The Manchester University Big Band (MUBB)
Formed in 2004 to give students the opportunity to play large ensemble jazz to a very high standard, MUBB plays an eclectic mix of jazz from 1920s swing to experimental contemporary works by European composers.

Formed recently by Alex Hill and Graham McCusker, Marouli are a 5-piece band based in Manchester playing original, melodic, jazz-infused songs. Influences include Kurt Elling, Steely Dan and Randy Newman.

Liquid Beach
Sun-Soaked Grooves From A Rain-Drenched City.

From the shore to the streets, Liquid Beach is a project born from a shared love of all things that groove. The future soul trio from Manchester honed their craft of carefully blended jazz, soul and house through the vibrant and diverse scene of the northern city. Calling upon their diverse influences they aim to seamlessly blend the lines between live instrumentation and electronic production. Songs that sound just as at home on sandy beaches as they do in the darkest of night clubs.
