47 Soul / Sabrine Jenhani

Saturday 26 October 2019
Culminating their last London show of the year, Palestianian powerhouse 47SOUL returns to the capital for a pulsing headline performance supported by Tunisian singer/songwriter Sabrine Jenhani.

Returning from 3 US tours this year, a Tiny Desk concert and a new album in the pipeline, the trailblazing 4-piece are back to the capital for an anticipated full-length show. A powerful mix of traditional Palestinian street music combined with electronic beats, funk, hip-hop and rock, 47SOUL has become one of the most promising acts from the Middle East (and a London favourite). Adding analogue synthesizers, hypnotic guitar lines, and stirring verses in both Arabic and English, their unique sound and  stage dynamic has been selling out shows internationally.
Support on the night comes from Tunisian singer, songwriter and composer Sabrine Jenhani. Formerly part of the Tunisian duo Ÿuma, Sabrine’s stunning vocals and compassionate renditions are now reworked into a new project titled ZÃY, performed for this show with Tunisian guitarist Ghassen Fendri

This event has been made possible with support from Al Araby TV.

Leprous + The Ocean + Port Noir

Friday 8 November 2019

In a time where progressive music is rising and there are so many options available to new listeners, it takes serious guts and personality to turn heads anymore. Norway’s Leprous has done just that in recent years, and it has been such a joy to watch them emerge into the limelight of awareness within the progressive community. It is no wonder, however, as Leprous continues to mature and to cling ever closer to their hearts when crafting new music.

Slade – The Rockin’ Home For Christmas Tour 2019

Friday 20 December 2019

It’s Christmas! And it wouldn’t be Christmas without Slade… Cum on feel the noise at Slade’s Picturedrome Christmas Party.

Slade – without a doubt, one of the most exciting bands to come out of Great Britain in the past 50 years. With their unique blend of perfect pop rock’n’roll, outrageous flamboyance, pure fun and no less than 23 Top-20 singles – of which six were No-1 smash hits, plus six smash albums – Slade have become a firm favourite in the hearts of pop fans all over the world.

Don Airey (Deep Purple)

Friday 28 February 2020

In these days where everybody seems to want to show off at every given occasion, Don Airey is without a doubt “One of A Kind”.It is hard to find a name amongst all those that over the last 30 years have left their mark in the history of rock that has not utilised Don’s keyboard skills at some point. Amongst them Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Brian May, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and, obviously, Deep Purple, the band of which Don Airey has been a full time member for over fifteen years.

Don Airey has never been a session player. Bands and artists work with him for his unique musical vision, for the twist he gives to songs. It is with the same passion, the same energy, the same talent that Don Airey approaches his very own songwriting.“One Of A Kind” is a true classic hard rock gem with melodies, great riffs and solos and a unique band unity.

To top it all, his new solo album has been written and recorded using the spirit of a band featuring the following talented musicians: Carl Sentance (from the current lineup of British legends Nazareth) is a singer that all fans of metal voices like those of Rob Halford and Graham Bonnet will love; Bassist Laurence Cottle,who has played with everyone from Black Sabbath, to Gary Moore, to Chick Corea,forges a great rhythm section with the thunderous talent of Jon Finnigan, apparently as loud on stage as he is at the after show parties.
