Gip Dammone & Lubi’s Soul Shack
Saturday 8 April 2017
Gip Dammone is one of Leeds’ most recognisable and best loved figures. For many, he is the stallion of Headingley’s swanky Italian restaurant, Salvo’s. But, for many years, Gip’s role was of a different kind: as a member of the Dig! Family, he fed the city’s dance floors tasty plate-fulls of jazz, funk and soul.
With his regular Retrospect show on KMAH Radio, Gip continues to dish out the good stuff. For this uplifting festive party, we couldn’t think of a more fitting DJ to invite back to the HiFi Club to take control of the Soul Shack for the evening.
DJ Lubi is the mainstay of the Leeds music scene.
From his time with the DIG! Family of DJs in the 1990s, to his current work as a promoter at The Wardrobe with his Soul Rebels night, Lubi Jovanovic has kept latin, funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop alive in the city.
He’s every latin music fan’s muse, having put together 45 compilation albums in the genre. It is through an obsession for meticulous crate digging that has led him to be held in such high regard – and we are really excited to say that we’ll be hearing the fruits of his labours on Saturday 4th June at the HiFi club as he takes charge of the Soul Shack.Time10pm
