Band on the Wall presents Free Jazz – a free-entry event showcasing some of the most exciting new artists pushing genre boundaries, playing jazz, electronic, hip-hop, funk, soul and experimental sounds. Sign up for free entry and discover new music from the likes of Aeon Fitch, Mr Mustard, Lieko Quintet and Moon Thieves.
Aeon Fitch is a multi instrumentalist based in Manchester UK. With music influences like Sigur Ros, Bjørk, Binkbeats and Bill Laurance he has created an ethereal sound like no other.
Mr Mustard are a new Manchester outfit that you need to hear, stay tuned for releases, but in the mean time come down to Free Jazz to see their live show.
Lieko Quintet is a Manchester-based group turning contemporary jazz on its head with melodic, groove-infused compositions. Treading a path somewhere between soul music and folk song, they use melody as a focal point for moving between riff-based interplay and free-form improvisation. When blended together with the rhythmic precision of old school funk and cathartic energy of Nigerian afrobeat, the result is a brain-melting concoction of new-world explorations. Their new EP ‘Amethyst’ lands on 4th January.
Moon Thieves fuse live electronica with funk pop in an effervescent blend of 2-piece instrumental wizardry.
This is a standing show.
