Another Sunday Afternoon At Dingwalls - 30/11/14 with DJ's Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge & Kev Beadle



Really looking forward to playing at 'Another Sunday Afternoon At Dingwalls' jazz session again after all these years with my mates Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge,
Advance tickets are £19 and available at www.dingwalls.com/listings/
BE QUICK AS THEY ARE FLYING OUT ALREADY !!


A Celebration of the Legendary Talkin' Loud and Saying Something Sessions....

“Talkin Loud and Saying Something” or just “Dingwalls” as it was more commonly known was the session that shaped a generation, in sound, style and attitude it’s influence spread far and wide. It was the counterpoint to the rave generation’s acid revolution, taking that same spirit and optimism and applying it to a very different music. It built on the legacy of the Electric Ballroom and the jazz-dance scene that had been bubbling away since the early eighties but took things to a new level. It became the touchstone for everything that followed in it’s wake, acquiring legendary status, tempting folk to later claim that “I was there” whether they were or not. It was inspirational, revolutionary, celebratory, radical. It was a family, it was a congregation. It was our Paradise Garage. This event has once again reached out and tapped into all that was special and every year it becomes more and more legendary.
