DOWN IN THE BASEMENT is a monthly Saturday night of rockin’ country, blues, alt/indie folk and rock’n’roll in The Harrison basement. Three live bands each night, the basement bar will be open, the stereo will be loud and the chairs will be cleared away so get yer dancin’ shoes on!

Led by former Obscuritones singer Gabriella Romano, Ella and the Blisters are fast emerging as one of the most exciting new bands on the thriving London roots scene. Fusing gypsy jazz, rockabilly and swinging’ country into a fantastically catchy whole, the band combine fiddle, accordion. guitar, bass, drums, ukulele and percussion to make for a wonderfully joyous roots stew. A great Saturday night band, guaranteed to warm your heart and move your feet!


Dana Immanuel is a North London banjo-toting, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing no-prisoners-taking singer-songwriter. She and her super-heavy folk-blues all girl Stolen Band make a sound straight out of the American bayou, triple filtered through bourbon, washboard, and a touch of alt-country attitude.



Favourites of Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 and Radio 6, and Gary Crowley on GLR, six piece Lazy Heart Parade play anthemic indie folk with a nod to Neutral Milk Hotel and Arcade Fire, combining ukelele, violin and mandolin with a modern indie rock electric edge and attitude. Whipsmart lyrics and superbly catchy hooks backed by excellent musicianship make for a splendid Saturday night act.
