The yellow house

We’ve been working with The yellow house on their live music programme for over four years now and we’re about to break our usual ‘last Thursday of the month’ rule, and shift to the first Saturday of the month.

The live music will also be moving from the bar into the dining room and will now feature a mix of soul, acoustic and jazz acts. Live music on Saturdays launch November 1st. Watch this space for further details coming soon…. Oh and btw, their pizzas are FABULOUS!

Goodbye London, ‘Hei’ Norway

Bands & Musicians to hi

Earlier this month we said goodbye to Kelly Dickson and Werner Kristiansen, who left London for one of the world’s happiest countries, Norway (what on earth were they thinking?!)

We are incredibly sad to see them go although reassured by their promise (after much begging) to return for the occasional gig.

Kelly and Werner have been with us since the very beginning, and have been involved in pretty much every gig we’ve booked! They’re not only incredible musicians but super-pro and stupidly nice, so it makes seeing them go all the more difficult (tissues please).

We wish them the very best of luck with their adventure in Norway, and we can’t wait for the first excuse to go over and visit. Put the kettle on Werner and get the Bamsemums at the ready…

New website & thank yous!

Sound Generation Thanks
Welcome to our brand new website! We’ve been so excited about launching the site because we feel that it represents us and our wonderful artists, perfectly. Please have a look around – we hope you like what you see!

A huge thanks go out to Sam Devito, Tom Scott-Malden and Suj Gadhania  (web monkeys/uber friends), for the design, creative and build, and for their infinite patience.

Also, these lovely peeps deserve a special mention:

Garrett & Garrett Videographers & Photographers

Cristina Sound Generation Artist

 

Garrett and Garrett are an award winning videography team based in London. We began working with just recently, but from day one have been blown away by their creativity, skill behind the camera, and their positive attitude. We cannot thank them enough for the videos and photography they have done for us.

If you are ever in need of a promotional video – these are your guys!

Murray Clarke Wedding Photographer

Murray is a fantastic photographer who took the shots of us in and around Sam’s Brasserie in Chiswick, which we used for the ‘about us’ page, and also features elsewhere  on the site. He also very kindly let us use one of his photos for the home page. Murray has recently featured in several wedding blogs and magazines.

Planning a wedding? Need a photographer? You do the math!

Philip Hardman Photographer

He’s photographed the likes of Ed Miliband (no, not the now infamous bacon sandwich shot) and his clients include Tatler, Land Rover, Evening Standard and Jaguar. We love his photography and were thrilled when he offered to work with us on a few shoots including photographing Irene and her band performing at the Forge for the London Jazz Festival last year.

Live Music at Marriott West India Quay
 
Marriott, West India Quay

Last month we helped launch the brand new terrace of the Lobby Lounge at the London Marriott West India Quay Hotel. DJ Zulu provided the chilled and eclectic soundtrack. Starting September 11th, we will provide a DJ every Thursday evening in the Lobby Lounge. Make sure you pop in; it’s a fabulous space, with an incredible Gin selection and cocktail menu (we intend to work our way through it four drinks at a time), and of course – great tunes!
