BARBARELLA'S BANG BANG ARE EXCITED TO START THEIR
BI-MONTHLY RESIDENCY AT THE BEST PUB IN TOWN....THE BIRD'S NEST!!
Come and witness the beginning of this beautiful mayhem...
On Friday, 6th April get involve with us and these tasty artists...
Balothizer are an Electric Power Trio formed on the streets of
Haringey, North London.
The project was the brainchild of bassist, vocalist and percussionist Pavlos Mavromatakis (Electric Litany, The Turbans) and lute player and guitarist Nikos Ziarkas (Valia Calda). Having been active in London’s Cretan Folk music scene for years, Pavlos (aka Pav Mav) and Nikos enlisted the skills of Stephen J Payne (Jools Holland, Jose Feliciano, Future Sound Cartel) a London born multi-instrumentalist with a deep background of world music and western styles, to bring
the power necessary for this exciting new genre; Post Cretan.
With the line-up now complete Balothizer embarked on a series of high-powered shows, tours and festival dates across Europe,
delivering their unique sound with an energy and ferociousness
that has built them a strong and loyal following. A following which together with the band came up with the tagline that now defines this unique and powerful genre of music... CRETAN MUSIC FROM HELL
PETER VON TOY
Rock Drenched Blues Tinted Folk Songs "Von Toy's raw voice contrasts with his hippy folk acoustic guitar style on the stomping, road dog testimonial of Chicago Come Down and others. He is a worthy disciple" – Blues Magazine #31 PETER VON TOY is quite a curiosity and certainly the most independent artist on the scene. In a deliberate attempt to go back to something organic in an industry gone wrong and in a world where people prefer listening to internet rather than going to support live music, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO RECORDED MUSIC AVAILABLE. His rock drenched blues tinted folk songs only live live and travel around the world solely by word of mouth . A novel and pioneering method that in only 18 months of existence has led him to play over 150 live shows, in 13 different countries across 2 continents including support slots for GILBY CLARKE, NASHVILLE PUSSY, THE HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION, BOB WAYNE, JETTBLACK or Django Unchained and Grammy nominated artist BROTHER DEGE.
