Hook and Sling Festival

AGMP presents

HOOK & SLING

The Finest Funk, Soul & Breaks

2 Days

2 Rooms

25+ Bands & DJs

Named after the Eddie Bo Funk 45, "Hook & Sling" is a new event focusing on the Funk & Soul Scene bringing together Vintage Artists - most of whom are appearing for the first time in Europe - and the Best of Today's Generation.

**WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE** - The Poets of Rhythm are the Godfathers of the Deep Funk Scene. Formed in the early 1990's in Germany, The Poets of Rhythm were their first band to authentically recreate the Funk sound for a modern audience. Their 1993 album "Practice What You Preach" is now, quite rightly, regarded as an all time classic. Their 2001 "Discern/Define" album on Ninja Tune took the funk in a new direction. Compilations from DJ Shadow and Daptone Records in recent years have followed. The Poets of Rhythm are back for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

**EUROPEAN EXCLUSIVE** - The Sugarman 3 were founded by Daptone Records co-owner Neal Sugarman as a Boogaloo/Soul Jazz combo back in the 1990's along with Rudy Albin (Drums) and Adam Scone (Hammond B-3 Organ). The Sugarman 3 have worked with Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Naomi Davis and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie.

**EUROPEAN EXCLUSIVE** - Will Sessions hail from Detroit and are arguably the best funk group in the world today. A slew of killer 45's on the Funk Night record label with Billy Love, Rickey Calloway & Amp Fiddler have sent the funk/breaks world into overdrive with copies of some of these singles already selling for big money in the collectors world. Will Sessions have also collaborated with Mayer Hawthorne, Black Milk, Elzhi, Danny Brown and more.

**WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE** - Emil Carter from Mickey and the Soul Generation is flying in from Texas, USA to perform the music of arguably the definitive Deep Funk group. Emil Carter is the Vocalist/ Saxophonist with Mickey and the Soul Generation who existed between 1969-1977. DJ Shadow released a compilation of their entire catalogue in 2004 including "Iron Leg, " How Good is Good". "Get Down Brother", "Southern Fried Funk" and more. This will be Emil's first ever show in the UK.

**EUROPEAN EXCLUSIVE** - Rickey Calloway is the self-proclaimed "King of Funk" who released his debut single "Tell Me" in 1970. After Kenny Dope re-mixed and re-issued the single in 2004 Rickey has joined forces with The Dap-Kings, Will Sessions and The Soul Surfers to release singles on the Funk Night and Kay Dee labels. This will be Rickey's first ever show in the UK.
