Inside Croydon is delighted to be able to offer a pair of tickets to see Banter play at The Oval Tavern next Thursday, March 7.
Banter have just embarked on their first UK tour, delighting audiences from Sheringham to South Norwood with their eclectic music.
Although just three people, they create a huge sound and have been described as the world’s smallest big band.
Banter are: Simon Care on melodeon, Nina Zella on keyboards and vocals and Tim Walker on drums, percussion, brass and dance calling. They are rooted in English traditional music but incorporate influences of pop, jazz, soul and big band sounds.
Banter brings songs that are barking social comment with pop beats, irony and ridiculously danceable tunes!
Banter play The Oval Tavern from 7.30pm on Thursday, March 7. Tickets are £10, available now from www.wegottickets.com/theukulele . The Oval Tavern is at 131, Oval Road, Croydon. CR0 6BR.
But Inside Croydon Patrons can win a pair of tickets in this little musical brain-teaser.
