Craig Charles, the UK’s most prominent champion of Funk and Soul music, before finding fame through music, was well-known for his acting roles on Red Dwarf, where he has played the character Dave Lister for more than half of his life, and Coronation Street.
He also presented popular shows like Robot Wars and toured the country as a comedian, with the Time Out praising his shows for their “ruthless social observations, emotive poetry, and the best one-liners in the business. Alongside all his other work, Craig Charles still finds time to regularly take his trunk of funk records on the road, around the UK to the delight of thousands.
But it’s not just Craig’s gig! We’ve two fantastic supports to raise the roof before he hits the decks.
First up is Jeramiah Ferrari, a 4 piece Reggae band based just down the road in Leigh (near Manchester). Their music is Roots Reggae with influence Rock, Punk, Ska and Calypso. They have been gigging heavily across the Uk to promote the release of their new CD "The Dubby Rock EP" (which went to number 4 in the ITUNES Reggae chart) and recently won The 2012 Key 103 City Soundwave competition appearing at The Manchester Evening News Arena with Will Young, Labrinth, Tulisa, Taio Cruz, Professor Green, Rizzle Kicks & One Direction.
And next up is Manchester based China White. ‘China White have established themselves as firmly popular and solidly Northern. A talent that sees the venues they play packed to the rafters. Their little black book is one that the industry must envy fiercely. What with collaborations with Keith Allen, Alabama 3 and Rowetta under their belt. Not to mention infrequent comparisons to The Happy Mondays. China White have a massively original sound that still manages to employ catchy hooks. They are set to become Manchester's biggest band this year!!!’ — VIVA MAGAZINE
