No matter what day of the week they come to town, every night is a Saturday night when The Urban Voodoo Machine hit the stage. A spectacular mash up of musical genres, instruments and carnival chaos on stage, they bring to the party everything we love about a live rock 'n' roll show. Without doubt they are one of the best bands on the UK live circuit right now, you should never miss the chance to check them out !!!

The Urban Voodoo Machine is a collective of shadowy, London based, ne’er do wells, led by Norwegian born songwriter/frontman Paul-Ronney Angel. Featuring up to twelve musicians at any given time, The ‘Machine mash-up guitars, twin drumers, fiddle, trumpet, tuba, banjo, washboard, upright bass, gong, mandolin, accordion, harmonicas, saxophone, sousaphone and even empty bottles and tie racks to create their unique brand of Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll.

“With their lurching sea shanties, debauched murder ballads, messed-up tangos and whiskey-soaked gypsy stomps, some reckon they’re from the same stable of stallions as Tom Waits and Nick Cave; others point out the last gang in town swagger of The Clash and the hellbound blues that John Lee Hooker first dragged out of the swamp”

The stars were very much aligned the night Paul-Ronney Angel was begged by a promoter to be the filling in a triple-bill band sandwich. Never one to turn down a knees-up, P-R realised he had 48 hours to put a band together. No problem! Trawling the dives and doss houses of London, he called in some favours, cracked some whips and so it was that The Urban Voodoo Machine lurched into life.

Having been a fantastic success for our 2015/16 Xmas parties, we have got them back again to celebrate Christmas 2017

Bubamara play a menagerie of folk-punk exotica. Fagin meets Abba, Sicilian skiffle, Cossack ska, and songs from the hash houses of Greece. This is music at its ingenious best.
