An Evening with Dave Robinson

8pm (Doors 7.30)

"IF IT AIN'T STIFF  .... IT AIN'T WORTH A F@#!" . Dave Robinson the irrepressible, enigmatic co-founder of Stiff Records is coming to The Kitchen Garden!!

Dave befriended and managed Van Morrison, was Road and Tour manager for Jimi Hendrix, and also did major tours in the US with Eric Burden & The Animals, The Young Rascals and the Vanilla Fudge. He partied and clubbed with The Grateful Dead, Janice Joplin, The Who, Jim Morrison and The Doors.


Returning to London he managed Brinsley Schwartz, Graham Parker, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmonds, Ian Dury and Elvis Costello.

With Jake Riviera, he started Stiff Records and signed The Damned, Motorhead, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Tracey Ullman, The Plasmatics, Jona Lewie, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Kirsty McColl, The Box Tops, The Adverts, Lene Lovich, The Pogues, Madness and many more. Eventually he headed up Island Records where he oversaw the careers of U2, Robert Palmer, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and many more.

Dave Robinson is a naturally engaging person - he has to be to have had such an amazing life.  This is the first time he’s agreed to appear in public to tell us some of his stories.  It’s going to be a memorable evening with the possibility of a special guest musician or two showing up....Don’t miss it!
