Old Skool Jazz Funk, Soul & Dance Appreciation Society are proud to present: Massive Waves of Britfunk with a Splash of Stateside Soul!
Featuring Intergalactic Funk Masters Atmosfear, Stateside Soul Man Big Brooklyn Red and last but no way least Jazz Funk Legends Beggar & Co also featuring DJs Stumps & Lee with special guest DJ Jeff Young.
Atmosfear are a UK based JazzFunk band from the early 1980s who along with their contemporaries Level 42, Incognito, Light of the World, Hi-tension, Savanna, Central Line, and a few others were the foundation and heart of the Brit-Funk movement.
Big Brooklyn Red’s self-released album, Foreword, doesn’t seem like the work of a neophyte. The tones of this album are deep and mature. His vocal skills are complimented by soulful, organic tracks that resonate with his passionate and powerful voice.
Beggar & Co will be bringing a nine/ten piece band to the Leas Cliff Hall. Kenny Wellington, Dave Baptiste and Breeze McKrieth will play a set of their music from the last thirty years. Songs from the band they first formed many years ago Light of the World, as well as Beggar & Co material including: London Town, Pete’s Crusade and national chart hits Time/I’m So Happy, Somebody Help Me Out and (Mule) Chant No 2.
On top of all this there are also the classics from the Kenny Wellington/ Richard Bull produced Inner Voices CD such as Bahia and Blue Sky Day, the band will also perform tracks from their most recent CD Sleeping Giants including the already much loved track Victoria Park
