Horace Panter (The Specials) has announced a very special club night ‘Soul Grooves’ at the legendary 100 Club, London, on 5th December 2018.
Horace Panter, a.k.a. Sir Horace Gentleman, needs no introduction as founder member and bassist of The Specials. Their influence on British music has been immense, and their blend of ska and rocksteady, with punk’s energy and attitude, is the soundtrack of a generation.
Soul Grooves will allow us to see and hear Horace in a different light, playing tunes by the likes of The Meters, George Benson and Booker T., alongside a band of highly talented jazz and soul musicians including Nikolaj Torp Larsen on Hammond organ, Kenrick Rowe on drums, Jim Hunt on Tenor & Baritone sax and Dave Keech on trombone.
Eddie Piller (MD of Acid Jazz Records, Soul DJ, Host of The Modcast, Broadcaster & Writer) will be DJ’ing on the night.
This event is a fundraiser for Tonic Music for Mental Health, a non-profit organisation that supports people recovering from mental health difficulties by providing free music and art groups, and funding artists to produce their own music. Our patrons are Terry Hall (The Specials) and Kevin Cummins (Photographer).
