Thurs 9th OCT: OFFLINE JAMM SPECIAL!!
Brixton JAMM, 261 Brixton Rd, Brixton, London SW9 6LH.
Tel: 020 7274 5537
Nearest tubes: Brixton, Oval, Stockwell
8pm-2am, FREE ADMISSION!
NOTE THE EARLY START! We've got some many great acts to fit in that the first act will be on at 8.30. Shazia will be on around 8.45 with the bands starting at 9.15.
This is going to be a MASSIVE night of fun with over forty Samba drummers, the Trans Siberian March Band, the incredible Dr Joel with a full bill of cabaret and comedy including the outrageous Shazia Mirza, plus DJs, video, Craft Corner and more - and it's all for FREE!
Don't miss this one! An electrifying feast of dancefloor-delighting Brazilian samba, delivered in a unique Bhangra, Funk and Drum 'n' Bass style will turn the club into an instant Carnival. Expect up to 40 drummers and get ready to shake your booty harder than it's ever been shaken before - they tore the place apart when they played Offline back in June!
Described as " Ivor Cutler of the subcontinent" Dr Joel combines South Indian Classical Vocal Percussion - a jaw-dropping display of impossibly fast verbal beat-boxing called Konnakol - with witty, obscure lyrics.
"This guy is absolutely brilliant! You have got to go to this!" Decode Magazine
"On a scale of one to ten ... eleven" The Daily, Bombay
"Dr Joel breaks nearly all of the established musical rules. But whatever he does it seems to work brilliantly. With killer songs" Larmer Tree Festival
"Enthralling, it's music that could easily inspire you to contort your body in a wild jig" BBC
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: Dr Joel is a living legend ...if you ever have the chance of going to see him live, do it. You'll regret it if you don't." Birmingham Mail
TRANS SIBERIAN MARCH BAND
A wonderfully chaotic and exhilaratingly brilliant 12 piece gypsy Balkan brass sensation packing a fiesta of tubas, trombones and clattering things, the Trans Siberian crew have been picking up rave reviews. Catch them before they head east to the Balkans over the summer!
"Balkan ska meets Ottoman battle punk in The Trans-Siberian's obscenely infectious brass blow-out"
"The Sex Pistols of Balkan Brass...Punk brass world beat oddities"
"Music of the people for the people by this Balkanic-Latino band who love to party" - TIME OUT

Solo comedian, comic poet, raconteur and MC, Richard Tyrone Jones' material ranges from the downright daft, to the witheringly self-deprecating, always cut through by a strong vein of sardonic humour, bold leaps of the imagination, a strident voice and some really cheesy gags.
