Last Show: Friday 7 th December 2018

PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone)

David Migden & The Twisted Roots return to PizzaExpress Live Maidstone for an exciting evening of truly original music. This unique 5 piece take American Roots Music and twist it into their own sound. Beefheart, Little Feat, John Spencer Blues Explosion and Tom Waits are some of their influences. They will be featuring new material mixed in with old favourites. A bluesy night not to be missed!

Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.

“With his amazingly beautiful voice, Midgen seduces the listener – luring him into his musical kingdom, supported at all times by a band of incredibly accomplished musicians who seem to have mastered a dozen instruments between them! The clear and warm sound of this analog production, like the album itself, leaves nothing to be desired.”

Classic Rock Magazine (Germany)

"Voodoo blues? Jazz-inflected soul? Whatever you call it, the quintet’s current release Animal & Man is a gem. Every tune is laced with compelling imagery and chock full of atmosphere. The playing is top-notch without once going over-the-top and the production lets it all shine through – above all, Migden’s soulful voice, which is almost too pretty for the blues. This brilliantly executed album belongs in the hands of anyone for whom music is the ultimate medicine.”

Funke and the Two Tone Baby 

From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming to a 40 date festival tour in 2017, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary’s Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit. 2018 will see yet more shows from Funke and his long awaited third album will make it another busy year.
