Rounding off the live music announcements for Berries Beans & Beer – Crewe on 26th and 27th April are Encore De Funk. We saw them at the gin festival at the Cholmondley Arms and on stage at the Baltic Market in Liverpool and thought they would be a fantastic finish for the Saturday night of 2019 Berries Beans & Beer weekend.
Encore De Funk are a 7 piece collective from the North West. Brought together by their mutual love for Soul/Funk and Acid Jazz, the group decided to embark on project to create original interpretations of contemporary classics, adding in some untouched masterpieces along the way.
The band are at their best live. A solid rhythm section creates the perfect foundation for the commanding tones of the brass and the intricate Hammond/Rhodes keys. The overall groove is finished off with the smoothest of vocals which perfectly compliment this mix of modern and heritage styles.
Berries Beans & Beer, the drinks festival with a twist is back for it’s third year at the Crewe Heritage Centre on Friday 26th April (5pm – 11pm) and Saturday 27th April (12 – 11pm). A unique mix of craft beers (40), gins (75), rums (20) alongside a locally operated cider bar, coffee bar, wine & cocktail bar, bottle beer bar, street food stalls and live music. An unmissable weekend!
Tickets are £5 per day with a £3 deposit for a glass. Payment at the bars is taken in tokens or by card, skip any queues and buy your tickets and tokens in advance at http://www.michelleshipman.nutickets.com from Friday 1st February.
