We love live music here at The Stable so we’ve lined up some incredible acts across our restaurants!
Here are the weekly music highlights…..
Stable Bristol – Saturday 25th November, 10pm.
Bakara is a unique combination of musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Dominica, Trinidad and Southern Ireland. Each musician contributes his individual sound and style – Reggae featuring a Kora and Djembe, Township with a Calypso bassline, Hilife with Blues Harmonica, Soca with Balafon and Flute. Baraka features musical collaborations that you are unlikely to hear with any other band. Baraka is edgy, experimental and innovative without losing sight of the fact that entertainment is the key.
Fronted by Ben Baddoo, Master Drummer and Dancer from Ghana, on Percussion and Balafon, delivering a potent combination of driving rhythms and subtle vocals. Chris Cobbson, also from Ghana, adds his unique brand of funky African and Jazz guitar. Royston Gage from the Commonwealth of Dominica brings in the Caribbean influence on bass. Tony Bailey from Trinidad on drums delivers the rhythmic heartbeat, and Brendan Whitmore adds the finishing touches with some explosive Saxophone, Flute and Harmonica. Bakara is regularly augmented by Special Guest Modou Cissoko from Senegal on Kora and Djembe
Stable Whitechapel -Saturday 25th November, 8.30pm.
This Saturday we’re continuing our World Music theme at Whitechapel with some unmissable traditional Klezmer and Balkan music from the fabulous Boz Trio. They’re a trio normally but are playing a special show at The Stable as a five piece, so the Boz Quintet then! In their own words….
The Boz Trio’s are made up of musicians that will take you to distant shores, sailing across the deep ocean of the traditional music that takes its roots into exotic and faraway lands. You’ll sit around a campfire with the cossacks in the Russian steppe, be moved by the jewish music’s poetry, you’ll dance restlessly to the catchy balkan tunes, and you’ll be fascinated by the greek rhythms. In just a few hours you are going to travel miles and miles, without pollution and with no need for travel documents…….
Rouben Vitali, clarinet
Simone Draetta, violin
Luca Pedeferri, accordion
Davide Longoni, guitar
Stable Whitechapel – Thursday 23rd November, 8.30pm
This Thursday we welcome Brazilian jazz/world music specialists the Phil Dawson Trio to the Stable Whitechapel. The trio features One Brit and two Brazilian Londoners, with influences drawn from both sides of the (southern) atlantic…
Matheus Nova (bass) is well known for his collaborations and contributions to projects with Antonio Forcione, Ed Motta, Saravah Soul and Jazzinho. Marious Rodrigues’ (drums) deep knowledge of grooves from all over the planet has helped him contribute to a large catalogue of folk, fusion, pop, jazz as well as Brazilian recording projects. Phil Dawson (guitar) has appeared, recorded and collaborated with a long list of well-known artists from both Brazil and West Africa, where the inspiration for many of these grooves originates.
This guitar, bass and drums combination puts a huge variety of sources through the blender: from David Bowie tunes to Marcos Valle and Joao Donato; original tunes have been forged from flavours of South African-tinged gospel, Ghanaian hilife, Brazilian baiao and desert blues from Mali.
Stable Bristol – Thursday 23rd November, 9.00pm.
This hot-club style outfit take you on a musical journey through desert caravans, mediterranean vibes and 40s swing-dance halls! Expect some gypsy jazz featuring some clarinet and some driving baritone sax, all under pinned by the tight swing of vibrant guitar and bass. What more could you possibly need!
