Derry’s Prodigal Daughter returns to the Maiden City

Saturday 5th April sees the first of several DJ dates at Grand Central Bar

The Rumble Club also confirm Canney’s appearance on 12th April at The Glassworks

 

(CAN FIX/IBIZA/FRI 4 APR 2014)

You can take the girl out of Derry but you can never take the Derry out of the girl. So much so, in fact, that after 18 long years based on the island of Ibiza, Maiden City native, PR professional and part time eclectic DJ Jillian Canney, also known as the Stray Kitten, has returned to her roots for once and for all.

Not long off the plane and like a cat on a hot tin roof, quick-off-the-mark Canney has already confirmed a series of DJ dates in the town under that very same aka of The Stray Kitten.

After an introductory gig at The Grand Central Bar at Christmas 2013, owner of the popular Derry watering hole, Rachael Eastwood, with a healthy push from the city’s Local Jukebox, David Doherty, offered the Stray Kitten a series of dates to keep her occupied from now until mid-June.

Starting this Saturday night, 5th April then, Canney can be found upstairs and/or downstairs of the Grand Central with full dates confirmed as follows: 5th April, 19th April, 17th May, 31st May and 14th June.

Asked to comment on her busy schedule, Canney said, “I *canny* wait! It’s great to be home and it’s great to be back at The Central. FYI I do do requests- send them straight to my FisBuk page, https://www.facebook.com/thestraykitten so I can get myself organised for this Saturday”.

But that’s not all the wee moggie has in store for Spring. In yet another re-appearance, she has also confirmed her return to the rockin’ rollin’ Rumble Club next Saturday 12th April at The Glassworks where, alongside the event’s main mean machines, Hot Rod Todd and Beatnik Dan, she plans to get the crowd shakin’ all over. For more info and to purchase tickets for this event, go to: https://www.facebook.com/TheRumbleClub

And not one to let the upcoming Derry Jazz Festival pass her by, wheels have also been set in motion to persuade the wanderer to get involved with the Vintage Weekender currently being organised by Bedlam and The Sandwich Co. More details on all of that in the very near future. Exciting stuff!

For the meantime, though, it’s all about this Saturday 5th April where the Stray Kitten promises an eclectic mix of all things rootin’, tootin’, jumpin’ and jivin’…

VAMP ROCKS HALLOWEEN!

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

…a night of scary surprises, horrible hellbabies and freaky fun…

Thursday 31 October from 9pm

‘Slip out from the shadows, you creatures of the Ibiza night,
Halloween is creeping up and it’s not a pretty sight,
Ghosts and Ghouls, Spooks and Sprites,
Blood and Gore when this Vamp bites…’

After last year’s scarily successful party of the same time, Halloween ‘wildcard’, VAMP is back in black this Thursday 31st October for a night of toe-tingling, blood-curdling madness up at Ibiza’s favourite haunted house on the hill, the 400 year old finca that is Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel.

VAMP-HALLOWEEN-POSTER

As per last year, organisers of the Halloween extravaganza Jillian Canney (FIX Ibiza) and Leanne Chilton (Ibiza Rocks) are pulling out the stops, diving head first into their cast iron cauldron of morbid mischief and saucy spells, their ultimate goal to trick and treat Ibiza’s naughtiest nocturnal creatures to a Halloween they may never forget.

Providing the spooky soundtrack throughout the night, DJs BONES, STRAY KITTEN, DAVID PHILLIPS, MISS CHADDERS and STEF SWINGLER are the demons in charge of the dancefloor.  Local duo SERENADE will also be creeping out of the shadows for a live (as opposed to undead) performance very much based on the event’s central theme of Halloween. All of the above combined and plenty of opportunity to bust one’s monster moves on the dancefloor.

