Line-up /Benji Boko
Hackney Colliery Band
Beats In Abundence
We, Like You are pleased to present a stacked line up to start the Summer!
Boko describes his show as "on the fly, off the cuff, completely improvised live remixing." Were talking Mozart vs. Missy, Dizzee vs. Depeche Mode and Snoop vs. Simpsons, just to name a few. Crowds are being transported from the 'norm' into a world of pure imagination.
A carefully selected, strategically planned series of samplers, sequencers and switches form the backbone of Boko's arsenal. A complex set-up to say the least but ready to take out any dancefloor.
The Hackney Colliery Band couldn't peform last month but we wanted them so much we have managed to secure them to play for May.
Formed in 2008 out of a desire to play music that appealed to the feet as much as to the ears, the Hackney Colliery Band is east London's unique take on the brass band. Featuring trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and marching percussion, the band are totally acoustic and yet able to blow the roof off any room.
In support will be the We, Like You regulars bringing their usual big party vibes.
