Brighton Groove Project – The Acid Jazz and Funk Jam Returns!

The music is improvised around a riff or simple chord progression, with the groove as the guide. Occasionally we might slip into tunes like Cantaloupe Island, Maiden Voyage or Chameleon.
Someone calls a key and starts a riff and everyone brings their sound to the mix. It’s a great opportunity to stretch out, work on your improvising or just dance to the funky grooves. Everyone is welcome, percussionists, horn players, vocalists, rappers, didgeridoo and harmonica players too.
As with most jams, amps, keyboards and drums are provided, please treat them with respect. Guitarists, bassists, horn players etc please bring your own instruments. Please arrive in good time so we can get you up to do 1 or 2 numbers.
If you want some clues about the kind of stuff we do, check out bands like The Brand New Heavies, Down to the Bone, Jamiroquai, Incognito, Herbie Hancocks Headhunters and John Scofields Uberjam as well as the demo on the BGP page. http://soundcloud.com/brighton-groove-project/short-demo

Entry is free and there will be an opportunity to donate to the house bands during the night.

Action for Happiness

Free Entry // 6:45pm Doors

Self-described as a “movement for positive social change”, Action for Happiness is a national charity aimed at increasing basic levels of happiness through whatever means they have and is a long-term friend of Latest Music Bar. Here’s what they have to say about their mission….

We’re bringing together people from all walks of life who want to play a part in creating a happier society for everyone. For fifty years we’ve aimed relentlessly at higher incomes. But despite being much wealthier, we’re no happier than we were five decades ago. At the same time we’ve seen an increase in wider social issues, including a worrying rise in anxiety and depression in young people. It’s time for a positive change in what we mean by progress.
