Due to phenomenal success last year this event returns to Ginglik again to excite & entice with two wicked bands, an ultra sexy burlesque troupe and three phat DJs! It’s bound to be another sell out! Get your tickets fast.
The Instants – London based five piece retro indie rock band The Instants are Simon (bass) Rob (drums) Dave (Guitar) Gemma (acoustic guitar/ keys) and Steve (vocals). An eclectic bunch of characters, all hailing from different corners of the capital, brought together by the love of the sounds each other make. We have been described by others as ‘Retro pop with mucho charm, like a scuffed up Kinks or a fuzzed out punky take on the Smiths’ www.bugbearbookings.com, who’s catchy, individualistic and nerve-hitting tunes are testimony to the creative work of five quirky people with big dreams and even bigger passion for music.
” If you put the Kaiser chiefs, XTC , Kinks and Smiths in a room, pumped them full of crystal meth and viagra and watched what ensued, the twisted freak of a love child would be something like this band” – www.musicnews.com
Influences? a blend of many both classic and contemporary, none of them conscious. Have a listen – what do you hear? NME Radio- ‘An exciting new group…’
The God Damn Disasters – Four dudes playing wild nuevo-rockabilly anyway they can! The London based band were formed in 2010 by Johnny Fox & Billy Lightning. The later additions of Fletch ‘Sweet Touch’ Elliott & Iain ‘The Power’ Mackay completed the line-up.
Shamelessly stolen licks, riffs and melodies are ripped up and glued back together, creating rock ‘n roll monsters which first tapped their toes during the birth of rock ‘n roll, It’s a mix of rockabilly, country and dirty rock ‘n roll called drunkabilly!
The Folly Mixtures are London’s electrifying burlesque troupe, bringing a mix of song, dance and striptease to guarantee a fun nights entertainment. The cheeky selection box have something for everyone, including bunny girls, fan dances, pirates, balloon pops, naughty office workers and lots lots more! Join us for an evening that you won’t forget!
‘Cancel the rest of the guests- things are looking up!’ Alan Titchmarsh
“A lovely balance of classic strip and flirty pop, I can’t remember the last time I smiled so much during a show. They are seasoned pros, each lady a strong, stand alone stripper and together they are a bowl full of frothy, sparkly fun” – Ruby Jones, Burlesque Beat
“The four bombshells deftly spurred the public into a whooping, wolf-whistling frenzy, masterfully adapting the intimate language of burlesque to the daunting magnitude of a proper West End venue.” – C.J. Lazeretti, Erotic Review
“An enticing night of all-round fun and glamour, with something to appeal to every burlesque lover, be you new to the scene or a burlesque aficionado. The Folly Mixtures and friends will put a smile on your face and have you whooping to see just a little bit more.” – Rhian Kenedy, Erotic Review

Mel De’vil has been DJing since 1999, after many years of staring up at the DJing box in wonder. Since then he’s been into almost all forms of dance music at one time or another, always searching for something new and exciting. However he’s found most success playing either Drum and Bass or House, which he will be playing for us this evening. In the last 10 years he has DJed in many venues throughout London and beyond, including Ministry Of Sound, SEOne, Hidden, Herbal and the Scala. He’s also appeared on many Internet and pirate radio stations including Subliminal ado, Life FM, Origin and Rude FM. In the last year or two he has concentrated more on playing house and tech-house and believes that now is a great time to be into the 4/4 sound, with great music being released from the likes of Claude Von Stroke, Maya Jane Cles, Julio Bashmore and many more new names appearing every week. Mel loves warm chunky baselines and tunes with some soul, but what always brings him back to House music is the groove, that sound that grabs you and sweeps you up until you realise you’ve been dancing for hours.
