Soul Dates

Craig's live funk night rolls into 2015.

23 January, 2015

For quite some time now, Craig Charles has been a man on a mission. And that mission? To bring an irresistible blend of top-class funk and soul music to as many dancing party animals as possible. It's a quest that shows no signs of slowing down, either; and beyond his weekly commitment to throwing out tunes on BBC Radio 6Music (with the occasional fill-in on Radio 2 to boot), he's got an extensive slate of live dates lined up in the first quarter of 2015 for anyone who feels the need to get out there and, in the words of Kryten, "strut their funky stuff".

Soul Dates

This very weekend brings a rare London date on Friday night (23rd January) at the Jazz Café in Camden, before trips over the coming weeks and months to Birmingham, Cardiff, Leicester, Reading, Clitheroe and Woking. That's an addition to a regular engagement at the Band on the Wall in Manchester on the last Saturday of every month. Here's a full list of all the available dates at the time of writing:

Friday 23rd January London, The Jazz Café
Saturday 24th January Birmingham, Hare & Hounds
Saturday 31st January Manchester, Band On The Wall
Friday 13th February Cardiff, The Globe
Saturday 28th February Manchester, Band On The Wall
Friday 6th March Leicester, Streetlife
Friday 20th March Reading, Sub89 & The Bowery District
Friday 27th March Clitheroe, The Grand
Saturday 28th March Manchester, Band On The Wall
Saturday 18th April Woking, Bisley Pavilion Hotel
Saturday 25th April Manchester, Band On The Wall

You can buy tickets from the various individual venues, and find links and an updated listing over at Ents24. The shows frequently involve live band performances before Craig takes over for a lengthy DJ set. We don't know why, though, but we still haven't been able to get him to play some Rastabilly Skank...
