His voice has been compared to the mighty James Brown, but Lee Fields is no knock-off. He’s the real thing. Listening to the soul sounds coming through his transistor radio in the late fifties and early sixties, a young Lee was hooked. Through the seventies, he made his living touring the legendary Chitlin’ Circuit in the southern US, alongside some of the greatest names in blues and soul history, later landing a gig with Kool and the Gang before their rise to fame. But as the Seventies came to a close, disco began its reign and his soul career plummeted. For decades, Lee Fields thought his music dreams were dead. But with one phone call, everything changed…

Followed by an after party in Lo-Res with a DJ set by Qool DJ Marv
