Our next session at the Jazz Café will be on Friday 17th July with a b boy showcase and live funk/soul/psych from The Killer Meters!
The music policy is an open minded exploration into funk and hip hop taking in soul, latin, beats, cut and paste new and old school, in fact anything that makes you strut your funky stuff. All elements are represented with DJ's, Live Bands, Breakdancers (B-boys), MC's and Dope visuals.
Live music this month is provided by Breakin Bread's house band The Killer Meters. The Killer Meters first emerged in 2005 with a stunning album of Meters covers and since then they've taken on the fantabulous Karime Kendra as a full time vocalist.
This lady is a true phenomenon. Her amazing voice and electric stage presence is a family tradition. Her mother is the Northern Soul legend, Ty Karim, but Miss Kendra has more than earned her own formidable reputation. She's now rightfully regarded as one of the UK's best yet still relatively unknown soul mistresses. They'll be playing breaks for the b-boys as well as their own set.
Breakin Bread has always been an important part of the UK breakdancing scene. It's the only club that has a host of b-boys coming down every month. Other nights do it but these are events for b-boys rather than a general music club. Breakin Bread support the scene by hosting battles and showcases on alternative months and this month its' a showcase from the Junior Sinstars. The Sinstars are one of the UK's longest standing crews.
DJ Skeg is Breakin Breads founder and resident DJ. He'll be spinning, cutting and blending tunes and atmosphere to hype the crowd and get you on the floor.
Your host this month is MC Dylan Sage So if you're looking for a good time and you fancy hitting the dancefloor Breakin Bread is the one! Funky Good Times!!
