ELECTRIC EMPIRE BACK

 

An exciting new funkin’ swingin’ fusion night kicks off in Feb which promises to add some sparkle to the Eastside…

 

Not far from my own heart it’ll be a mishmash of live bands, DJs and spankin’ visuals with an open music policy of goodtime toons, from ghettofunk to breaks to swing and hip-hop…. and probably one reason promoter Ed Higgins approached me to do the promotional artwork. That’s my kinda tipple!

 

On the site of the legendary Electric Empire cinema, a glorious symbol of the art deco silver screen dream, the night intends to recapture some of that jitterbuggin’ sparkle and glamour. “Take the 1920's style of a right old knees up and shove it into a 21st century banging house party. Mix and match styles; think dapper hood rat or a flapper skater girl” says the blurb…

 

The first Electric Empire is on Saturday 25th February with guests JFB, Chris Tofu and Future Swing Stories – click here for more details
