Welcome to the summer Surf' Up Cabaret night at Small World Theatre on Friday 11 July, 7.30pm. Experience a seamless blend of entertainment and cool wave-riding music with The Bikini Beach Band, an hilarious dash of on-screen theatre from the Sinkoplaters and your host with the most, Beyond Compere. Add fantastic food by Our Two Acres and you have the perfect July night out!
The Bikini Beach Band hail from East London and have an unusual take on Surf guitar music (they call it ‘Surf-Noir’) which has it’s roots in the late 50’s/ early 60’s inspired by bands like The Ventures and The Shadows. BBB mix classic surf numbers such as ‘Wipe Out’ and ‘Miserlou’, and contemporary pop songs like ‘Blue Monday’ and ‘Toxic’ with expert musicianship and a great sense of showmanship. While supporting Pulp (by special request) in their heyday, Jarvis Cocker admitted he preferred BBB’s version of ‘Babies’ to Pulp’s own and NME called them ‘London’s Kings of Surf-Noir’.
The Bikini Beach Band are a wicked combination of wild costumes, great set moves and fantastic Rock ‘n’ Roll delivered absolutely deadpan… Also, firm festival favourites (Big Chill, Bestival, Glastonbury, Latitude, Lovebox, Lost Vagueness, Solfest) these boys cast a ray of sunshine whatever the weather.
Order a delicious supper ahead (a mix of smokey, spicy and salsa dishes) and get with the vibe. Go totally tubular in your best Hawaiin shirt, Bondi flip-flops and Whitesands Bay baggies because this will be a fascinating evening with guaranteed laughter, dancing and singing along. Tickets £10 from smallworld.org.uk.
