Southend Who presents: Cisco In The Aquarium + Friends, a celebration of the old school Southend Ska Punk Scene!

 

On Friday January 5th 2018, Southend Who is proudly presenting an evening of Southend ska-punk to celebrate an era that was positively thriving in the early noughties!

Ska punk shows were a regular occurrence at Chinnerys back in 2000-2003, so we decided to get 3 of the best ska-punk legends back together as well as an appearance from one of the biggest characters from the scene for one night only at Chinnerys on Friday 5th January 2018. Here’s why we’re so excited!

The ska pop princes back in the day, Cisco In The Aquarium were famous for their raucous live shows. Their loyal following were left heartbroken when they disbanded in 2005 when frontman James Kelleway moved to America. After a one off reunion show back in 2010, they’ve decided to have one last party at Chinnerys!
They were just kids when their legendary songs like ‘Tiffy Got A Texty‘ and ‘Flamin’ Nutcase‘ captured the hearts of the Southend music scene. Now they’re all grown up with a mission statement to get Southend skanking one last time!

Introducing Pocket Dragon – Fabulous Fusion Funk/Soul Coming Your Way!

Joining the bill for our first Southend Who Presents show is the utterly wonderful Pocket Dragon.

This is one hell of a slick operation. The neo-soul jazz fusion is one of the most uplifting things you’ll hear this year. Astonishing musicality, Emma Barney’s stirring voice positively soars over the tight delight of the rhythm section. It’s simply glorious.
