Based on the late 60's Queens, New York club of the same name and a hot location for the seething cauldron of latino urban funk commonly known as Boogaloo, this club celebrates organ driven 60's and 70's soul groove, acid jazz, proto-funk and Boogaloo, with vinyl breaks during live funk jam sessions featuring musicians from the Convulsions, Half a Day and Boo Boo Kiddy Fonc.
Our debut weekly session is the Funky Sunday Afternoon Jam at Crows in Lancaster (10 King Street, Lancaster, LA1 1JN, Tel: 01524 382 888).
The decks start spinning 2pm the first jam starts 2.30pm and the whole lot is meant to wrap up by 5pm (but doesn't have to)
