    Bo Nanafana Social Club & Future Radio's Steve Arlene team up to create a fantastic Friday club night at the Talk. Dance floor, mirrored pillars, DJ's and VJ's, plus 2 of the rootsiest, funkiest, soul and blues outfits this side of the pond. The James Hunter Six seem to spend most of their time nowadays sprinting from festival to theatre in the United States & Europe, and their continued hard work has reaped the rewards. Touring as Howlin' Wilf & the Vee-Jays since the mid '80's and building up a reputation across the UK and Europe as a real talent, the name was changed to the James Hunter Six. Releasing a number of records on various labels subsequently and recieving a Grammy nomination for their troubles. 'Baby Hold On' was released on Daptone Records out of Brooklyn, NYC, earlier this year to critical acclaim. James has shared the stage with Etta James, Van Morrison, Taj Mahal, Chris Issac and many musicians flock to see him and to hear his remarkable voice, guitar playing and over the years his increased mastery of writing the song. The band are bona fide kings of the soul groove, so make sure you bring your dancing shoes! We're gonna party Big Joe Louis & His Blues Kings is easily one of the UK's finest blues outfits. They have got the rock! I've seen the band a million times, but they were sensational at this years Red Rooster Festival. Big Joe, born Jamaica, West Indies moved to London in the 70's, has been releasing records since '89 with worldwide success, had a 2 year stint with the Big Town Playboys in the 2000's, but this outfit right now.... well they're OUTASIGHT!! We've got some fabulous soul/blues DJ's in the 2 Kevs.... sounds like the making's of a top evening.
