Friday Tonic: Peluché

Friday 1 9th April 2019| 6pm | Queen Elizabeth Hall| Free

The London-grown trio deal in irresistible Latin bass grooves, instrumental flourishes, funk breakdowns and a touch of magical lyricism.

Peluché are pioneers of ‘trip jam’, an emerging genre that fuses elements of Latin, funk, psychedelia, soul and hip-hop. With divergent influences including Kate Bush and Cocteau Twins, Peluché’s freewheeling artistry has cemented their position in London’s diverse music scene.

They released debut album Unforgettable via One Little Indian Records in September 2018 to critical acclaim.

Saturday 20th April 2019| 2pm | Royal Festival Hall , The Clore Ballroom, Level 2

Tear up the dancefloor to the 11-piece brass band Bring Your Own Brass’ trademark mix of hip-hop beats, heavy riffs and irresistible grooves.

Forged in the fires of Passing Clouds, BYOB regularly packed out the legendary venue well into the early hours. Since then BYOB have been whipping up a storm at festivals and venues across the UK and Ireland.

In 2017 they headlined the opening night on the main stage at Glastonbury’s Shangri-la; they have packed out stages at Boomtown, Shambala, Lovebox, Citadel, Hootananny and
the Scala. With their first EP about to drop, this is a live band you can’t afford to miss.
