Jamie Williams & the Roots Collective
Settled into the current super-tight line-up after hundreds of shows the band is on fire, playing their own style of Americana at festivals & venues including a couple of rapturous nights at London’s legendary 100 Club, their ethos is always to have fun and make sure the crowd does too. This is not a band that stands onstage staring at their (red) shoes.
They’ve shared line-ups with likes of Wilko Johnson, The Blockheads, The Darkness, The Pretty Things, The Quireboys, Dr Feelgood, the Yardbirds, Eddi Reeder & the Animals to name a few.
Jamie is a prolific writer of accessible songs; songs good enough to hold their own in a solo acoustic setting, which really light up when the band add their own brand of energy & musicianship to the arrangements.
They are like the classic touring bands of the 70s: almost a travelling circus; a dysfunctional family of a band. They‘re tight without being boringly slick; leaving just enough rough edges to become one of the most exciting and fun ’originals’ live bands on the circuit today.
The Sitar Service
The Sitar Service emerged in 2018 aiming to revisit popular themes of the late 60s & early 70s Rock and reimagine it in the style of Hindustani classical Ragas. The London-based group started as a col-laboration between drummer Anthony Paine, sitarist Rod Bourganos and singer/harmonium player Sameer Khan, united by their artistic and aesthetic affinities.
Bourganos initiated his Sitar studies at the age of 12 in Brazil and later took classes in Singapore with Maestro Shri Chandranath Bhattacharya, the 9th generation Sitar player of Senia Gharana. This gha-rana is believed to be the most researched school in Sitar and dates back to Ustaad Masit Sen of the 17th century, who is the 6th generation descendent to Miyan Tan Sen, the doyen of Indian classical music.
Similarly, from a very young age Hindustani classical music has been a part of Sameer Khan’s educa-tion – in particular, the Shaam Chaurasi Gharana. At the age of 16 Sameer underwent informal train-ing with Ustaad Shafqat Ali Khan and sat with him and his sons as part of a backing band. Later on, Sameer began formal training from Ustaad Shafqat Ali Khan’s older brother Ustaad Latafat Ali Khan - both sons of legendary singer Ustaad Salamat Ali Khan are the custodians of a six-hundred-year leg-acy of classical music from (modern-day) Pakistan.
The love for both Classic Rock music and Hindustani is what brought the pair together and along with virtuoso drummer Anthony Paine, the group kickstarted with a residency at Hackney‘s psyche-delic occult hip spot Helgi’s bar. Surprisingly, their 2nd gig took place at the Royal Opera House fol-lowed by events at the Handel & Hendrix Museum. Since then, The Sitar Service developed a cult fol-lowing in London‘s underground scene and that’s where their paths crossed with legendary psyche-delic musician Twink, celebrated for his work with bands like Tomorrow, The Pretty Things, The Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett’s Stars, and Hawkind.
PolSky was formed by Kris Warren, a songwriter and music producer whose career began under the wing of Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie. Paying close attention to production and writing techniques from the likes of Echo and the Bunnymen, Terry Hall, Nick Lowe and others, Kris began to formulate his own unique offering and during the noughties joined agit-pop group BiB on guitar, refining his stage craft on the London live circuit, culminating in a UK tour with The XX Teens, and an NME single of the week.
Halcyon Daze remix - The band made a special collaboration with Film & TV composer Christopher Nicholas Bangs (Apple TV, Netflix) aka ‘CNB’ who remixed Halcyon Daze into a futuristic electronic number, also enlisting the talents of Digital 3D Artists Nelly Kleijer and Zak Silver-Lennard in order to create an exceptional collaborative piece of Audio-Visual art.

LEWIS FLOYD HENRY
LEWIS FLOYD HENRY takes the rarified tradition of the one man band, street corner, blues music of Lone Cat Fuller to an almost burlesque stratospheric level – a one man, multi genre, sonic medicine show.
