Expect a heady night of rollicking good-times, stirring songcraft, and the clamorous live energy the band have become renowned for. In support will be neo-blues funksters, and good friends of the band VALVE CONTROL, as well as Brixton folk-steppers THE MELODIC who we also adore! ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ Come party with us, and help us celebrate all the hard work we’ve put in!

We bring you another excellent night of music down the Joiners Arms Camberwell this Thursday. Yes it's the home of fine wines, a selection of beers and yummy pizza; but that's not all. Headlining is the extremely talented James Riley who recently won the busker of the year award. James plays a mix of Americana and Cajun. Accompanying this is his quality voice and song writing capabilities. James will be supported by the ever talented Winston Skerritt. Winston is the shy man who lets his exceptional playing style, soft thought-provoking vocals and strong songs do the talking. Also supporting is the electric, funny and eccentric Dan Hunt from The Black Sparrows. We've heard Dan before and he's always welcome down The Joiners. Clever tongue in cheek lyrics about social issues and massively catchy chorus. Come one. Come all. Buy a pizza and enjoy the music!
make 2013 a break out year!
