MUSIC | THE FUNK & SOUL SHOW WITH THE LBJBS | FRIDAY 20 JULY

Expect a great atmosphere, a selection of the best soul and funk music from the last 40 years.

 

The night will feature two headline sets from the Bristol-based supergroup the LBJBs. They celebrate the music of the JBs, James Brown, Bootsy Collins, and Sly and the Family Stone. The LBJBs formed in late 2014 and formed the house band at The Leftbank, the uber-cool Bristol venue, where they now host the hugely popular Thursday jam. Playing heavy funk tunes with their own twist, their high energy performances have secured them performances with heavyweights on the funk scene such as Craig Charles.

DJ Heavy Stylus plays funk, soul, and breaks selected from his enviable catalogue of records. An explosive amalgamation of Jamaican roots, hip hop beats, heavy soul breaks and blaxploitation ghetto-funk, he’s resident DJ at The Angel in Exeter, and has played at festivals such as Aeon.

‘Amore – My Tribute to Love’, is the renowned violinist’s tribute to his love for music, and his love for both of his families; his wife and children, and of course for his Johann Strauss Orchestra, who he has performed with for over 30 years. It follows on from the release of his album ‘Amore’, which features his own versions of classic love songs, from the worlds of popular and classical music.

The unforgettable concerts that take place in André’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands are a sight to behold. Set against the incredible backdrop of the medieval town square, fans flock annually from all corners of the world to watch André perform with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests. The concerts are packed full of humour, fun and emotion for all ages.

Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins hosts the presentation, interviewing fans and soaking up the joyous atmosphere that bursts right through the cinema screen – as well as catching an exclusive chat with André the moment he steps off stage.

MUSIC | DR FEELGOOD | FRIDAY 3 AUGUST

Britain’s best loved R&B band was formed in 1971, and is known for songs such as She Does it Right, Roxette, and Milk and Alcohol, which reached the top ten.

Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s, Dr. Feelgood remains one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world. Their energetic live performances secured them a following on the seventies London pub rock circuit.  The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the U.K. charts.

Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Milk and Alcohol, Roxette, Back in the Night, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator – which gave the group their first gold record.

The current line up features the rhythm section Kevin Morris on drums and Phil Mitchell on bass, both 29 years in the band and Steve Walwyn on guitar who has been with the band for 23 years. Vocalist Robert Kane (formerly of the Animals) is the most recent addition – joining in 1999 after the tragic death of Lee Brilleaux. The band continues to tour extensively throughout the World and enjoy a loyal following at home and abroad.

“From Bill Drummond to Bob Geldof, Paul Weller to Joe Strummer, many have testified to the quartet’s transformative effect.” – The Guardian.

Support from poet Mike Garry and local music duo Grace Gillan and Jake Miller.

MIKE GARRY

Mike Garry’s gritty poems won him a collaboration with New Order in New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2014. His work has been championed by Philip Glass,  having worked with him since 2014 at concerts in U.S.A and Europe. His Ode To St. Anthony, a poem dedicated to the Factory Records boss Tony Wilson, put to classical music by the composer Joe Duddell to great success.  Mike has toured with John Cooper Clarke since 2011 opening shows for him in the UK, Ireland and The United States.

GRACE GILLAN AND JAKE MILLER

Former lead singer of Papa Le Gal, Grace Gillan now works with the soul group Hot Java and reggae guitarist Jake Miller.

MUSIC | DJ YODA | SATURDAY 4 AUGUST

special warm-up show before Bestival for the multi-award-winning hip-hop DJ and producer, who headlines festivals and clubs around the world.  

 

No typical club DJ, his interests lie in finding fresh and unique ways to bring turntables out of the club and getting involved in bespoke collaborations. Working with classical composers to neuroscientists; brass bands to film directors; Dr Dre to Dame Evelyn Glennie; Banksy to Mark Ronson; BBC Radio 4 to the BFI, he reinvigorates his craft with wry invention and humorous intent.

Internationally respected for his turntablism, he was Dr Dre’s first choice to record a guest mix on his inaugural Beats 1 show for Apple Music in 2015, and was one of a select band of artists to perform at Banksy’s pop-up Bemusement Park, Dismaland.

His eclectic series of How to Cut & Paste mixtapes offer a uniquely British take on hip-hop music and culture. DJ Yoda pioneered a new form of audio-visual entertainment, unifying hands-in-the-air clubbing with a night at the movies, chopping and splicing classic movies with the same exceptional style that he repurposes music samples. One of the first DJs to master the art of re-scoring classic films, in 2014 he was commissioned to create DJ Yoda Goes to the Sci-Fi Movies as part of the BFI’s Sonic Cinema event. BBC Radio 6 Music gave him the platform to make history with the world’s first audio-visual radio mix, and, as part of their BBC Music Day, Radio 4 invited Yoda to mash-up the entire station, remixing The Archers, The Shipping Forecast, John Humphries and more in one of his most sublime and surreal adventures yet.

 

Ever pushing the boundaries of live audio-visual performance his latest journey into popular culture – DJ Yoda: A History of Gaming – premiered at the London Film Festival on the UK’s largest screen at the prestigious IMAX, charting best loved and most fondly remembered games from the early 1980s to the present.
