We’re taking the flavoursome funk far into the night as the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club takes over Old Granada Studios with acclaimed DJ, actor, presenter and funkster about town Craig Charles manning the decks, plus the New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band live!
Hot 8 Brass Band have epitomised New Orleans street music for two decades, infusing their performances with the funk and energy that makes their music loved around the world. As premier purveyors of roof raising, jazz infused, funk and hip hop fuelled marching band music, Hot 8 Brass Band can be found at the heart of a current fever for all things brass. Highlighted by their Grammy Award nomination for their striking second album, ‘The Life & Times Of… The Hot 8 Brass Band’, Hot 8 have received immense accolades from local, national, and international media outlets.
Joining this stellar lineup is Family Ranks. Tipped as the future of electronic soul with a hip-hop flavour, Family Ranks were described by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson as “life affirming music”, and have been championed by BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Target, Twin B, Trevor Nelson, A Dot, Ace and Jamz.
