We are chuffed to present, for your listening and watching pleasure, some of the most interesting acts from around these parts. All on one night. Lucky you.

Please note, doors for this gig open at 7pm and the first act will be on stage at 7.15pm, so get there early!

Elephant in the room is the evolution of the ponderings of a bloke who played bass in a prog rock band ages ago then had a 30 year break before deciding to write music and have a go at singing and playing the guitar.
An acoustic trio based in Suffolk, we are; Carl Scott on vocals and guitar, Fern Teather on vocals and Sam Thurlow on percussion and vocals.
An all original, varied mix of rocky/ folky/ acousticy/ singer-songwritery melodies.

False Colours are a quirky electro-acoustic duo featuring David on the rarely seen shiny blue electric tenor guitar and vocals, and Polly on bass and vocals. Hailing from Sudbury in Suffolk, their music is an original mix of traditional folk style, rough and ready punk/indie and catchy pop with more vocal harmonies than you could shake a stick at (if that indeed means anything).

Folk Punk Singer-songwriter James Morgan has been plying his trade around the UK for the last ten years, playing gigs from Cornwall to Glasgow. He writes songs about assassins, pirates and road trips. Nobody knows why.

Well what can be said about Bad Luck & Lightning? Not a lot yet as they're pretty new. We booked them because of the quality of the musicians in this band. Apparently their influences are Kraftwerk, The Kinks and bad sci-fi. We're looking forward to finding out what that translates into on stage!

Also known as Jon. DAMD (as he probably never abbreviates his name to) is a fella with a Uke and a quiver full of fun songs.
