dq music line-up
DJ Anne Frankenstein (London based DJ, weekend presenter on Jazz FM, host of the Late Lab and Folded Wing's Adventures in Sound, and usually found playing sets in Spiritland, Ace Hotel and Blues Kitchen) took to the decks on Friday evening with a perfect blend of rock, hip hop, country, blues and anything else good, providing a great soundtrack to an evening of good food, good drink and good chat.
She was back on Saturday evening too, ahead of a headline performance from The Graveltones who brought some Blues, Rock & Roots to the DQ stage.
Jimmy O (Guitar/Vox) & Mikey Sorbello (drums) make up this magnetic two-piece and spent those first few years relentlessly playing the dingy clubs of the UK. With their NO REHEARSAL policy, they racked up an incredible number of shows and became known for never playing the same set twice.
They issued their debut album ‘Don’t Wait Down’ at the end of 2013 and since then the band’s reputation worldwide has grown with countless touring, syncs, endorsements, accolades, the release of their 2nd album ‘Love Lies Dying’, and a live album with Brooklyn Brewery Records in 2016. DirtQuakers were in for a treat.
And it didn’t end there. On Saturday, we were also joined by singer, songwriter, busker and new age traveller, Cam Cole, with his one-man band show influenced by Folk, Delta Blues, Grunge and Rock N' Roll. It was the perfect vibe for the DQ weekend!
