Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate 

A local Rock band who play a mix of progressive rock classics and acoustic rock, a touch of metal, blues, a hint of minimalism, and some electronica. Often seen in different line-ups, but on this occasion they will be performing as a trio set (vocals/guitar/bass/drums), with special guest drummer David Stark. Malcolm Galloway fronts the band and regularly puts on charity gigs, and recently put on fundraising events for Save The Children, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Ehlers-Danlos Support UK, and Brain Tumour UK.

John Etheridge’s & Vimala Rowe

John Etheridge-Toon guitar (1)

John’s reputation in the jazz world cannot be overstated. A genuinely virtuosic fusion guitarist, Etheridge is one of a handful of players who can claim to have helped shape the character of modern jazz guitar. He has been described by fellow fretsman, Pat Metheny, as ‘one of the best guitarists in the world’. A hugely respected artist in his own right, Etheridge also claims an impressive collaborative history, from his seminal work with groundbreaking fusion group Soft Machine to his longstanding status as the guitarist of choice for jazz icon Stephane Grappelli.

Young singer Vimala Rowe took the role of Billie Holiday in Alex Webb’s music-theatre show ‘Cafe Society Swing’, but though flawless tributes to the great jazz vocalists are a specialty of hers, she is also an award-winning original composer, a sometime rap artist, and a world musician trained in Hindustani classical techniques.

‘The AutistiX’

A unique rock band, creating their own songs since April 2010.

They are especially original as the 3 youngest members have autism, making their music even more special, plus they have 2 dads and sons in the band!

‘The AutistiX’ are keen to be recognised for their musical talent and are proud to include musicians with autism. They aim to increase the inclusion of musicians with disabilities, but are not a ‘disability band’

The band performs at well known London music venues, local festivals, and charity gigs including playing for over 1100 people who gave a standing ovation, especially following their impromptu performance of the Beatles’ Help!, together with Sir Tom Jones!!!

The Experience Makers

Formally known as Richie Rich & The Rich Boys they are a dynamic power blues-rock trio who will certainly bring the house down. Playing the likes of Hendrix & “Stevie” (Ray Vaughan) influenced tunes, they are Blues Rockers that pack a punch and guarantee to be in your face! They toured for 5 years back in the 90’s and have only recently re-formed after 20 years apart, like all good Rock ‘n’ Roll bands do!

The Fabulous Micky C & The Wasted Playboys

North London’s best kept secret. The finest songwriter North of Camden Town, The Fabulous Micky C and his rockin’ band The Wasted Playboys are one of the Fiddler’s Elbow favourites. Great songs, wonderful harmonies wrapped up in a heady mixture of rock, country, blues and ballads.

Local lads still waiting to make good!

The Beautiful Game

“The Beautiful Game are a British Indie rock band from Camden, London. The band comprise of singer Jason Crowley, guitarists Lawrence Bonavia and Steven Foxley, bassist Paul Jeffrey and drummer Neil Murphy. The bands debut album ‘Line The Streets’ was released in March 2017. It is driving, chugging, instantly anthemic with catchy choruses. “Britpop with teeth and a score to settle”.

Kareem Shabazz & The Ryddim Kings

2017 is surely the breakthrough year for Kareem Shabazz & his five piece Ryddim Kings. Right now one of London’s hardest gigging and most talked about reggae bands. In Kareem’s words “Playing live is where it’s at” and their musical range and confidence suggest that there’s nothing they can’t take on, from driving roots to the 21st century rocksteady of self-penned ‘Dirty Dancing’ on Big Youth’s immortal ‘Sky Juice’ rhythm. http://www.ryddimkings.com/music/

This band just get better and better, so don’t miss their headline appearance at the South End Green Festival 2017!

Master of Ceremonies – Mr Steve Bowyer

Steve is Camden born and bred. As a sixteen year old he started work as a porter at the Royal Free Hospital. Whilst there, he got the acting bug and performed in the hospital pantomimes and with the Royal Free Players. Steve now works in a primary school and in his spare time produces and promotes stand up comedy events.
