Nubiyan Twist

NUBIYAN TWIST at The Fleece Fri 20 October 2017 from 07:00 pm


Nubiyan Twist are a 10 piece musical collective founded by producer and guitarist Tom Excell. The group draw on their backgrounds in jazz, reggae and soul, with a fusion of afro-beat and latin rhythms, to create a modern sound that embraces live electronics alongside traditional instrumentation and jazz inspired improvisation. 

A culmination of musicians, DJ's and producers alike Nubiyan Twist boasts a 4 piece horn section, 5 piece rhythm section, 4 part vocal harmonies, live dubs and electronics. Every member brings their own musical strengths and their live show has intimate moments allowing each talent to shine, however the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts with powerful, full arrangements seamlessly transitioning throughout their performances. 

Over the band's 5 year lifespan they have shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Hot 8 Brass Band, Quantic & Robert Glasper. Their debut album received 4 star reviews from the Independent, Mojo, Songlines, Blues n Soul (to name a few) and has had radio support from David Rodigan, Craig Charles, Trevor Nelson and Huey Morgan.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email for more details.
