UP05 - RADIO STATION
Umbrella Radio is The Umbrella Project’s music and events platform. They curate the successful Non-Specific nights at The Sun Tavern, with guest DJs spreading their aural love. They’ve also been releasing podcasts for The Sun Tavern for over three years. If you like the music we play then check out the podcasts for similar sounds, and insights into the songs & bands you hear. You can also check out their podcast for our sister bar, Discount Suit Company, which is strictly vintage Funk & Soul.
DJS. We have resident DJs every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, spinning Rock ‘n’ Roll right up till 2am, ensuring our weekends are sufficiently raucous.
Umbrella Radio hold their monthly takeover, Non-Specific, every 2nd Thursday of the month, inviting guest DJs to show us their take on non-specific Rock ‘n’ Roll. Over the years we’ve been paid visits from guests as diverse as Pam Hogg, Carl Barât (The Libertines), Mystery Jets, Yeasayer, Andy Bell (Oasis, Ride) and Suggs, whose acapella rendition of It Must Be Love was a spinetingly uplifting moment.
Live Music. Sunday and Monday evenings, we have live music from the many musicians we have pass through our doors. Sundays see upbeat Jazz vibes from our Sunday residents, seeing out the last breaths of the weekend in the boisterous fashion it deserves.
Mondays are a little more laidback, with local songsmiths stopping by, pulling up a pew, and regaling all and sundry with a mix of their own songs and those of others. Regulars to swing by are Irish journey-man Pat Dam-Smyth and Yorkshire songstress Heidi R Gowthorpe .
