Craig Charles/Smoove & Turrell
Craig Charles is a great friend and supporter of Smoove and Turrell, he formed a Fantasy Funk Band on his BBC Radio 6 Music show and featured John Terrell on lead vocals. He has also introduced the band at festivals, including Glastonbury and the BBC's Proms in the Park. Craig had a great time playing North Sea Sounds last year, as he puts it himself, “I can’t wait to bring my trunk of funk back on the ferry again! No sleep ‘till Amsterdam.”
With the release of their fourth album Crown Posada this Autumn Geordie funksters Smoove & Turrell are aiming to cement their position as one of the UK’s best funk and soul acts with their innate ability to deliver gritty northern social commentary in a dancefloor friendly medium.
The band and the name came about by DJ/ Producer Smoove and singer John Turrell joining forces after a chance introduction and a plan to do a record together.
That quickly grew into a band that has played the biggest festival stages worldwide and become a familiar UK soul acts.
This weekend is a must for all fans of funk and soul. We will be taking over 2 rooms with DJs playing across both nights until the early morning.
