PETE DE VIT

Friday 6th May

After about 10 years, Pete Moore or “Lejazz” or “Pete De Vit” is still playing records at La Raza. Raised on a diet of Jungle from the age of 13 onto Jazz, Funk, Soul, Dancehall, Techno, House and anything else with an off centre vibe, Pete guarantees you will dance, cry, get angry, stop being angry and start making love whenever you hear him play. That alone has to be worth coming.  

He’ll cover as many styles as possible in one evening, with the dance-floor always the number one priority. Expect something different to the rest of the music in the city.

KONTROVERSI

Friday 13th May

Kontroversi is a Cambridge based electrofunk duo. They are Mr Margaret Scratcher (Mark Sutton) on keyboards, synthesizers and drum machines, and GSD (Leonardo Robarts) on lead vocals, guitar and synths. After knowing each other many years through the music scene, in 2016 they decided to collaborate to produce their own unique sound which they have dubbed ‘#Cadillac Funk’.

Imagine Prince, Parliament, New Order and Jamiroquai taking a road trip across the galaxy in a ’59 Cadillac and you’re halfway there…

Their live show embraces 80’s funk and lies somewhere between a band and a DJ –
Between them, they build a foundation of heavy beats from classic drum machines, chunky analog basslines, and then the combination of Margaret Scratcher’s sweeping keytar solos and analog wizardry, and GSD’s soulful melodies and guitar chops ties the whole package together to define the Kontroversi sound.

SWAGGER

Friday 1st July

Swagger have years of experience and heaps of talent! They have been our house band at La Raza for the past 10 years, and every month always fill the dance floor!

They play the classics with a twist, so expect a mix of 60s groove, 70s funk, 80s cheese and 90s favourites, with plenty of surprises thrown in! They take their music very seriously, but not necessarily themselves…they are five grown men who do not shy away from the kind of tunes that would terrify your average suited-up ensemble!
