Moscow Drug Club played the Christmas bash on Dec 7th 2018

Local stuff

The Moscow Drug Club Is a curious musical place where certain elements of 1930's Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, Nuevo Tango & Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drink and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find the bar where Django Reinhardt & Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local Tziganes. Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits & Bertolt Brecht, Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating & intimate musical experience. You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of The Moscow Drug Club…..this way please & mind the stairs!

In the darkness of late winter, in a shady watering hole South of the river, in Bristol…
A singer from North America and a guitar player from England met to have a quiet drink. A good excuse to come in from the cold. Through the door walked an old friend who also happens to be a fantastic jazz trumpeter.
The three of them found themselves chatting about the swing music of the 1930's & 40's, German Cabaret Songs, and the Parisian songwriters of the 50's. An idea had started…
Not long after this fateful meeting, the three friends met a young classically trained accordionist from Poland, whose passion for French musette and Argentinian tango was infectious and inspiring. The four musicians started to create a small set of music derived from these ideas. Finally, long time comrade and exceptional double bassist Andy Crowdy was called in to complete the quintet, and Moscow Drug Club was formed.

Silver Street Band

What a fantastic evening, they were a brilliant band, the audience loved them, we had loads of fantastic food and an excellent quiz with lots of sweeties as prizes. What more could you want! As always we sold out well before the date so if you would like to come next year, book early.
