Following the FML Friday Sessions in the Docks Beers taproom, the Disco, Funk and House project comes to the Docks Academy for a night of summer vibes on Saturday 15th July!

Funk My Life is the disco, funk and house brainchild of Daz and Bri (DJ BY Name and DJ Bri Buckle). After packing out venues in Harrogate and Wakefield, and graduating to HiFi and Beaver Works, FML has landed in Grimsby’s Church of Beer and Music.

Get ready for nostalgic vibes – old skool piano classics infused with NuDisco and a dose of today’s current House sound. Docks Academy will be filled with classic anthems and current heaters and Baz (MarmaJam) will bring extra funk to the party!.

Tickets are still available for this event, starting at only £5, plus fees.

alabama 3 | 20.07.23

South London genre-blending storytellers Alabama 3 will perform at Docks Academy in Grimsby on Thursday 20th July.

Formed in Brixton in 1995 when Jake Black met Rob Spragg at a rave in Peckham, Alabama 3’s sound fuses country and blues styles with elements of Acid House.

The band’s music has been featured in numerous films, TV shows and video games, along with being sampled by other musicians, with their best-known song being “Woke Up This Morning”, which was used for the opening credits of the hit TV series The Sopranos.

We only have less than a 1/3 of tickets left for this event, so grab yours below!

we are scientists | 30.07.23

Crosstown Concerts present the legendary New York band We Are Scientists on Sunday 30th July.

Their debut album ‘With Love and Squalor’, sold more than 100,000 copies within the first six months, and saw the band become a breakthrough success with their first major label release. This was then followed up by their sophomore album ‘Brain Thrust Mastery’, which along with support from the likes of Jo Whiley and Edith Bowman, would see the poppy, hook-laden release reach #11 in the UK charts.

With appearances at Truck Festival and Kendal Calling plus more over the Summer. This is your chance to see the band in a much smaller setting.
