A Celebration of Blues Funk’N Soul with AWARE

Nerve Centre, 1st December

The Nerve Centre will play host to some of the best of Derry’s music scene, with a night of Blues Funk’N Soul with a fundraising night for AWARE NI on Saturday 1st December

The evening will celebrate Derry’s unique culture of music, soul and art, kicking off with the Jack McHale Trio, introducing old school rhythm and blues with a slice of soul. Followed by McHales blistering guitar and high energy vocals, supported by classic Hammond organ and danceable beats.

Next up at the Blues Funk’N Soul gig, is the newly formed Funkitects with their debut gig featuring timeless soul and funk classics.

The Funkitects features an amazing line up of Derry’s finest musicians, including Meilana Gillard, John Leighton, Joseph Leighton, Rowan Armstrong and Mark O Doherty.

Finally, enjoy the hedonistic beats of DJ Kwame - the man behind Bounce Culture (Music Education Organisation) which emerged from the Soul, Blues and Funk filled nights in Sandino’s 1999.

The vibes need to be felt to be believed.
