SMC Presents Charlie Hart & The Equators
Entry Requirements: Under 18s to be accompanied by an appropriate adult
Charlie Hart's Equators are a collective of London based R&B/jazz musicians, exploring the roots of the music they've spent a lifetime playing. The music, broadly speaking African-leaning R&B, is full blooded, uplifting and unprocessed. Originating in the 1990s, these Equators are fronted by Charlie on fiddle and vocals (Ronnie Lane’s Slim Chance/Chris Jagger/People’s band with Sting/Dizz & The Doormen etc) along with the astonishingly dynamic sax and harp man, Frank Mead, better known for his work with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings. The line-up is completed by the brilliant guitarists Ed Deane &/or Jimmy Roach, with a dream rhythm section comprising the legendary Les Morgan on drums, and virtuoso bassist Phil Scragg. The Equators have just recorded their debut album 'Masansani Club', produced by Charlie Hart, Frank Mead and Phil Scragg and available on Deep River Records, a ground-breaking Deptford based label.
