Hip-hop-ska collective at Narberth festival
10:02am Saturday 14th September 2013 in What's on
SPAN Arts presents a funked up gig to launch Narberth Food Festival 2013, at the Queens Hall, on September 27, 8pm.
The event features the rude talent of King Porter Stomp, with some of Pembrokeshire’s best party DJs playing everything from dub and reggae to bassy beats and electro swing.
King Porter Stomp bring together their own unique union of ska, funk and dub, and top it all off with cleverly crafted conscious rhymes.
Renowned for their eclectic and energetic live shows, with massive horn lines, heavy bass and intricate guitar work, and an “enjoyably raucous” style, according to the Evening Standard, the band have pulled on heart strings and won over the dancing feet of crowds across the UK and into Europe.
2011 saw King Porter Stomp’s public profile raised significantly with a commission from Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London to co-write and perform the music for a brand new contemporary production which ran throughout August and September. With superb major press reviews, King Porter Stomp made their music accessible to brand new audiences.
With a new album, Shuffle, getting described as a madly original, unprecedented blend of styles, and live shows bringing unsafe levels of energy, get ready for a summer smash at the Queens Hall.
Tickets are £9 (£7 concessions), available in advance from Span Arts box office 01834 869 323 or www.span-arts.org.uk.
