A Rafters Reunion!
DJs – the original jazz funk tastemakers:
Colin Curtis, John Grant, Bill Wildman & Hewan Clarke.
We celebrate the hottest top import disco funk and jazz club in the North and the music that emanated from it.
From 1978 – 1983, the Manchester cellar club was packed to the rafters every Saturday with DJs playing soul, jazz and funk fusion.
Expect: Roy Ayers, Debra Laws, Mandrill Kleeer, Sharon Redd, Starpoint, Joe Sample, Crusaders, Lonnie Liston Smith, Players Association, Airto, Al Hudson, Gap Band, Rick James, Jean Carn, Teena Marie, Mystic Merlin, Atmosfear, Deodato, Glenn Jones, Kenny Burke, Terumasa, Hino, Alphonse, Mouzon Maze, Lenny White, Candido, Dexter Wansel.
Relive those memories from a live defining club. Gonna be a big thing!
