Soul Provision, York
Soul Provision @ The Golden Ball, York
Saturday 22 February, 6pm-1130pm, Free.
Soul Provision is a brand new night of Soul, Funk, R&B, Jazz & Rocksteady Reggae hosted by Jonny Crawshaw (Give It Some! / Sunday Soul Shakedown) and featuring a rotating selection of guest DJs every month.
Soul Provision is a social session - toe-tapping rather than hip-shaking — and is conceived as a coming together of like-minds in this intimate gem of a pub; The Golden Ball is famed for it's historic interior and excellent selection of Ales (it is also York’s only cooperatively owned and run pub as well as being the first pub in York to pay the living wage to all staff). If you love great music, great ale and great surroundings, this is the place for you!
This month’s guest, GUMBO, hails from the North East though is now based in Manchester. Gumbo runs "The Inner Circle Soul Club" which has gained worldwide notoriety with it's approach & dedication to Soul & Funk music having, as it does, one of the strongest teams of DJs you’re likely to find; Gumbo, Dave Ripolles, Soul Sam, George Mahood, Phil Wainwright, Adam Leaver... (It really is worth making a trip to the club - you will not be disappointed!). For those of us on the right(ahem!) side of the Pennines to save you the bother and allow you an insight into what all the fuss is about, Gumbo is coming East this month for your listening pleasure! He works extremely hard to keep his box sounding fresh and always comes with the killers and no fillers! Expect heavy beat ballads, sublime mid-tempo crossover & modern soul.
Check his mix for "The Inner Circle Soul Club":
He will more than likely also have a small sales box with him, so be prepared to be very tempted...!
Second guest DJ TBC
Soul Provision is held the last Saturday of every month starting February 22. It is Free Entry and starts from 6pm at The Golden Ball, 2 Cromwell Rd, Bishophill, York.
