►RUTH ROYALL & THE CERULEAN PROJECT◄
RUTH ROYALL & THE CERULEAN PROJECT whose soundscapes hold you like a sonic hug. Ruth’s music comes from her core, layered with joy, melancholy, a hybrid of old and new. Blithely crossing boundaries of soul, electronica and R&B. Honed after years of experimenting with her sound and performing as a jazz singer on the UK and Berlin circuits.
«One of the most versatile singers I've worked with» – Mo Pleasure (Earth Wind and Fire)
‘The Southwest’s Princess of Soul’ – Sam Bonham (BBC Introducing)
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, ANDY V is certainly a one of a kind artist and act. Skilled across a range of instruments, Andy has created his very own live looping set that will impress and amaze his audiences. Since the age of 13, Andy has been honing his skills as a jazz drummer, saxophonist, keyboardist and vocalist. In recent years, Andy has established himself as right hand man to independent superstar, DUB FX.
Now with his very own unique show inspired by reggae, dub, drum and bass, Latin and jazzy grooves, Andy has his mind and heart set on making big waves in the UK and Europe in 2018. His debut EP 'The Offering' is now available across all major online music stores.
The LBJBs play heavy funk tunes with their own twist and are ramming dance floors wherever they go especially at LeftBank Bristol for their weekly residency. The 5 piece are breaking out to larger audiences recently playing the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club and Glastonbury. Don’t miss the chance to see them play Hootananny Brixton for the first time. The band features musicians who have played live or recorded with Dr Meaker, HeadShy and Dennis Rollins.

This rising trio bring an unparalleled intensity to their performances which consistently see audiences mesmerised. Gaining notoriety from their weekly residency at north Bristol’s burgeoning musical hub The Gallimaufry.
Featuring James Vine (Cousin Kula, FeelGood Experiment) on drums, Harry Stoneham (Route2Roots) on bass and Alun Elliot-Williams on guitar who has quickly become one of the most in demand guitarists in Bristol. James won the Love Supreme Jazz Festival Discovery Competition in 2016 with his soul/hip hop hop outfit FeelGood Experiment. While Cousin Kula have recently been hotly tipped by NME, BBC6 Music and Line of Best Fit. With Route2Roots, Harry has supported the likes of Akala, Wu Tang and Talib Kweli.
RAMSAY fell in love with DJing at 13, when he first saw someone use two turntables and a mixer, and has been selecting and mixing for dancefloors ever since. He fuses together an eclectic selection covering genres from afrobeat and jazz through to grime and drum and bass to take you on a rhythmical journey. Expect infectious rhythms to keep your feet moving.
