The Marrs Bar, Worcester

About The Marrs Bar

One of Worcesters premier music venues. Live music at least four nights a week, usually more. Various promoters and club nights.
Musicians have designed the venue so bands really enjoy themselves when they play and as a result give a better performance. Formerly a dance studio since 1958 , the original sprung dance floors are still in place adding a woody texture to the sound quality of the room.

'Political, intense, angular and beautiful' Colin Murray, BBC Radio 1
'Nizlopi involved the crowd like no other. If you didn't get stuck in with at least one harmony then you looked odd.' The Sun
'Everything I know about live performance I learned from them' Ed Sheeran (ex-roadie to Nizlopi)

Nizlopi are John Parker (double bass/beat box) and Luke Concannon (vocals/guitar), a duo who sound like a four piece, folk hip-hop band.
They are most widely known, for being the underground, independent act that topped the UK and Irish charts with 'The JCB song' in 2005.
They have a fierce reputation for their inspiring, moving, live shows often taking the show into the heart of the audience.
Having been doing their own things for the past four years, they have come back together in 2013 performing new material, songs from their two previous albums and material for Luke's new solo album 'Give It All'.
'We immediately started writing new material in the rehearsals. The fire is as hot as ever.' says Luke The band announced a low-key first show back at The Borderline in London in June 2013. The show sold out in hours. A second show was announced. It also sold out in hours. They were back.
A live EP with recordings from those incredible comeback shows in planned for December 2013 followed by a new album in spring 2015 with festival dates planned for summer 2014. John Martyn and Danny Thompson meets The Roots and Ani Di Franco, Nizlopi play, joyful, honest, atavistic, heavenly folk stories. And when Nizlopi perform live, they are a positive force like no other.

Billy Rowan, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings to- gether acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. After 7 years spent DJ'ing and MC'ing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy ditched the decks for a guitar and started out as a solo act in 2007. Since then he has teamed up with some of the best musicians on the circuit, and now plays with a 7 piece band, bringing together fiddle, keys, drums, bass, congas and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Plan B meets The Cat Empire... on a protest march... at the Edinburgh Fringe.
From starting out 5 years ago playing in festival cafes for a free meal, Billy and his band of back- street groove pushers now perform to sell-out crowds at some of the UK's best festivals and venues. Highlights for 2012 included performing on the main stage after Mr Motivator (!) at Scotland's Eden Festival, and headlining at the amazing Beatherder Festival.
Billy has self-released one album and one E.P. under the name "The Undercover Hippy", both to critical acclaim, as well as a single release in Germany on Agogo Records. He is currently hard at work recording his first full length album under his own name, due for release in summer 2013.
