Since they began promoting nights at the Horse and Groom just 7 months ago the Unwanted Family have built a solid fan base amongst the East London crowd. With DJ gigs picking up nicely all over London there is no better way to say thanks and no greater pleasure for them than to run the upstairs at the Horse & Groom presents... ‘The Revenge’ party.
The Unwanted Family will be providing the perfect accompaniment to the downstairs merriment with their multi-genre style and party atmosphere. As ever at an Unwanted night you’ll be hearing huge funk and soul sounds, rare grooves and of course those big house belters. DJs at the helm: Franklin (soul/motown), Thomas James (deep house/disco/tech), Chris Gee (deep grooves/house/disco), Mr Venom (funk/hip-hop/breaks), and Rocksteady Freddie (soul funk bangers/deep disco). The Unwanted Family are purveyors of a unique party style, so go and say hi, you’ll be glad of it. http://www.facebook.com/unwantedfamily
