REP: The Swinging DadsDayMonday (Monthly) Time18:00 - 20:00 Bio
The Swinging Dads met as expectant fathers at an ante-natal class in 2005 when 50 Cent’s Hate It Or Love It rang polyphonically from Luke’s phone. After a knowing glance, a few after-work pints, a couple of family holidays spent together and a very embarrassing best man speech, Ben and Luke now have more free time to reinvent themselves. DJing as part of the Brudenell Groove crew (bloody millennials), they seek to teach the young blood how to party like it’s the 90’s, through their penchant for all things compost, crumpets and crispy golden-era Hip-Hop. Their KMAH slot showcases rap, poetry and spoken word from all over the world, with an emphasis on recurrent themes found in HIp-Hop. Expect jazz-soaked boom-bap articulated in different languages and the chinking of mugs. Both neither confirm nor deny this is symptomatic of a midlife crisis.
