The Big Sets LAST FULL BAND GIG OF 2017!! Don't be the chump that misses it : )
See all the boys together for the last time this year. High energy, craze fuelled, frantic, fun and musically delicious! See you on that dancefloor peeps x
Rip-roaring Alt-Folk band Noble Jacks are joining us to raise the roof with their upbeat folky footstompin' rhythms and engaging lyricism. These guys encompass heartfelt, yet uptempo songs showcasing fiddle, blues harmonica and big anthem toplines. Come and support them!!
THIS IS A GREAT CAUSE....
The many beautiful cats that currently call Newquay's RSCPA Animal Centre their home, are in need of rain protection! The cats have lovely caged runs which allow them to spend time outdoors aswell as inside. The only problem is that when it rains they get soaked! Many of the cats are too frightened to come inside meaning they will sit out in the rain - they get very wet as does their bedding and blankets. SOGGY BEDS Oh no!!!
Whiskers is on a mission to raise £1500 for a roofed walkway outside the runs. This will protect the cats from the rain allowing them to comfortably relax outside whatever the weather.
We have the builders in place ready to do the work...we just need to raise the funds!
So... come along and support this event, help us raise the cash and enjoy an evening of fun for the whole family!!
5.30pm Children's kitten fancy dress competition!
Who can be the best cat or kitten?! £1 to enter the competition with all funds going towards the roof! Prize for best kitty announced at 7pm!
Plus a cat drawing competiion - who can draw the best kitty?! Winner announced at 7pm!
(Parents can perhaps enjoy a cocktail!!)
There will be a raffle and silent auction to get involved with; great prizes with all money going towards our kitten friends!
Somebody from the fantastic Newquay RSPCA will be with us with information on cats who are in need of homes. Some of the cats have been with them for 2 years!! If you are thinking of rescuing a cat or kitten please come along and speak to the team.
We will also be accepting gifts for the cats who are always in need of food, scratching posts, beds and toys. These can be new or second hand! Please bring them along on the night!!
We look forward to seeing you for a full evening of fun, prizes, cat info and the raising of the all important £1500 which will literally be a life changer for the cats and kittens who reside up the road : )
If you are able to donate a prize or a service please get in touch!
Thanks so much xx
It's been too long since we had this epic local band play at Whiskers! ALWAYS an INCREDIBLE night with Black Friday. Wear your comfy shoes because you will not want to stop dancing! So much energy, so much fun!! Don't miss this mid-week musical delight!
Here's what they say...
'IGUANAS mash the mundane and the mystic to form a semi-escapist landscape, half grown from the paranoid hyper-reality of domestic society and a constant barrage of holiday snaps.
And with self-proclaimations that they are the 'Best band since the f***in Beatles mate.' Why would you even dream of not being at this gig?!
Think Calipso Tropicana with beats and sounds that will make you move!
Circle Of Crows return to Whiskers for the release of their debut EP!
It's going to be an epic night of rock with merchandise and CDs available to purchase.
Support to be announced.
Can't wait for a CD? You can download/stream it now from iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and loads of other online stores : )

Stay tuned for info on how and where you can buy your ticket xx
'Brilliant Corners Ghana':
Directed and presented by travel writer, former European longboard champion and Finisterre Ambassador Sam Bleakley, Brilliant Corners is a surf travel series of 52 minute long documentaries (five episodes per series) exploring emerging surf cultures, and capturing the power of surfing for social good. Through interviews, narrative and beautifully filmed surfing sequences in extreme destinations, Sam meets developing surf cultures, explores surfing as dance, and leads an adventure travelogue across a variety of physical environments, learning about the respective landscapes of art and music. Brilliant Corners is a celebration of life, travel and off-the-beaten-track places, demonstrating how surfing can offer detailed understanding of the changing relationship between cultures and coastlines.
Brilliant Corners Ghana filmed by Felix Gansicke, presented by Sam Bleakley, featuring Brett Davies, produced by The Wave Productions'
An evening of entertainment hosted by Tribo Grooves! Expect great music, the best vibes and a heap of friendly faces.
DO NOT MISS THIS GIG! Pioneers of the 'Gyp-Hop' sound, full of character and bouncy base lines, Gypsy Unit are definitely not your run-of-the-mill hiphop act. Combining a rowdy, cheeky party vibe with a quirky string section and hooky choruses, their trademark sound makes them one of the freshest acts to hit the scene.
Take a listen, then get straight to Whiskers to buy your ticket before they sell out! Super early bird just £4 - very limited.
Support by the awesome DJ Karmaloji : )
As Bob said 'One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.'

A real treat for you here guys with two incredible acts...
Arbour, the four man strong band who will be playing BOARDMASTERS this year, have created a rare chemistry of catchy melodies, poppy hooks and driving, etherial guitars. Arbour captures the core of folk pop, textured with intricate, addictive guitar and a driving rhythm section providing a raw, exciting and timeless musical accompaniment to Josh's unique voice and clever lyrics.
Years ago Cornish reggae rock artist Nick Mears decided to leave behind conventional education to travel the world. During these travels the focus of his career completely flipped and he began learning his new craft on the acoustic guitar. Thank goodness he did because this has led to him playing shows in all corners of the world...and tonight that corner is WHISKERS!
