Band on the Wall presents spiritual punk funk band Skeltr and DJ Glue70 at Soup Kitchen. Skeltr come at the audience with sumptuous, technically prolific saxophone solos alongside mysterious samples, synths and loopers for a heart-wrenching and thoughtful cascade of modern and technical soulful funk.
Having recently warmed up for KNOWER at the London Jazz Fest ’17 and played alongside Dinosaur at the famous ‘Oslo Jazzscene’ in Norway – Skeltr are making big waves in their first year. Having had their debut album recently played on Jazz FM and earmarked by Giles Peterson as one to watch, Skeltr’s winding musical journey is one not to be missed.
‘After a matter of seconds of the opening number, it was clear this was going to be one of those extra special gigs.’ Paul Bream, Jazz North East
‘An electrifying new duo in which Sam Healey’s roaring sax lines soar above Craig Hanson’s drum patterns, electronic soundscapes and samples, manipulated live in the moment: a striking, expansive sound with a buzzing energy at its core.’ Steve Mead, Manchester Jazz Festival
This is a standing show.
