CHARLIE STACEY BAND // LIVE MUSIC // SUNDAY LOUNGE // FREE ENTRY

At 23, Charlie Stacey is a jazz and pop pianist, composer and songwriter and already one of Britain's foremost pianists and composers so we're thrilled to be joined by Charlie and his band for this Spring Sunday evening in Hackney Wick. 

Gig starts at 8.45. DJ sets from Nicolas and Moggi before and after

Charlie Stacey is a pianist, keyboardist and composer who has made a name for himself on the London music scene as one of its freshest new talents. He has worked with projects from across the musical spectrum: from the traditional -jazz-meets-outer-space sound of Knoel Scott (Sun Ra Arkestra) to broken beat/grime influenced rhythms of Yussef Dayes' band, to his US-based psychedelic rock band Easy Baby, Stacey has an eclectic musical voice. Come down to Grow to hear him play some soulful, spiritual originals and have your ears expanded! Tom Driessler (Adele, Yussef Kamaal) on bass and Emmanuel Franklyn Adelabu (George Winstone Quartet) on drums.

TRANSATLANTIC FAMILY BAND // LIVE MUSIC // FREE ENTRY

FREE ENTRY

Transatlantic Band

Expect relentless rhythms, eastern drones, waves of celestial bass, blankets of swirling guitars and luscious melodies to cut the haze.

Formed in Brooklyn, New York, the band’s name was born of founder member Ben Clarke’s travels between New York & London, whilst writing and making music. It also serves as recognition that a band can be much like a family. The band is now based in London. TFB take influence from psychedelia, captured space sounds, the music of India, the East and rock n roll. Lyrics explore what we know about life, and what we don’t.
