Stramash - The Banjo Lounge 4The Banjo Lounge 4

Onstage: 12:30am

The Banjo Lounge 4 are an Edinburgh-based all acoustic crate digging mash-ups band delivering classics in an original and imaginative packaging. Once described as ‘Hayseed Dixie on speed with a serious chunk of Funk!’, they have been making fans wherever they play. Since their inception in 2007, their shows have included many gigs up and down the country and beyond including festivals, awards ceremonies for Theatre Scotland, the 2014 Ryder Cup end party, Edinburgh Film Festival wrap parties, Edinburgh Book Festival 2013 launch party, gigs for Visit Scotland, Fynefest, List Magazine's annual Festival Party, Club Vegas and The World Famous Speigeltent along with over 400 other shows from the old Marquee Club in Soho, London, to a cocktail boat on Loch Lomond and a pool party in Ibiza! They even played a private gig for the cast of BBC's Eastenders!

With 5 string banjo, acoustic guitar, double bass and stripped down drum-kit, the band also features 3 part harmonies. Some really do say that their bluegrass-funk interpretations are better than the originals. Their eclectic and diverse blend of mash-ups include tunes by Louis Prima, Radiohead, Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Metalica, Panjabi MC’s Knightrider remix of ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’, a bluegrass souped version of Dizzy Rascal’s ‘Dance Wiv Me’, New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain, Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love', a high octane version of Duran Duran’s ‘Girls on Film’, a stylophone-powered version of The Final Countdown, The Beastie Boys’ ‘Intergalactic’, Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’, and Nelly’s bluegrass-ed ‘Hot In Herre’. Check our 'Repertoire' Menu for full listings! We are also currently recording our first album - probably to be titled 'The Band That TIme Forgot'.
