13 for 13: Kwa Daniels Edition
The Green Room,
Friday 28th Feb // from 7.30pm.
Free with suggestion donation to the Black Box 13 for 13 campaign.

For the final guest Green Room takeover evening in our series we are delighted to have longtime Black Box friend and family member, Kwa Daniels! Here is what Kwa has planned for the evening –

Aged 13, I sported pastel colours and a tennis shoe but also wasn’t averse to a gold chain, a loose linen slack, an Aran jumper, tucked into aforementioned slacks and a blazer, with a nautical theme of course!! My music taste was just as suspect, but this night might just prove it’s stood the test of time!

Flash back to me completing my latest BASF 90 compilation tape. Order of the day, Bobby Brown, Level 42, Janet Jackson, Swing Out Sister, Cameo, The Blow Monkeys, Alexander O’Neal, Club Nouveau, Junior, Hue & Cry, Bomb The Bass, The Chimes. LL Cool J, Terence Trent Darby, Eric B & Rakim, Ray Parker Junior, Keith Sweat (!!) the list goes on. I’m not sure how age appropriate the themes of these tunes were back in the day!! No change there then!

My plan, which is as loose as those previously mentioned slacks is to share some of these musical gems in a one-off DJ set. But in keeping with the Brilliant Corners Jazz Festival, I have assembled a 13 for 13 band made up of Kaidi Tatham x Utropics, like a DeLorean, transporting me from 1987 back to my future in 2020! I’ll be in my natural habitat, behind multiple decks, selecting loops and tunes for the 13 of 13 band to improvise off, anything from drum and bass and dub to broken beat and nu jazz! Who knows where this will go?? Back to the future, from the past to the present?? Let’s see where this night takes us!!

The Black Box is 13 this year and to celebrate and help them ease into adolescence and fix up their stroppy teen they are aiming to raise £13k! You can donate here- https://blackboxbelfast.ticketsolve.com/products/donation
