Don't worry if you hadn't yet heard about this new night up until now, because it only begun last week on Sunday 25th September 2011. Although it has to be said that you haven't missed much, you've certainly missed enough! After travelling down to North West London to review the Launch of the event last week, here's my take on what occurred on the night...
Not quite knowing what to expect at the event, I ventured down to NW Wine Bar to find resident DJ's Bugzy Sound, Doopz Squad, and Ants International each taking it in turns to provide the musical entertainment. After initially wondering what sort of music would be played at the event, it wasn't long before my mind was set to rest.
Upon entrance to the venue, Kelly Rowland - Motivation happened to be one of the very first songs that I heard, and I think it's safe to say that there is no shortage of versatility in the selection of music at this event. Whilst it is understandable that some people might have expected a night provided by Gappy Ranks to consist purely of Reggae, Dancehall and Bashment, this was certainly not the case!
The genres provided by the entertainers ranged from R&B and Hip Hop, to Reggae and Dancehall which coincidentally took us on a musical journey which stretched over the years. Reminiscing on Dancehall riddims that we don't hear everyday such as the Joyride riddim, Log On riddim etc, and then ending the night selecting tracks such as Ashanti - Foolish, the DJ's successfully fulfilled their purpose of catering for all types of music lovers on the night.
With a very warm and welcoming atmosphere inside of the venue, I would say that Gappy Sundayz is the perfect way to end your weekend, or on the other hand, to kick off your week! Perhaps not in the sense of feeling revitalised, but in the sense of living life to the fullest and enjoying each day as if it were your last. Ladies have no excuse whatsoever seeing as admission for them is free all night, whilst guys will only be charged a mere £5 on the door! With no obligation to buy tickets or be charged a substantial amount on the door, it can easily be a spontaneous decision for a nice night out each and every Sunday! Starting from 9pm and lasting up until 2am, why not come down and check it out for yourself!
