The Funk ‘N’ Soul Club with presenter, DJ, actor and funkster Craig Charles manning the decks ’till 3am. Featuring a full live set by Nick Pride & The Pimptones, expect this to be one of the Autumn’s biggest and most beautiful nights of dancefloor-filling tunes
Based in Newcastle, The Pimptones are the funkadelicious brainchild of Nick Pride, a jazz guitarist with a passion for Hip-Hop, Soul, and most of all Breakbeat Funk.
The band’s super-tight sound came the old fashioned way – from constant gigging, jamming, rehearsing and refining. From raw and funky beginnings, their style has developed to include Soul, Jazz and R&B influences. From supporting Candi Staton and Youngblood Brass Band, to playing at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival, the groups reputation has grown since its birth in 2007. Formed with drummer Oz Cassidy from Nick Pride’s previous band, Rubberneck, The Pimps musicians also perform with Smoove and Turrell, Voice of The North and Andy Champion.
TICKETS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE IN PERSON FROM THE BAND ON THE WALL BOX OFFICE. BOX OFFICE OPEN FROM 5PM.
