More About The Soul Destroyers
More of a tribe than a band, the mighty Soul Destroyers have been playing their mix of cheese tinged, horn driven soul since Adam was a lad – the line-up has come and gone, some have drifted into the sunset, and some have (genuinely), during their reign as “Best Party Band in Bristol” (Bristol Evening Post/Venue Magazine), been born, grown up and then joined the band!
A 13 piece line up, with 6 awesome horns, 3 singers and a rock solid rhythm section it is an unnatural phenomenon of truly awe-inspiring musical power.
So yes it’s sort of soul covers from all the usual suspects (Motown, Stax, Atlantic) but don’t be surprised if you end up at some very unexpected musical destinations – ever noticed how bits of soul classics end up in some unusual contemporary tracks? … well they have and they aren’t afraid to take you there!
More About The Arkansaw Jukebox Collective
Lock up your moonshine – The Arkansaw Jukebox Collective is coming to town!!
They’ve loaded up the pick-up for a rare trip into town for ’tis true the awesome Arkansaw Jukebox Collective will be playing their now legendary set of covers by everyone from the Sex Pistols to Stormzy (yes… really!) – but, of course they play ’em “just like god intended …. Bluegrass style!”
The moving feast of humanity that is the collective (girls, blokes, fiddles, banjos, trumpets – just play what y’brung!) deliver a show stopping performance with covers of very well-known numbers (cue the big sing-a-long!) but with a real twist as they unearth the hidden country heart in EVERY genre of music. Rock, pop, hip-hop, dance, rap – they all get the treatment!
I know it sounds bonkers, but it kinda works!
