One of the originals of Smokestack with the owner Si Ord & DJ john hope to set up a platform & permanent home for all aspects of live music & DJ’s from the realms of blues, jazz, funk & soul.

DJ Chico Malo currently plays host to “root down” (smokestacks Saturday night) now in its 19th year it is one of the longest running funk, soul & jazz dance nights in the UK. 

“Jazz is the teacher & funk is the preacher”
