KAMAO QUINTET Live band www.facebook.com/KamaoQuintet
A Swing band taking more inspiration from traditional Manouche and Romani (gyspy) music, with particular references to the World’s beloved Django Reinhardt. A particularly beautiful and moving form of music but with a driving force of an all-encompassing swing-beat, and “killer” jazz feel. Not your average Swing band folks… KAMAO QUINTET get the hearts a fluttering and the heels a smoking’.

GENERAL PATTEN Dj Set
Influenced by his parent’s record collection and inspired by Mr Scruff’s eclectic 6 hour sets, General Patten decided the best thing to do was NOT to take a genre based approach and take the audience on a journey through sound always pleasing a crowd and with his mixture of old and new but always fresh original sounds and never fails to get feet moving on the dance floor. Expect Funk, Soul, Rare Groove, 80s Disco, Hip-hop, reggae, Afro beat, Latin, Breakbeat & 60’s Psychedelic.
