OKTOBERFEST NIGHT 5 :
MELTYBRAINS? / CIRCUS VIII / MIK PYRO & THE SHOGUNZ OF STANK / Echo
Circus Viii are the UK’s answer to Snarky Puppy, they are a new and exciting genre-defying collective of some of the finest session musicians London has to offer, the musicians in this band have played with Jamiroqai, Odyssey, to name but a few.
Too eclectic to pin down, but rooted firmly in rock & funk grooves, get ready to shake your booty. As if it weren’t good enough Circus Viii will be joined be Irish music legend Mik Pyro ! He will be singing a couple of their songs as well as some Republic Of Loose classics.
Meltybrains? was born with the recording of a number of electronic vocal-based songs, taking ‘lyrics’ from household objects such as bills, cigarette packets and deodorant cans. From the word go this was a band who did things differently.
Since their first appearances back in Dublin 2012, Meltybrains? have garnered a strong reputation for their unabashed creativity, picking up a loyal following that has helped them sell out shows across Ireland, the UK and the US. The band has also enjoyed great success playing at major music festivals including SXSW and Electric Picnic.
Meltybrains? live shows have always been a major part of the band’s appeal, and have gained rave reviews.
“Meltybrains? are a heady band, combining outfits, masks, a lot of musical knowledge and a lot of mischief to make something that is hard to describe.” – Nialler9
“These fantastic performers put on a stunning live show and have carved out a very particular visual image. Their show is – I don’t say this lightly – unlikely to compare to anything you’ve seen or heard before.” – The Huffington Post
“The members of Meltybrains? might be classically trained musicians, but their music is indefinable, their fans look like cult members and their live shows are bewildering” – The Irish Times
MIK PYRO & THE SHOGUNZ OF STANK
Fronted by the legendary frontman of Republic Of Loose Mik Pyro & the infinitely cool of cool Pete Pamf this is an outfit of absolute groove lords.
Shogunz Of Stank play funky, groovy, genre bending, reality – defying bangers.
Echo is the music of Wicklow based musician and producer Eoin Whitfield. A techy blend of danceable funk and rock
