Once And Future Band / Some Bodies / The Little Easy Band (Bham)




Birmingham Promoters presents:
Ages 14+ (14s to 16s must be accompanied by an adult)

Formed out of the primordial creative ooze of the San Francisco Bay Area, Oaklands Once and Future Band is Joel Robinow (keyboards, lead vocals), Raze Regal (guitar, vocals), Raj Ojha (drums, recording) and Eli Eckert (bass, vocals). For over a decade, Joel, Raj and Eli had worked together (in various combinations) with several bands and projects, including Drunk Horse and Howlin Rain. Throughout those years, they often spoke of forming an outlet into which they could combine their love of 60s and 70s psychedelic pop, jazz-rock, fusion and progressive rock, in addition to their myriad other musical fascinations.

In 2012 word finally became deed and Once & Future Band was born, taking inspiration for their name from T.H. Whites Arthurian classic. In 2014 they released the Brain EP on Mouth Records, drawing comparisons to ELO, Queen, Steely Dan, Yes and The Beach Boys. Not long after, they found a kindred musical comrade in Raze Regal after meeting outside an Oakland house party and soon enlisted him into the ranks.

Following on from the sultry and spaced out track Tired All the Time, Some Bodies return with the poignant TV Show that hits harder with an aggressive, krautrock-esque riff and smoky delivery. Starting to make some waves locally in Bristol, the band have recently opened up for FUR, Trudy & The Romance, Champagne Superchillin and Sugar Candy Mountain, played Liverpool Sound City and their first London shows including one for Huw Stephens at The Social and Radio Xs George Godfrey. Upcoming shows include a So Young all dayer and Once and Future Band support tour. Supporters to date include Radio X, Bristol In Stereo, BBC Introducing and more.

The Little Easy Band kicked off their career headlining a popular Worcestershire music festival in the summer of 2018. Shortly afterwards the band landed in the acclaimed Parr Street Studios in Liverpool to craft their first release Im So Tired. The soulful, authentic British R&B is reminiscent of late 60s & early 70s british rock infused with a strong Stax and Muscle Shoals influence, delivering a purposeful nod to the sound of the records that inspired the band.
