"...we went to a live music night and it was magical!"

ALEX FRANCIS
"An emotive melding of rock and soul"
Weds 5 July 2017

"...Alex's distinctive soulful/pop sound, with exquisite acoustic guitar work set against his charming, rasping vocals which radiate pure emotion." - I'm Music Mag

Now here's an exciting artist.

Things might well be kicking off for Alex Francis -- he's just recorded with Melanie C and supported her on a European tour, his debut EP has just landed, and this summer he'll be playing a bunch of festival stages across the UK -- but here's your chance to see him in an intimate setting.

This will be a stripped down acoustic set with two vocals and two guitars - it's sure to be special.

KADIJA KAMARA
Alternative soul
Weds 7 June 2017

"Kadija Kamara has soul"- Clash Mag

Kadija Kamara's music is 'alternative soul', a fusion of 60s and 70s sounds with retro soul and modern influences.

I saw Kadija perform recently and just had to invite her to the Wet Fish... Her voice is stunning, she's a consumate performer and her stripped down set at the Wet Fish is sure to be a treat.

She recently won the MTV Iggy Artist of the Week poll and has collaborated with the likes of Joey Negro, Zeb Bias, Husky and more.

Kadija will be performing a stripped down set as a trio - another unmissable music dinner.‍‍‍

THE SUGAR SISTERS
Vocal harmony trio
Weds 2 Aug 2017

"Just exceptional. These three girls are sunbeams... Dynamite!"

Harmonies and arrangements of 40s swing, 90s RnB and Calypso with a playful sassiness and infectious charm - this night is going to be fun!

LISA MARINI
Gypsy blues trio
Weds 17 May 2017

"A sultry voice and a unique presence"- Time Out

"Her self-penned songs are achingly melodic and artfully delivered, Lisa Marini is spell-binding and mesmerising"- Live Nation

We're so excited to have Lisa Marini back, she's a stunning performer with a captivating voice.   She silenced the room when she played at the cafe last year.

Lisa blends Blues with Gypsy and Latin to create her own unique, authenticly fresh sound.  It's also been described as dark folk with elements of jazz.  You decide!

She's sold out shows in The Jazz Cafe and Ronnie Scotts and has quite the reputation on the London scene;  Lisa is tipped as one to watch in 2017 by both Time Out Live and Live

Nation.Lisa performs with her Spanish guitar accompanied by Jack Tustin (double bass) and Arthur Newell (percussion).‍‍‍

ANDREW ASHONG
Soul rebel
Weds 30 Nov 2016

It's no wonder his track ‘Flowers’ won Gilles Peterson’s ‘Track of the Year’ at the Worldwide Awards.

I saw Andrew Ashong live recently and just had to invite him to the Wet Fish... He's a soulful, charismatic performer and his jam is compulsive listening and viewing. You're in for a treat.

"Andrew Ashong stands out. We haven’t had one of these for a while: a hazy, jazzy dreamer of a young soul rebel who in his music references Roy Ayers and Shuggie Otis, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye….It’s soul music for people who have been dismayed by most of the major developments in soul music of the last two, even three, decades."- Time Out

Andrew Ashong, the man countless music bloggers have been urging audiences to go and see will be giving his first performance at the Wet Fish. He'll be joined by 3 band members for an hour's acoustic bliss.

Come and get lost in the sound...

NATALIE DUNCAN
SOLO SHOW
Weds 12 Oct 2016

We keep asking her back for a reason... she's just astoundingly good.

Natalie returns for another quiet and intimate candlelit music dinner - solo, just her and her keyboard.

Bluesy, spellbinding... this is a journey any self-respecting music lover should not miss under any circumstances.   Sonic therapy.

Six sold-out shows so far, six audiences utterly entranced.

"An absolutely drop dead gorgeous vocal"- i-D

Check what‍‍‍ she has to say about her shows at the Wet Fish.

A highly regarded singer-songwriter, this is a rare opportunity to hear such a talent in an intimate setting.

"Intense and powerful" - MOJO

“Lush, expressive voice and ornate piano playing” – Daily Telegraph

“Dark, honest, prodigiously accomplished and quite beautiful” – Times

PARADISIA
Ethereal pop harmony trio
Weds 26 Sept 2016

An intimate candlelit music dinner with two shows by the stunning trio PARADISIA...

Formed less than a year ago, Paradisia have already supported the likes of Tom Jones, Carole King, Laura Mvula, Birdy...

PARADISIA are the three female members of The Night VI, Sophie-Rose, Anna, and Kristy. Their vocals are instantly recognisable to anyone who followed TN6, drawing comparisons to likes of London Grammar and Fleetwood Mac. Simply gorgeous.

PARADISIA grabbed attention quickly with their beautifully deconstructed cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark”. Unmissable.

PURDY
Pop Noir with jazz stylings...
Weds 31 Aug 2016

"So slinky it shouldn't be allowed" Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music

"Great character, unique voice, a true artist" Alan McGee, Creation Records

Purdy, aka Rebecca Poole, is fresh from releasing her debut album 'Diamond in the Dust' and supporting Jools Holland on his UK tour.

Her voice is deep and sultry and her sound is 'pop-noir' with jazz stylings. Imagine nuances of Nina Simone, Nancy Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Henry Mancini and Fleetworrd Mac. Irresistible.

She'll be backed up by guitar and double bass and this promises to be another unmissable music dinner at the Wet Fish.

SAM BROOKES
Solo show
Weds 17 Aug 2016

"Absolutely amazing" Ray Davies

Get ready for another sell-out music dinner with the captivating Sam Brookes - a second chance if you missed him last time.

Sublime voice, beautifully crafted songs. His shows at the Wet Fish have been superb.

Not your stereotypical ‘folk bard ‘ his love of singing and performing has been evolving since his days as a chorister, singing for the Queen at her private Chapel in Great Windsor Park; add to this his training as a gilder and Sam alre‍‍‍ady stands apart from his contemporaries.

Immaculate phrasing, beautifully modulated delivery... Check him out on Spotify, you'll soon have him on repeat.

Expect a quiet and intimate performance from an artist who's making quite a name for himself.
