LEVEL 1 - DAYTONER (Live) - Band on stage at midnight
Daytoner have become familiar on funk and soul stages having played over 30 UK festival stages in 3 years plus many special events such as the public opening of the Blue Whale exhibit in The Natural History Museum and 6 support shows for The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club nights across the UK. Indeed, Craig Charles has been the band’s main supporter after inclusion of ‘I Get By’ on Vol 5 of The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club compilation LP, regular plays on his BBC 6 Music and Radio 2 shows including singles from their LP ‘Off The Hook’ plus a Daytoner ‘Trunk of Funk’ 30 minute DJ mix. The band’s debut album has also received acclaim from both DJs, radio presenters and fans of classic funk and northern soul alike with bloggers, record stores and reviewers heaping praise on the LP.
Craig Charles said on BBC6 in July “seeing him perform with his live band is a revelation” so prepare for a unique journey starting with twists on familiar hip-hop samples through to soulful stomps and frenetic floor-fillers, including tracks from their new LP, all delivered with the sheer soul power of Lucy Richard’s vocals, supported by live drums, bass, trombone, sax and keys with Moss Daytoner on DJ / Producer duty.
Bottom line is, this band are Hot people and you will dig!
Then on LEVEL 2 (The Funk Pit), Legendary 45 Slinger SNOWBOY + very special guest MO MANLEY (Soul Summit, Chicago) invite you to have a rare funkified good time as they deliver a hand picked selection of the absolute finest in vinyl floor fillers and killers ALL NIGHT LONG.
