"Bombastic, raucous and infectious, 'Monuments To Dead Gods' is an awesome display of traditional British heavy metal” - Frenzy Fire
Dethonator are an exciting, four-piece Heavy Metal band, with guitarist Henry Brooks also known to many Isfield locals from his weekly appearances at The Laughing Fish. Dethonator have honed their craft over a decade and a half of gigs and tours, demos and self-releases, line-up and even name changes to become what they are today. Having earned a formidable reputation for their hi-octane, exhilarating live performances and their immediate, anthemic songs, Dethonator's fan base has been steadily growing.
King Louie is a soul and funk covers band based in East Sussex, covering artists such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Tina Turner, The Blues Brothers, Dusty Springfield and Tower of Power. The band boasts seven musicians, including a horn section and two vocalists, and has been performing together for a couple of years, playing at venues such as the Brick Layers Arms in Crowborough and the Laughing Fish in Isfield.
The band were formed in the early eighties by members of WWG Gracefully CC to play a fund raiser gig. It went so well they decided to carry on and over the years, through various line up changes have gained a good following in Lewes and the surrounding area. They play "get up and dance after a few beers" music from the late 70's to the present day. Don't miss them at Isfest this year. They are really rather good.
The Boogaloo Dudes
Described as raw and edgy, The Boogaloo Dudes deliver a range of original Rock n Roll songs influenced by 70’s Punk Rock and 60’s Psychedelia. With a relentless, driving back beat, a swampy Telecaster twang and swirling Hammond organ they evoke flavours of bands such as the Stones, the Doors and the Stooges yet have a distinctive original sound that sets them aside as no copyists.
