Oystercatcher is a music collective based in Manchester. At its core are multi-instrumentalists Caitlin Laing (vocals) and Tom Chapman (bass), although the line-up changes fluidly, ranging from a duo to an orchestra and everything in between.
The Project is a quartet of young lads loitering around the side streets of Jazz. It fills up the vacant space between Kate Bush’s melodies, Dave Holland’s rhythms and Sex Pistols’ harmony. It lives through original compositions that relate to Christmas, day-dreaming, Duke Ellington, good friends etc…
Born out of the snake pit of LS6 house parties, Vipertime draw from the depths of spiritual jazz and post punk to create improvised music for the dance floor, combining the mesmeric forms and harmonies of 70s Addis with the ferocity of 60s Detroit.
Greyhound is a neo-soul collective based in manchester. we are inspired by the sounds of Moonchild, Erykah Badu & D’Angelo.
This is a standing show.
