    We're going to launch a Funkademia Festival - Funkademia De la Sol.

    A long weekender of soul-funk in the sunshine in summer 2017. We've been working on this for a while to get it just right and we're just nailing on the details now so we'll be releasing full info and tickets very soon. It's going to be a bit of a select, boutique kinda affair so tickets will be strictly limited and we expect it to sell out sharpish.

  • Funkademia - 20 Years Under A Groove

    From the scribe of Funkademia...

    In November 1995 promoter Dave Payne launched a fledging clubnight on a cold & blustery Sunday night in the Boardwalk nightclub, Manchester. In an era where Madchester was at its peak and house music dominating the City’s club scene a night based round soul-funk-disco-hip hop music went against the flow and was something of a gamble. The opening night proved a remarkable success and a new club night was formed. Word got round and by the time the next Funkademia event took place on Boxing night 1995 queues were tailing round the block of the Boardwalk before the doors were opened.

    Remarkably 20 years later the night is now Manchester’s longest running club night after having equally successful spells at the Attic, Subspace, Zumeba and One Central Street nightclubs. Over half a million clubbers have got down on the funkademia dancefloor and the night is still going strong having just enjoyed its busiest ever year at Mint Lounge.

    To celebrate this remarkable achievement on 28th November 2015 we’re having a bit of a do.

    When we first started back in 1995 David Dunne was the main man at Manchester’s legendary Kiss 102 radio station & he was kind enough to give us loads of support over the airwaves which helped our fledging night take off. So for our 20th birthday do we’ve got David on the decks in the main room to take us back to our roots. Supporting David is the man who dj’ed the very first Funkademia, Payney and the Good for the Soul boys will be lending a hand to.

    We have also uncovered an old dusty video from the very first Boardwalk night which we’ll be airing at the Mint Lounge on the night so those original groovers from 20 years ago can come along & see how well their moves and hair lines have progressed over the last 18 years.

    We’ve come a long way from our very first night back in the 1995 at the Boardwalk and with the continued support of our members we intend to keep on keeping on for a while longer yet. Any profile you can afford to our birthday night would be much appreciated.

    On a one-man mission to introduce Hip-Hop to the Queen's English, Mr. B is delighted to present Chap-Hop.

    Having spent the best part of a decade bringing some manners back to popular culture, this dopest of fellows will entertain and amuse you with his ingenious stylings.

    Aiming to dazzle with dignity, Mr. B takes to the stage with his Banjolele and stiff upper lip to perform ditties of pipe-smoking, high society, Cricket and sexual misadventure, as well as some more well-known pieces from the world of Hip-Hop, re-worked in true Chap-Hop fashion.

    Mr.B has fast gained a reputation as an eloquent and entertaining live performer, playing recitals across the UK and into Johnny Continent for the past two years from the Glastonbury Festival to club NME in Paris, from the club in Surrey to the Edinburgh fringe.

    His recent video 'Chap-Hop history' received over 100,000 hits in its first week on youtube. He has just guested on banjolele and vocals on US nerdcore rapper MC Frontalot's album 'Zero Day'.

    His debut long player 'Flattery Not Included' is available via www.gentlemanrhymer.com now and his second, 'I Say!' will be available in December, once launched at the Chap magazine's second Grand Anarcho Dandyist Ball.
