The Fallen Heroes
8.30PM - 11.00PM
The Fallen Heroes Showcase Their Brand New Album, “A Brief Period Of Rejoicing”: Social album launch from this highly original New Orleans flavoured Jazz & Rhythm and Blues outfit whose funky playing style is infused with a current, more contemporary sound. Led by brothers Ben (Vocals & Double Bass) and Emile Martyn, (Drums and backing vocals) their musical career started in New Orleans leading to extensive contact with local legends such as George Lewis, John Handy and Harold Dejan of the world famous Olympia Brass Band. Returning to Europe they formed their own band playing New Orleans music but with a twist, writing original compositions in a funky New Orleans manner but playing in a more up to date, modern London style. This special show pays tribute to some of the more blues side of the King’s numbers.
