The pair are are children of the 90's era and have grown up watching Salman Khan and Shah Rukh doing their thing on screen. Their dramatics on screen have added a touch of influence to Bunty and Bubbly's songs.

The Brass Funkeys

The Brass Funkeys are a trailblazer in the new generation of UK Brass Bands.

Formed in 2011, this nine piece collective has a unique sound forged from their strong personalities and eclectic individual tastes, whilst still paying homage to their New Orleans Brass Band roots.

The Brass Funkeys have honed their skills over 10 years playing the club and festival circuits in the UK and Europe, always exploring new musical directions while refining their exciting, eclectic and energetic live show, bursting at the seams with ideas and infectious energy.

The Brass Funkeys frequently appear on festival main stages (Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Lost Village, Love Supreme, North Sea Jazz Festival) as well as performing at world renowned venues (Ronnie Scott’s, Koko, Cambridge Corn Exchange).

After the cancellation of dozens of live dates in 2020, The Brass Funkeys did not take lockdown lying down, instead embarking on an ambitious project to release four EPs to catalogue the band’s journey.

You may have seen the band performing at the 2019 Lantern Parade and headlining Lanterns Live gig.

Julian Siegel (tenor sax)

Siegel is a British jazz  saxophone  and  clarinet  player, composer and arranger, described by MOJO Magazine as 'One of the UK's most creative saxophonists'.

Winning awards, from the BBC Jazz Best instrumentalist in 2007 to best album in the 2015 Parliamentary awards, shows Siegel’s consistency in a world class arena. But there’s much more to one of the UK’s strongest improvisors. As much at home playing with large ensembles as small bands, Julian has of late been writing music for his own jazz orchestra, as well as playing Germany’s prestigious NDR big band.

But it’s the small band setting is where we get to hear his effortless and inventive approach to improvisation. Some obvious references to Joe Henderson and John Coltrane are evident but Siegel is truly a unique figure in British Jazz. Like any master-craftsmen, there is a sense of freedom in his approach, which greatly allows for that feeling of being in ‘the now’.

This evening will hear the saxophonist direct the band through a selection of tunes that will sound as energetic and fresh as the day they were penned!

Featuring Alex Hutton (piano), Jez Brown (bass) and Gene Calderazzo (drums).

What to watch for – the special musical connection between the drummer (Gene Calderazzo) and Siegel himself. We’re especially pleased to have international star Calderazzo in the band tonight – definitely an evening not to miss!

'Spontaneous sparkle, Siegel's wailing, swerving lines burst with character' John Fordham, The Guardian

Royal Opera House Live: Madama Butterfly

190 mins.

‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’

On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, Un bel dì, vedremo (One fine day) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Sari Schorr - Back to LA tour

From her humble beginnings, working the music scene in the legendary fierce South Bronx of New York and on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, to live performances at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hal, alongside TV shows like Conan O’Brian.

New York based Sari Schorr initially gained prominence throughout the blues world after several years of touring the US and Europe with Blues legend, Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist, Popa Chubby. Schorr was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

In Memphis in January 2015, a chance meeting with legendary record producer Mike Vernon (Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Peter Green) moved Sari’s career in a more exciting direction. Within 5 minutes of hear Sari sing he offered to produce Sari’s debut record. Through Mike’s connection Sari was immediately signed to the UK’s leading Rock/Blues label – Manhaton Records.

In the last four years Sari formed her own band, and toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe. She has been described by many music pundits as a modern-day hybrid of Janis Joplin and Tina Turner - a red-hot rock singer who radiates emotional intensity, connects with and inspires her audiences, and leaves a lasting impression that’s larger than life.

Motherland Voices with Tsungai Tsikirai

Tsungai Tsikirai, a Zimbabwean born singer, songwriter and performing artist who has lived in Maidenhead for the past eighteen years.

Her show, Motherland Voices is all about sharing Southern African music and dance performances in an effort to promote her African heritage and encourage others to celebrate theirs.

In this performance which features artists and musicians she has worked with since relocating to England, Tsungai has promised to use music as a tool to break barriers, promote physical and mental wellness and inspire the future generation through high energy performances.

Tsungai says 'Motherland Voices, is a personal journey that she want to use to encourage individuals to celebrate their culture.'

This musical journey is inspired by the sounds of African queens that have graced international stages, on whose shoulders many, including Tsungai Tsikirai stand. The music brings back childhood memories, of summer nights in her ambuya's (grandmother's) hut with it's thatched roof, warm fire and the smell of peanut butter porridge. Lullabies were sung by ambuya at night, after a long day at the fields. These lullabies are the sounds of the motherland that have been and are still a part of her journey and ultimately her music.

As never seen before, Tsungai brings you the rich African music and dances from her childhood. This is her story.

You will enjoy the Zimbabwean cultural music and dance as prepared and performed by Tsungai Tsikirai and her live band.

Please note that this event will be filmed and photographed.

Keith James in concert: The Songs of Leonard Cohen

‘There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in’ Cohen’s most memorable and visionary line from his song ANTHEM.

If ever there was a sentence in modern poetry to reflect on and give hope and understanding to us all, it is this line. This Concert begins with ANTHEM.

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and the courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each word.

The chilling announcement of Leonard's death marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. Our World misses him very much.

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving almost 500 concerts – close to 150,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and sometimes in Andalusia, Spain.

Included in the concert are Cohen’s well-known songs: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne, and Hallelujah alongside his rarer and profound writing such as Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are songs from his posthumous album Thanks for the Dance such as What happens to the Heart and Keith’s dramatic performances based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca – Cohen’s greatest influence. Keith has also transcribed into song one of Leonard’s poems from his collection ‘Book of longing’ written whilst on retreat during the 1990s.

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent

‘Good work! Glad you are keeping Leonard’s songs alive’ Sylvie Simmons, Biographer – The Life of Leonard Cohen

‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times

‘An elegant and beautifully crafted reinterpretation of a great Artist’s words’ BBC Radio Scotland

‘Certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’ The Guardian

‘All the tears of time are shed in a few brief lines’ Times Literary Supplement

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts Verdi’s glorious, monumental score.

Flash - A Tribute to Queen

Flash – Hit after hit, anthem after anthem, guaranteed to blow your mind, as quoted by the BBC ‘as close as it gets’.

Flash - A Tribute to Queen, established in 2001 brought together the finest musicians from several Queen Tribute shows to form a ‘best of the best’ live tribute to the musical legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen.

Every member of the group has been creatively and technically inspired by Queen, each using replica equipment, adding that extra sound characteristic and obvious visual treat to the decerning fan, they take great satisfaction and pride in producing a show that performed in authentic costumes, brings back all the magic that made every Queen concert so very special.

Entering their 52nd year, Queen amassed a huge back catalogue of hit records and it’s been hard work trying to construct a show that captures their creative history in such a small amount of stage time - but the band guarantee the show to be a non-stop jukebox of the very best of Queen, hit after hit, anthem after anthem, with audience participation at a high from the very start.
