Mod n’ Mini Night Gig – 4th April

The Sha La La’s Mod band will be playing originals and covers, and promoting their new track (Keep On) Risin’ Up To Love, supported by The High-s, at the Ace on Thursday 4th April’s Mod n’ Mini Night ( 6pm – 11pm). Free Entry.

In the year Bradley Wiggins helped put Mod and 6Ts style back on the international stage, it’s nice to know there are a few bands out there determined to add a new spin and twist to a time-served musical force.

And just a month after the latest deluxe re-issues featuring The Jam, on the strength of The Sha La La’s (Keep on) Risin’ up to love EP, the flame still burns.

Think back to the urgency of Weller, Foxton and Buckler’s first LP In The City, and speed 35 years forward (yes, it’s that long) to find a similarly-driven trio inspired by that spirit of classic soul and high-octane guitar-based r’n’b.

Where The Jam’s seminal debut material showcased everyone from Small Faces and The Who through to Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, all that and more is woven into the grooves of this South-East three piece’s latest output.

Lead track (Keep On) Risin’ Up To Love has shades of The Who’s I Can’t Explain and the feel of a Weller classic, and you could so easily see Otis giving this fine track his all on Ready Steady Go way back when.

Losin’ It has a touch of a James Taylor Quartet cover of a long-forgotten TV theme, but with added zip and plenty of old Motown, Atlantic, Northern Soul and Stax magic.

Blue Plaque for Dave Sutch

Blue Plaque in memory of Screaming Lord Sutch

Unveiling Sunday 4th
November – Ton Up Day

Venue: Ace Cafe London


Ace Cafe London is delighted to confirm that this years annual Ton
Up Day, Sunday 4th November, will include the unveiling at the premises by The
Heritage Foundation of a Blue Plaque in tribute to the late Screaming Lord
Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow.

Born, during the blitz on London, in a Hampstead hospital, Dave Sutch lived locally in Harrow and soon became a regular frequenter of the then notorious Ace Cafe, visiting on a BSA 125 and listening to the latest rock n’ roll sounds on the jukebox.

In addition to finding
success with his music and extraordinary stage shows, in the 1960’s, when voters
had to be over 21, he stood in parliamentary elections as a representative of
the National Teenage Party and went on to found the Official Monster Raving
Loony Party which he served as leader from 1983 to 1999, during which time he
stood in numerous parliamentary elections.

As a great friend of the Ace,
Dave Sutch kindly officiated at the first Ace Cafe Reunion, held at the premises
in 1994, and shared with all those present on that day of how it was at the Ace
that he ate his very first rubber egg!

The Mayor of Brent, Councillor
Michael Adeyeye and All Party Parliamentary Motorcycle Group MP, Steven Pound,
have kindly confirmed their attendance.

Also attending this very special
occasion are David Graham of the Heritage Foundation, Howling Loud Hope and Lord
Toby Jug of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party together with Graeme Sharpe
from William Hill (sponsors of the MRLP as well as being Sutch’s biographer and
lifelong friend).

Amongst Dave Sutch’s contemporaries confirming that
they will be attending are Jess Conrad (actor and rock n’ roll star), Clem
Cattini & Roger LaVern (The Tornados), Frank Allen (The Searchers), Brian
Gregg (Johnny Kidd & The Pirates), to name but a few.

Dave Sutch
