GALWAY’S PREMIER soul, funk, r’n’b, and ska night SHUFFLE! in the Róisín Dubh, will play host of one of the great Northern Soul DJs when Keb Darge hits the decks.
The legendary Darge, who hails from the Scottish Highlands, will DJ on Friday May 15 from 11pm. His sets, while they stil include soul and funk, take a broad range of music these days, so expect to hear garage, surf, and rockabilly as well.
In an interview with the Galway Advertiser a few years ago, Darge explained his thinking behinfd the eclectic nature of his DJ sets: “When I started DJing in London in 1979 nobody was into Northern soul,” he said. “Folk today are more open to retro sounds, rather than just what's released today. It's like fashion. Once the magazines told you what to wear, now it really doesn't matter. Music is going the same way. You choose what you want and you listen to who you like.”
Admission is free.
