Supabad, the James Brown-inspired funk band from Bangkok that likes it "loud, hard and dirty," returns to The FCC Phnom Penh for two shows in August. A big band for a big man, the touring ten-piece's horn-rich homage to a musical and cultural revolutionary cuts it with the best of them. "James Brown completely revolutionized the world of modern music," says Supabad guitarist, percussionist and vocalist David "DJ Kermie" Cameron, adding that the "sequined suits, jump suits, hairy chest, big hair -- JB's time in the '70s, when he was truly becoming the Number One Soul Brother, that seems to work best for us."
With his iPod and a library of Latin jazz, DJ Jimmy Campbell brings the spirits of 1950s Havana to The FCC Phnom Penh, where salsa partners will turn The FCC's upstairs dining room into a dance floor. Dancing starts on Saturday 25th at 8:30 p.m. and goes until late. The more experienced dancers are always happy to dip and twirl with new followers of the craze. No cover.
