Bank Holiday Easter Sunday / STEVE DAVIS & KAVUS TORABI DJ SET!

Legendary snooker world champion Steve Davis and experimental musician Kavus Torabi will team up for what promises to be a very special DJ Set on Easter Sunday!

Steve Davis' notorious 2016 Glastonbury set at the 500 capacity Stonebridge bar was mobbed by a curious turned shocked and enthralled crowd.
With a packed out DJ diary since, Steve has continued to woo party goers from Bluedot to Bloc Festival.
Drawing from an eclectic array of influences: Magma, Caravan, Oscar Perry, Soft Machine and Gong to name but a few – Steve spins together a unique set in his quest to deliver the music he loves to lovers of the party.

 

STEVE DAVIS

Steve Davis was the most successful professional Snooker Player of the 1980's, winning a total of 28 major ranking events including 6 World Championships.
n recent years his involvement in snooker has been limited mainly to TV punditry, which has given him far more time to indulge in his musical hobby, namely collecting left field music from around the globe and presenting a weekly Radio show on PhoenixFM with Kavus Torabi.
His musical tastes range from quality 70's Prog, Canterbury and Zeuhl through to modern day Rock in Opposition and Avant-Progressive and now further into left-field electronica and IDM.

Steve Davis has won more professional snooker titles in the sport than any other player, including six World Championships during the 1980s, when he was the world number one for seven years and became the sport's first millionaire.

The 1980s was certainly Steve's decade as a snooker player, one in which he notched up a number of notable firsts. In 1982, he became the first player to achieve an official televised maximum break and in 1988 he became the first player to complete snooker's Triple Crown in a single season. His dominance was recognised with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award in 1981.

Steve retired from playing snooker in 2016 but still does the occasional commentatory for the BBC's snooker coverage, as well as being a popular quiz show guest and a much in demand After-dinner speaker.

Kavus Torabi an experimental/ psychedelic musician with a long history in the field. He fronts his own band, Knifeworld and plays in Gong, Guapo and Cardiacs.
He runs the boutique record label, Believers Roast, has collaborated with a wide range of left-field artists and co-presents The Interesting Alternative Show with Steve Davis, championing new experimental, avant-garde, far out, underground, electronic, pop, folk, psych, rock and classical music.
