Neville presents Jazz Funk Soul.

JazzFunkSoul plays ONLY the very best Jazz Funk Soul and Soulful Garage/Soulful House.

With a few of the best 70s and 80s Anthems, and a lot of the less heard Classics from THE dance decade 75-84, with Soulful House classics, thrown in!

We’re pleased that when we resurrected this format (plus Soulful House) that other clubs over the following years also did it, to make the scene even better.

Virtually no club played Jazz Funk when the club started and it was brought back – with a bang!
