FUNKDUB, TELFORD’S WAREHOUSE,
DIPLOMATS OF SOUND & CHAI WALLAHS PRESENT…
THE FUNKDUB 7TH BIRTHDAY with…
YES SIR BOSS (LIVE) + MORE LIKE TREES (LIVE)
Chester’s premier live music promoters, Funkdub has assembled TWO critically acclaimed young bands, Yes Sir Boss and More Like Trees to celebrate its landmark SEVENTH birthday party at Telford’s Warehouse on Saturday, 26th November.
Bristol-based headliners, Yes Sir Boss, have recently been signed to Joss Stone’s new label, and will release their debut album, Desperation State in early 2012.
Their truly original reggae sound is created from a multitude of worldly musical and cultural influences. A heavy blend of horn led hooks, offbeat rhythms and epic riffs provide the perfect backing for the seductively expressive and husky vocals of front man Matt Sellors.
Yes Sir Boss have completed a summer of touring, appearing at Glastonbury, Bestival, and Green Man with the legendary Chai Wallahs crew. With a live radio session recorded at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios set already under their belt, get down to see Yes Sir Boss before they hit the mainstream.
Joining them for the anniversary event will be More Like Trees, the ridiculously talented band formed from the ashes of Chester favourites Fran & Josh.
Headed up by Josh Whitehouse, the band makes sounds, beats and rhythms that simply shouldn’t be possible with just a guitar, double bass and percussion. Their truly unique sound comprises drum and bass, flamenco, hip-hop and gypsy flavours.
In recent years, the Funkdub brand has brought Chester some of its most memorable music events ever. Barnstorming appearances from The Dub Pistols, Gentleman’ Dub Club, Greg Wilson, Pama International, Max Sedgely & The Shoots, Yes King, Little Barrie and Keb Darge have become legend, and this seventh birthday celebration promises to eclipse even them.
Both acts will be supported by resident Funkdub DJs, 3DJ and G-Kush, smashing up the decks with their captivating vinyl mastery.
Funkdub Live Presents Yes Sir Boss and More Like Trees will be on Saturday, 26th November at Telford’s Warehouse. Tickets are priced at just £4 on the door / FREE before 9pm.
