Riddim!

Before we get round to the next Jumpin’ With Stagger Lee at Ernest on April 29th, there’s the small matter of Riddim!

Taking its cue from a night of the same name I put on at Brixton Windmill sometime in the last decade, Riddim! is a new night hoping to encompass a broad range of Jamaican music – from rocksteady to roots, dub to dancehall – in a non-elitist way, so that people who don’t consider themselves ‘reggae fans’ can come and dance to storming tunes by everyone from Alton Ellis to Althea & Donna, John Holt to Ini Kamoze, The Eternals to Sean Paul. But the selections will be all killer, no filler so the aficionados will love it too.

The night is at Ernest (of course!) on April 1st, and I’ll be joined by Rob Heron (Tea Pad Presents) and Billy Lyre (Ska’d For Life!). It’ll run from 9pmĀ  – 2am and it’s absolutely FREE!

There’s a Facebook events page here.

So put on your dancing shoes and BOOGALOO!!

Jumpin’ #2

A bit late with this – Christmas malaise and all that – but I’m back at Ernest next weekend (Saturday 21st) for the second Jumpin’ With Stagger Lee.

It’ll be the same excellent blend of soul, rhythm & blues, reggae, funk, gospel, ska, psych and such as usual, and this time we’ll be joined by the mighty Giovanni Spatuzzi.

And I’ll definitely be playing this
