Weekend Sun

Weekend Sun is a coming together of 2 minds, and then a few more minds…

Hidden away in the North East of England, DJ Chris Tarn and double bass player Phil Smith discovered they shared a fondness for sampling long forgotten or never discovered dusty vinyl and decided to hook up and bounce around a few ideas. These ideas took a life of their own as they started to work with live musicians and the sound of the band took on more of a live feel. The songs were passed around friends and ended up getting radio plays on Craig Charles’ Funk & Soul Show (BBC 6 Music) and Pete Isaac’s Jelly Jazz Show and were played extensively on local radio stations up in the North East of England.

Influences: Dub, Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz, Reggae, Beats, Easy Listening, Movie Soundtracks, 70’s Porn flicks, Klaus, Herr Last, Ninja Tune, House, James Brown, Funk

Since their debut album ‘Forever Tomorrow’ (Hero Records) was released in August 2014 Weekend Sun have continued to release singles and videos and are regulars on the north-east festival circuit and Chris Donald’s Soul Show on BBC Radio Newcastle and Teeside.
