  1. Roni Size & Reprazent and William Goodchild, featuring The Emerald Ensemble and Gospel Choir A once in a life time opportunity to hear Bristol’s drum & bass legend, Roni Size, team up with the acclaimed classical composer, William Goodchild, to celebrate Bristol’s musical talent - past, present and future. Roni Size and William Goodchild will combine their creative forces with the Emerald Ensemble Chamber Orchestra, a Gospel Choir, and Roni’s own band, Reprazent, for a unique, one-off performance at Bristol’s Colston Hall. Working together on a piece inspired by Roni and William’s musical influences, as well as exclusively previewing tunes from the forthcoming Reprazent album, with an exciting support act TBC, this will be an unforgettable and incredible chance to hear a musical legend pushing the boundaries. This is, without doubt, one of the most exciting events Bristol will witness in 2009. Tickets: £18+bf Friday 25th September Colston Hall, Bristol Box Office Tel: 01179223686 email: boxoffice@colstonhall.org RONI SIZE - From his meeting with DJ Krust in the early 90’s, to the establishment of the Full Cycle label in 1993, it was only ever really a matter of time before Roni Size made it into the big time. Musically minded, dynamic and forward thinking, Roni has pushed the boundaries of the D&B scene and defined a whole generation with his music. Now the driving force behind Reprazent, as well as pursuing his own personal mission, Roni is undoubtedly one of the most talented musicians to emerge from Bristol in recent times. The last time he played at Colston Hall was as a schoolboy, and is now looking forward to making a rather bigger entrance than before! WILLIAM GOODCHILD - A composer and producer, with a personal style strongly influenced by Western Classical and World Music traditions, William works with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the London Metropolitan Orchestra. He has undertaken numerous projects for the BBC including several major natural history series such as Nature's Great Events (2009), Wild China (2008), Ganges (2007), Europe – a Natural History (2005), Journey of Life (2004) and Wild New World (2002) and has recorded for Sony Classical, Universal Classical and Jazz, and CBS Records. In Bristol, William is a guest conductor with the Emerald Ensemble - Bristol’s professional chamber orchestra. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=83173399009 http://www.colstonhall.org/boxoffice/whatson/Event902
  2. Beth Rowley with special guests and Phantom Limb Thursday 24th September, 8pm, £20 Fusing a vintage sound & sensibility with a joyous, contemporary edge, Beth Rowley defies expectation with her towering vocals and sophisticated, gospel-tinged sound. To cap a great year which includes a Brit award nomination and a Glastonbury appearance, Bristol's own internationally acclaimed singer will present a unique performance at the newly redeveloped Colston Hall. Beth writes: 'for this special performance I will be showcasing some of my newly written songs taken from my forthcoming album and will be joined by a string section, a choir and of course my own world renowned musicians. I have also invited some special guests to join me on-stage for what promises to be a one-off performance.' Supported by an enlarged version of Bristol's enigmatic Phantom Limb.

  3. Academy is a terrible venue, the sound is awful, the drinks are overpriced and watered down, and the staff are at best nonchalant, at worst, rude. It's a real pity that they are the only venue in Bristol that can accommodate a large amount of people (other than oceana or syndicate!) .... it gets a bit fat MEH from me
