Cherry Popping Daddies brought their hats and chains and swinging hands for a zoot suit riot at Tempo. We even got to have a good chat to Steve (lead singer) and Bill (lead guitarist) before their show about touring and bad American weather 😉

To top it off, the surprise find of the night went to His Merry Men on support with a veritable batch of ska, funk and groove.

Pursuit Grooves

If you don’t follow live funk/soul or listen to JJJ you might have missed the Space Invadas stampede, so its about time you caught up to speed and find out what you missed out on! Support from Pursuit Grooves, bit like Lauryn Hill and Wyclef before they both lost their marbles.

For fans of the Dame Reggaeton nights, new comer Toca is here to fill in the lull between Dame gigs. The music policy is a little more relaxed with a sprinkling of commerical RnB and hiphop and house, but all still keeping with the tropical rhythms the Dame events are renowned for. Set in the pleasantly intimate space of The Aviary, Toca is aiming at becoming a monthly event.

Space Invadas are Katalyst and Steve Spacek with a funked out Gnarls Barkley kind of sound.. and a penchant for the Darkside. Supported by Koolism.