Amongst other scary surprises being concocted for the party, beware of the Bloody Bathtub, where guests are invited to scream, shriek and even sing the night away in the SCAREOKE competition. Prize for the best crooner…

VAMP2012_JILL

Talking of prizes, Head Vamps Jill and Leanne will also be dishing out a few of those along the course of the evening for the best Halloween costumes, fancy dress pretty much obligatory for this particular party. Think vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries, demons, devils, spirits, shapeshifters, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, monsters, mummies, and mynaeds but don’t be scared, any other variety of spooky/inventive/topical/comedy fancy dress get up is welcome to join in the manky mix.

Keeping up the Halloween spirit, literally, local spiritualist and medium Lisa Chadderton (Garden of Light) will be conducting a series of one-on-one psychic readings throughout the evening. A limited number of time slots are available for booking and reservations are recommended.

18500_10151285179856535_1042068417_n

In charge of lighting and special effects in and around the hotel and its grounds, island experts, Aladdin Lights are back on board to help turn this Halloween into a veritable Nightmare on Pike St. Man behind that particular operation, Simon Hall promises an assortment of tricks and treats to make you turn in your grave.

As far as fodder goes, organisers have another bonus lined up for their gory guests with local catering company, Cook Ibiza stepping up to provide a Halloween BBQ with a difference at an additional cost of 20€ per head. With a menu very much in keeping with the theme, the Cook Ibiza team will be serving up a feast fit for the most bloodthirsty of critters from 9pm-11pm, with a selection of the finest cuts of meat, all sourced from local suppliers and accompanied by a selection of salads and other yummy Halloween treats. Advance booking is recommended.  http://www.grubclub.com/Cook-Ibiza

 530704_10151285227981535_2094719693_n

As a final point to note, and due to public demand, last year’s Star of the Halloween Show, The Gnarly Witch will also make a return visit to Pikes for Halloween, bringing with her a new addition to the proceedings, the HellBaby, offspring of the Gnarly one and spawned by Satan himself. Devilled Eggs, if you will…

All that, plus a whole lot more blood, guts and gore; a monster mash from 9pm till the last banshee wails.

Tickets are now on sale at 10€ and prior purchase is recommended for guaranteed entry. Price includes a trick or treat, a witch’s sup and a bloody good night out.

VAMP 

THURSDAY 31ST OCTOBER FROM 9PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES HOTEL

TICKETS 10€ (ADVANCE PURCHASE RECOMMENDED)

Still not scared enough? With the Ibiza family spirit in mind, we also suggest a quick stop off at Bar Grial this Halloween for a bit of Colin Peters before heading to the Boutique Hostal Salinas from 5am where the Halloween celebrations continue till God Knows What Time…

‘FREDDIE ROCKS IBIZA’ RECAUDA 4.500€ PARA THE MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo toma las riendas de los viernes en Ibiza Rocks House, mientras que the Sunday Roast con DJ Antz continúa hasta el 13 de octubre, fecha del cierre oficial 

Ibiza, lunes 16 de Septiembre (FIX Ibiza).- Freddie Rocks Ibiza, la cita anual de Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel que recuerda el aniversario del nacimiento del artista, recaudó el pasado 1 de septiembre 4.500 euros que irán destinados a The Mercury Phoenix Trust, la asociación que formaron en 1991, tras la muerte de Mercury, el manager y el resto de componentes de la banda que lideraba, Queen, y que trabaja por la lucha contra el sida en todo el mundo.

Por otra parte, y hasta el cierre oficial del legendario hotel, quedan por delante algunas citas importantes. Septiembre y octubre son buenos meses para disfrutar de la isla y desde Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel bien lo saben. La exitosa residencia del actor Idris Elba de los viernes llegó a su fin pero las noches no se han quedado vacías. Desde ahora y con Smokin’ Jo como alma de la fiesta, el viernes 20 de septiembre la celebración sigue, con grandes cabezas de cartel entre los que se encuentran Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carrol o Colin Peters, desde medianoche, en Ibiza Rocks House.

