Sail down the Thames to the perfect party soundtrack as Soundcrash takes you on a 4 hour journey aboard London’s largest party boat, the Mississippi style paddle steamer the Dixie Queen! With BBC 6Music’s Craig Charles on captain duties you know this will be a blast.
Poet, actor, television presenter, stand up comedian and BBC radio host Craig Charles has been performing since the age of 12 when he won The Guardian Poetry Award. He began appearing in television programmes after starting his career as an urban performance poet, presenting on children’s television shows such as What’s that Noise. He acquired cult status as Dave Lister on BBC 2′s hugely popular Red Dwarf and has appeared in a myriad of other shows as an actor or presenter, including cult classics Takeshi’s Castle and Robot Wars. He presents the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show for BBC 6Music where he explores the past present and future of the genres. His DJ sets are infectious!
Mr Thing knows a thing or two about what constitutes a good funk record and most certainly knows how to put two records together. His Strange Breaks & Mr Thing compilations on BBE and solo DMC Championship testify to this, and what better way to pay homage to the genre than to play a set consisting entirely of James Brown 45s!
Working professionally in the music industry for the last 12 years. Jon Kennedy has released 4 LPs on some of the UK’s best underground labels: Tru Thoughts Recordings and Manchester based Grand Central Records, to name a few. A man of the world, he tours the globe extensively, reaching places as far as Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow and New York City. Never one to rest on his laurels, his own musical productions has seen him work with the likes of Hennessey, Vans, Billabong and Channel 4. The future plans bring Jon to you on his own record label THE JON KENNEDY FEDERATION, under the umbrella of SONY MUSIC.
