Mumbo-Jumbo – Saturday 28th September @ 8.00pm

Oliver Carpenter, Chris Lomas and Phil Bond – aka Mumbo-Jumbo – deliver eclectic, acoustic close harmony, multi instrumental piano led music, intimate and entertaining interaction with audiences and bring the fun back into live performance. Twice shortlisted in the British Blues Awards, but it’s not really blues!

“Managed to catch these guys again at the Hanwell Hootie festival. Their live act just gets better and better. Three top musicians at the top of their game having serious fun – and in front-man Oliver Carpenter they have one of the best exponents of stage-craft in the business. It was a delight watching them effortlessly turn a nice pleasant cheerful audience into a mad shouty hooting rabble demanding encores. Smart lyrics and pin sharp arrangements combine to provide wonderful thoughtful and amusing entertainment. Make sure they are on your summer hit list!” Peter Elliott

“The musicianship is unsurpassable, and the songwriting is excellent.” Blues in Britain magazine

“a perfect fit for performance folk clubs … three individually talented musicians, they come together perfectly in the band, with each in turn taking the lead….. a knockout!” – Bryn Phillips, Woodman Folk Club

You may have previously caught these three perform at The Cube, but its the first time they’ll be taking to the stage at Elmslie for what promises to be a really fun night. Tickets are available through

If you are local to Malvern tickets are also for sale through Malvern TIC (Tourist Information Centre) or Carnival Records, both on Church Street in Malvern.

NB – I have had to remove the Pay-pal button for buying tickets direct from us as the coding seems to have developed a gremlin and several people have rung to say that they have been unable to purchase them – so for this reason please click on the link to the Eventbrite page above or visit TIC/Carnival records in person. Apologies for any inconvenience!

The seating (maximum capacity is 80) is unreserved so the doors will open half an hour before the performance starts so that you can select your seats and if you so wish, have a drink at the Bar (Limited bar available – championing local beers, cider and soft refreshments).

Doors will be opening at 7.30pm for an 8.00pm start.

There is usually an interval after 45mins so that the performance will finish around 10.00pm.
