Posted by external sounds on February 1, 2013

It may be the middle of winter with snow falling and the tempreture dropping rapidly, but External Sounds is bringing you a little piece of summer in the form of Mr Whippy Soundsystem who's pulling up at The Purple Room on Saturday 9th of February.

More accustomed to the surroundings of his funky 1970s ice-cream van converted into a deejay booth, we are bringing him in from the cold to serve up his eclectic mix of dancefloor delights. Based over Wesht he's rocked pavements, parks and all sorts of open spaces from Galway to Dun Laoghaire all from the back of his loveable, tropical ice-cream van, under the swirl of the world's only 2-meter high Ice-Cream-Cone Mirror Ball!

His dj sets are a tasty blend of Funk, Soul, Roots, Reggae and beyond that's sure to get your hips shaken. For a taste of what to expect here is his live set recorded at Electric Picnic 2012. Support on the night is by Rob Mullen (External Sounds) and Caroline Gormley. Doors 11pm. Admission is 5 euro before midnight and 7 euro after.
