LIVE LONGE: Every Friday at Hockley Social Club


Every weekend expect our own Live Lounge to take over the warehouse, welcoming even more of the city’s band to take stage! This week we have KOBLA


Raised in a Christian household to Ghanaian parents, Kobla (a name given to Tuesday-borns in his native tounge, Ewe), cites Gospel, Afrobeat and Jazz as fundamental influences to his style.

Since  graduating from university in 2016, Kobla’s pursuits in both engineering and music have taken him across the UK; meeting and connecting with musicians and artists from various backgrounds and influences.

The global Covid-19 pandemic presented numerous challenges but also unique opportunities. With live shows coming to a halt, Kobla spent much more of his free time practicing and developing new skills – one of them being music production. ‘Launch’ (released 31st July 2020), the debut single from Kobla the Expression, is the embodiment of this time period.


All this will go alongside our offering of award-winning street food, DJ’s playing all day and night and 3 bars, including a dedicated cocktail bar and a newly kitted-out Artum bar.
