CRAIG CHARLES “The best funk and soul band this side of the Atlantic”
FRED WESLEY “His favourite funk band”
PUSH are the original 70’s rare groove merchants from back in the day.
Before Jamiroquai and the Brand New Heavies take centre stage, Push were the authentic article, ‘keepin’ it real’ since day 1.
Band members have between them worked with a long list of illustrious soul, jazz and funk acts from both sides of the Atlantic, They were the groove behind artists like Galliano, Carleen Anderson, James Taylor Quartet, Candi Stanton, Lalomie Washburn and Marlena Shaw. Plus Gilles Peterson’s legendary Talking Loud & Saying Something ‘session band’.
They’ve also worked with some of biggest names in the music industry including Soul II Soul, Paul Weller and Steve Winwood.
Tonight is also rather special as the bands keyboard maestro is none other than Michael McEvoy, now a living breathing Thanetian since 2015, living in our fair town of Ramsgate.
A night out with PUSH is a night of getting down for the funk of it!
As we said, Craig Charles is a huge fan and they play his show…
