The Electric Swing Circus, is a bold, brassy 6 piece band with an explosive repertoire of 20’s swing and banging electro beats. The ESC hotfoot their way through everything from rock to electronica, house, big beat and rock & roll. They are festival regulars for good reason and their dazzling show 

“Their sound is huge; their energy is infectious and the show unique” -John Walsh –Shambala Director

“Sure-fire festival favourites” -Nick Hollywood (White Mink Black Cotton)

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.
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 (entitled ‘Denizen’) will make it another busy year.

Stagger Lee (Jumpin' With Stagger Lee) will be bringing the finest NoLa sounds on vinyl, from second line jazz to funk to cajun. So throw him some beads, mister
