The Floyd Effect
Date: 10th March 2018
Details:  The music of Pink Floyd as it was always meant to be heard

Having toured since 2007, The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the iconic music of Pink Floyd. All of the band’s members are top quality musicians with pedigrees that stretch across all manner of musical genres, and they faithfully recreate the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to backing tracks, racks of computers, or other technological wizardry. Every note that you hear is played and sung by the band, making each concert a genuine ‘live’ experience; powerful, immersive and emotional. And, of course, the music is supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen, two sets of projections, smoke and lasers.

Sit back and enjoy the Floyd Effect as the band presents a musical journey through the Pink Floyd canon including a complete performance of Dark Side Of The Moon – unbroken, as it was always meant to be heard.

Unless you were there the first time around, the music of Pink Floyd was never as real as this.

As a show this was as good as it gets. The timing, delivery and recreation of the Floyd sound was faultless, and many tracks took me to places I had forgotten existed as the sound washed over me.

Unbelievable! I heard The Floyd Effect for the first time last night. To say I was blown away would be an understatement. Terrific music, brilliantly performed reducing me to tears. I did not ever expect to hear this wonderful music performed live in this way. Thank you for a truly fabulous evening.

I had the good fortune to see the original Pink Floyd twice. The Floyd Effect are as good as the original line up and, with the intimacy of the venue, it’s like being in the front row. They were stupendous. I would urge any Floyd fan to make the effort to see them. You will be elated.

John Bramwell (I Am Kloot)
Date: 16th March 2018

I Am Kloot’s songwriter and frontman, John Bramwell, has announced the release of his first studio solo album “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” and a live tour of a brand new show in November 2017.

The record is a stunning showcase of John’s skilful, widely acclaimed song-writing and his unique voice. It’s the first completely new collection of songs by John as a solo artist since he started his adventures away from I Am Kloot.

“Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” has been inspired by John’s travels around the UK and Europe performing more than 300, intimate solo gigs. Travelling in his VW Campervan with his dog Henry, the experience allowed John to explore parts of the country hitherto unknown, develop his solo sound and ideas, and meet an awful lot of interesting people…

The album is inspired by the spirit of liberty, independence, adventure and solitude that John has enjoyed on the road, as well as the diverse emotions that escape and travel can bring about – from sadness to exhilaration.

His live show is testament to that too. Audiences can expect a highly personal experience from a performer who has completely immersed himself in the experience of connecting with live audiences of all kinds. This adventure has taken John to little rooms above pubs (after promising a fan he would play in their town that ‘doesn’t have gigs’) to World War II underground bunkers in Germany.

It’s about rediscovering the romance, intimacy and magic of the live music experience, one to one with the audience. The new show will include songs from “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces”, a handful of songs from his follow up album, which he has already started to record, and ten I Am Kloot classics that he has rearranged with other instruments.

And of course there’ll be the usual off the wall chat and tall stories…

This is a chance to see one of the country’s most talented songwriters at the top of his game.

Leave Alone The Empty Spaces is released on 3rd November.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony.

Doors: 7:30pm

The Joni Mitchell Song Book
Date: 24th March 2018
Details:  Both Sides Now presents The Joni Mitchell Songbook

Of all the leading lights of the West Coast singer-songwriter movement, Joni Mitchell remains its most influential figure, with a body of work running the gamut from folk to mainstream pop, right through to modern jazz and back again.

This comprehensive survey of Joni’s career includes landmarks such as Big Yellow Taxi (her most covered song), River and A Case of You (both from the breakthrough album Blue), the radio hits of Help Me and Free Man In Paris (from double-platinum Court and Spark) and the jazz-infused stylings of In France They Kiss On Main St (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) and Coyote (Hejira).

Both Sides Now brings together a group of top-drawer musicians, led by singer Sarah Miller and keyboard player Aidan Goldstraw, whose devotion to Joni’s back catalogue shines through in performance. This is no mere ‘tribute act’ – it’s an evening spent together, exploring the work of a musical genius.

*Please note this is a seated gig and there will be no support artist.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Doors: 7:30pm

£14 ADV/£16 OTD
