Andy Balcon and Dave Crowe are an intruiging pair; Balcon plays raw, classic blues guitar rhythms – so far so normal, you may be thinking – whilst Crowe supplements this with his explosive and astonishing beatboxing. Yes, you did read that correctly. Hence, Heymoonshaker are perhaps the only known exponents of Beatbox Blues, yet this unique blend of two styles which were conceived decades apart manages to sound truly magnificient. A video of the incredibly talented Crowe busking and wowing crowds on Brick Lane in 2011 has amassed almost 10-million views on YouTube, and the chance to catch the pair in the intimate surroundings of Sheffield's oldest theatre is surely one not to be missed.
Heymoonshaker release the EP 'Shakerism' on February 27th.
