The Truronian: Live Music
Friday is funk and disco night, featuring Mr Deluxx with support from Tribo Groove.
Mr Deluxx is the head of a Truro-based party collective that promises nothing more than music that will make you want to dance. Expect a fun, nocturnal zoo of everything from techno and trance to hip-hop and house – fun dance music that simply lets you get your groove on.
The funk, reggae, hip-hop fusion of seven-piece Newquay band Tribo Groove will be the perfect party warm-up. The band have exploded onto the scene this year and have recently supported the one and only Ziggy Marley in Cornwall.
Saturday is an upbeat party night featuring the amazing sounds of Daytoner Live, supported by the Andy Quick Band and the uber cool band Hockeysmith.
Daytoner Live adds live musicians and singers to the mix to blur the boundaries between DJ set & live performance. Their exciting live show effortlessly twists classic vintage hooks and samples into new live remixes along with original floor fillers of their own to provide a totally unique, feel-good night. There’s been regular radio support for this Penzance-based crew from Craig Charles on BBC 6 Music & Radio 2.
Formed in a living room in 2016, the Andy Quick Band has toured extensively, produced three studio records and are a great live experience. Former Land of the Giants frontman Andy and the crew have a knack for crafting intense anthems that stick with you long after the show is over.
Hockeysmith live in caravan on a farm in Falmouth, where they write and record their darkly disorientating dance music. They emerged last summer and have since been busy performing at The Great Escape, Boardmasters, Thekla and Little Orchard Festival.
Sunday is a blues and jazz session with Russell Sinclair and the Smokin’ Locos, Smokey’s King Shufflers and the amazing vocal talent that is Rue with her band.
Russell Sinclair is a prodigious guitar talent with a deep knowledge and understanding of blues music. He’s backed by a Smokin’ Loco’s line-up that includes guitarist, drummer and saxophonist in a line-up that’s one of the South West’s top blues bands.
Support on Sunday comes in the form of hard-hitting Chicago blues from Smokey’s King Shufflers and upcoming singer-songwriter Rue who recently featured on BBC Spotlight and is a regular BBC Introducing artist. Rue has performed at major Festivals including Boardmasters, Tunes in the Dunes and Great Estate as well as supporting major international artists including James Arthur, Martha Reeve and the Vandellas and Newton Faulkner.