Continúa además una de las citas clásicas del Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. Los domingos, el mejor asado tradicional británico se sirve junto a DJ Antz Bryans y sus amigos. Por Play it by Ear ya han pasado figuras respetadas como Arthur Baker, Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin o Justin Field, entre muchos otros. Hasta el día de su cierre, el domingo 13 de octubre, cierre oficial de Ibiza Rocks Hpuse at Pikes Hotel, aún quedan cuatro citas imprescindibles. Volviendo al ‘closing’, matizar que será un día muy Rocky Horror Picture Show, con la proyección de este fabuloso musical y otras sorpresas.

Y cuando Ibiza se queda tranquila y los alrededores de Ibiza Rocks House oscurecen temprano, llega Halloween. El Hotel despierta de la siesta y celebra la segunda edición de Vamp Rocks la noche del 31 de octubre. La única condición: si no te disfrazas, no entras. Djs confirmados hasta ahora, incluyen a Stray Kitten y Bones. Próximamente, más info.

SEPTEMBER ROCKS THE HOUSE

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo takes over Fridays with this week’s guest DJs including Mark Ronson + Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) + more TBC

Sunday Roast/Play It by Ear Closing Date announced

‘Vamp Rocks’ confirms its return for Halloween

 

(FIX/IBIZA/PR/13 Sept 2013)

Who would have thunk it?! Here we are in September and according to the recent weather, summer definitely seems to be coming to a close. But up atIbiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, and as the sign at the front entrance says, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. And she ain’t singin’ just yet…

After a very successful run on Fridays, Idris Elba finally left our shores to shimmy his way up the red carpets of the international movie world, with the premier of his latest blockbuster, Pacific Rim. Accepting the challenge and the party gauntlet, Smokin’ Jo is the woman responsible for getting the weekend going through the month of September. Last week’s Guest DJs Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters blew the imaginary roof off the House, and this weekan equally smashing line up including none other than Ibiza Rocks House’s old chum Mark Ronson plus Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) joining Smokin’ Jo with yet another superstar yet to be announced.

Kicking off at midnight, just as We Are Rockstars comes to a close over at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Fridays have gone from strength to strength up at IRH over the summer and don’t look to have any notion of stopping just yet. Our kind of people, our kind of music, our kind of fun…

Moving on to the regular Sunday summer shenanigans and renowned party starter, DJ Antz Bryans, has wowed us all over the last weeks with a line up of guest DJs that have been nothing if not diverse- from much respected DJ Arthur Baker to  Eastenders’ star Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin and Justin Field amongst them. With five events to go, our main man is pulling out the sonic stops for this last month of events at the rock n roll hotel of choice. As for the simultaneous Sunday Roast– it’s the perfect choice for these September days; make sure you bring a big appetite. We recommend pre-booking your table (details below). As for the actual Closing Party onSunday October 13, we should probably mention that post-sunset, the evening will turn somewhat all Rocky Horror Picture Show with a screening of the legendary musical with the party continuing on into the wee small hours. Fishnets at the ready, time is fleeting and madness takes its toll…

Which brings us rather neatly to Halloween and, after last year’s successful scariness, we are very excited to announce the return of VAMP ROCKS on31 October. With tickets at 10€, price including a chalice of our finest mead plus a very scary surprise, this is guaranteed to be a night of shrieking good fun all round. No fancy dress, no entrance. DJs on the night include Stray Kitten, Bones and more TBC.

In other news, and following on from the recent Freddie Rocks Fundraiser on 1 Sept, it’s with an enormous amount of pride that we announce that the total raised so far for the Mercury Phoenix Trust at this year’s event is 4,500€ and counting! Massive thanks to all who got involved with the annual hirsute fundraiser- this is one doo that is becoming quite the institution at the house on the hill.

Flag Up the Dates!

