News, events and insights at Caffe Portico.
Liteside are a six-piece swing, Latin and party band. “We call our music Latin jazz for people who don’t think they like jazz. It’s jazz-based but on the lighter side. We play sweet, foot-tapping tunes and smooth ballads for you to dance and bop around to. From swing to boogie-woogie, rock & roll, classic pop such as the Beatles, Latin and jazz rock.”
ACOUSTIC SOUL-INFUSED FOLK POP
Singer songwriter Ethan Ash began studying music and playing guitar at age six years and has been passionate about music ever since. He played his first solo gig age 12 and went on to perform solo and front a teenage band which played all over the UK before he eventually decided to pursue a solo career.
Soon after Ethan released his debut solo EP he supported Seth Lakeman and Nick Harper, and toured extensively. The debut single from a second EP, ‘No Early Nights’, was chosen as an iTunes Single of the Week.
Ethan supported Ed Sheeran on part of his 2011/2012 sell-out UK tour.

ALL MONEY RAISED GOES TO OXFAM
Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 6 years on we’re still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October.
The great thing about Oxjam is the diversity of the events on offer – from our multi-venue Takeover events, to sponsored busks on top of mountains – we’ve seen it all. Over the years we’ve gained several high profile celebrity supporters, including Jarvis Cocker, Fatboy Slim, Damon Albarn, Hot Chip and many more. But at its heart Oxjam is still a grassroots festival, with thousands of volunteers celebrating music in their local communities by organising their own gigs in support of Oxfam GB.
