Halloween at the Magic Garden features a rocking selection of bands plus our best theme ever: Shaun of the Dawn of the Day of the Dead!!!
♬ Los Labios ♬
English singer Sammy Taylor discovered at age 30 that his father, Silvio, whom he never knew, had in fact been one of Spain’s first underground rock icons. Sammy decided to return to his roots in Southern Spain, where he had not been since he was 2 years old.
During a concert in Seville in 2014, Sammy met up with well renowned rock ‘n roll guitarist, Charlie Cepeda, and something clicked! It turns out that Charlie was the son of the legendary Sevillian guitar player, Carlos Cepeda, the leader of the underground rhythm and blues band “Entresuelos”, who had occasionally collaborated with Silvio. Silvio was often in the home of Charlie as he was growing up and so their meeting was truly serendipitous. Los Labios was born out of that connection and features the pair, both as frontmen and also as long lost brothers, together in what is now the new generation of rock ‘n roll.
Charlie then brought in the powerhouse rhythm section of Ricky Candela and Fernando Reina. With Nacho Sarria on rhythm guitar, the line-up of the band was complete.
The first year, they quickly entered the industry in Spain, where they were awarded Best Live Act & Best New Act 2015. This was followed by a tour in the U.S.A, Mexico, Colombia and the Bahamas including shows at the famous Whisky a Go Go in L.A.
It was at one of these shows that Lenny Kravitz discovered Los Labios and invited them into his private studio in the Bahamas, where they met with Craig Ross, who produced their first full album, ”Birthday”. Los Labios released the album “Birthday“ in March 2017 and have been touring in Spain and elsewhere during the year.
The bombshell-fronted, cajon-backed, accordion toting Barbarella’s Bang Bang bring their unique gypsy-latin-dance flavour to every stage they grace and bring on a party atmosphere with attitude, gratitude, delight and a potency that is totally exhilarating.
Influenced by Edith Piaf, Liza Minelli, Nina Simone, Italian Folk and the urban realities of the 21st Century, with a touch of deep and sensual mystery!
Brewing from the ever-growing South London scene, Sleaze capture the sound of frustration every man, woman and child feels towards our country's repulsive politicians, imploding economy and bacterial gastro-pubs.
This year's theme is Shaun of the Dawn of the Day the Dead! This means that you are free to take inspiration from movie classics like Shaun of the Dead and Day of the Dead, plus the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition - or who knows, maybe a crazy mashup of all 3!
