4th Aug – Tequila Chase

Formerly part of The Maze, these three very talented chaps are guaranteed to get everyone moving and signing along.  You can tell they’ve been playing together for quite a while; they are fun, relaxed performers, but also incredibly talented, which is a bit annoying to be honest! If that wasn’t enough they have excellent stage presence and the banter between the three of them mean that they’re even entertaining in between their songs.

“A superb 3-piece – bass, guitar and cajon, plus spot-on harmonies and a great choice of songs.  For a local band, they’re pretty damn good” ~ Me

4pm as usual

28th July – OpEn MiC

We love our open mics at The Cabin.  All ages and talents are welcome to perform – just add your name to the bottom of the list on the day and wait for your turn to knock out a few corkers.   We usually aim to begin at 4pm and, if needs be, we’ll carry on until closing time.

21st July – Crazy Little Daisy

Expect sing-a-longs, exceptional guitaring and stunning harmonies!  Come and check it out – CLD always put on a great show and the audience always call for more.  Music starts at 4pm.

7th July – Wilson & Cass

We never get tired of these two.  Superbly talented guitarist Tom Cass provides ripping solos and flawless riffs, while Paul Wilson belts out the vocals with truly awe inspiring power.  They cover a wide range of song and genres, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.  Get here early to secure a seat!

30th June – OPEN MIC

Usual set up.  All acts and ages welcome! Under 18s welcome until 8pm, so make sure you get down in the afternoon and put your name on the list and secure a slot.

We’ll be kicking things off from around 4pm.

23rd June – Robin Bibi & David Raphael

You want blues!? We’ll give you blues.  Bibi absolutely rocks it on the electric guitar and is quite the showman – he’s guaranteed to get you moving.  It’s not uncommon for people to get up and dance when he plays here.  Joining him this time will be Mr David Raphael (a.k.a. the Harpmeister), who is quite simply the best harmonica player I have ever seen live.

Bibi has quite the following, so it’s sure to be a busy afternoon with a great atmosphere.  Not to be missed!

16th June – OPEN MIC

Quite possibly our favourite Sundays at The Cabin.  We’re incredibly lucky to have so many talented performers in the area.  Come and show us what you got, or just come along to show your support.  All acts and ages welcome (kids welcome until 8pm).

If you want to play, stick your name on the white board when you arrive and wait for your turn to come around.

9th June – Jim Hammond

This guy is too cool.  His set includes 50s rock’n’roll, rockabilly, surf, R&B and more, all played expertly on guitar/piano and accompanied by catchy walking bass lines and raspy bluesy vocals that fit the sound so well.  If you’ve seen him before, you’ll know how good he is.  If you haven’t seen him then you owe it to yourselves to change this.  As always, music will kick off from 4pm.

Sunday 12th May – OPEN MIC

Usual set-up, my lovelies.  Come down and show off your talents.  All acts and ages welcome (under 18s welcome until 8pm).

Sunday 5th May – Wilson & Cass

A favourite at The Cabin – Amazingly strong lead vocals from Mr Wilson & perfect harmonies from Mr Cass, who will also be melting the fret board.  You’ve never seen an acoustic guitar shredded like it!

Great song choice and audience participation make Wilson & Cass a perfect show for a Sunday afternoon at The Cabin.

Sunday 14th April 4pmGrizzly and the Grasshoppers

Super cool 3 piece of keyboard, slide guitar and drums.  Check out the video below for a taster of what they’re capable of.  They’re new to The Cabin, but I have a feeling we’ll be asking them back.  They create a superb full sound with just the three of them; awesome raspy/bluesy vocals and perfect song choices make Grizzly and the Grasshoppers an unmissable act.  See you there!

Sunday 7th April 4pm – OPEN MIC!!

Seats go fast, so get down early!  If you would like to play then bring your equipment, or borrow our house guitar/piano and show us what you’re made of.  We welcome all talents and all ages (under 18s welcome until 8pm).

To put your name forward, just come down on the day and add your name to the list on the board and wait for your turn to come.  It’s fairly relaxed, but we usually ask that people stick to a handful of songs so that everyone gets a turn.

We’ve been extremely lucky with the level of talent so far, so music lovers come down to show you’re support too.

Sunday 31st March 4pm – Sunny & Blue

WOW!!! We heard great things about these two, but we were still absolutely blown away.  Some of the most wonderful harmonies we’ve ever heard here at The Cabin.  With incredibly beautiful covers of seriously good songs this guitar & keyboard duo set a perfect scene for a sunny Sunday afternoon.

They were so good, in fact, we’ve already booked them back in for 3rd Nov.

