Whitehall Parade & guests - NosDa Hostel & Bar - Cardiff

Live from a galaxy just the other side of the river... and celebrating Star Wars Day in association with Cardiff Mini Con... it’s Whitehall Parade!! Special guests to be announced soon... save the date! Whitehall ParadeWHITEHALL PARADE - Seven piece rootsy folk rock band based in Cardiff (formerly known as The James Clode Band). The band is based in Cardiff but to date (2015) has recently performed at a number of venues, events and festivals across the UK including the Watchet Music Festival, C2C Country-to-Country Festival and the Welsh Perry & Cider Festival at Caldicot Castle. Our music is a combination of up-beat, foot stomping tunes and softer, more folk-orientated melodies.The Kinky WizzardsThe Kinky Wizzards are one of the most audacious, exciting and fun instrumental rock jazz bands to have exploded in the music scene. The Welsh trio, comprising of bassist Mathew ‘Miffy’ Griffiths, drummer Jonathan ‘Jiffy’ Griffiths and guitarist Ryan Elliott offer an unforgettable pyrotechnical kinky display of musical wizardry where you can expect anything from flying drum sticks to slapped bass to indulgent yet infectious guitar solos, all packaged in ludicrous song titles such as ‘Door Dancing Penny Collector’ and ‘Stomp Foot Syndrome’.Since releasing their debut album ‘Tasting Toadstools’ of predominantly bass and drums, the band has sold records worldwide and has already garnered a solid reputation, having played the London drum show to an audience including Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, been featured on DrumTalk TV and opened for Frank Zappa’s band members, The Mothers of Invention. The band has also endorsed and demoed gear for worldwide manufacturers Mapex and Seymour Duncan.The band released their sophomore record ‘Quirky Musings’ in March of 2017, introducing Elliott’s writing to the catalogue. The record has sold internationally and has been praised by fans and critics alike for the instrumental prowess on display from the trio, as well the playful interplay, grooviness and sense of fun. All of which is showcased in their live performances.The Kinky Wizzards are three extremely dedicated musicians who set out to push musical boundaries whilst always holding their notorious sense of humorous wit that will thrill any lover of instrumental music.The James Davies Trio,Made up of ‘Miffy griffiths (Bass) and Jiffy Griffiths (Drums) from the ‘Kinky Wizzards’ offer a solid experienced backline to the talented James Davies from ‘Wynt’ (Vocals and Electric/Acoustic guitar).All 3 of these boys have spent years working with different artists each building a well-known portfolio platform for themselves.James has a long catalogue of original material that the brothers wanted to help push, also expanding and creating the ‘James Davies Trio’ and alternatively pushing them into new territory.It’s only the beginning of something that could have great potential.King CeruleanKing Cerulean is an accoustic covers band from Cardiff, UK!ThewardensoundThe Warden creates music of the coast and the mountains, bringing old lines into new songs.
