Lescar tonight!

Just a quick reminder about our gig at the Lescar in Sheffield tonight! We’re really excited about it as its our first chance to try out a couple of new things we’ve been working on, so make sure you get down there early to get yourself a decent spot! Doors open 8.30pm, music starts at 9 sharp and its £5/£4 entry – bargain. Click here for directions if you don’t already know where you’re going…

See you down the front!

on the radio

To support our upcoming gig at the Lescar in Sheffield, we were featured on the local radio the other day when Chris Walker (who runs the Jazz at the Lescar series) was invited in to Sheffield Live 93.2fm promote the autumn season. The whole show (which you can find here) is well worth a listen as there’s some great bands playing there before Christmas, including friends the Andy Schofield and Jo McCallum Jazz Orchestra, but for those short on time I’ve also edited out the Beats & Pieces section here. There’s some conversation about the Manchester scene and the financial and logistical difficulties of programming (and running!) big bands in today’s world, before Chris plays our arrangement of Radiohead’s 15 step – this version was recorded in the studio in the summer, and even though its still very much a work-in-progress mix its your first chance to hear what the upcoming EP will sound like!
