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.

Take The 5th came together in 2000. They are all experienced musicians and joined up to recapture the spirit of the times they grew up in, when bands like The Clash were beacons for the young generation during a period of prolonged political dis-function and social un-rest. The Clash had an unsurpassed energy and a blend of Rock and Reggae which spanned the youth cultures of the day.
New attitudes were spawned that prevail to this day showing that the way things are needs not constitute reason for them to remain so. We can do things differently if we want to. We don't need to seek permission, we can bring it and we can do it - collectively or as individuals.
In 2010, after hundreds of gigs the band stopped regularly touring but they still come together for special events such as the 10 year anniversary of 'Arms Aloft in Acton Town' and the fantastic Joe Strummer Rembrance event in early January at the Komedia, Brighton (now in its 12th year).
Take The 5th is an appreciation of The Clash. They play as individuals with authentic power and conviction but there is no attempt to copy, what would be the point of that? The Clash did it right first time. Having said that their music matters and it is still best heard live: any day, every town.

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.
