Simmerdown Lounge on Friday 24th February 2017
As a new initiative of the Simmer Down CIC, Simmerdown Lounge features local and national artists and builds momentum for the return of the much loved Simmer Down Festival, which subject to funding, will be back in Handsworth Park on Sunday 23rd July 2017.
Launching this special initiative is reggae’s foremost roots and culture artists: Michael Prophet, backed by Birmingham’s stellar musicians from the Friendly Fire Band. Blessed with a ‘crying’ tenor voice, Michael Prophet has a catalogue of chart topping hits and is recognised for his enthralling stage presence and highly entertaining live performances.
Support on the night comes from ‘Britain’s Got Reggae’ 2016 winner: Claire Angel and Birmingham’s rising sensation Leesha Mac. Music supplied by Young Culture and the roots reggae ambassador: Tony Roots (Newstyle Radio) and your host and compere is Mr. Ranking (Gatecrash) from the Legends of Legends fraternity.
Come and join us in-a roots and culture Simmerdown party vibe and help us to build Simmer Down Festival 2017!
