The return of Brit Funk bands Savanna & Atmosfear


The band that I started way back when in the late 70s Savanna with Sammy Jacobs and Jeffrey Durrant will be reforming and have been invited to be on the bill of this years Summer Soulstice 2010 on 19th June.I was at the festival last year with Beggar & Co and we had a great time. The audience are a full on Funk audience who know every tune the Djs Play. After the festival last year it was thought that doing something with more Brit funk bands this year would be a great way of offering an alternative weekend festival to others out there! So we were approached about being apart of this years event! I then spoke with Ray of Atmosfear about the possibility of them reforming and doing a double header with us at the Soulstice. On Sunday the news was finally up on the Soulstice site and various Social media sites,Where there is already a lot of activity happening with a huge amount of interest from people wanting tickets. There will be in both bands some heavyweight musicians and Vocalist and I can't wait for 19th June to come around!I will post all news,views and info on the Savanna band here! www.myspace.com/savanna_uk is the web home of Savanna.The Summer Soulstice raises funds for a Cancer Charity every year and is a really worthwhile cause with many volunteers giving above and beyond the call of duty their time and hard work..So come down to Barnet North London if you like your funk fresh!
