After two long years, the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club is back with a bang at Band on the Wall, taking over our brand new stage and newly renovated venue.
Join us as we take the flavoursome funk and sun-kissed soul far into the night with acclaimed BBC 6 Music DJ, actor, presenter and funkster about town Craig Charles manning the decks, plus the Allergies and Andy Cooper performing live.
Since forming in 2012, The Allergies have made it their mission to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dancefloor. Both skilled turntablists in their own right and known for their 45 only vinyl sets, the duo of DJ Moneyshot & Rackabeat first bonded over their love of classic hip-hop and beats, then decided to pool their knowledge and skills into making their own music.
“The Allergies are neck deep in the world of scratchy samples… This is truly funk and soul for the 21st century!” – Craig Charles
A standing show. Part of Manchester Jazz Festival.
