craigsmith19.jpg A Disco Royale vibe

Take soul, funk, jazz, boogie, add a smattering of Latin and Afro, and then get Craig Smith to stir it all together. Voila! You’ve got yourself a new DJ residency at Hoochie Coochie.

Craig Smith has been wowing crowds for over 30 years now, from his own famous night ‘Audio Deluxe’ to numerous gigs at just about every major club across the globe. His 10 year residency at The Honeycomb in Edinburgh saw him play, host and gain the respect of all the players on the dance music scene from Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez and Lil’ Louie Vega to DJ Jazzy Jeff. He’s also a veteran of the Southport weekenders and has made his mark as a record producer and remixer of some note with the 6thBorough Project & The Revenge. Hoochie Coochie is the ideal venue for his new night which promises to be another feather in their ever increasingly jaunty hat.

Craig Smith’s Disco Royale, Friday 9 August, Hoochie Coochie, Pilgirm Street, Newcastle, doors 7pm (on stage 9.30pm), free before 10pm then normal door charges apply. hoochiecoochie.co.uk
