229 THE VENUE in London, United Kingdom
Martin Stephenson & The Daintees
Martin Stephenson formed The Daintees in his teens with the deliberate intention of showcasing a broad range of musical styles. Their debut single 'Roll on Summertime' was issued by Newcastle’s Kitchenware Records in 1982. It became 'single of the week' in Sounds Magazine. Successful and critically acclaimed albums 'Boat to Bolivia', 'Gladsome, Humour and Blue', 'Salutation Road' & 'The Boy's Heart' followed over the decade.
Martin Stephenson and the Daintees have performed alongside John Martyn, Aztec Camera, Hothouse Flowers, The Go-Betweens, Del Amitri, Jania Ian, Melissa Etheridge, Indigo Girls and many more.
229 is a multi-purpose entertainments venue which first opened its doors in 1965 as part of International Students House (ISH). The Charity opened essentially as an accommodation centre supporting British and overseas students whilst they studied at different Universities in London. Since then the venue has played host to, many gigs, awards ceremonies, club nights, weekend festivals and music related events. All profit is ploughed back into the Charity and helps funds our Scholarship programmes for students from less advantaged countries.
