We’re pleased to be able to offer two musical options for Museums at Night 2014: would your museum or gallery like to host a gig from Electric Soft Parade or Abi Wade?
Following the 10 year anniversary of Mercury Music Prize nominated debut album ‘Holes in the Wall’ and a European tour with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in 2012, The Electric Soft Parade recorded for the first time in six years and emerged with what is arguably their best album to date, IDIOTS. The band quickly started to reconnect with fans of old, doing sessions for Marc Riley, getting single of the week & album of the day on BBC Radio 6 Music and receiving rave reviews across the board for the new album.
The Electric Soft Parade are a 5 piece band and are happy to travel anywhere in the UK.
Abi Wade is a musical collaboration between limbs, strings and vocal chords. The cello is the backbone to her songs, however, the Brighton based musician is no ordinary solo act and uses her instrument in a unique way; using it as a percussive instrument; hitting it with sticks and beaters while plucking and bowing it, often simultaneously. In addition to playing the cello in this unconventional manner, she also sings and uses a cajon and tambourine on each foot to become the ultimate one woman band.
Abi performs solo, and is happy to travel anywhere in the South East or around Cambridge.
If your venue can provide a piano, that would be helpful but not essential.
