Funkshy + Theo Bard Trio + Dutty Moonshine
February 5, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - February 6, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Funkshy have honed an eclectic, multi-layered sound that fuses Funk, Dub, World, Reggae, Soul. Chilled out soul with a funky skip, a peppering of blues, eastern and reggae influences creating a whole new kind of groovy rhythmic London funk.
The ‘live’ format is a 9 piece band, fronted by three vocalists and includes some of London’s finest musicians, led by drummer/producer Tansay Omar.
A leading figure in the East London music scene, Theo Bard is a skilled lyricist and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, violin, bass), with intelligent lyrics and a deft ear for melody. His songs celebrate love, friendships and good times, the thrills and spills of busking in London’s markets, and his legendary Woodburner music nights in Hackney.
Taking inspiration from the now well-known genre of electro-swing, Dutty Moonshine have wrestled it to the ground and twisted it into something even more bassy, crazy and festival-ready! These guys never disappoint and have some of the freshest swing sounds known to the music world right now!
“Absolutely phenominal masters of unique mixes that some how can grab acoustic brilliance of the Gypsy and Swing world and slam them screaming into the 22 nd century. For a slice of the future with a digit in the past get these guys”
