Alright, it’s been long enough now. We’re back with a new format on a different night. Open mic and four acts for a fiver, same old Upbeat vibes with 100% more free tequila.

Mike Dennis

Violinist. Rapper. Looper touring his new release Junction 19 throughout May.

Performing using Jess (violin), a loop pedal and a cajon, Mike builds up layers of dense harmony and embellishes with thoughtful, energetic rhymes drawing inspiration from daily British life and the perils and profits of love with a geeky fanaticism for rhythm-bending and syncopation.

«Violin in hand and a multitude of effects and loop pedals at his feet, he builds up to a string and percussion crescendo before opening his mouth and… wow! This guy doesn’t just spit rhymes, they just cascade out at a speed that is as ferocious as his lyrics.» — Wake The Deaf (Ben Gallivan)

In 2016, Mike released «Smiles & Cries» on his own label, D-Funk Records. The single, «Stuff» was picked up as Tom Robinson's 6Music Recommends track in March 2016.

Robbie Cornell and the Whiskey Six

Campfire tales of gun-toting moonshiners and limbo saloons told in a world-weary whiskey-soaked folky bluegrass style on double bass, banjo and harmonica.

Alice Walker

She’s not played these ways for ages! Probably for good reason. Don't encourage her too much, but she is bloody amazing.

"..Either as full band or solo acoustic act, pianist Alice Walker’s performances are witty, wordy affairs most will testify are spellbinding. Presenting with an odd mixture of mesmerizing talent, easy stage presence and complete lack of pretension, it’s hard to see quite why she’s not wildly famous by now..”

Tom Walker

He’s played way too much these ways for ages. For no good reason. He’s doing a new loop and live instruments thing, Hopefully he’s practiced.
