Telstar Funk and Soul presents FEEL THE NEED!!!!
09/11/2019 - 8pm-1am
Live music from some of the north wests best in funk, soul, disco and jazz DJ’s and a LIVE BAND!!
Telstar Funk & Soul:
Chris Griffiths, Preston based Funk, Soul, Motown, Northern, Discos vinyl DJ holding residencies in Preston & Manchester, he has spent over a decade playing across club nights in Preston covering a range of genres but in the last 2 years has started to put his obsession in vinyl collecting to some use and bringing some old school classics back to the masses. Expect to hear him spinning tunes from artists such as Stevie wonder, James Brown, Kool & The Gang, Ottis Redding to name just a few.
As an enthusiast for the music he was brought up on with his dad playing northern soul events in the late 60’s as Telstar Disco, Chris is striving to get the sounds back to the clubs for those who lived through the movement that was Northern Soul and for a new crowd who love the timeless tunes, he is the organiser of the event as well as the first DJ opening the night.
A 5 piece funk band from Manchester. Atomic Brass have high energy and always get the place jumping!
Their style of music is based around taking popular tunes from different genres and fusing them together with Jazz and Funk grooves and adding New Orleans-style influences. Originally taking direction from the music and styles of American groups Lucky Chops, YoungBlood Brass band and Too Many Zooz, Atomic Brass is now moving on in its own, unique direction. They have previously supported the world famous Hot 8 Brass band & Too Many Zooz and have been performing at Live music events and festivals across the country.
Chris has a solid reputation as as one of Preston’s finest when it comes to all things groovy!! As a regular at Beatherder Festival this year playing at Trash Manor, Gay Pari, Bubbler Gump, The Snug & Northern Green! Chris has also appeared at Glastonbury Festival at Unfair Ground, and on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show.
Through years of collecting vinyl he has been known to style everything from funk, soul, hip hop, jazz, afrobeat, reggae, latin, broken beat, house and techno. So expect an eclectic mix of wonderfulness as Chris headlines the evening!!
Music Genres: 70s, Disco, Funk, Jazz, Soul
