JORO are a 10-piece afrobeat band from London who formed in early 2016. The band is made up of experienced musicians who share a love of afrobeat and groove music. They mix the sounds of the legendary Fela Kuti with modern afrobeat to produce music you can’t help but dance to.
Reggae legend Glen Sloley has been in the music industry for 39 years with hits such as Lonely Soldier and All That Glitters Is Not Gold. Look out for his new album this summer.
Duo Ohke hail from south London and are known for their jazz inspired neo-soul duo while Victoria Wasley has a more folksy approach to songwriting.
Mazaika combine violin, accordion and voice. Their exciting performances offer emotional depth and musical subtlety.
Brockley’s The Four Fathers are literally a quartet of dads. They play politically charged rock and roots reggae.
Leslie Lewis-Walker specialises in acoustic guitar and piano with clever lyrics including a twist on Tracy Chapman.
Hummy Mummies is a fantastic child-friendly pop choir aimed at mums. There are several branches around SE London.
Thunk have roots in jazz and funk, with some influences of ska, reggae and South African music thrown in. Based in south-east London, this six-piece have an album and are kicking off their series of live shows with an appearance at Brockley Max.
Lewisham-based The True Believers specialise in Americana, country and what Gram Parsons called “cosmic American Music”. Their thoughtful and moving lyrics will have you dancing in the aisles and on the tiles.
One Harmony Radio, Brockley’s very own radio station will be spinning tunes in-between the acts as well as broadcasting live throughout the event so if you can’t make the Opening Night tune in to One Harmony Radio.
