Social meet-up followed by Jerry Dammers Birthday Bash
Time & Location
About the Event
Prime social meetup at The Hope followed by (optional/paid) entrance to Jerry Dammers (The Specials and 2Tone) Birthday DJ set at Portico Gallery.
We will meet in the friendly West Norwood local pub for a chat and a drink with an update on Prime activities. A chance to catch up with mates and for new members to meet others. Prime is a group aimed at blokes in their forties and fifties but others are very welcome.
At around 8:30pm-9pm we will make our way over the road to Portico Gallery for the main event:
Jerry Dammers Birthday (Dine and) Dance (and the 40th anniversary of 2 Tone and The Specials).
The founder of The Specials and 2Tone goes back to his roots with his own Salvage Sound System.
He’ll be playing his favourite Ska, Doo Wop, Rhythm & Blues, Rocksteady, Reggae, New Orleans, Funk and Roots.
£10 on the door or £8 in advance (only 100 tickets available)
For an extra £10 there is either a Jamaican or New Orleans meal by the award winning chef Andrew McIntosh
PLUS! Special Guest DJ sets from The Pepperpot DJ The Big Fella (Matt) and Lascelles (Wag Club)
