Info provided by the Event Organiser
Hidden away in the North East of England, DJ Chris Tarn and double bass player Phil Smith discovered they shared a fondness for sampling long forgotten or never discovered dusty vinyl and decided to hook up and bounce around a few ideas. These ideas took a life of their own as they started to work with live musicians and the sound of the band took on more of a live feel. The songs were passed around friends and ended up getting radio plays on Craig Charles’ Funk and Soul Show (BBC 6 Music) and Pete Isaac's Jelly Jazz Show and were played extensively on local radio stations up in the North East.
