The Public Opinion Six are supporting the album launch of another band from the HopeStreet Recordings label. It’ll be a fiery night of hot afrobeat and heavy salsa. The show is next Thursday Sept 3rd and you can buy tickets online.
Quarter Street take you to the heart of classic salsa inspired by the raw sounds of New York in the 70′s and the passion of Salsa luminaries such as Eddie Palmieri and Ray Barreto. Quarter Street revive an era where the music of the streets resonated with the voice of the people. Salsa dura was born on the mean streets of New York in the 70′s now it’s back. Quarter Street take their cues from the seminal record labels Fania and Tico Records and charge straight ahead at the 21st century. There’s been a lot of rough and real analog funk, soul and afro vinyl material released in the last couple of decades but few have flown the flag for the revival of hard-out analog latin music. Quarter Street are doing it. With supports from Public Opinion 6 and Emma Peel, you don’t want to miss this afro/salsa explosion on Thursday 3rd September.
