On Saturday 7 April, local up and coming quartet, The Jess Hall Band, stopped by the Quba & Co store at McArthurGlen’s Swindon Designer Outlet to perform an afternoon set to kick off the summer. The gig was at Quba & Co, located in the East mall adjacent to other leading fashion brands including Superdry, Henri Lloyd and Nike.
Hailing from Swindon, the alternative folk group, sponsored by Quba & Co, were recognised in 2011 after their debut single ‘’Play Shy" featured on the BBC introducing playlist.
The four piece band which draws inspiration from the likes of Damien Rice and Bon Iver, offers something exciting, quirky and new to the British music industry and is set to storm the nation in 2012.
Quba & Co offers British nautical fashion clothing, jackets and accessory ranges for men and women. The store takes its inspiration from the traditional sail making businesses and applies the same traditional craftsmanship skills to their collections of clothing.
Nick Williams, Marketing Manager at McArthurGlen’s Swindon Designer Outlet said; “There is no better time than now to celebrate these two quintessentially British brands, with the onset of the Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – this is set to be the year of the Brits.
"We were honoured to host Jess Hall Band here at the centre. It was also a fantastic opportunity to showcase Quba & Co’s nautical themed fashion offerings – showcasing the latest Spring/Summer ranges."
Jamie Williams, Quba & Co. Store Manager, commented; “We were so excited to be styling the quartet in our latest trends and with the band’s popularity ever increasing it is an amazing opportunity to get our British brand out there as well.
"We feel the style of our clothing collection suits the band down to a T and highlights the effortless style that we represent. The crowd were really pleased with the band on Saturday; they had a lot of fun listening to them.”
Jess Hall Band said; "We’re really proud to represent a home grown British brand like Quba & Co and enjoyed playing at the Desinger Outlet. Our music style suits all tastes and we look forward to performing some of latest songs."