March 24th – The Castaways

Sunday 10th March 4pm – Bahama House

17th Feb 4pm – Crazy Little Daisy

What a fantastic duo!  The sound these two produce is just incredible considering they only have one guitar.  Expect harmonies that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and guitar skills that’ll tickle your ear buttons.

Sunday 24th Feb 4pm – Jim Hammond

Sunday Jan 13th – The Swamp Stomp String Band

Sunday 23rd Dec – 4pm

Christmas Open Mic – Let’s bring the Christmas spirit to open mic!  All things Christmassy please – Bonus points for anyone who nails a Mariah Carrey cover.

Sunday 16th Dec – 4pm

Bill Boazman, John Hedgecock & Richard Sadler – The word legend gets tossed around a lot, but Bill Boazman truly deserves the title.  He’s played with some of the blues greats (including B.B. King) and is one of the best guitarists I’ve ever seen live.  These guys were The Cabin’s very first act back in July 2017, so we thought we’d treat ourselves for Christmas and get them back.  Expect flawless acoustic roots and old-time country & blues that’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon.  Hope to see you all here.

Thursday 13th Dec – 8pm

Kodiak Island – They’re back! Local band Kodiak Island have some new material and The Cabin cannot wait to have them perform again.  They’re a touch of psych buried in upbeat folk, and the vocals are beautiful.  They’re growing popularity and radio play is testament to their talents so don’t miss out.  This is an EP launch so get here before 8pm as they’re only playing for about an hour.

N.B. This one’s on a Thursday!!

Tequila Chase – Another act that totally smashed it at open mic!  This three piece (guitar, bass and drums) have a great mix of covers that will get you all singing along.  These chaps are accomplished musicians (previously members of local band The Mays) and they play with apparent ease.  Their harmonies are spot on and their chemistry on stage reveals a real joy in what they play.  This’ll be a fun one, so don’t miss it.

Here are the boys in action…

Sunday 14th Oct – 4pm

Crazy Little Daisy – Something new to The Cabin; this talented male/female duo blew us away at one of our Open Mics, so we asked them back for their own gig.  These two bring incredible harmonies and awesome acoustic covers of songs you might not expect, e.g., Skunk Anancie’s “Weak” (trust me, they nailed it!).  Their vocal range and presence oozes natural talent, so don’t miss it!  Here they are in action…

Sunday 7th Oct – 4pm

Wilson & Cass – Guitar and vocal duo.  Wilson provides beautifully soulful and powerful vocals which are lifted by Cass’s perfect harmonies.  In addition to this, Cass melts the fret board with stunning solos and rocking guitar licks.  Anyone who has been to our open mics will remember their incredible talent.  These guys are a joy to watch and their passion for music is evident in their performance.  Not to be missed!!

Sunday 30th Sept – 4pm

Dave Peabody & Regina Mudrich – It’s an odd pairing, but man, does it work! The superbly talented Dave Peabody on blues guitar and vocals will be accompanied by the classically trained violinist Regina Mudrich.  They present songs like Going to Germany and Muddy Water with Mudrich replacing the original harmonica melodies.  Here’s them at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzrvUrzdzV0.

Sunday 16th Sept – 4pm

The Sepia Swing Show Twins – A well loved blues duo of the Cabin.  Nick Hyde has an incredibly soulful voice and is an accomplished guitarist, while Dave Raphael provides clean harmonies along with a masterclass in playing the harmonica.  Their superb sound harks back to old-time 30s blues and in between songs they’re sure to get laughs.  It’s always an entertaining show and we’re looking forward to hosting them again.

Sunday 9th Sept – 4pm

Sandtimer – A local four-piece folk rock band  who are starting to gain popularity on national UK radio.  They regularly perform on the UK acoustic circuit and have toured Canada and Europe.  It’s rare that we have a full band here at The Cabin, so make sure to get down to watch Sandtimer before they make the big-time and we can’t afford them anymore.

Open Mic – Usual set-up.  It’s always a fun day so come down and show off your talents.

Sunday 19th August – 4pm

Sunday 12th August – 4pm

Robin Bibi & Dave Raphael – Extremely accomplished guitarist, Robin Bibi (when I say accomplished, I mean he used to play in BB King’s support band!), will be joined by the Harpmeister himself Mr Dave Raphael.  These guys will get you up and moving so come along and be ready for a blues masterclass.

Sunday 5th August – 4pm

Open mic – You know the drill!  Bring your talent to the stage and show off to the rest of us.  Duos, groups and solo artists welcome.  Feel free to get up and jam as well.  We’ll be kicking things off at the usual time of 4pm.  Hope to see you there.