FRIDAY 20 SEPT: Smokin’ Jo presents Mark Ronson, Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) plus Andy Carroll, Doorly and Ste-V-Something

FREDDIE’S PUTS THE FUN INTO FUNDRAISER!

pikes

ANNUAL EVENT FOR MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST CONFIRMED FOR SUNDAY 1 SEPT AT IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE

BOY GEORGE HOSTS EVENING DEDICATED TO LANCE LOUD IN AID OF HEP-C TRUST, THURS 22 AUG

PLUS 7WALLACE, PLAY IT BY EAR, EL FABULOSO, MUSTACHIO AND IBIZA ROCKS AFTER-PARTIES

(FIX Ibiza/12 Aug 2013):

With Ibiza Rockin’ at full tilt right now, and the island zooming towards the middle of August, it’s always good to know that there’s another world away hidden from the usual midsummer night’s madness, a rock n roll refuge right up there in the San Antonio Hills- yup, it’s Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. The legendary agro-rock hotel of choice is a place with its own special magic which, over the next weeks, hosts a plethora of events that, frankly, deserve a big, shiny medal for their diversity, solidarity and sheer fabulousness. Amongst them, a Pikes personal favourite- FREDDIE ROCKS IBIZA- which is back on Sunday 1 September, raising more funds for The Mercury Phoenix Trust in aid of HIV & AIDS patients.

Back for its third year, this is an event with particularly special significance for all at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, dedicated to the hotel’s favourite former ambassador, Queen’s Freddie Mercury. The aim of the party is to not only celebrate what would have been the 67th birthday of the musical legend-in-leotards but also, to raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the organization set up by the remaining members of Queen after the sad demise of their frontman. The Mercury Phoenix Trust has been raising millions to fight AIDS worldwide and here at Ibiza Rocks House, we like to add our tuppence worth in honour of the great man whose hedonistic history with Pikes has already gone down in the Ibiza annals.

Freddie Rocks Ibiza_Flyer2013

Due to public demand, this year the fundraiser begins at lunchtime by the Pikes Pool, with Antz & Co in charge of providing the daytime soundtrack for Freddie Rocks Ibiza, setting the mood for the frivolity as the first Freddie Lookie-Likees start pulling up to the sun loungers.Throughout the afternoon and heading into the night, also on the decks, a line up of local and international DJs including the schamazing 2MercuryBJs, Doorly, Wall of Sound’s Mark Jones, Stray Kitten, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters, most of whom have formed part of the Freddie’s Brigade since its beginnings, and all lining up to pay homage through tuneage.

As per every Freddie Rocks Ibiza event, big, hairy moustaches and/or other related Freddie get-up is pretty much essential- you know we love a theme. Fake Freddie facial hair will be available for purchase on entry, money also going to the charity. Last year’s event managed to raise some 4000€ for the cause; lets see if we can’t top that on Sunday 1 September and do dear Freddie proud on his heavenly cloud.

Important to note, guests also have the option to grab a table and fill up on the Ibiza Rocks House famous Sunday Roast pre- getting their groove on. Between that and the Poolside Menu, perfect fodder for pre-Freddie-Frivolity.

OTHER EVENTS COMING UP in AUGUST at IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE AT PIKES HOTEL:

IDRIS ELBA presents 7WALLACE

Friday 16 & 23 Aug

Idris Elba

Right up there with Ibiza’s Coolest Parties of 2013, 7Wallace has proved to be the party of choice for anyone with half a brain and, if they’re lucky, a direct line to the event’s exclusive guest list. Four down, two more to go, so far the star of stage, screen and now, the Ibiza Rocks House DJ booth, Idris Elba, has taken Fridays and the Ibiza Rocks after-parties to a whole new level. Most recognised for his starring roles in mega-series Luther and The Wire, British actor Elba is also currently premiering his new blockbuster, Pacific Rim, around the globe, squeezing in slots on the red carpets between his six summer appearances at Pikes. With special surprise guests including Pete Tong, Elba proves that, apart from his skills in front of the camera, he sure knows how to throw a party.

Idris Elba said: “The 7 Wallace parties are intimate and understated. There’s no huge club, just a really cool house party vibe. Ibiza Rocks House is perfect- unique, charming, full of character and seeped in music history. I’ve never experienced anywhere like it. It’s a hidden gem in the hills, a place where magical moments just happen naturally and interesting people are drawn in…”

It certainly doesn’t take much detective work to deduce that 7Wallace at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes is the party of choice. Case Closed.

