Civil Simian, Velvet Alibi, Scream Blue Murmur, Blackjack Empire Music Hall

The Beehive is a unique event that aims to build a network of likeminded artists through a regular live funk and groove evening, featuring a line up of some of the genre’s finest ambassadors from across NI and beyond. Civil Simian brings together many disparate genres of music culminating in a truly unique sound with a strong emphasis on groove – funk, rock, pop, jazz, folk and electronica. Velvet Alibi is a groove ensemble whose expansive sound merges melodic song writing, lush vocal harmonies, funky beats and virtuosic improvisation. Scream Blue Murmur do scalding lyrics and dynamic funk, soul and jazz. It’s hard and heavy groove-based dance music. Drummer/producer Henrique Franco aka Blackjack leads a power trio featuring Carlinhos Cruz on guitar/vocals and Isra Castro on bass. They will be grooving to a mix of soulful jazzy Brazilian-flavoured music, with surprise guests. 6
