You are invited to join the Governor, Mr Paul Jackson to celebrate his Birthday on Friday 8th May with a very special evening of entertainment at The New Adelphi Club. We welcome the astononishing and totally unique Thomas Truax.
“There’s a fine line between the unique and the insane, and it’s a line which Thomas Truax (pronounced troo-aks) straddles with his chin held high and ‘ The Hornicator ‘ firmly glued to his left ear. His collection of home made instruments look as though plucked straight from the mind of Tim Burton and are combined with loop pedals, guitars and lashings of imagination to create one of the most unusual and entertaining live shows you will ever see.”Splendid magazine calls him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.”
“When he performs, it is a spectacle – the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal.”
Supporting Thomas Truax is Frogbelly & Symphony. Frogbelly and Symphony are born of the clash and fusion that characterized the late 20th century. Disparate influences from the Old World to New York are brought together in the furnaces of Sheffield and Brooklyn, revealing a stylistic repertoire that injects the indigenous workingman’s soul into the periphery of the bohemian metropolis. Academically trained in traditional instrument playing and constantly experimenting with production techniques, the band systematically processes every imaginable acoustic influence.
Expect the birthday cake to be doing the rounds and a few cheeky surprises. Would be great to see you.
