Daniel Docherty at the Castle Hotel, Manchester

19 September / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Hailing from Glasgow, Daniel Docherty is a talented singer-songwriter and virtuosic guitarist. His is a tender and intimate style full of emotion and natural charisma. Inspired by greats like Joni Mitchell and John Martyn, Eric Clapton and Eva Cassidy, Daniel has a classically informed approach but very much brings it into the modern era with a unique artistic twist.

Daniel's principal aim is always to tell stories with his moving music. As well as this, drawing on his experience as a busker, he is mindful of entertaining audiences with catchy choruses. Daniel has come up through the ranks to get spotted by a major label and is now signed to PIAS. One of his biggest hits to date has been ‘Colours’, which climbed high on the Spotify viral chart peaking at #6 and there’s much more to come.

Catch this intimate show at the Castle, we’re sure it won’t be the last you see of him!

Banco De Gaia

21 October / 20:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets 

Toby Marks, the creative force behind Banco De Gaia, is one of the world’s leading exponents of globally inspired eclectic electronica. Mixing electronica with acoustic instruments and vox, his work defies genre classification.

Banco De Gaia cut his teeth on the early 90s Ambient Dub compilations (a precursor of the “chill out” marketing phenomenon). In 1994 he released his first studio album Maya on Planet Dog records, and followed this in 1995 with the critically acclaimed Last Train To Lhasa. Both albums reached No1 in the UK independent charts and featured in the national album chart top 40.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘the one with the train on’ in 2015, Disco Gecko released a limited edition version of the album and Banco put together a live 3-piece band featuring bassist James Eller (The The, Teardrop Explodes) and drummer Ted Duggan (The Beat, Seize The Day) alongside VJ Patrick Dunn. The shows were so well received that they are continuing to play live together, with a new studio album 'The 9th of Nine Hearts' planned for 2016.  We look forward to welcoming them back to Band on the Wall.

Just announced: The Souljazz Orchestra, 19th July.

The Souljazz Orchestra

19 July / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Since first arriving on the Canadian scene at the turn of the millennium, the Souljazz Orchestra has never stopped pushing the limits of its signature sound: an explosive clash of sour, jazz, afro, latin and Caribbean styles, unleashed by blaring majestic horns, dusty vintage keyboards, and an arsenal of earthquaking percussion.

Now celebrating its 14th year, the Souljazz Orchestra continues its impressive run of memorable albums while years of relentless touring have formed the Souljazz Orchestra’s live concerts into the stuff of legends - more often than not culminating in ecstatic, sweat-soaked, cathartic affairs, mixing pulsating arrangements with eruptive improvisations.

So far, the Ottawa-based sextet has been fortunate enough to bring its dynamite show to over two dozen countries across the globe, sharing bills along the way with heavyweights such as Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Femi Kuti and they showing no signs of slowing down – “Souljazz is more than just a band for us, it’s a way of life”
