DATE: 16th October VENUE: The Courtyard Theatre, London N1
Acid Jazz Records will celebrate their 21st anniversary in some style at a venue just a hundred yards from the east London label’s legendary and late lamented Blue Note club in Hoxton Square.
The label, founded by Eddie Piller and Gilles Peterson back in 1988, became a buzz word in itself and provided a welcome antidote to the bleeps of acid house that swept all asunder in late ’80s clubland. Artists like Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Galliano, Terry Callier, Paul Weller, JTQ, Corduroy, A Man Called Adam and a whole host of others found a natural home at the indie label that pushed back the musical boundaries
The birthday party, hosted by Eddie Piller features dj sets from some of the best dj’s associated with the label’s long and varied history, including Chris Bangs, Ali B, Snowboy, Dean Rudland and Andy Lewis playing a mix of Jazz, Soul, Beats, Funk and Northern + a hip shaking live set of soul, jazz and funk from The Filthy Six.
Date: Friday October 16th
