Mama Jerk & the Lady Fingers with Yoshke & the Wolves and DJ VanToosh
May 22, 2015 @ 8:00 pm$5 – $8
Mama Jerk and the Lady Fingers have spent a year mixing all the music they love into a Reggae Dub Gypsy Chanson Blues Funk implosion….dense, fun, good to dance to and great to drink to! Last year saw them play Boomtown Fair and Secret Garden Party to great success. Wonderfully deranged with loads of soul.
Formed of musicians from SOAS, Yoshke and the Wolves are fresh on the scene and traversing the klezmer landscape with a spring in their step. Packed to the rafters with howling woodwind and scintillating strings, Yoshke sits amidst the pack, accordion in hand, marshalling your feet to the unquenchable rhythms and bidding them dance!
Resident DJ for UK festival staples of wonderfulness the Lizard Stage, the Hurly Burly Cafe and Greenpeace, VanToosh has been mesmerising music-lovers with her versatile and joyfully genre-hopping sets for years!
She’ll find your buttons and push them, tweak them, spin, pop or stroke them as the occasion requires, playing music for our bodies and souls, matching mood before beats, aiming straight for our joy.
