A special double bill.
Mr wolf begins the night with a solo set of his masterful songs and voice. (for evidence listen to his amazing EP Arcadia St)
"What's the time?" I hear you say.....
Time then for Charlotte Craib and 'Black Santa' John Maddox with their charming Inner West Ricky Lee Jones meets gypsy Jaco pastorius in an alternate Steven Hawkings universe!
have a look at Charlie and Jonny on youTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtVpUEgTVnE

i've seen them playing around the hyde park fountain in the wee hours, busking on king street in the mornings, and opening a music festival.  They are Charlotte Craib (vocals) and John Maddox (Acoustic Bass, Kazoo, Percussion) - a very modern interpretation of depression instrumentation.  Maddox is a long-time member of Nadya's 101 Candles Orchestra, and is a legend on the Jazz / world music scene; Charlotte brings amazingly clever insights into standards from Ella Fitzgerald to Horace Silver and original songs, not always finished.

Barney Wakeford

Long-time collaborator of senor Maddox and one of the people responsible for all of the music we present, Barney presents original compositions (never the same way twice) and the songs of Vince Jones and Chet Baker

Charlie & the Maddox Factory

The cutest, quirkiest duet you've ever heard sing an Ella Fitzgerald song.  The vocal and instrumental improvisations of Charlie (vocals) and John Maddox (one-man orchestra) are a pleasure to watch - beautiful, funny, and unpredictable.
bio type thingy


Gareth J Malone's warm, melodic songs, backed by the subtle, richly arranged vocals and instruments of Nick Hoorweg (bass),  James Hauptmann (drums) and Charlie Meadows (guitar, The Shakers)
