Irish multi-instrumentalist Abbacaxi (Thomas Garnett) has rescheduled his show live at The Workman’s Club Cellar from December 10th, 2021 to February 25th, 2022.
Dubliner Abbacaxi draws on his love of jazz, funk, and proper songwriting harks back to a time when dance music was made by real musicians but comes with very modern dynamics. Recent single 'More Than I Need' followed on from 2020's impressive 'Used To Keep Me Warm'. Fun fact: Garrett's performer moniker is an intentional misspelling of the Portuguese word for pineapple. He's a member of the Loah and Fehdah family.
Playing instruments was one of the few things that a young Garnett was interested in outside of school. He started on drums, and soon joined all sorts of teen bands. The energy of rock rhythms captivated him at first, but it was the beauty of melody that eventually turned his ear.
Now performing on his own, an Abbacaxi live show takes you on a trip with plenty of emotional peaks and troughs. Playing instruments and synths, looping from a library of his own sounds and singing, he goes from trip-hop to house. There are floaty-light summer grooves with airy drumming and heavenly vocals.
Bubbling deep house rhythms are stuffed with organic sounds, and funky bass riffs make for steamy late-night grooves. They are songs rather than tracks and are all infused with love, warmth, and balmy synths. The subtle but seductive vocals add to the classy good-time feelings.
