Deptford Blues Party
The Job Centre & Peckham Soul proudly present 'Deptford Blues Party,' a rockin' soundsystem of Jump Blues, Bluebeat, Calypso, dynamite Ska and Roots Reggae taking place in the heart of Deptford.
'Blues Parties' were house parties started by the newly arrived West Indian community in the 50's and 60's. A place to hear music from home not heard in mainstream clubs, it was also guaranteed entry to a party at a time when the 'colour bar' meant that non-white faces were not always welcome. With the Camberwell Blues Party – everybody's invited!
Hosted by your very own vinyl selecta DJ Craig Jamieson.
