The Dub Jazz Soundsystem… A booty shaking, mind-bending mix-up of heavy dub and psychedelic modal jazz, brought to you by a mischievous collective of jazz dissidents and session musician monsters from across the country.
Welcome to the Matt and Phreds Soul Jam! This is the one night in Manchester that brings together musicians from all corners of the country to create music on the broadest and most innovative tangents.
A powerful trio featuring three musicians of international stature, playing a heady mixture of jazz, blues, funk and soul. Expect to hear amongst the originals to hear covers of tunes by acts as diverse as Tom Waits, Ray Charles and The Stone Roses. As a homecoming gig for Jon, expect a highly energised performance.
Kyla Brox can be tender, urgent and gritty: she blurs the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. The daughter of blues singer Victor Brox, Kyla started singing on-stage at the age of 12 and has several albums to her name, including the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the stripped and sensitive Grey Sky Blue (2009).
RESOLUTION 88 was started in 2012 as an original funk project. The band ethos is to create exciting new live music that makes people dance, recording as live takes in the studio (similar to groups such as Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters) and performing at venues where the band are right there amongst the crowd.
It's Mardi Gras at Matt and Phreds with the fantastic Nightcreatures Band!
