5 Things- This Week in Staines


Check Out this New Band in Staines

So Long Cynical

So Long Cynical  Sep 4 2008      8:00P Hobgoblin     Staines

So Long Cynical are an up and coming five-piece from the busy Guildford scene. Consisting of Tom Keech (guitar) and Matt Truseler (bass) – who were both previously part of 4 Laps Behind and The Comanche Cipher – along with Christian Babbage (vox), Tommy C (drums), and the very recent addition to the band – Dom Roe (guitar). After Tom and Matt’s departure from hardcore act The Comanche Cipher they were looking to create a band with a much more light hearted and upbeat approach. They found their perfect partners in crime in old friends Christian and Tommy C, who shared the same drive and ambition to ignite their listeners with a refreshing relief from the “SCENE”. Together they strive to bring back melody and a positivity to the ever growing dark and depressing music scene. With powerful chorus’ come striking melodies, and creative breakdowns. They look set to inject some new excitement into the UK’s music scene.

Latin & Salsa Fun at Ascot

Riamba at Jagz

Riamba Saturday, 6th September
The Jagz Club & Restaurant, Ascot

With its flair for performing in a variety of settings and musicians from both world and jazz music backgrounds, Riamba is one of the sought after Salsa bands on the London scene today. Riamba came together in 1998 with the aim of performing traditional Cuban music in the Son style – the roots of Salsa. Drawing upon this style as its inspiration, the group set about creating a sound that combines the hot rhythms of Latin America with European harmony and the virtuosity of jazz. A combination that has resulted in a sound that energises musicians and dancers alike. Riamba is made up of some of London’s finest musicians who have studied in Europe, Argentina, Columbia and Cuba. Their careers have led them to perform with internationally acclaimed artists in such diverse venues as: Pizza on the Park, The 606 Club, The Royal Festival Hall (London); Blue Note Club (New York); The Sydney Festival (Australia) and The National Theatre (Ghana).
