DAS CONTRAS + Super Six Funk Machine ... TUNNEL 1 ... Saturday 12th September

Following up on the exciting out of town acts we've had the last two events (Bellercuche and Nick Pride and the Pimptones), Funk Machine proudly presents to you Das Contras. We discovered Das Contras through some contacts down in Edinburgh and as soon as the music came on we knew they were perfect for a Funk Machine party.

Check out their latin stylings:

Das Contras: a six-headed musical monster with a Latin temperament, an axe to grind, two devilish horns & a rock n roll heart.

Born in Fife, nurtured in Stockholm and corrupted in Glasgow, Das Contras have been performing their unique funk/folk/jazz/rock since 2005.

Since winning the PRS New Music Award in 2006 the band have played hundreds of concerts from Auld Reekie to New York.

Live highlights include tour shows with Ozomatli, Acoustic Ladyland, Terry Callier, Marlena Shaw & Candi Staton and festivals in the US & Europe.

As ever, your host Super Six Funk Machine will get the mood set with some top quality party funking. More new tracks for all you regulars to look out for too, so come along and get yourselves all funked up.

It was a night of awesome music. Thanks for all that came along, good to see some new faces.

Next Funk Machine night is Freshers Funktacular with Klunk and Az-I Cool on 24th September.

24th October Funk Machine Presents Brascoe. These guys are travelling up from London to come a play with us. I'll make a new event shortly but here is a preview if you care to take a listen... they've got an electro soulful/hiphop kind of vibe going on Brascoe (New Tracks Up) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
