Details of some upcoming events in 2018 below:

THE JUKES AND SPECIAL GUESTS BANDA BACANA

Wednesday December 26th

BOXING NIGHT BOP WITH THE JUKES AND SPECIAL GUESTS BANDA BACANA

In a tradition which dates back to 1984, the annual Boxing Night Bop at the Victoria hotel in Menai Bridge with the Jukes and friends takes place on Tuesday December 26th and as always it should provide another unmissable evening of rockin' rhythm and blues, stompin' soul and festive frolics to lift those Yuletide spirits. Special guests this year are Afro-Latin funksters Banda Bacana who just released their new album ‘Stop the Planet’ at a sell-out gig in Pontio recently and are guaranteed to pack the dance-floor. This should be a hot one.

Doors 8pm. Admission is £10 on the door but make sure you get there early!


Birds of Chicago

Sunday January 27th

BIRDS OF CHICAGO

Birds of Chicago have been riding a swell of good mojo in the Americana world since their inception in late 2012. With their latest album, Love In Wartime, they have both confirmed that roots world buzz and broken on through to a wider audience across the world. Critics have scrambled to find the right terminology to describe the deep lyricism, gut-punch singing and fevered musicality…“Secular gospel” was one phrase that caught some traction.

Built around the chemistry and fire between husband and wife JT Nero and Allison Russell, who both played with different bands in the mid-noughties (Po’ Girl and JT and the Clouds), before finding their way to each other. Their brand of rock and roll poetry can be a little hard to categorise for people insisting on categorising, their voices are undoubtedly the centerpiece. Nero’s fractured country soul croon is wrapped in Russell’s silver and gold tones for a harmony blend like nothing else in music today. Fired by the band, it’s a full tilt revival – streamlined poems, deep grooves, sharp hooks and joyful singing straight from the gut. The Birds attract a mix of indie rockers, jam-kids and folkies to their gigs, which alternate between moments of hushed attention and wild, rock and soul abandon. Says JT Nero, chief songwriter for the band, “A good show can send you back out into the night feeling — for at least a little while – that everything isn’t broken.. Right now, we wanna dose out as much of that feeling as we can.”

“Birds of Chicago seduce us with their joyous, intimate, spare, rousing, soaring vocals and their hauntingly evocative lyrics.” - No Depression

Doors 7.30pm. Tickets £13 available from Palas Print Caernarfon (01286 674631) and Mudshark Records Bangor.
