Scurravagus and Gods of the Underworld
This is a double bill event as part of the ‘Sound of Sundays’ series.
What does a singer songwriter do when they get lonely? They form a band.
A night of musical contrasts. Scurravagus and Gods of the Underworld; two bands united by a passion to create original music of the highest calibre. One semi-acoustic, the other electric, both with jazz-influenced rhythm sections.
Scurravagus are Rob Widdicombe on vocals and guitar, Chris Gardner on piano and organ, Josh Williams-Ward on drums (all of whom will be familiar to a BLT audience), Nassima Amir on vocals and flute, and Mick O’Connor on double bass. How to describe the music? Folk? Jazz? Prog? Pop? Scurravagus incorporates elements of all of these and more in their songs of life and death, love and loss, passion and obsession.
Gods of the Underworld take their name in celebration of all those musicians who beaver away at the grass roots. Rob Bartlitz is a classically-trained musician who has been active on the local music scene for years, most notably at The Icarus Club. He is joined by Kaveh Ghandizadeh on bass and Carl Amos on drums. Collectively, their influences range from classic rock to jazz, hip-hop, and funk.
