Pay tribute to the 70's with 'Starsky & Hutch' 

The unmissable Soultrain Event of the Year. They were two of coolest cops of the 70's. David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser. Streetsmart Starsky and smooth-talking Hutch + the most memorable character on the classic show was Huggy Bear (originally played by Antonio Fargas). Huggy Bear was basically the coolest dude on the set of plain clothes cops taking down pimps, players and pushers, dope dealers, muggers and more bad guys, all from behind the wheel of their funky red 1974 Torino. And when they put down their badges, the ladies get plenty of action too - Hot Chicks, Cool Dudes and Bad Muthas.

Starsky and Hutch

It's the 1970s and all across America there's a mood for change in the inner city. Black movies and black music are going hand in hand to spread the message... street smart soul and strutting funk grooves, inspired by the word on the street it's Dynamite Funk & Bad-assed Street Grooves ....... This new years eve Soultrain are taking you back in time to the 70's, the city of brotherly love that provided the blueprint, in particular through the Philly based labels, Philly Groove and Philadelphia International, with their smooth, string laden disco-inflected sounds and velveteen soft vocal delivery leading the way. The 70's also saw the invention of the sensual soul loverman in the form of Isaac Hayes, Barry White and Al Green and the political agitator through Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield. What followed were some of the greatest, most beautiful soul tracks culled from the decade.

It was also The Blaxploitation era, true classics from the likes of Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Dennis Coffey, James Brown, The Delfonics, Bobby Womack and loads more from pivotal fims of the era such as 'Cleopatra Jones', 'Coffy', 'Shaft', 'Superfly' and 'Across 110th Street' 'Jackie Brown', which clearly pay homage to the genre to name but a few , we just know you're gonna dig this!"

Just how cool is it to wear those 70's fashions? Huggy says It's beautiful, you know what I'm saying, to be able to step back in time. You've got to always go back in time if you want to move forward and that's what the 70's was all about. With Champagne for the best dressed and instant photoghraphs the unmissable, The Soultrain Event Of The Year, STARKSY & HUTCH Tribute, New Years Eve at Ashton Court Mansion with Huggy Bear.
