Live and Unheard – March

Thu 28 Mar 2024

Hangover Hill and Lighthouse present three more highly rated acts as they have a rare opportunity to experience a larger stage in our monthly unsigned music night.

The Jimmy Hillbillies

With four voices, 16 strings, a solid back-line, a pair of accordions and a didgeridoo, The Jimmy Hillbillies put a rustic shine on some seriously fun, stompingly great hoedown music.

Dorset’s happiest music, hoedown music, has its roots in the country, old-time folk and cow punk of the Dorset music scene. The Jimmy Hillbillies’ high-energy performances rouse their audiences, transporting them to a happy, carefree place where it’s good to sing, dance, stomp and even chicken-conga along to their breakneck tunes.

This is a band that knows how to entertain playing to audiences at large festivals (Camp Bestival, Boomtown, Dorset Steam Fayre), boutique festivals (Wonky Donk, VDub at the Pub, Shake and Stir), beer festivals and the best of Dorset’s fine music venues.

Harry Jxye

Hailing from the captivating landscapes of South England, Harry Jxye emerges as a dynamic force in the realm of Pop Punk/Pop Rock, captivating audiences with his raw talent and unique perspective.

At 26 years old, he is a visionary artist on a mission to share his compelling narratives, drawing inspiration from a diverse array of influences. With an explosive delivery, Harry Jxye weaves relatable lyrics and infectious vocals into his music, creating a sound that resonates with a wide audience.

His compositions are born from personal experiences and uphill struggles, forming a tapestry of stories that not only reflect his journey but also serve as a powerful voice for the unheard.

JXYE already has festivals booking him for 2024 as well as established venue shows.

Jason Lloyd Bevis

Jason Lloyd Bevis is a Dorset based artist whose sound comes from many angles, including Rock, Blues, Soul and Americana. With a heavy guitar presence and strong groove, he consistently brings his songwriting alive for the audience. Add to the mix some gritty yet passionate vocals and this will be a performance you won’t want to miss.

Peter Bearder (aka Pete the Temp)

Pete is a singer, comic and spoken word artist whose work has been featured on national and international TV and radio.  He is a former UK Poetry Slam champion and has performed and taught in over 15 countries with organisations that include The British Council.  His mission is to incite a spirit of carnival, wonderment and riotous love.
