And for those of you still in the dark…

MISTY’S BIG ADVENTURE are an eight piece band from Birmingham. Their music is an eclectic mix of jazz, lounge, psychedelia, two tone, pop and punk.

A long time fixture on the Birmingham experimental music scene, Grandmaster Gareth formed the band in 1996 with his friend Sam Minnear. The name was taken from a story in the 1968 children’s book The Magic Roundabout Annual about a kitten, Misty, who meets a dog with whom she becomes friends.

Misty’s songs typically consist of Grandmaster Gareth singing in a deadpan, maudlin style accompanied by lively guitar, keyboards and brass players. They occasionally include samples and toy instruments in their songs.

Contrasting with Gareth’s dour lounge-singer act is the dancer Erotic Volvo. Dressed in a loose full-body red sack with numerous stuffed blue gloves attached, and his face painted blue, he dances continuously and in an exhaustingly frenetic manner, often moving around the audience. He occasionally also performs as a human beat box.

See you there! 🙂
