THE HORSE PUPPETS

8:00pm - 11:00Pm / FREE ENTRY | DOORS 7PM | HAPPY HOUR 7-8PM | GIG STARTS 8PM

We are really looking forward to local band The Horse Puppets hitting the M&P stage tonight to debut their new tracks. Come down and have a listen, you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks to a ‘borrow board’ behind the scenes of The Invisible Wind Factory, Liverpool, a Horse Puppet that should have been returned by ‘Molly’ 2 weeks before gave the band a new name.  A good job really as the previous suggestion of ‘The Suitcase 17’ was vetoed by Tommy’s missus who said it sounded like a front page headline for a murder in the 60’s.

The 5 piece band from Manchester, soon grew into a 6 piece, then a 7 piece as more instruments and sounds were added when recording their debut album.  ‘Sorry For The Inconvenience’ was recorded at Paul and Helen’s home studio in Manchester. 

The band have a hybrid indie sound like the more ambient side of The Black Keys or The Arctic Monkeys, mixed with country pedal steel guitar, violin, double bass, electronic synths and large vocal harmonies.

THE BAND
Helen Blytheway - Vocals, piano, accordion
Paul Blytheway - Vocal, guitar
Tommy Fuller - Upright and electric bass
Andrzej Baranek: Piano, Organ, Synth
Josh Savage: Drums
Poppy Smallwood: Vocals and Cello
Chris Hillman: Pedal Steel and Dobro guitar

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!

Musical Mechanical has recruited a rabble of mischievous northerners to form Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, a traditional New Orleans Second Line.

Loud Noises are a feisty fIve-piece brass outfit conceived on the streets of Leeds in 2016. This powerful combination of gutsy brass playing, daring repertoire and constant crowd interaction has already proven to get crowds moving. Loud Noises bridge the gap between contemporary brass music and high octane dance. Blurring the line between band and audience Loud Noises might be the most interactive and engaging band in Britain.

Loud Noises aim to push the boundaries of modern music by adapting their eclectic musical tastes into upbeat interactive performances. Taking inspiration from Too Many Zooz expect a twist on traditional jazz tunes ranging all the way up to Ghostbusters and the Back Street Boys. The new addition of a drum pad and various pedals allow the band to toy around more than ever before turning their small set up into an awe inspiring entity.

Loud Noises take to the streets at 20:30 to parade some of their absolute best tunes before their gig at 21:30. The gig is £5 OTD, and if you get to us before 20:30 to get your stamp then you won't have to queue to get back in! This is the last of our Big Brass Beats parades, so you won’t want to miss it. There’s something very special about following a brass band playing your favourite songs through the streets of the Northern Quarter!

Soul Grenades

9:30pm - 1:00am / £5 OTD | DOORS 5PM | HAPPY HOUR 5-7.30PM | GIG STARTS 9.30PM

This band had us at the yellow vinyl that dropped through our letter box back in late 2017. Their first gig at the club blew everyone away so it was a no brainer this band would be part of this year’s summer line up!

Based in London, hailing from Hackney, Montenegro, Moscow, Sydney and beyond, Soul Grenades have established themselves as one of the most exciting live acts on the funk and soul scene. Fronted by singer Sabina Challenger, the band boasts a super-tight rhythm section, blistering horns and a burgeoning song book of original music. Fusing their many influences, encompassing crate-digging rarities from the 1970’s to contemporary dance floor fillers, Soul Grenades deliver no-nonsense, hard-hitting, uptempo funk that compels people to Get Up Offa That Thing and dance.

Soul Grenades’ debut album Pullin’ the Pin was released in July 2017 and received extensive airplay and critical acclaim worldwide.

Soul Grenades will be playing songs from their debut album, plus exclusive, as-yet-unheard material as they work on tunes for their second release.