EL FABULOSO 3rd BIRTHDAY

SAT 17 AUG, FROM 5PM

1001088_10152454162020616_1437678988_n

 Another summer special returns to the hotel in the next days, Spain’s notoriously naughty EL FABULOSO shindig, celebrating it’s 3rdanniversary on the White Island and brought to us by a good time girl with old skool class- Silvia Superstar and her fabulous crew. Silvia is, in her own right, a bit of a household name over on the mainland, as singer and musician, model, promoter and all round rock chick who plays an important role in Madrid’s music scene and also, pops up occasionally on MTV’s Alaska & Mario, a reality programme based on the life of one of Spain’s most influential female musicians and front woman of Fangoria, Olvido Gara Jova aka Alaska.

DJs joining la Superstar in the DJ booth this Saturday 17 Aug are confirmed as Carlos Areces (reputed Spanish actor who has recently starred in the films of both Almodovar and Alex de la Iglesia), Vinila von Bismarck (Spanish Burlesque Queen, singer and DJ) and Ibiza’s own Colin Peters (rockmeister extraordinaire, Ibiza Rocks resident DJ and the island’s sharpest dresser). If this year is anything like previous editions of El Fabuloso, we are in for one blast of a day/night. Spain is different- and so are its party people…

Entrance to this event is by way of guest list only, by sending names and contact details to the El Fabuloso Facebook page:

BOY GEORGE PRESENTS ‘LANCE LOUD- A DEATH IN AN AMERICAN FAMILY’

THURS 22 AUG, 7.30pm

543795_484723198280810_306056511_n

Back on the solidarity tip, Ibiza Rocks House is delighted to welcome music industry icon Boy George to Ibiza Rocks House on Thursday 22 August to present a multi-media insight into the life and times of  American TV star and underground hero Lance Loud. The aim of the event is to celebrate Loud’s ife whilst simultaneously raising awareness of HIV and hepatitis C co-infection, of which Lance Loud eventually died. The screening of Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family (2003, 60 min) is well worth a watch and will be followed by a discussion with Hepatitis C Trust patron Boy George. Reinforcing the notion of ‘what not to share’, this event touches  on a serious subject whilst keeping it very, very real.

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE/PIKES HOTEL presenta ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ por BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE MARTES 30 JULIO, 20,00h

EL ARTISTA REVELA EN EXCLUSIVA SU HOMENAJE DE 10 METROS A LA MÚSICA JAZZ

La exposición permanecerá hasta el 08 de agosto

 

(FIX/Ibiza 29 Julio 2013): Ibiza Rocks House en Pikes Hotel, sin duda reconocido como el Hotel de rock n roll por excelencia en esta isla de música, es el sitio donde desde sus comienzos hace 33 largos años, los músicos mas reconocidos se han alojado para relajar y/o seguir la fiesta con los más marchosos.

Pero dejemos de lado de momento el Rock n Roll. Nuestros oídos se aguzaron y notamos en las manos un hormigueo al ritmo de jazz cuando nos enteramos de lo último que tendrá lugar en Ibiza Rocks House este Martes 30 julio- la “vernissage” de ‘LEYENDAS DE JAZZ’, exposición del célebre artista holandés, BO WOODY WINTER. Una colección de 18 piezas representando la historia del jazz, que permanecerá expuesta la Suite de Freddie Mercury en el Pikes hotel hasta el día 8 de Agosto. Veréis, a veces el Ibiza Rocks rueda por un camino diferente y baila al ritmo de una melodía diferente…

La exposición, por primera vez en España, es la culminación de varios años de pintar sin parar. Años bañados en la sangre, el sudor y las lágrimas de Woody Winter. Además de los 16 retratos individuales, se verá su última obra maestra, un homenaje de 10 metros de largo a la música jazz y a sus héroes.

