Local promoters, Wandering Oak presents the riotous and dynamic Ponyland at Star & Shadow, Newcastle on Saturday 15th April. The night promises to deliver the masked musical mob’s signature combination of raw energy and addictive beats to keep you dancing throughout the night.

A kaleidoscope of influences from samba reggae to Afro-beat and jazz, Ponyland’s unique blend of musical influences is the tonic we all need in difficult times. Starting life in Newcastle, the seven-piece is made up of some of the North East’s most respected jazz musicians, including John Pope (bass), Faye McCalman (saxophone), Frankie O’Keeffe (vocals), Jordie Cooke (guitar), Geoff Bartholomew (trumpet), Adam Stapleford and Dave McKeague (drums).

Supported Ponyland is brass party band Dilutey Juice, who take inspiration from a plethora of influences, from the fast hypnotic rhythms of Afro-beat to the intense euphoria of 90’s dance music.

Ponyland are on at Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle on Saturday 15th April.
