Night of Live Funk & Soul at The Maze

Thought we'd try something new. No idea how good it will be but worth a try.

Described as:
"**FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN NOTTINGHAM** Funk Nation - a dedicated LIVE funk and soul night

More information can be found here:
http://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Nottingham/The-Maze/Funk-Nation-Nottingham/11887232/


Tickets are £5.50 including booking fee advance, may be available on the door for £7 but no guarantee. The Maze is a small venue at the back of The Forest Tavern on Mansfield Road. Doors open 8.30pm. Runs until 1am and last entry 11pm.

 

"Funk Nation brings something to the table that’s missing from live music at the moment, a dedicated LIVE funk and soul night where you can groove away to the best in Jazz, Funk, Motown, Northern Soul, Rare Groove, Acid Jazz and more. With house band, the nationally renowned Funk Soul Collective, playing hits from the likes of Ray Charles, Etta James, Stevie Wonder and James Brown, and DJs spinning the best in these genres all night long, they are joined by great bands, both local, and from up and down the UK. With tickets just £5 in advance, Funk Nation brings back the sounds of eras gone by.

FEATURING SPECIAL GUESTS, FAT DIGESTER!

Fat Digester are a music based collective that at times include dancers, rappers and visual artists. They fuse fun and social comment in a blend of Jazz, Funk, and Hip Hop. An incredible live band, they have proved their worth on both the alternative festival circuit and at venues across the UK and abroad. The act is dynamic, energetic and engaging, definitely not for the faint hearted!"

    June 22, 2013

  • Emma B

    The man at the Forest Tavern tells me the tickets are just £5 on the door as I had hoped - that women are always right, and that it is a legal requirment to wear funky dance shoes to be allowed in (!)
