Fudge & The Frequency Bring Funk Back to Soho with their Debut Monthly Residency Night at The Drury Club, Featuring VERY Special Guests...
They brought us Futuristic Funk with their debut EP in 2013. They told the world to Wake The Funk Up with their latest EP, and promise us we are, Never Too Old To Dance.
Lead vocalist Fudge Jarcheh and his music collective, The Frequency, are bringing their own unique original blend, with a digital creative flair, to the music landscape. Since launching their debut single, Planet Radio, to a sell-out crowd at the Kensington Roof Gardens last November, they have been taking the London and Paris scenes by storm, selling out every venue along the way, including the Jazz Cafe, Clapham Grand, the Borderline, CARGO, Notting Hill Arts Club and the O2 Academy. Collecting a fiercely loyal band of followers everywhere they perform, calling themselves “Freqs”, they even count Stevie Wonder amongst their fans!
Musically, Fudge and The Frequency create a unique fusion, drawing on influences of funk, soul, dubstep, hip-hop, rock and reggae, blended with some innovative, leading edge technology to augment and stretch their sound to the future, hence coining their style Futuristic Funk. With the voice of Fudge sitting perfectly in the middle of this soundscape, the listener is drawn into The Frequency by the clever lyrics and genuinely fresh tone. The musical styling has been likened to a mixture of Jamiroquai and Prince with a peppering of Daft Punk and a futuristic punch in the face.
Fudge & The Frequency are delighted to be beginning a monthly residency at one of London's most stunning venues, Soho's Drury Club, located on the landmark Drury Lane, just minutes from Covent Garden.
Guest artists on the night will cause just as much of a stir as the headliners. The venue will be divided into two distinct platforms – the acoustic VIP area and the main stage, both of which will host some of the cream of live talent, never before seen on the same bill...
On the acoustic stage, London-based Italian singer-songwriter Mario Nardi, will be performing his own unique blend of Blues and Folk - a sometimes ethereal, sometimes explosive mix of songs that will quickly become the soundtrack to your day.
Making a rare solo appearance will be Ryan O’Donnell, actor and singer for Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. Coming from a rich performance background, Ryan will bring his original material, delivered with his abundant joie de vivre, to the VIP stage.
Also making their debut at the Drury Club on the main stage, will be London Indie Dance Act The Electric Riot, freshly returned from their “Italo Disco Tour”, delivering their irresistible symphonic tribal disco to a backdrop of wall to wall soul and energy.
Get ready to get well and truly FUNKED.
