leader of Satan's own gospel choir. This is made even more bewitching as she switches from fiddle to mandolin to washboard. Possessing an energy that elevates the audience, this duo sound more like a stompin' 5 piece band.
A band that lives to perform, Jo Carley & The Old Dry Skulls have been touring extensively up and down the UK at some of the best festivals and clubs on the circuit. They are looking forward to taking their new album across the UK, Europe and beyond, so come and shake your bones in appreciation!