 

526446_424606600914961_66614430_n

Entre ellos: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding son algunos de los músicos retratados en JAZZ LEGENDS. Todos leyendas en sí, la música Jazz representada por los mejores.

Esta última exposición de Bo Woody Winter viene pisando los talones de su reciente exhibición en el Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, considerado el mayor festival de jazz internacional en el mundo. Allí, en 2011, Bo Woody Winter conoció a sus héroes-Marcus Miller y Toots Thielemans. Ambos ahora dueños de sus retratos realizados por Bo. Director del Art Show del Festival de Jazz del Mar del Norte, Wim van Zon también juega un papel importante en los exposiciones de Woody Winter en Ibiza y también presentará una introducción visual a las obras de Bo este mismo martes.

Aparte de su pasión inicial, el adicto de jazz, Winter también tiene una trayectoria profundamente arraigada en la escena de la música de baile de Holanda.Hace poco completó una segunda colección de pinturas bajo el nombre de DJ LEGENDS cuya revelación a un público exigente ya se ha confirmado para octubre 11 en Agroturismo Atzaró, Sant Joan. Como introducción a este segundo evento en octobre, este martes también incluirá la presentación de un retrato de la mano de la artista a las manos del DJ internacional Sarah Main.

998052_572250806150539_1992473975_n

Además de una introducción al artista y la presentación orgullosa de su gigantesca pintura 10 metros de largo, Ibiza Rocks House nos invitara a cócteles a partir de las 20,00h, que se sirve con la música de la mejor jazz de la Muriel Grossman Cuarteto. Y mientras que todo lo que está pasando, Bo le realizará una pintura en vivo en la Plaza Mayor de Ibiza Rocks House de una de la innegablemente más talentoso mujeres de jazz -Nina Simone.

Para los que quieren aún más golpecitos de pies, DJ Stray Kitten y Twisted Ace se pondran sus auriculares tocando una selección de swing, jazz, blues y soul.

Por último, en una adición muy agridulce para el evento, Bo Woody Winter dedicará la exposición “Jazz Legends ‘a su padre, que muy lamentablemente perdió su batalla con el cáncer hace solo unos dias. Por lo tanto, Bo se subastará su famoso ‘traje de colores “en Ibiza Rocks House y donar las ganancias a la investigación del cáncer. Gran traje, gran gesto. DEP Sr. Winter Sr.

En definitiva, un eventito muy guay para los enterados, para los amantes de jazz y de arte,sin olvidar a los sospechosos habituales- los” party people” de Pikes ( ya sabeís quienes sois)…Así que manos “Jazz” preparaditos, Ibiza Rocks Hotel se convierte en taberna clandestina americana “speakeasy”.

‘JAZZ LEGENDS’: AN ART EXHIBITION BY BO WOODY WINTER

pikes

VERNISSAGE TUES 30 JULY, 8PM

IBIZA ROCKS HOUSE @ PIKES HOTEL 

 EXCLUSIVE UNVEILING OF ARTIST’S 10M HOMAGE TO JAZZ GREATS

w/ MURIEL GROSSMAN QUARTET + DJ STRAY KITTEN

(FIX IBIZA/ 29 JULY 2013): Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel is undeniably the rock n roll hotel of choice on this, the Mediterranean island of music, a place where every musician worth his salt has laid his weary head and/or partied on with the best of them, ever since the beginning of its 33 year history. But Rock n Roll aside, our ears definitely pricked up and our jazzy hands began to tingle when we heard about the latest happening to take place up at Ibiza Rocks House thisTuesday 30 July.

See, sometimes, Ibiza Rocks rolls down a different road, dances to a different tune – and this Tuesday is a perfect example of what we mean, with the unveiling and vernissage of celebrated Dutch artist, Bo Woody Winter’s ‘JAZZ LEGENDS’ exhibition, a collection of 18 pieces depicting the History of Jazz and which will remain on show in Freddie’s Suite at the hotel until 8 August.

