Funkdub’s 4th Birthday with YES KING! [+]

http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l128/funkdub/yesking.jpg

Fourth birthday celebrations secure special guests for Chester’s premier promoters

Yes King, the acclaimed hip hop, dancehall and ska outfit have been revealed as the special guests to headline at Funkdub’s fourth birthday event at Telford’s Warehouse in Chester on Saturday, 8th November.

Funkdub have been showcasing eclectic DJ nights and some of the UK’s most respected artists throughout the last four years.

The birthday event promises to outshine the legendary Telford’s Warehouse performances from Pama International, Max Sedgely & The Shoots, Little Barrie and Keb Darge.

Yes King is the latest offering from Mark Rae, one half of the celebrated Rae & Christian, architect of the sadly now defunct Grand Central Records, and owner of Manchester’s famous Fat City record shop.

The live show, just returning from tours of the US, Australia and New Zealand, includes UK hip-hop icon Mystro, Yes King co-creator Rhys Adams and an outstanding brass section.

Funkdub founder Sam Hutchinson is thrilled to have secured a band of Yes King’s calibre in Chester: “Running Funkdub over the last four years has been a brilliant journey. Between Funkdub and its various spin-off nights, we’ve had over 65 DJ outings, playing some of the finest and rarest funk, dub, electro, hip-hop, soul and rock & roll in venues such as Alexander’s, City Bar, The Student Unions, The Frog and Nightingale, Off The Wall and of course our spiritual home Telford’s Warehouse.

Sitting in the shadows of bigger cities like Liverpool and Manchester, Chester has always been a difficult city to pull bands to, but bringing the likes of Pama Intl., Little Barrie, Max Sedgley & The Shoots, Keb Darge and Out From Animals to our stage, I have proven it can be done. The icing on the cake is the fabulous Yes King for the fourth birthday… make sure you get down early to avoid disappointment!”

The band will be supported by Funkdub DJs 3DJ and G-Kush’s unparalleled mix of eclectic vinyl before and after the main event.

Funkdub Live Presents Yes King will be on Saturday, 8th November at Telford’s Warehouse.

Free Entry Before 10pm, £4thereafter.
