Having started in summer 2017, Vintage Beats has quickly built up a large following in just a few months.
Hosted by Tulka Trio, a collective made up of James Berkeley, Sam Hughes, and John Wright, 3 musicians with a background in hip hop and jazz and everything Dilla. With all the biggest neo-soul/hip hop/jazz/rnb tunes from the last few decades, played with high levels of musicianship, it's safe to say the vibe at Vintage Beats is something to be experienced.
The atmosphere is helped along by a crowd who come for the love of the music, and ever changing run of guest brass players, singers, and mcs who join in. This is not a night to be missed.
Winner of British Blues Award for 'Emerging Artist' of 2014.
Big warm tones from his resonator guitar with a powerful and direct vocal style became the trademarks of the sound. Add rolling grooves, multi-layered percussion,vocals, harmonicas and myriad shakers to create a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.
