midweek, we CLOSE THE CURTAINS
outside of the weekends, we close the curtains and dim the lights, for a series of intimate, candle-lit gigs in our conservatory. A limited number of tables are available for dinner during these shows (unless otherwise stated), for which booking is strongly recommended. Doors at 8.30pm, show starting at 9pm.
weekends mean LATE NIGHT LIVE
Late Night Live comes at the weekends, where the music gets a bit louder, the drinks flow a bit faster and things go on a bit later. A band plus DJ continues to be the format of these nights, often with one of the band themselves spinning for the night, offering an insight into the musical influences that go into the bands own sets, but more importantly keeping you dancing either side of the band being on stage. Entry to all Late Night Live gigs remains free, with things kicking off about 10pm.

Neon Waltz, with support from Esperi
Neon Waltz have come from nowhere and have several major record labels in a bit of a tizz chasing their signature. Rumour has it that Oasis' manager has snapped them up and has big plans for the psychedelic indie rock band.
They write & play their melodic, sun-drenched, sonic soundscapes in a remote croft, located in the wilderness
of Caithness and are making the long drive down to make sure Bingley Music Live fans are some of the first to see what's got the music industry so excited.
They will be ably supported by Invernessian experimental, loop artist/singer/songwriter, Esperi.

Stu Larsen, £6
Australian singer/songwriter Stu is on an epic ride, playing shows across the globe, from huge crowds at massive outdoor gigs to intimate little affairs like our own.
here's a wee bio we found, which makes us like him even more...
"Stu Larsen has no fixed address, no job and few possessions - just a handful of generous friends who let him sleep on their floor or couch, or in their spare room as he ventures onward. The last year has seen him exploring & wandering all over the world. Through Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, road tripping with friends, playing unexpected shows in unexpected places, staying in the homes of old and new friends all along the way. Somewhere amongst all that, there was time for the recording of the ep RYEFORD. Stu flew in good friends and fellow singer/songwriters Luke Thompson (New Zealand) and Tim Hart (Sydney / Boy & Bear) to Brisbane and headed west to an old farmhouse where they met up with engineer Caleb James (Rhubarb / Leo Nine) to spend the week in isolation, recording five new tracks for the EP." from Triplejunearthed.com

Jelly Roll Soul is a Stirling based club/party dedicated to music past, present & future with real funk & grit rather than flat, digitised sheen; house, afro-funk, hip hop, detroit techno, disco, jazz and more. If you are the type of person that prefers dancing yer ass off like you just don't care rather than standing at the bar looking cool then Jelly Roll Soul is the night for you.

Saturday 13th December - OBI IS 5 YEARS OLD (part 1)
Wow! Seems at times like 5 minutes and at others like 50 years, but the clock doesn't lie and this will indeed be our 5th birthday party. Being lucky enough to enjoy regulars from all walks of life, all musical tastes and a multitude of generations, we're doing a double header birthday celebration, with DJs galore on the Friday night, including residents OC & The Wook, with more to follow. This will be a restaurant clear out job, with dinner beiny served in the bar and dancing served up in the restaurant.
Sunday 14th December - OBI IS 5 YEARS OLD (part 2) - SHOOGLENIFTY LIVE! - £15 in advance, standing. 8.30pm
Tickets are now on sale as we welcome this legendary 6 piece for a special appearance. We'll be keeping things in the restaurant area, as it does lend itself more to the dancefloor, which will suit Shooglenifty down to the ground. Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland, Shooglenifty began life with a residency at the La Belle Angele pub and quickly drew a strong fanbase for their energised, contemporary roots material which soon became one of Scotland's most unique musical exports. This six-man band is credited being the originators of 'acid-croft', a fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves that band members describe as "hypno-folkadelic ambient trad." A supremely dexterous and witty live band, their energetic live performances have kept them in constant demand around the world.
