One Man Electro Blues - Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody. Funke and the Two Tone Baby is taking fat beats, driving bass lines and blues-tinged electronics out of the fields and bringing the festival inside. Simultaneously playing 6 instruments though a mind-bending array of effects and loops, Funke isn't your average one-man and a loop pedal. He's a 5-piece band exploding out of one guy. A wall of sound thrown from the speakers. A tsunami in a trilby!
Welcome to The Marrs Bar, Worcesters’ finest live music venue.
If you are in Worcester, looking for a great night out – fancy watching some top quality live music – then The Marrs Bar is the only place to be
Situated in the city centre of historic Worcester, this former dance studio still has the original sprung dance floors put in place back in 1958. After an extensive 14 month renovation/conversion we have ended up with a venue that musicians have designed with the musician in mind, so bands really enjoy themselves when they play here – and as a result, always give a better performance. We have a 5k in house sound system, in house lighting rig and in house sound engineers.
Every Wednesday is Jam Night at The Marrs Bar. We have a full range of instruments set up for you to play so if you are a guitarist, bass player, keyboard player, singer or drummer you can just turn up and play. You are welcome to bring your own instrument along too if you’d prefer. There is also a DI box set up for the unexpected double bass or an acoustic guitar or whatever.
From 9pm is the acoustic hour, open to all singer songwriters to get up and try a couple of numbers.
After 10, the house band hosted by Vince Ballard get up, fancy playing with these boys? Then just make yourself know to Vince, fancy getting up with your own band? Anything goes. Best of all, it’s free entry all night!
