February Live Events at Moonbows

Details of February live events at Moonbows below. All events are Free.

Sunday 10th February LONG LOST SON
Inspired by the dark Pennine landscape of their small Northern hometown, Long Lost Son present their hushed, tense and heartfelt sound that draws on the influences of Dram Parsons, Nick Drake and Cave.

Tuesday 12th February AMY MAY
A Cornish singer songwriter, Amy is making waves in the west country after the release of her debut album. Part of her UKtour, this may be the only time you will get to see this rising star in an intimate venue.

Thursday 14th February CHEESENIGHT
Valentine is the cheesiest night of the year so we are going to celebrate with a night of cheese. Cheesy music, cheesy cheese and lots of lonely single people eating cheese. Not one of our normal evening's but better than watching longing lovers staring at each other all night. Smart Dress (sort of) required.

Friday 15th February
DJ SAFFOLLA.featJAVIERORTAGA- MagicalMusicalMysterynight
Our own local Ninja Tunes DJ will be performing his usual magic on the decks while Javier Ortaga will be performing real magic at your table.

Sunday 17th February LITTLEG WEEVIL
This London born Memphis Blues songwriter reminds Jake of the many nights in dingy backstreet clubs of New York during the 90s. 'Little white boy with a black soul! Fantastic!' WADIRadio, Memphis, TN, 2005.

Monday 18th February POETRY NIGHT
This follows on from the huge success of January's evening that saw stunning performances by all involved. We are going to repeat the night with Peter Searls our MC, Augusto Monk with Jazz, stories and visuals, and our array of published and open mic poets. Take the stage yourself and perform your own favourite poem.

Thursday 21st IM
IM play a kind of ambient electronic groovy improvised jazz stew. Combining electric trumpet with Hammond organ, percussion, old analog synth sounds and home-made instruments, they explore sound and texture in a new and refreshing way. The sound of IM reminds Jake of the French trumpet player, Erik Truffaz.

Sunday 24th DJ NOVA
A Moonbow favourite, DJ Nova will take us on her musical journey from Jazz to Punk.

Tuesday 26th ORCHARD HILL
One of South East London's youngest and hottest new indie prospects. Orchard Hill are gathering a momentum that could propel them to the very top - come and see what all the fuss in about!

Thursday 28th FILM NIGHT
Declan McGill is back with a selection of high quality short films made by people living around South East London with Jazz singer, Hannah Northedge providing us with some classic film songs during the popcorn intervals. To submit your film please send URLlink to

Earl Green has won the best voice in the no less than four times in the past decade. Close to 400 people heard why during the Brockley Max festival last June and now he is returning with his band, The Right Time, to give Brockley the opportunity to hear one of Britain's premier Blues singer's.
