Who remembers last January's belta?? 

‘Winter’ falls on January 27th and exactly a year to the date that they last played, K.O.G and The Zongo Brigade have been invited back. Last year their infectious, high energy and talented afrobeat sent the whole venue into a frenzy. They are the first band to play at Cobalt twice , we had a tummy flip moment when they agreeed to come back …..and that’s probably enough said! 

Also on the line up……coconuts a go go…when the Smokin Coconuts hit the stage (along with their coconut scented smoke machine ) expect thrills and spills as they peddle their unique and sleazy cocktail of reggae, klezmer, calypso and Latin rhythms, all wrapped up in a bow of kick arse and called World Punk.

Before the dancing starts limber up with the Heatons own adorable snowman (AKA Hal Branson) …as part of the evenings entertainment there will be the chance to compete in the first ever seasonal winter Olympics; 
Five disciplines!
Mandatory drug tests!
Medal Ceremony! 

Other twists and turns and DJ to be announced. 

All ticket money goes to performers, so your ticket money helps to keep the world full of music and creativty!
