The Sunset Lounge Presents - The Christmas Special

The Sunset Lounge cordially invites you all to our annual Christmas Party!

This year really is going to be a special one! Just look at the acts we have for you:

Headliners: forest of fools

forest of fools fuse traditional instruments with funked-up, high tempo beats, charting a course into the depths of the musical unknown. Where no single tune is exactly as it seems, this is Acoustic Dance Music but not as we know it!

In the blink of an eye, you'll be whisked from the courtyards of Medieval England, to an underground warehouse party. 180 BPM D&B and Jungle Drum sections masterfully interlaced with African Percussion set the tempo for a high-energy supernova of effects-laden trance-folk Melodeon and psychedelic Lead Guitar. Harmonious funk-laced Bass Guitar sits alongside didge-inspired, multi-phonic Sousaphone Brass to create a sub-bass frenzy with serious groove. The resulting composition is as ground-breaking as it is sonically beautiful; a true musical odyssey for the 21st Century.

Head for the dance floor, you're in for one hell of a ride!

Main Support: Project Noise

Second Support: Billy Nómad

Billy Nomad is a mysterious traveller made famous (or infamous, perhaps) in recent years for his appearances with The Blockheads, The Wurzels, Cassetteboy, Beans on Toast and chap-hop legends Mr. B & Professor Elemental respectively. He appeared on the UK music scene after a small tour of Europe in 2014 and quickly made a home here, releasing his first album Covered in Tea in the summer of 2016. He has since completed his 90 Days of Busking and Blighty meets Billy tours, massing over 200 gigs around the UK.

He also likes tea. A lot.

No, really it's not normal.

Forest Of Fools appearing at this event

With influences ranging from folk, jazz and world music to funk, drum & bass, and perhaps even a touch of the classical, this 'jumped up folk' band's music is spliced with cunning arrangements and intricate melodies.
