Next Sunday 8th November my friend Tubes and I will be heading over to Tokyo in Newcastle for weekend wind down and to spin some deep disco, 80's boogie some soul classics for RockSteady & Friends.
This night hosted by Tommy "Rocksteady" Boyes and DJ Woff has seen them welcome a lot of Newcastle's best record changing talent and has had quite an impressive line up of guests in the past months...
Taking place on the upstairs terrace, ROCKSTEADY has provided the perfect soulful soundtrack for ending the weekend in style...
So this particular weekend I'll be heading over to play some beats while Tommy gets himself away to Southport. Check below for Facebook group and November line up.
SUNDAY 1ST NOVEMBER
Tommy Rocksteady vs. Dj Woff
Rocksteady’s original resident DJs take full control of the music for a one off tune off! to see in November before Tommy does off to Southport expect the finest selection of soul disco and boogie to wind down the weekend.
Adrian & Tubes (Touch Soul)
With his DJ cohort Gary, Adrian runs the awesome ‘Touch Soul’ blog alongside some of the best independent parties in Sunderland. Prepare for some of the best in boogie, nu-disco, chuggers and edits alongside some rare and forgotten disco classics.
Scotty Sea (Live PA) plus very special guest Mathers We at Rocksteady HQ are delighted we have eventually convinced Scott to come down to Tokyo for a one off live performance up on the Tokyo terrace. With one of the best voices we heard in a long time Scott is going to wind down the weekend in style with Mathers on the guitar.
Paul T (Bread and Circus)
You can normally find ‘T-frog’ rocking a wife beater vest and chugging out at the awesome Bread and circus nights or hosting the back room of shindig. The most Balearic man in his native Tynemouth is ready to bust out some incense and some heavy slices of 80’s groove, disco and boogie.
Dob plus special guest Beppy Marriot (Live PA)
Dob is bringing something different to the terrace, true 60’s soul and funk. Playing straight off a massive collection of original 7” vinyl we can’t wait to hear some more rare and forgotten classics from a true lover of soul. Alongside Dob is Beppy, playing her own brand of Acoustic soul, all original material live on the terrace. 8 ‘til midnight every Sunday at Tokyo Westgate road, Search ‘rocksteady and friends’ on facebook for more details.
