Nearly ten years ago the Lovely Music Night was started by the team to bring great original live acoustic music to Woking, a platform for new music and a great night out for lovers of live music, and creativity. We started in pubs, on the streets, cafes and wine bars all around the area until we got our small acoustic venue in Goldsworth Rd. With the news that we are here to stay we are relaunching our monthly acoustic nights as The Lovely Music Night so,whenever you are asked where you are going – it’s to listen to Lovely Music!
This month we are very proud to welcome …
Claudia Stark and Zach Johnson, both known for their excellent solo work they have, in recent months been collaborating and the result of that is the release of their new EP this month.
The Grand Old Uke of Dork who has been so well received at all his ever increasing gigs and was a resounding success at Woking Food Festival, we knew we had to get him back to hear more.
The excellent Taylor’s House who gave us a fantastic set at the inaugural Aurora night.

SOUR KIX are coming back to rock their home town, Woking, all in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust!
After a busy year of gigging up and down the country, Amelie and bandmates: Ollie, Ed, Andries and Louis are bringing it back to their routes and putting on and end of year party, not to be missed. Their energetic performances will be sure to engage an exhilarated audience, pulsing out melodic vocals, killer drum fills, fat bass riffs and face melting guitar licks – Sour Kix will ensure you will be dancing and singing along. With support from diverse local artists Armstrong, Juno, Life Like Charlie and George Gervasio, the Fiery Bird in Woking is the place to be on 20th December!
Sour Kix are a young band from Woking in Surrey. Formed 6 years ago they are made up of siblings Amelie (vocals), Ollie ( drums) and Louis (guitar and vocals) alongside best friends Ed (bass guitar) and Andries (guitar and bass). A highly energetic mix of pop/rock explodes from their performances. Their skill at pleasing the crowd with a selection of well crafted originals along with a number of high octane covers (which they like to put their own spin on) has culminated in them being requested to play at numerous festivals around the country along with supporting some amazing bands across the South of England. They gained further attention when they were asked to play live on Channel 4’s TFI Friday, drawing acclaim from presenter Chris Evans and guests Ronnie Wood, Ellie Goulding and The Vamps, as well as sharing the main stage with acts such as the Kaiser Chiefs, Scouting For Girls and The Vamps. Their first EP ‘Wildest Dreams’ has been extremely well received, with more material due to be released in the new year.
Juno are made up of 4 friends who met at secondary school and have been playing together for 3 years. They’ve had recent success with the release of their debut single “Do You Want Me” which has since received over 30,000 streams on Spotify. They are inspired by bands such as “The Night Cafe”, “The Kooks” and “Two Door Cinema Club”. The band consists of Max (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Ben (lead guitar and backing vocals), Tom (bass guitar) and Ted (drums) who all love having a laugh and making and performing music together.
Armstrong are a 3-piece indie rock band based in Surrey/Hampshire. Formed in 2018, they’ve spent the last year touring non-stop, playing everything from pubs and clubs to schools and festivals; anything to fuel their fire! They received the award for motivation presented by Innovative & Unique for 2018. The Band is Will Collins, Ollie Woods and Tom Leadbetter, three best mates who push each other to be the best that they can. Constantly honing and improving, their influences include Catfish and the Bottlemen, Foo Fighters, Bon Iver and The Beatles: as diverse a range as their sound!
Life Like Charlie pours out emotional, anthemic music. Charlie sings about his life experiences, condensed into catchy melodies and clever hooks. With singles such as ‘My Heart Beats’ and ‘The Love Has Gone’ sitting as true favourites for his devoted fanbase, Charlie has recently released a raw stripped back EP sure to captivate an audience.
George Gervasio is an aspiring singer-songwriter based in Woking who is currently busking around the UK playing and promoting his new heart-strung debut EP.
