Mr. Gladwin Wright, better known as Gladdy Wax, is one of the all time great soundmen. He will be joining us on the decks and the mic, to headline the show. Gladdy has been operating at the forefront of British reggae for over 40 years. He started out in Birmingham, being associated with some of that city's most revered outfits. Since then, he’s operated his own synonymous Soundsystem, appearing at Carnival for well over 36 years consecutively, as well as numerous other venues – including The Southbank, with Dennis Bovell, last Summer. Many regard him as the King of Carnival. He has an awesome collection of top tunes and selects to entertain.Gladwin Wright is also know as the immortal Mr Vinyl Fingers. You’ll hear music here that you won’t hear elsewhere, selected to a nicety. Mr. Fingers is also a mean micman and made records, as a singer, back in the day.Earlier in the evening warm up selection will come from young lionesses Duppy Sista Sound, who’ll be playing in their own inimitable style and fashion. Following them there will be more of the semi-live action for which the Club is known. The other Mr. Wax will be spinnin’ the rhythms. On the mic there will be toasting and singjay action,live and direct, from the great Doc Murdoch. There will also be live instrumentation led by Wicked Will on trumpet. With extra special guest vocalists the fabulous Sandeva. We’re looking forward to another blinding evening of live mixes from the great Prince Fatty on the desk.After a succession of blazing sessions since Lockdown, we expect this night to be one of our most memorable. An enhanced sound system is a feature of this popular night, held in a convivial boozer.The palatial, discrete garden will feature Rocksteady all afternoon and have the evening session piped out to it. It has developed into a firm favourite chill out zone for Club stalwarts. Hot food will be available throughout the early evening. Reach early and put on your dancing shoes.———–Venue————18+ No ID, No EntryGetting there;Closest train station: Ladywell (5 min walk) or Lewisham (15 min walk)316 Lewisham High St, London SE13 6JZ————Tickets———–Free before 6pm£3 after 6pm https://foxandfirkin.eventcube.io/events/35016/deptford-dub-club-gladdy-wax-special Fox and Firkin, 316 Lewisham High Street, London, SE13 6JZ
