Ian ‘Herbie’ Greensmith has been playing records since he was nine year old, spending countless hours with his parents’ stash of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Beatles and Stones singles.
Also a drummer and a writer, he has been DJ-ing more than ever since moving to St Leonards six years ago. He regularly plays in Hastings Old Town at the Dragon Bar and the Fratcave at the Royal Standard and also co-hosts a monthly Jazz night at Hastings’ White Rock Hotel; Berth of the Cool. He has also DJ’d in Spain and in London at the 100 Club and Dirty Water Club.
His tastes are wide and include jazz, pop, lounge, soundtracks, garage, psychedelia, soul, folk, Latin, post-punk, disco and classical, but his favourites in all genres (except classical) tend to fall within the mid-1950s to late-1970s period.
Emmanuel (Mac) is a Samba-Reggae musician and teacher. Having been taught by Brazilian masters and teachers in Salvador (capital of the state of Bahia, in the north east of Brasil where Samba-Reggae comes from) as well as in London, Mac spreads the uplifting and infectious sound of this music by playing in many Samba-Reggae groups, carnivals and processions around the UK (Notting Hill Carvinal, Brazilica, Lord mayors show etc) as well as respectfully teaching in schools, adult weekly classes in East Sussex and London and other workshops around the UK and Europe.
