Goodbye Deep Funk... Hello The Good Foot

After 15 years, Keb Darge's legendary Deep Funk club comes to an end this month. The last ever night of this groundbreaking session takes place on Friday 28th May.

Starting in June, the night will be replaced by a new weekly session called The Good Foot featuring DJs Snowboy and Healer Selecta.

Not one to mince words, here's the lowdown from the great Keb Darge himself:

"That Keb Darge has gone all fifties, and rockabilly. So we thought it best to get two of the best sixties and seventies men on the planet to replace the senile old twat... Looks like it will be a great night."

This new night promises a music policy of "original and authentic Sixties and Seventies Deep Funk, Soul, Rare Groove, Boogaloo, Mambo and R&B"

You can be sure that the final Deep Funk will be a roadblock session, so I can only advise arriving before the doors open and joining the queue! Alternatively, you may want to get down there this Friday for the penultimate session.
