Saturday Headliner – Huey Morgan
Huey Morgan is the much-loved, charismatic frontman of acclaimed rock and hip hop band Fun Lovin’ Criminals, formed in 1993 and with seven albums under their belts. The New Yorker is also a fine DJ who has a whole lifetime’s worth of experience to draw upon. He has played sets all over the globe, taking to the turntables at major parties, more intimate shows and acclaimed clubs and festivals in equal measure. In every DJ set, he retains a great sense of pace and balance and always excels at dropping the right records the right time.
In terms of sounds, Huey, who was born in New York in 1968, is a skilled guitarist, but also has a passion for many other types of music. Being half-Puerto Rican and half-Irish, he has a varied musical background that finds him just as able to reach for loose funk, soul, reggae, cool jazz and hip hop as indie rock – and indeed anything else. Famously funny and full of charm, Huey always carries this over into the sets he plays. What’s more, this rock renaissance talent is also regularly on TV shows such as Nevermind the Buzzcocks and is a fine TV presenter and writer with a wealth of knowledge about the music he plays.
