Christmas is a coming early and we have fantastic musical treats for good and bad alike!

Stranger Than Paradise presents THE BALKANOES, fusing Eastern European and Jewish folk music with a joyous energy to guarantee a Balkan bash of mammoth proportions!
Moving seamlessly from traditional klezmer to gypsy grooves and unique takes on well-known classics, this ferociously fine 9-piece band mix up a goulash of Balkan brass and fiddle with klezmer flavours so to create a hot, soulful party music that always gets audiences dancing with joy

THE BOHEMIANAUTS, special guest star Hugo the creepy puppet will join the band for a rare Christmas outing as he’s usually back In his box by midnight
Out of the delightfully twisted remains of the artists formerly known as Fantasmagoria staggered a crazed singer-accordionist with a clutch of songs used and new, and often misappropriated… A bohemianaut is one who travels through uncharted spaces towards some notion of “bohemia”, and The Bohemianauts are a mutable combo of such travellers, playing and singing as they go.

DRY WHITE BONES, regurgitated from the post industrial chaos comes the black fingered rusty throated duo
+
Burlesque with MARIANNE CHEESECAKE, a slice of heaven in high heels playing homage to Anna May Wong in a seductive Christmas fairytale

(Plus Santa’s Grotto Snow Show and Mistletoe `Mayhem!)

DJS SACHA DIEU & MS MANRAY play Balkan Gypsy, Electro Swing, and Rock & Roll mixed up with some winterly Crimbo classics
