Sure is Funky : Heatwave
Fri 16 Sept| Victoria Stakes | 8pm-1am
That was one hot hot summer.
So let’s make it last one more weekend shall we?
We’re going to drop all of the finest funk, disco and soulful summer tunes we can lay our hands when we take over the top floor of the Victoria Stakes on Friday 16 September.
And we’d love you to join us.
Sure is Funky will be returning to our vinyl-only roots with everything from Northern Soul to some Hip Hop classics, taking in the funkiest 70s and 80s basslines and breakbeats along the way.
Tickets £12.50 + bf.
Bring your summer tans and your hand-held fans.
Spread the word. Tell your mates.
Dust down your dancing shoes.
We all need to smile
We’ve been running parties for the last five years or so in North London playing a mix of funk, northern, disco, hip hop and rare groove.
We played our first party in Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre (where we both work) expecting maybe 50 or 60 friends to come along out of a sense of duty.
But we were delighted to be proved wrong.
When we sold out the Supper Room on that first night we knew we were on to a good thing. And we’ve been putting on parties ever since.
We love the music we play. But what really makes our parties work is the people who come. An amazing crowd who all have one thing in common – a desire to dance and have a good time.
And for that, we thank you.
