IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB takes you to Nigeria in 1986, where a small town Afrobeat band have just been told they need to play American top 40 hits to keep their nightclub gig. They donít own any of the records, but theyíre going to give it a try.
Mashing up the music you remember (and some thatís best forgotten) with the Nigerian funk style of Fela Kuti, the 11 piece band will surprise and delight. But mostly, get you shaking it.
With a massive horn-section and tight grooving rhythms, Ijebu Pleasure Club will show you that all pop music comes from mother-Africa.
DJ Tido will be spinning funk and soul in support.
