The Dustaphonics play a mix of high energy vintage rock n roll and authentic instrumental surf with a distinctly London attitude that takes their music beyond simple imitation.

The band’s birth was suitably auspicious blessed by the likes of music and cinema legend such as Bo Diddley, Tura Satana, Spanky Wilson, Wanda Jackson as part of Serrano’s Raison D’Etre London Artists Collective. During a private show in London, legendary actor and singer with the Blues Brothers Dan Aykroyd even jumped on stage with them to sing some of his classic numbers. Now expect seriously feel good vibes, a hint of garage soul and a teaspoon of punk rock circa 1977

The Secret Showcase Presents… The Dirty Gentlemen at Floripa

21 Feb
The Secret Showcase Presents… is delighted to announce that on Wednesday the 26th of February we will be hosting a show with The Dirty Gentlemen at Floripa and boy we can’t wait!

Do Not miss out on this FREE amazing mid week party.

Picture 4

The 9 piece Dirty Gentlemen orchestra is providing a fight back for the old school standing defiant against the ‘autotune industry’. They have spent their first few years together playing Swamp Pop, Soul and New Orleans Rhythm and Blues and are now conjuring up their own rhythms in any way, shape or form that feels right.

Guitarist and singer George Elliot discovered his passion for the music of New Orleans whilst recording in the swamps of Louisiana with band ‘Scoundrels’. Here he got to meet and work with some of the pioneers of the genre and got the chance to soak up the sounds and rhythms of the bayou. On his return to london he realised the sounds that he fell in love with in the swamps were missing. Gathering together a combination of old bandmates from school and other talented blues loving musicians from london blues hub, ‘Ain’t nothing but the blues bar’, Dirty Gentlemen emerged out of the urban swamp and ploughed on with front room party style gigs.

They have now moved into a warehouse in the depths of north-east London where they are building their HQ and recording studio so that they can play from dawn till dusk. With a combination of gritty guitar, growling Hammonds, punching horns, kicking drums and bass, and heartfelt vocals from George as well as the formidable Phil Hughes, Dirty Gentlemen have had an amazing year and a half of bringing this music to the ears of young and old music lovers who can’t help but feel good, stomp their feet and keep coming back for more deep fried music.


After the live entertainment TSSP. Resident DJ Samantha Pink Panther will spin the very best Jazz and Rhythm & Blues 45s

Fancy a treat? Floripa have a great selection of cocktails on offer during happy hour between 5-7 and you can also sample Floripa’s brand new Brazilian influenced menu with mouth watering dishes perfect for sharing.

Kansas Smitty NYE gig at Ribeira is Cancelled.

29 Dec

Having something beyond your control fail at the last minute is certainly the worst part of being a promoter and unfortunately due to an issue with the late licence at Ribeira this is exactly what has occurred.

TSSP - PRESS RELEASE 10Therefore we are absolutely devastated to announce that because of this, The Secret Showcase Presents NYE Party with The Kansas Smitty House Band will not be happening. We will however, be hosting a Kansas Smitty Gig in the new year, tho we can’t apologise enough to anyone who had made plans to come to our NYE party. If you have purchased a ticket you will have received an email explaining that you will receive a refund.

Ribeira will still be open till 12.30 with free entry but there will be no live music provided by TSSP. People can have a 3 course dinner with a glass of bubbly for £35 if they wish. If interested they can book tables directly through Ribeira (0203 119 0037)

DJ Samantha Pink Panther will still be playing some 50s Rhythm & Blues early which will be followed by The Fossey Shuffle band who will be playing a live set of Motown, soul and jazz covers as Ribeira say goodbye to 2013 to welcome in 2014!

We are so crushed to learn of this disaster at such short notice after we have worked so hard to plan something we were really looking forward to, tho we are confident we will soon have an alternative date confirmed for a Kansas Smitty party and also glad that Ribeira is able to offer something for NYE. With this in mind we would like to thank you all for your continued support and wish you a very happy New Year, Whatever you decide to do.

Please accept our most sincere apologies again. We are absolute gutted! Please do not hesitate to contacts us with any queries you might have at thesecretshowcasepresents@gmail.com

The Secret Showcase Presents…A New Years Eve Party with Kansas Smitty’s House Band

19 Dec

I’m incredibly delighted to announce that The Secret Showcase Presents… will be hosting a very exciting New Years Eve Party at RibeiraPicture 7

After a successful year featuring illustrious acts The Golden Boys and CC Smugglers. We are delighted to announce that The Kansas Smitty’s House Band will transport us back in time and provide us with a number of tremendous live sets to celebrate.

ksrb small

Inspired by the swinging, hedonistic atmosphere of the one American city that overcame the Great Depression. The Kansas Smitty’s House Band are the fresh answer to London’s booming ‘speakeasy jazz’ scene. The Smitty’s House Band features an ever shifting line up of London’s best musicians put together by band leader on alto sax and clarinet Giacomo Smith. Hot off the back of sold out shows at Ronnie Scotts, The Vortex, Peckham Liberal Club & The Servants Jazz Quarters and unfettered by pretensions of academic authenticity, it is not just another vintage dress up party. They’re putting danger back in jazz.

What’s more, host and resident DJ Samantha Pink Panther will feature an assortment of the best old time Jazz, Swing, Jump ‘n’ Jive, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Soul and Rhythm & Blues dancing tunes on 45s, accompanied by a compilation of silent films.

Fancy something tasty! Grab yourself a refreshing Mint Julep, Kansas Smitty’s very own special recipe or something else equally as mouthwatering from Ribeira’s South American inspired food and drinks menu. Food service finishes early but resumes again in time for breakfast.

Dust of your threads and dig out your best dancing shoes. Please come and join us in our magnificent celebrations for a truly unforgeable start to the new year.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Guarantee your place at the party now and Book your tickets HERE at Design My Night for £10 or pay £15 on the door subject to availability
