MC Xander

London’s MC Xander has been described as a ‘sonic shaman’. A rapper, mulit-vocalist and beatboxer, this innovative artist and globally renowned busker uses nothing more than a mic, a pedal controlled sampler, an FX box and his own vocal chords to record, loop and edit the beats, sounds and words. Exciting and exquisite.

OneTaste CHOIR

The OneTaste 
Choir, led by soul singer, Stac, perform close harmony a cappella songs at nearly every OneTaste event. The Choir have collaborated

with artists such as Alice Russell, Inua Ellams and many other OneTaste artists on special arrangements to add something magic to their music and spoken word. It's a special thing having 15 girls singing in together, and we think you members are going to love it.

Bane

‘Bane’ premiered at the Quay Arts, Isle of Wight in February 2009. It is a one-man show written and performed by Joe Bone. Bane follows the eponymous anti-hero as he goes about his business on the streets of pulp fiction. A parody of film genres and styles, Bane is a theatrical comedy where Joe creates the characters, the city and the world with just his body and no props. The show is sound tracked live by guitarist and multi instrumentalist Ben Roe, whose music works in tandem with the performance to great effect.
Since the premiere, ‘Bane’ has gone on to be a huge success, gaining a number of five star reviews as well as winning an Outstanding Theatre Award and gaining a nomination from The Stage for Best Solo Performance at the Edinburgh Fringe festival 2009.
