Line Up

Shaun Clark

A welcome return appearance for Shaun. A solo acoustic singer/songwriter. Inspired bands such as The Levellers, Gaz Brookfield as well as many more, Shaun will round off the night, leaving you with a smile on your face.

Broken Colours

Paul C from Luton Lives really rates this band...and he's got a good ear for a great music. This is a chance to hear an exciting band stripped back to their acoustic sound.

With a dynamic sound that merges indie, funk, and rock influences, Broken Colours captivate audiences with their refreshing musical approach. Since their formation in 2013, the band has achieved significant acclaim, winning London's prestigious 'Be On The Scene' contest and receiving chart success with their self-titled E.P.

Known for their energetic live performances, Broken Colours has embarked on extensive tours across the UK, Italy, and Denmark, captivating audiences with their infectious stage presence. The band has also shared stages with legendary artists such as Feeder, Carl Barat, The Feeling, and The Blockheads.

Ed Smith

Ed is a Luton legend. Born in Luton in 1977 at the height of the punk era, and has lived in the Town since then, apart from a few years at the turn of the millennium where he lived the life of a penniless artist in Paris France. His claim to fame is being the designer of the Luton Town FC matchday programme.

During the 1990s Ed was part of the alternative rock triplet 'The Dean Browns' who were once described by Steve Lamack as Britain's answer to the American Rock Invasion. Allegedly. The Dean Browns morphed into 'The Dead on Holiday', who continued to confound audiences in London, Luton, Milton Keynes and the home counties. 

Ed now performs solo - his song writing taking influence from a life lived in Luton. Musically, he's inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Ryan Adams and Elliott Smith - heart felt, sometimes dark and melancholic.

Robbie Herrick

Born and bred in Luton and playing in the surrounding towns for the last few years Robbie blends country, pop, and romance into his unique and emotive style. He creates music that tugs at the heartstrings. With influences ranging from Stereophonics right through to Nashville, Robbie's material is stirring and poignant, delivered with a no-nonsense style and a dose of cheeky charm.
