It is announced that ‘The Dream Jazz Collective’ shall descend upon The Art House Cafe on the night of Saturday 18th March for an evening of music, spiritual and social consciousness raising and community dancing.
Based around the music and presence of Southampton-born Jelly Cleaver on guitar and vocals, the band comprise Seth Evans on keys (keyboard and computer), Nikita Foster Losak on bass and Guillaume Trionfo on drums. Though their current home on this earth is in London, they draw happily from several nationalities. It is difficult to describe their music in words, you may call it whatever you want that has meaning to you, we shall call it, ‘Dream Jazz’.
Southampton shall be their fifth stop on their first UK tour, promoting love and also the release of their debut single, 'Angela', dedicated to civil rights and social activist and educator, Angela Davis.
They shall be joined by the beautiful music fairies which are STANLÆY. Created by queen of the Fairies, Bethany Stenning, they have developed a soundscape somewhere in the blurred realms of ethereal gypsy punk-pop. Other makers of this mermaid music include Ed Holland on bass, Jon Pilgrim on drums, Charlie Hawkins on backing vocals, and a string quartet of Ellie Dawson, Matt Andrews, Emma Benson and Sophie Blundell. The Fader Magazine describes Bethany's sound as "eerie" with "Kate Bush-esque vocals" in their review of her song 'The Love Machine', which made it through to the long-list of Glastonbury's upcoming talent competition 2016.

Our Director Paul Bickmore (better known as Bik) spends a lot of his time tracking down a varied, interesting range of performances for us to host here at The Art House.
A seasoned musician himself (as well as being the man who does the sound engineering on the night - something he does extremely well), Bik hand-selects the very best acts to showcase in our gallery space - his criteria?
<-- They have to make him feel like this - and they will have the same effect on you, we promise.
We are a city centre venue and parking can be in short supply. If you are driving, please make sure you leave plenty of time to find a space click here for a map of where the nearest parking spaces can be found.
We recommend Kings Park Road car park:
We are about 10 minutes walk from Southampton City Centre train station (head up the hill toward the Guildhall clock tower) and on the route for most city centre buses (the Unilink U1 stops virtually outside.)
Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)
Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comformatable seating is provided. We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Events are open to all ages unless otherwise stated, however please note that our mission is to provide creative activity primarily to adults, therefore most of our programme is aimed at 16 years and over. Performances may include stronger language.
Life drawing classes are open to over 18s only.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If you have a smartphone, we prefer that you save paper and show us your ticket on a phone.
What is the refund policy?
Tickets are not refundable unless the event is cancelled.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
As long as the person making the booking is with you, that's fine.
Experience world class, fringe and local acts up close and personal in our intimate gallery space.
Most timings for performances list the doors open time, which is usually 30 minutes before the performance starts.