The exhibition, being shown for the first time in Spain, is a culmination of several years of endless painting, bound together by the blood, sweat and tears of Woody Winter and apart from the 16 individual portraits includes his latest masterpiece, a 30ft long homage to jazz and Winter’s own jazz heroes.

Amongst the names- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Nina Simone, Wes Montgomery, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Esperanza Spalding, James Spaulding – all legends in their field. Jazz represented by its finest figureheads and just some of the musicians portrayed in ‘Jazz Legends’.

This latest exhibition by Bo Woody Winter comes fresh on the heels of the artist’s recent show at the North Sea Jazz Festival, considered the biggest international jazz fest in the world. It was there in 2011 that Bo Woody Winter met his heroes -Marcus Miller and Toots Thielemans- both now have Bo’s portraits of them on their walls. North Sea Jazz Festival’s Art Show Director, Wim van Zon also plays an important role in Winter’s Ibiza exhibitions and will also present a visual introduction to Bo’s work this Tuesday. After its inauguration, the ‘Jazz Legends’ series will remain in Freddie’s Suite until 8 Aug.

Aside from the jazz junkie’s obvious first love, Winter also has a deeply rooted history in Holland’s dance music scene, and has recently completed a second collection of paintings under the moniker DJ LEGENDS, already confirmed to be revealed to the discerning public on October 11 at Agroturismo Atzaro, Sant Joan. As an introduction to this second event, this Tuesday’s vernissage will also include the presentation from the artist to international DJ Sarah Main.  But more on that later…

Back to Bo on the Rocks and the plan for this Tuesday. Apart from an introduction to the artist and the proud presentation of his mammoth 10 metre long painting, Ibiza Rocks House will be pulling out the stops and putting on the Ritz with cocktails from 8pm,  served to the tune of the finest jazz from the Muriel Grossman Quartet. Whilst all that is going on, Bo will also do a live paint in the hotel’s Plaza Mayor of one of jazz’s undeniably most talented females- Nina Simone.

For those who want even more, DJ Stray Kitten will be taking up the gauntlet/headphones in Freddie’s Suite playing a selection of swing, jazz, blues and soul.

Lastly, in a very bittersweet addition to the event, Bo Woody Winter will dedicate ‘Jazz Legends’ to his father, who very sadly lost his battle with cancer only last week. Bo will therefore be auctioning his famous ‘splatter suit’ and donating the proceeds to cancer research. Great suit, great gesture.

All in all, a very cool little happening for those in the know, for those who love jazz and those that love art and of course, not forgetting, the usual suspects- the Pikes party people- you know who you are…Jazzy Hands at the ready, Ibiza Rocks House turns speakeasy.

 

It ISN’T only Rock n Roll- but we love it!

Ibiza, 29 abril 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- Ibiza Rocks House en el hotel Pikes, el hotel boutique en el que se alojan las bandas que tocan semanalmente en Ibiza Rocks, se ha consolidado rápidamente como el patio de recreo de la flor y nata de la escena rock and roll más actual. Como cada año por estas fechas, el legendario estabecimiento en el que hace ya casi 30 años George Michael grabara el famoso video ‘Club Tropicana’, abre sus puertas para iniciar una nueva y potente temporada de verano en Ibiza. Será el domingo 5 de mayo con una fiesta de inauguración en la que celebramos el ya clásico ‘Sunday Roast’ del verano, con DJ Antz a los platos y talleres de arte gratuitos para niños (2-5 años) por el día. La fiesta continua por la noche con Dj Antz, Andy Dean, Johnny La Plage y Stray Kitten, animando ‘Freddie’s’, el bar que fuera la suite Marrakech – famosa por acoger la grandiosa fiesta de cumpleaños de Freddie Mercury.

Pero aún hay más. Aquellos que decidan alojarse en Ibiza Rocks House el domingo 5 de mayo obtendrán una noche extra completamente gratis(sábado o lunes). La oferta incluye un cocktail de bienvenida y una botella de vino para todas las reservas del ‘Sunday Roast’. Precios desde 159€ para dos personas, compartiendo habitación.

