We love surprise gigs! On Wednesday afternoon we had an invitation to play at the Brighton Fringe 2017 registration opening party at Merkaba. The act that was due to play had had to cancel due to the train strikes and they asked us VERY late notice (around 3 hours!). We had never been to the cocktail bar Merkaba before so we were impressed by the stylish almost space-ship styling inside (as well as their INCREDIBLE cocktails which included a specially designed 'Fringe' cocktail).
Despite some technical issues with the PA we were meant to be using we played a short set after the Mayor, Councillor Pete West, and Director of the Brighton Fringe Julian Caddy made introductions and gave a short speech about the Fringe. Crowd favourites 'Silence of the Chickens' and 'Jenny Dang the Weaver' got some feet stamping! The fish definitely enjoyed our performance (yes... fish in a bar).
We can't wait for Fringe 2017!!
