MR WILSON'S SECOND LINERS
We are very happy to see the mighty Mr Wilson's Second Liners returning to the club tonight for what is guaranteed to be a blinder of a gig! This will be the best Good Friday you've ever had!
Never has M&P's felt more like a cross between a New Orleans Dive mixed in with the hey day of Manchester's infamous Hacienda night club. If you missed the 90's in Manchester, Mr. Wilson's Second Liners will take you back to an era missed by almost every Mancunian who raved!
Quintessential New Orleans meets 90s club classics…a rave funeral without the body. In New Orleans, funerals are celebrated in style, with noisy brass bands processing through the streets. The main section of the parade is known as First Line, but the real fun starts with the Second Line, those who follow the band to enjoy the music, marching with the musicians and twirling parasols or waving handkerchiefs.
Welcome to Second Lining.
Musical Mechanical has recruited a rabble of mischievous northerners to form Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, a traditional New Orleans Second Line. However, this is no sombre occasion: Mr Wilson’s expend their collective musical talent paying homage to the diehard days of the Hacienda, 90s club culture and its greatest hero, Mr Tony Wilson.
