Nipples of Venus are a high energy dance band that play 'Spiced up Funk/Salsa and Ska' instrumental arrangements of 1990's party Trance/Dance classics, adding cheeky live samples as a social commentary. The infectious eight piece band lights the touch paper on stage whilst the audience laps up their energy, converting it into 'dancing times!' Nipples of Venus has a motto, it's always Saturday night on their watch. Fronted by Phil Hopwood, the band will take you back to the dance tracks of the early 90s. The band's signature is loveable classics as interpreted through the medium of ska, funk and salsa. You've not lived until you've heard their version of Ace of Base's All That She Wants or Corona's Rhythm of the Night.
Cat Named Jack
Cat Named Jack is a high-energy collective from Edinburgh which took root in 2013 debuting with a fully developed sound mixing soul, funk, and blues standards with inspired original numbers. Featuring the silver-toned sounds of lead vocalist Kat Loer, the band consists of nine high-octave members. The rhythmic precision of drummer and all round percussionist Callum Macleod, combined with seasoned lead/rhythm guitarist Jamie Crerar and punchy bassist Jim Strange, form a backline fully loaded with fusion points. Meanwhile, the lusty licks from Dougal Burnett (Sax), Paul Melone (Trumpet), and Iain McConachie (Trombone) in the brass section, coupled with the digital delights from Olivia Errey (Keys) provide sharp-edged grooves alongside deep layers of musical sediment. We’ve also just been joined by our newest member Claire McCarthy accompanying Kat on lead vocals and harmonies.
Various musical elements merge in a special live show that leaves the boundaries of reality far behind. With their cheerful Folkloric melodies and driving rhythms Scotch guarantees a big feast in every occasion! The cynical lyrics combined with the frank voice of La Smellitia gets the tension on the stage sky high.
Scotch has always had its unique sound and obstinate theatrical interpretations. Some may describe the style of Scotch as Folk Rock, Theatric Punk, Balkan Ska or Celtic Baroque Rock. In the end, all will agree that you have to see a live show to meet the Scotch experience.
