Jamboree: The Final Push. Fundraising Party, Limehouse Town Hall | Limehouse Town Hall | Saturday, 09. December 2017

One more big push everyone! Please help us have the final big night we need to keep going with Jamboree. We have hired Limehouse Town Hall on Saturday December 9th, and need to take the roof off! We will party till 3am! Share, plan, invite!

Here we go with the line-up as confirmed so far…

Whiskey Moon ****!
“Born into a puddle of whiskey beneath a stark winter moon and raised by cold winds, schooled in the warming spirits and hungry for more, Whiskey Moon **** manage a natural, graceful sound built from many ports. The spellbinding voice that haunts Hackney’s back streets, the clarinet that floats through open windows with impossible lyricism, and the double bass that meanders beneath. Always innovating and improvising with stark originality, Louisa Jones’ troupe of underground musicians play with a virtuosity you could never expect. Songs which speak of the unspeakable, with understated humour, captivating storytelling and a transcendent spirituality.

“The result of a thousand drunken nights, countless dreamy days, and years of musical adventuring, Whiskey Moon **** take you on a voyage into a bohemian underworld which you never knew existed.” – (Theo Bard)

Luce Lemons! Brilliant fire performance artiste

The Gator Dog Snappers!
New Orleans Second Line Jazz, Rebirth and Trad Jazz! The Gator Dog Snappers met in Spotted Cat Music Club, Frenchmen Street, New Orleans, many moons ago, before manifesting in London Town, where they now nail the dancefloors at London’s top swing dance events, and help fuel cross-cultural exchange by regularly hosting visiting musicians from New Orleans in their Lewisham digs. In the original spirit of the second line, they are also committed street musicians and grass roots activists, and can regularly be found sticking it to the Tories on protests across the UK.

The Rum Buffalo ****!
Fusing authentic old time swing with stomping hip hop rhythms, and on this night pionerring a more Latino, Tom Waits, punk and jazz-inflected sound. Expect something special!

The Relatives!
