A collection of rogues and misfits surfing a tidal wave of horns, fiddles and guitars! Rapidly exploding from the Balkan Brass genre they emerge as an anarchic orchestra of passion and originality.
So enter the big top and be immersed in the winding world of the hurdy-gurdy, the sonorous land of the tuba and the exotic realm of the duduk. Be ready to be engulfed by a wall of mesmerising virtuosity and a whirlwind of frenzied dancing. You may enter unknowing but you will leave spellbound!
SUITABLE: FOR ALL
Like so many of you, we have lots of great memories from our times at Glastonbury over the years-the fun, the frolics, the fans, and yes even the mud! It’s sad that it’s not on this year, but wishing everyone a happy #GlastonburyAtHome and looking forward to sunnier times ahead in 2021 when maybe we’ll see you all there again!!
Wow, it was only back a few months ago that we played our last gig before lockdown here at Hootananny Brixton, and like every one we’ve done there over the years it was a real cracker! Great vibe, great crowd and a load of fun!! So it’s very sad now to hear that like many venues up and down the country it’s facing a real challenge to survive in these current times.... Live music is gonna need all of us to pitch in and keep it afloat if we want to share it, sing it and dance to it together in the future!!! So please do what you can, do what you feel able in order to help, and hopefully we can save venues like this and all meet there for music and merriment in the better times ahead!!!!
Stay safe and well everyone, and look after each other.
Xxx The Destroyers xxXHootananny Brixton needs your help to save our venue and community.
Hootananny's doors are shut and we are facing the very difficult challenge of trying to survive whilst being unable to operate as a live music venue.
We have to pay £19K a month in running costs of the venue whilst it's shut. We have lost over £60K since the start of lockdown.
We're an independent family run community music venue without cash reserves and no shareholders, so for us this is a devastating blow.
Hootananny's ethos has always been about providing a space for music and people from different communities and cultures, and being able to offer a space to showcase music which is often underrepresented.
Hoots supports the livelihood of 120 people every week including bar staff, musicians, DJs, promoters, security, food operators, sound engineers, lighting engineers, cleaners & more.
We will open as a vastly reduced capacity pub with social distancing, but that will not cover our costs.
We don't currently know when we will be able to get back to full capacity, some are expecting it could be 6 months or more.
At this point we're trying to get funding from every source possible, but we're now asking for your support. If you can, please help us to save our beloved grassroots venue and community. ... See MoreSee Less
