Music Artists

All hail the original ‘Funki Dred’, Jazzie B! One of many musical highlights at Funk The Family Festival will be a special two-hour DJ set from Soul II Soul’s head honcho. A prolific producer and songwriter (for James Brown, Teena Marie, The Jones Girls and many more), a top-notch radio host (from the original pirate days of Kiss FM to his current shows on Solar and Mi-Soul), award-winning artist Jazzie B also became the first UK “sound man” to be presented an OBE for services to music.
