Local favourites Andy and Danny bring a new show jammed with danceable boogies, get-down funk and smooth soul cuts.

Andy James has been a regular on the local crate diggers circuit in recent times, playing choice cuts from his collection of soul, funk, latin, jazz and hip hop records at venues such as Kazimier Garden and Café Tabac, where he held a celebrated weekend residency for some years. Danny Fitzgerald has recently produced Calypso and Highlife compilations for renowned London label Soul Jazz Records. His selections of Jazz-based music from the Caribbean, Latin America, West Africa and beyond have warmed stages for the likes of Quantic, Norman Jay, and Gilles Peterson.

Danny Fitz covers it on a solo tip this time around, giving us a selection from the jazz spectrum, from bebop to afro-cuban, vocal cuts to samba fusion.
