DJ DEREK out of retirement for London show

Bristol reggae legend DJ DEREK will later this month come out of retirement for a one-off show at a familiar venue.

The Road to Carnival presents DJ DEREK and THE SCOUNDRELS on 19 August at the Notting Hill Arts Club (NHAC) with tickets priced at £8 in advance.

DJ DEREK has been behind the 'Sweet Memory Sounds' events for 13 years at NHAC and comes out of retirement to play a special date at the same venue where he performed his last set at the end of 2013.

Fans can expect an inimitable selection interspersed with Derek's observations on the mic as he charts the history of reggae, ska, R&B, calypso and dancehall at the carnival.

London's THE SCOUNDRELS, a blues-rock and 1950s R&B-inspired band, play a live set too.
