Purple Gecko Events present Billy Rowan aka The Undercover Hippy – 18th March 2015
Tickets £4 in advance direct from Penstowe Manor or £5 plus booking fee via seetickets / Tickethive, doors 7pm, support tbc:)
Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. After 7 years spent DJ’ing and MC’ing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy swapped the decks for a guitar and started out as a solo act in 2007. Although he still occasionally does solo gigs, he now usually plays with a full band, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, percussion and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Jason Mraz meets The Cat Empire…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Purple Gecko Events presents Mad Dog Mcrea live at Penstowe Manor Bude, Friday 27th March 2015, doors open 7pm, advance tickets £12 (plus booking fee) via seeticket)
Jiggery folkery, hokery pokery………… Mad Dog Mcrea raise hands, lift feet and start parties wherever they play with their spellbinding recipe of folk, pop, rock, jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. Whisking up whistles, fiddles and mandolins to collide in a spectacular explosion of infectious fun, they demand you to dance.
Thanks to three storming gigs at Glastonbury 2013 (notably the Avalon Stage), the release of their official video ‘Happy Bus’, regular radio play by esteemed folk such as Mike Harding, and in no small part the utter dedication of their huge fan base – momentum is definitely gathering pace.
Mad Dog Mcrea’s name is firmly established on the live music scene, and they are in huge demand from festivals, live music venues and traffic wardens across the country.
They were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2012 South West Music Awards, and in the same awards in 2011 their last album ‘The Whirling Dervish’ scooped ‘Best Album of the Year’. A much-anticipated live studio album is underway, due for release later this year.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
The Mad Dog Mcrea line up:
Michael Mathieson – guitar/vocals
Dan Crimp – whistles & flutes
Graham Anderson – banjo/mandolin
Nicky Powell – fiddle
Jimi Galvin – bass
Pete Chart – drums

Purple Gecko Events presents Tankus The Henge!! – 15th May 2015
Tickets £6 advance via Seetickets or Tickethive, £8 door, doors open 7pm:))
The world of Tankus the Henge is uplifting and wild, dark and heartfelt.
A six piece powerhouse of a band drawing visual and musical influences from old time Fairgrounds to modern day Circus; The Beatles to Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello to Radiohead, they embody a look and a sound that lies somewhere between their South East London home and the carnival town of New Orleans.
With their charismatic frontman, Jaz Delorean, looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film and the pump and grind of the Tankus the Henge sound generating a groove that makes it impossible to stand still, their live show ebbs and flows like a small boat on a turbulent sea.
Any other band who billed themselves as “the most fantastic band in the world” would rightly quake in their boots at having to live up to such fanfare. Tankus the Henge defy you to contradict them!
