We’re taking the flavoursome funk far into the night as the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club returns to Band on the Wall with acclaimed DJ, actor, presenter and funkster about town Craig Charles manning the decks, plus The Hempolics performing live.
The Hempolics are out to put those organic rootsy vibes back into music; with their fat radio-friendly hooks, bumping soundsystem bass and a wanderlusty, ineffably real sound all of their own.
Over years of recording top international talent The Hempolics enigmatic leader, Grippa Laybourne, has been carefully honing his own masterpiece and selecting a gang armed and dangerous enough to execute it. The Hempolics caused an instant stir with their single ‘Serious’ which hit number one in the UK reggae charts and was playlisted on Massive Attack’s BBC takeover.
