The Allergies is the throwback funk and boom bap production/DJ outfit from heavyweight disc jocks Rackabeat (Chai Wallahs) and DJ Moneyshot (Solid Steel) and they’ll bring their inimitable party-rocking vibe live on two turntables to The Grafton Saturday 22nd March
Drawing on the sound of vintage samples, hip-hop and classic breaks, the pair have been getting heavy props since their debut Heartbreaker EP topped download charts at the start of 2013. BBC radio legends like Rob Da Bank and Craig Charles are fans, and DJs like Yoda, Kenny Dope and Format joined the ranks of the great and good who’ve already caught the bug for The Allergies infectious beats.
Check it out- we have ourselves a HUGE St Patricks Day Weekend of festivities!
With a 2am extended license on both Friday and Saturday night, 14th & 15th March, we’re planning to party hard in honour of Paddy’s Day this year. No celebration of all things Irish would be complete without a bit o’ fiddle-dee-dee, so get yourselves down on Sunday afternoon, 16th March, to tap your feet and maybe even have a twirl to a traditional folk session with legendary fiddle player Sean Casey. Expect some classic Irish tunes to sing along to in the evening at our special Sing Along Sunday. We’re open late Sunday too so you can fill yer boots til midnight.
Bob Marley’s One Love, Millie Small’s My Boy Lollipop, UB40′s Red Red Wine, and The Specials’ Too Much Too Young are just a few of the iconic songs from the style of music loved across all ages and cultures – Reggae Music. Reggae Choir is an exciting new amateur contemporary choir open to everyone. There is no audition and no experience necessary.
Singing is a joyful activity enjoyed by most (whether we admit to it in public or not). It’s the reason we sing in the shower, around the house, karaoke nights, chanting in the football stands. It makes us feel good and anyone can do it!
So why not join OurCamden Upstairs at The Grafton to experience the Reggae Choir in full swing and also learn how to sing a reggae classic with others. While you are here you can maybe treat yourself to a delicious Sunday roast and a well deserved pint. An event NOT to be missed!
Date: February 16, 2014
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
