The Maida Vales
The Maida Vales
The Maida Vales draw their musical influences from across Europe with band members deriving from as far afield as Milan and Sicily, Italy to St.Albans, England.



Their refreshing approach to music sees The Maida Vales avoid the usual suspect sounds that we've heard time and time again. Instead, the band favour the more eccentric tones and feel good numbers of the early Stones, Kinks, Ska Skanking Upsetters and the more recent, Dandy Warhols.

Jack Goodall and the Kick
Jack Goodall and the Kick
Jack Goodall and the Kick perform their own kind of music. Funky and bombastic mixed in with the delicate and sedate. Jack Goodall’s contagious stage presence coupled with lyrics that deliver a raw and observant take on the world takes audiences on a journey that leaves them wanting more. Backed with Jack Smith’s energetic drumming, whooping and wailing, David Rees-Jones’ exuberant percussion, Emma Reading’s edgy yet sensitive guitar and Kieran Kennedy’s punchy bass, together they create a unique musical force not to be missed.

“Beautiful music, I love it” – Guy Garvey, Elbow, BBC6 Music
“Awesome” – Boris Palekh, Gogol Bordello and Hey Guy
“The best live act in the West Midlands” – Songwall
