Line-up /Levellers (dj set)
Live - 3 Daft Monkeys
On the night you will have the chance to see the band behind the decks as the party features an exclusive Levellers DJ Set. With their extensive musical knowledge and the respect and passion for their peers and artists that they have had the opportunity to work with and both inspire and be inspired by, this will be a DJ set that we have no doubt will go down in Jamm folklore!
The Levellers have been an amazing contributor to the music scene for over 20 years producing an array of great albums and playing live across the globe. They have built up a strong and loyal fanbase with their signature punk folk sound and outspoken voice on political and social issues. Levelling The Land was the bands second album released back in 1991 and was a massive success turning gold. When the announcement came out that the band were to embark on an extensive tour of this album in its entirety during 2011, dates were immediately sold out, highlighting the importance of the album and how this music is still held dear to those who discovered it in 1991, or even since.
In addition, 3 Daft Monkeys will be performing live on the night. This Cornish three piece are world/folk music acoustic band, who in addition to studio albums, seem to tour tirelessly and as a result, have drawn in a large and extremely devoted fan base. Recently the band has appeared on two of the larger Glastonbury stages, Glade and Avalon, pulling crowds well into their thousands, and headlined Folkwoods festival in Holland. This band is the perfect addition to accompany the Levellers on what will be a special night.
Absent Kelly will provide the rest of the live line up in the Live Room. With both ears firmly pressed to the live music arena floor, Absent Kelly will be offering several of London’s most exciting and talked about bands to the night. In the Front Room, expect an eclectic mix of foot-stomping, hip-swinging favourites from Davey and his friends, plus a live corner featuring a raggle-taggle band of wandering minstrels who will happily hand over the mic and guitar to anyone with a song in their heart and a smile on their face.
There is no doubt that if you were not lucky enough to purchase your ticket for the live show, this will go some way to ease the pain. It goes without saying that having the opportunity to witness the Levellers up close and personal as they offer their musical soul to the dance floor, will be something that all attending will certainly not forget. Get involved!
