Call of the Jungle: Stretchfoot

  • Meow 9 Edward Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Stretchfoot takes a journey deep into the soul of what is now a now 20-year phenomenon. During the recession of the early nineties, dance music producers dug out a six-second break from the drum solo of GC Coleman on 'Amen, Brother' by The Winstons.
Extraordinary yet unruly, this organic old-school beat injected energy into both dancefloor culture and dispirited communities with its fierce and provocative power. Now, as civilisation languishes once again under unsympathetic regimes, an urgency to unite, empower and edify existence is reawakening a rhythmic rebellion. However, at this time, the revolution is being commandeered by a radical troop of musical guerrillas: Stretchfoot is Joey Callwood (gat), Ed Zuccollo (keys), Johnny J-Low Lawrence (bass), and D Mathiassen (drums).
This event is part of the Wellington Jazz Festival 2017
