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!

Fat-Suit is on a collective journey through music, using jazz as the point of departure to explore a myriad soundworlds. This ensemble of rotating musicians originated in the collegiate surroundings of both the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Strathclyde University, but it has wasted no time enervating the already vibrant jazz scene in Glasgow.

The cast has been assembled from a diversity of musical backgrounds and it includes folk musicians with finesse, house artists with grit, rockers with attitude and hard boppers with style. The influence of contemporary exponents of jazz, funk and fusion such as Snarky Puppy, Vulfpeck and GoGoPenguin are obvious influences, but Fat-Suit are already opening up fresh lines of enquiry. The approach may appear looser and more relaxed, but the aim is to entertain as much as it is to dazzle with technical ability.

Fat-Suit have a strength in depth as well as in numbers, and can call on some of Scotland’s finest young musicians, many of whom were making waves even before graduating.

This is the sound of next generation jazz, where highly informed and extremely open-minded players curate new music for a new century.

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.

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.
