Oh! Gunquit are bringing their energetic sound to The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on January 20th for a show with the Mirage Men, Archive 45 and DJ Jason Webster. The London-based 5-piece will be bringing their "rumble pop" sound and playing songs from their 2017 album Lighting Likes Me.
The band had its early beginnings in 2010, when lead singer and trumpeter Tina Swasey and guitarist Simon Wild became neighbours. Since then they've added a few more to the line up with Chuchi Malapersona on saxophone, Veronica Arcila on bass and Alex De Renzi on drums. It's a multicultural mix, with members from the UK, Colombia, Italy, Spain and the USA.
Tickets are £10 and can be purchased online from the Wedgewood Rooms website. Doors open at 8pm. The Wedgewood Rooms are located at 47b Albert Rd, Portsmouth, about 23 miles from Southampton.
Dressed in shiny pharaoh costumes and with a solid bass line, the Mirage Men describe their sound as 'Authentic Ancient Egyptian Surf Music.' Take from that what you will, but their music is certainly good to boogie to.
Archive 45 Archive 45 are a local Portsmouth punk band. They embrace the punk sound from the late 70s to early 80s and its almost like stepping back in time.