El bar restaurante del hotel, de nombre ‘Room 39’, ofrece una selección de versiones modernas de platos de siempre con un toque rock and roll, así como una excelente carta de ‘rocktails’. El domingo Ibiza Rocks House se convierte en punto de encuentro del verano con el ‘Sunday Roast’. Abierto los 7 días de la semana.

Ibiza Rocks House no sería lo mismo sin ‘Freddie’s’, la suite convertida en bar desde que en 2011 Andy McKay y Dawn Hindle (Ibiza Rocks) asumieran la gestión del legendario establecimiento, propiedad del carismático y octogenario Tony Pike, huésped de excepción con carácter permanente en la habitación 25. Ahora, es el hogar de las exclusivas after parties de los directos de Ibiza Rocks y de WAR, entre muchos otros saraos. Estar alojado en Ibiza Rocks significa estar automáticamente en la lista de invitados.

El que fuera el hotel más representativo del hedonismo en la década de los 80, con huéspedes como Grace Jones, Freddie Mercury, Julio Iglesias o Elton John, entre muchos otros, mantiene hoy como Ibiza Rocks House la misma esencia en cada una de las 25 habitaciones que magistralmente distribuyó Tony Pike en los 70, en un entorno que se mantiene tan rural como entonces. Toda una experiencia.

STRAY KITTEN COMES HOME…AND GETS READY TO RUMBLE

60063_449147585148727_325422832_n

Local girl Jillian Canney, goes back to her roots to DJ at The Rumble Club, Sandinos on New Years Eve
 
Canney, born and bred in Derry, has been a resident in Ibiza since 1997, where she DJs under the aka of Stray Kitten
 
(29th Dec2012/Derry/Fix Ibiza)
You can take the girl out of Derry but you definitely can’t take the Derry out of the girl. Wise words, and ones firmly backed by local woman, Jillian Canney, as she prepares for her DJ debut at city-centre watering hole, Sandinos, this Monday night, New Years Eve, as part of the line up at The Rumble Club, a night dedicated to good old rock n roll.
 
Under her DJ alter ego of Stray Kitten, Canney, who has been a full-time resident in the music mecca of Ibiza since 1997, plans to see in the New Year back in her home town with a soundtrack that can only be described as a blast to the past as we head to the future. 
 
Having twisted some arms earlier in the year to join the event’s DJ line up, alongside the club’s main dudes, DJs, promoters and local musicians Todd Gfeller and Danny McGeady (aka Hot Rod Todd and Beatnik Dan), Canney says she can’t wait to jive her way into the New Year, “Coming back home from Ibiza for Christmas just got even better; I’ve been wanting to play at The Rumble Club for ages so getting the chance to do it for New Years Eve is like an extra wee Christmas Box”.
 
The NYE event is the fifth such gathering organised by Gfeller and McGeady, who claim that The Rumble Club came about through “their desperate search for musical kicks”. Their music policy-  “the choicest slices from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s: the hottest jump jazz, rarest rockabilly, swinginest surf, deepest soul, good ol’ rock and roll and the dirtiest blues this side of the muddy Mississippi”- is just up the Stray Kitten’s street then.
 
Back in the Balearics, with her PR&Events Agency- FIX IBIZA- heading into its 6th year, Canney is responsible for such events as the Rock n Mola Retro Festival, as well as handling international PR for music brands including Ibiza Rocks, the live music phenomenon that has changed the face of Ibiza and its musical inclination since it’s conception back in 2005.
 
As an aside, Jillian’s grandfather, Patrick Canney, was a prominent figure in Derry’s music scene throughout the showband days, with the Patrick Canney Orchestra and The Derritones amongst his musical credits.
 
But back to the present and here’s to the future- rockin’ and rollin’ into 2013 at:
THE RUMBLE CLUB
@SANDINOS BACK BAR// WATER STREET//DERRY CITY
NEW YEARS EVE 31/12/12 FROM 9PM
