More info to come soon, but chuck it in your diary. You won’t want to miss as last years gig was killer. It will be exactly the same band as last time, only we will be featuring new material as well as stuff from our first 3 albums, all over two action packed sets.

 

Here’s a video from last year!

20th Century Dog + Mister Ott

  

Friday 25 july: Two killer Afro-Funk Jazz bands with a who’s who of local talent

After a sell out show earlier this year ‘The Dog’ are back with there Jazzified Afro and Broke Beat Funk. There studio album ‘Mad Stream’ was described as “Something approaching improvised perfection.” (SMH) Live there is something even more expansive and energetic about this band. This rare blend of odd time danceable grooves and singable melodies is infectious.

Free your mind to the melody and rhythm of Ethiopia in the opening set as Mr Ott’s Eastern mellismatic scales and hypnotic trancelike rhythms go head to head with seriously solid funk grooves.

505 with dancers lo res

We have a massive night planned. Mister Ott will be in extended 8 piece mode with Peter Farrar on sax and Steve Marin on percussion and I’m proud to announce that there will also be four incredible dancers assembled by Fenix Icatu, specialists in dancehall, house, popping etc. We saw Fenix and Miguel last year at 505 and I am very excited to say that Fenix will be back again this time with 3 new dancers in tow.

To kick off the night we have Slowpoke Rodriguez, a band made up of members of the Strides, Watussi and Deep Sea Arcade and featuring  trumpeter Ken Allars. If you want to hear what they sound like check their band camp page here
