Music on West Lawn from DJ Wendy May’s Locomotion and Bobby Fuego’s Fat Fingers of Funk.
Screening of The Love Bug (1968) on sea-facing wall.
Ends approx. 10.30pm
Born from a mutual love of Jazz, Latin, Funk and good times, Bobby Fuego’s Fat Fingers of Funk brings together the Hastings talents of Rob Leake on Saxes, bassist Roger Carey, drummer Richmond Stockwell, guitarist Danny Jefferies and Jo Brooks on keys and vocals.
Dynamic, eclectic, effulgent and playful, the Fat Fingers of Funk mix it all up into one funky gumbo and serve it up hot for your listening pleasure!
Back in the late 80’s, Wendy May ran a clubnight at Kentish Town’s Town & Country Club on Friday nights called Wendy May’s Locomotion which regularly pulled in 2000 clubbers and is featured in Nick Hornby’s book 31 Songs.
Frequented by the likes of Madness, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, it became home from home for Camden boys The Pogues. Norman Cooke aka Fatboy Slim did one of his first ever DJ sets warming up for Wendy when he was the bass player with The Housemartins, and Phill Jupitus first took to the decks at her club!
In ‘87 she co-presented the last series of The Tube for Channel 4 with Jools Holland & Paula Yates whilst also being the only female DJ & “youth presenter” on London’s Capital Radio, giving live sessions to up & coming bands.
DJing for the past 30 years, including Glastonbury, Miner’s Strike benefit gigs, tours with various bands and top comedians, she is still happiest dancing behind the decks spinning her favourite records from her collection!
