Gideon Conn completed an art degree in Manchester where he quickly established a reputation for playing the piano in the main gallery and using the whole building as his studio space for outlandish sculptures.
The band formed around Gideon in 2005, and have gone from strength to strength. They have wowed at major festivals and toured with some fantastic artists including Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, 6 Day Riot and Jason Mraz. They released a catchy, hip hop/indie crossover single called I Want You Around which was well received by radio – playlisted on Xfm and awarded breakfast single of the week on BBC 6 music as well being championed by Huw Stevens and Rob da Bank on Radio 1.
Gideon’s debut album entitled New Bop Sounds is due for release in August 2010. Catch this maverick provocateur back on his home turf for what promises to be another great night out at The Band.
This concert will begin at 8pm but Picturehouse Cafe Bar open for drinks and delicious food from 5.30pm
