This coming Thursday sees another cracking night of original composition down The Joiners Arms. Headlining the night we have booked in the wondrous, musically talented Kumi who plays alongside Kester on the Cello. Kumi regularly plays throughout the UK and never fails to impress with her catchy music, subtly subversive lyrics and a style that is unlike anybody we have heard to date. She has played the Joiners on a number of occasions now, and has been invited back purely on the basis that it's obvious her l isteners love what she does. We agree! Listen to some of Kumi's music at the following links: http://www.facebook.com/kumimusic http://soundcloud.com/kumi/sets/entr-e/ In support we have Tom Price Stephens, JD Smith, Aidan Parle and Gorgeous George. Tom is a reasonably new act down The Joiners Arms. A gentle little soul with some well thought out chords and a voice not unlike James Taylor. Don't assume gentle suggests a lack of substance however. Tom Price Stephens' songs are filled with body; an herculean body at that. Just let him do the talking (and singing) We are delighted to welcome back J.D Smith to the Joiners Arms. Rumour has it that J.D Smith has played every venue that John Bundy has run, and we like to think that John has good taste in music. So if J.D Smith weighs the same as a piece of wood then what makes J.D Smith? A witch! But we aren’t doing the burnin'! He is! With his slide blues guitar and voice from the pits of middle earth. Gorgeous George is another new, but timely addition to what promises to be a stonking Thursday night of music. We first saw Gorgeous George take to the stage a number of weeks ago. This boy can slide. Where J.D Smith stands up and throws out slide-ridden fire from the belly of his bosom, George sits quietly, like one of those deep sea creatures that look tame and innocent. It's not so much what George does in action as what he does technically that proves poignant. He's played few times but has been asked back for the simple fact that he's bloody good. Aidan Parle is a regular player down The Joiners Arms and will be joined by Kester Hynds and Matt Clarkson on bass. Aidan recently released his debut E.P titled Carnival, packed with a variety of songs from slow melancholic folk ballads to upbeat rock. As always, come down, enjoy the booze, buy a pizza and spread the love. If it's original music written by those who love original music then the Joiners Arms is where it's at
We are delighted to bring you a feast of top notch musical entertainment for September's charity fundraiser 'Notes for Notes'. This time around we will be raising money for our local charity ‘Camberwell Choir’ school. For more information on Camberwell Choir School please visit http://www.camberwellchoirschool.org.uk/ Tom Price Stephens will be opening the night at 19:30. Tom came highly recommended, and while we have not yet seen him play, we wait in eager anticipation. After years of playing beaches, barbeques and bedrooms, 2012 saw Tom take a raft of new material to the streets of London. Focusing on honing live performance before making his first record, Tom has played over 80 gigs so far this year and is still enjoying playing wherever people will listen. Check him out on: http://www.reverbnation.com/tompricestephens Ceri James goes on at 20:15. Formerly in London based bands including Zen, and Tuesday Heartbreak, Ceri is now following a solo career and featured on the first Angular CD that was voted No1 compilation of 2004 by NME. To hear some of Ceri’s music please check out: http://www.reverbnation.com/cerijames Russell Swallow follows on the bill at 21:00. Russell has played The Joiners a number of times now and always goes down a treat. Russell Swallow is an indie-folk song writer, playing with a gritty ensemble of guitars, piano, violin, brass, drums/percussion and many, many voices. After growing up in the beautiful but rather sedate Suffolk Countryside he came to London as a rocker but discovered he'd brought Suffolk with him. Born out of Sunday roast dinners, long bright walks across Walthamstow marshes and late night whiskey sessions; it's music to dance to, sing to, and fall in love to. For more info check out: http://www.reverbnation.com/russellswallowandthewolf After Russell blows us away, Ben Barritt takes to the stage at 21:45. It was actually Russell who recommended Ben play the Joiners a few weeks back and to be quite honest; he blew us away. Ben teaches guitar in the Contemporary School of music in Kilburn, and when you watch him play it’s pretty easy to see why they have him tutor. We can honestly say we’ve never seen so many chords and variations within the confines of one song. Ben had previously spent many years working with cover bands, but the past 2 years has seen him hone in on original composition. It’s what we love the most and his songs are quite simply outstanding. To quote D.J Dazz “If I were a woman I’d have sex with him right now”. No need to say much more. Outstanding. Check out Ben’s tunes at: http://www.reverbnation.com/benbarritt At 22:30 we have our main support act with Aidan Parle and The Carnival Red. Previously, Aidan has performed solo, as a duo and as a trio but this Saturday you will see him perform as a four piece, bringing in Dave Hattee on drums. Aidan is no stranger to the Joiners, and many of us know his powerful set; a combination of heartfelt contemporary folk numbers that touch into punk and rock that steeped in satire and social commentary. Aidan released his debut E.P in July 2012 titled Carnival Red. For more information, please visit: http://www.reverbnation.com/aidanparle Last but not least, John McClean and his band take to the stage at 23:15. John has played the Joiners as a soloist as well as with his band, and he has always gone down a storm. John’s songs have a unique way of dragging an audience to their feet. It’s rock n roll, it’s blues and it’s pure. John will be playing with his full band and we highly recommend you stay to the bitter (sweet) end. Unfortunately we cannot find a web link for John, but take our word for it that the reason he’s constantly asked back is due to the standard of his performance. See you there folks! Don’t forget we serve delicious pizzas, and have an excellent selection of beers, ales, spirits and wines. Please give what you can in support of Camberwell Choir School
