Brilliant festival band that mix it up and put their own spin on well known songs. Fantastic ability to just get people up and dancing on the first song. Amazing energy that you will find incredibly infectious!
A rock covers with it's heart firmly entrenched in the 1980s. When men thought they were men and hairspray was in short supply! Travelling up from London these guys are a firm favourite on the London pub and club scene. We had to pull a few strings to get them here but we are sure they will put on an amazing show!
The Uptown Monotones are known for constantly delivering musical surprises. Their Repertoire boasts a fresh mix of off-beat driven Popsongs, unique cover versions and an avalanche of electronic and ethno inspired improvisation performances. Over the top and yet strangely sane, their explosive stage presence will rock your boat like a hurricane!.
Housejammerz - headliner
Performing Dance/House Classics totally live and true! - nothing else comes close! This band played RNB in 2019 and did a storming 50m set. The crowd (and us) couldn't get enough so weve invited them back to do a marathon 1hr 30m set banging out the most amazing dance classics. Really not to be missed!
