The Shed Opening Night
Sat, 1 Apr 2017, 20:00 – Sun, 2 Apr 2017, 02:00 BST
In 1994 The Shed opened, and became one of the staple music venues for many bands across the industry.
After running for 23 years, it then became time to switch things up.
We'd like to invite you to join us in celebrating the next era, and attend the grand re-opening of The Shed on Saturday 1st April.
We're thrilled and honoured to announce that the headline band for the event is The Electric Swing Circus!
Haven't heard of them somehow? Well, The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of saucy 20's swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from 1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding audience.
The ESC’s sound is a powerful combination of electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show. Their debut, self-titled album is available now on Ragtime Records.

They're incredible, basically.
And it doesn't stop there, as kicking off the party are local legends The Bear and His House Rockers.
Plus, there will be many other quirks throughout the evening.
Tickets are £8 advance, and more on the door.
Admittance from 8pm.
