The Workman’s Club proudly welcomes Gregory Spade and The Love Tailors for a very special gig this August in aid of SVP, Gardiner Street Branch.
Often to be found funkin’ up bars and clubs around Dublin City, Spade and the Love Tailors, (Spells Brothers: Magic, Dizzy, Sonny, Hazy) were the Friday night house band in The Sugar Club for over two years.
FUNKTRY first appeared on a rainy night in the summer of 2014, while playing a gig to a very select few in Dublin. A flash of inspiration hit Gregory Spade — FUNKTRY! Turning to Magic Spells he quickly explained what it was; Magic knew where it was coming from and explained it to Dizzy and Dizzy started to play it. Sonny and Hazy jumped on board and, right there and then, FUNKTRY was born.
From Dublin City via the home of the Blues, the Home of Country and the Home of Hip- Hop, Clarksdale, Memphis, The Delta, New York, Gregory Spade and The Love Tailors present FUNKTRY to the people of Dublin for the first time in one very special show.
So come along to The Workman’s Club on Saturday, 15th August and enjoy the sounds and antics of Gregory Spade and The Love Tailors, for the launch of their debut EP ‘FUNKTRY’ and some cracking live music.
