Come and see the Fox & Firkin debut of Afro-rock-funk-psych spectacular Agbeko!!! DJ Special Terry brings his epic vinyl selection along to keep you all moving till 2am. Just £3 after 9!
♬♬ Agbeko ♬♬
Drawing their inspiration and energy from the golden age of 1970s’ Nigerian, Ghanaian and Ethiopian dancefloors, Agbeko command a wealth of powerful sing-along originals and unique arrangements of Afrobeat and ethiojazz rarities. Expect punchy horns, choppy guitars and wailing organs, all underpinned by a powerful groove, infectious enthusiasm and a healthy dose of sub-standard dancing.
Since their formation in 2015, Agbeko have enjoyed enthusiastically received performances at festivals including Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Kendal Calling, Tramlines and at the Manchester Jazz Festival. Airplay on US online radio shows followed, along with plans next summer for their first foray onto mainland Europe. They are currently working towards the release of their first record in early 2017.
