Galactic Funk Militia / Big Smoke Family / Special Terry
December 2, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - December 3, 2017 @ 2:00 am£7
21ST CENTURY FUNK + DANCE + HIP HOP + ROCK
An audacious blending of flavours of bands like P Funk, Rage Against the Machine, Basement Jaxx, Jimi Hendrix, Jill Scott, Leftfield and the Prodigy.
Galactic Funk Militia has a massive stage presence and an even bigger sound. Their infectious tunes swagger with impulsive groove, explode with horns and wailing electric guitar, and seduce you with sensuous liquid synth. The sound is completed by quick-fire rap and the divadelic lead vocals of Amber Kuti.
Unifying funk, rock, dance and hip-hop, this band of rebels brings you the greatest show in this galaxy or any other!

The Big Smoke Family is a collective led by drummer Roy Pfeffer. The band draw from the spirit of New Orleans funk & Mardi Gras Indians, infusing their driving horn lines with heavy beats and live scratching. Their sound is unique and their groove infectious.
The BSF Members have played with the likes of Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Joss Stone and Tom Jones and are already making serious waves on the UK music scene. In addition to their residency at Ronnie Scott’s bar, the band also regularly appear at some of the UK’s hottest festivals.
DJ Special Terry is an old skool, top drool, vinylistic groove selecta who eschews tech media, social media, memes and other 21st century follies and sticks to the beauty and beastliness of real choons, one after another, designed for dance floor ecstasy, jiggy jiggy mayhem, bouncing ballistic ballerinas and mash-up rave parties!!!
The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm.
