The Forum presents:
A Royal Bedding Fundraiser : Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind
Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind + Night Without Sleep
Entry Requirements: 16+
With May 19th being a very special day in our British calendar, we felt that this was an opportunity to raise awareness and some money for the homeless in Tunbridge Wells.
We have a special guest to play the show as well.
Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind plus special guests.
A donation of the profits will be given to local charities that support the homeless including Porchlight & Winter Shelter who do tremendous work to support those without a home in the local area.
Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind
“With his latest incarnation a hefty dose of voodoo has been stirred into the pot of Jones’ own particular sonic gumbo, and it’s a heady brew.” – The Arts Desk
"Jones is clearly in the business of thwarting expectations; no bad thing whenthe group are as good as this…….It’s controlled chaos and The Righteous Mind deliver on all levels tonight" - Louder Than War
“Roll over the Revue, it's time for The Righteous Mind” – MOJO
“Seductive, slow burn narco rock” – The Independent
"Channelling the moody atmospherics of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds... Boil Yer Blood ramps up the raunch with whisky-soured hellaciousness to spare" – Classic Rock
Singer/guitarist Jim Jones’s distinctive musical history has spanned several incarnations including The Jim Jones Revue, Black Moses and Thee Hypnotics.
The latest manifestation of his ever-evolving sonic vision, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind were in the studio recording a new collection of songs a mere five days after the Revue’s final sold out show at London’s Forum, setting course for darker musical waters in search of rare and exotic beasts.

Night Without Sleep
Night Without Sleep are amazed they are still alive. They have fully embraced this lease of life in becoming an acoustic duo comprised of Mad Dogs – Wolff Williams (vocals/guitar) and Jim (Funboy) Loosley (guitar/vocals). Trying hard not to let themselves fall into any one genre of music, they are renowned for their dramatic live shows with their close to the mark lyrics and the ability to get under the skin of the listener, marking them out as true artistic performers. Sitting comfortably away from the safety of uplifting pop they offer songs that are interesting, edgy, full of emotion and very different to anything else you will see. They are currently in the studio recording a couple of EPs which is about time.
