- Published in 2017 Lineup
Dansi are an upbeat 6 piece ensemble from the north-east of England, blending folk, rock, pop and world music to create a collage of powerful lyrics and euphoric and bouncy brass lines. Their debut EP launch in 2016 immediately placed them at the forefront of the North East music scene.
After a year of stealing the attention of the live music scene, radio play, touring, festivals and gigs including The Sage Gateshead Hall 2, Solfest and Kendal Calling, Dansi have a solid and continuously growing following of fans. 2017 is only going to be bigger...
“Dansi are that all too rare combination of groove and joy - an uplifting funky palimpsest of drive, funk and songs straight from the heart!” - Dr Dave Camlin, Sage Gateshead
“This is the best unsigned band I have ever seen. Their live show is better than a lot of the arena circuit bands by far. I have witnessed them ignite an unfamiliar crowd from sitting to total dance carnage in the space of 3 songs and carry them through to the final bars. The bands stage presence is incredible” - Sam Johnson, North The Wall Promotions
"...a force to be reckoned with..." - Cumberland and Westmorland Herald.
"One of the most fun and energetic gigs I've been too for a long time. Dansi are brilliant”
- Sarah Jeffery, Chronicle
