We are very happy to see the mighty Mr Wilson's Second Liners returning to the club tonight for what is guaranteed to be a blinder of a gig!

Never has M&P's felt more like a cross between a New Orleans Dive mixed in with the hey day of Manchester's infamous Hacienda night club. If you missed the 90's in Manchester, Mr. Wilson's Second Liners will take you back to an era missed by almost every Mancunian who raved!

Quintessential New Orleans meets 90s club classics…a rave funeral without the body. 

In New Orleans, funerals are celebrated in style, with noisy brass bands processing through the streets. The main section of the parade is known as First Line, but the real fun starts with the Second Line, those who follow the band to enjoy the music, marching with the musicians and twirling parasols or waving handkerchiefs. 

Welcome to Second Lining.

Musical Mechanical has recruited a rabble of mischievous northerners to form Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, a traditional New Orleans Second Line. However, this is no sombre occasion: Mr Wilson’s expend their collective musical talent paying homage to the diehard days of the Hacienda, 90s club culture and its greatest hero, Mr Tony Wilson.

This gig is STANDING ROOM only. The reason behind this is we want you, the audience to interact with Mr Wilson's as they will not only be on the stage but also playing throughout the club. If anyone has been to a Mr Wilson gig at M&P’s, you’ll know everyone is up dancing the minute they play their first tune so this time, you’ll have plenty of room to shake your booty to the band! PLUS we've also bagged "Factors" who will be on the decks from 8.30pm to rev us all up for Mr Wilson's hitting the stage at 10pm. "Factors" will also be DJ'ing between Mr Wilson's 3 Sets of Live music and after the band finish at 1am. It's going to be one sweet night of Hacienda Classics!

The bad news is, if you haven't got a ticket you're scuppered. We will be releasing 20 Tickets at 7pm tonight, which you can buy OTD. We have had A LOT of calls, tweets, FB messages and emails about these tickets so be quick. Once they are gone that's it. It's ONE ticket per person too so if there's a few of you get down early, queue up and hope Santa Claus is listening to your Christmas wish of getting a ticket.
