9:30pm - 12:30am / £5 OTD | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7.30PM | GIG STARTS 9.30PM

New York Brass band were one of the first contemporary Brass Bands to play at M&P's. With a full-on 8-piece New Orleans inspired gig, these guys certainly set the bar for a night of cool Brass sounds!

New York Brass Band are North Yorkshire’s only contemporary New Orleans inspired Brass Band. Hailing from the ancient streets of York the band are at the forefront of a funky brass revolution that is sweeping the UK. Inspired by Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels, Hot 8, Youngblood and Brassroots, NYBB pack a powerful punch of relentless drums, rumbling tuba and wailing horns… nothing kicks a party into gear like the sound of a smokin’ New Orleans Mardi Gras Jazz Band

New York Brass Band is a powerhouse 8-piece, with a line-up of percussion, sax, trumpets, trombones and sousaphone. The band take its inspiration from contemporary New Orleans musicians, but have a repertoire that ranges from Marvin Gaye to George Michael, from Cee-Lo Green to Stevie Wonder, with some funky, gritty northern originals thrown in for good measure

The band was formed in November 2010 by James Lancaster, and quickly established itself as a dynamic, flexible band who can perform outside acoustically at a drinks reception or street event, or amplified on a festival stage or club. No gimmicks, no backing tracks, no auto tune, this is music that gets people dancing and a band who make the audience feel part of the show!

Visiting the club at the weekend? Be prepared to dance or kick back and enjoy the band and atmosphere! People like to get up and dance in front of the stage. If you prefer a more laid back night, we recommend a Wednesday or Thursday evening.

PYJÆN

PYJAEN.jpg

PYJÆN have had a rollercoaster of a year since emerging on to the blossoming London jazz scene. Their unique sound has pushed the jazz tradition into new directions combining rock, electro, afrobeat, hiphop and fusion. It’s also pushed them into some incredible venues around the UK and Europe including the EFG London Jazz Festival and La Petite Halle (Paris)

PYJÆN will be sharing music from their upcoming debut album, a result of the continuing musical growth of these young musicians.

Their debut single ’Nah’, released in April, carefully blends infectious bubbling grooves with melodious horn lines. A five piece, rooted in the improvisatory tradition of the jazz greats, PYJÆN thrives on the energetic buzz of crossover styles.

SHYFINGER

SHYFINGER.jpg

9:00pm - 12:00am / FREE ENTRY | DOORS 6PM | HAPPY HOUR 6-8PM | GIG STARTS 9PM

Having been musicians for quite some time, the members of Shyfinger came together, desperate to have a band with an interesting name.

 

All the good names were taken.
 ALL OF THEM. 

But this did not deter the plucky crew of instrument manglers, bashers and blowers. Oh no. It made them more RESOLUTE. And thus, they did put together bits of funky riffing, and jazzy noodling, and some of that “head-nod shit,” leaving out the face-melting solos so beloved of musos everywhere, and verily it became a set.



And oh, they did practice. 


And they did write.


And they did drink tea, of varying strength and exotic flavourings.



And they were happy for now they have a band to which you can listen.


Good luck, and godspeed!

THE BAND
Biff Roxby - Trombones
Fran Lydiatt - Keys
Ellis Davies - Baritone Guitar
