Soul Rebels Featuring Necktr
The Wardrobe, Leeds.
This event is for over 18s only - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Headline band Necktr are now well established on the Leeds jazz/funk/soul scene after some high profile shows at Belgrave Music Hall last year including the Soul Rebels Sessions Christmas Party and RE:SOUL 2nd Birthday Party . Another kicking band to emerge from the very vibrant Leeds College Of Music scene and also affiliated to the Tight Lines collective, they blend jazz, hip-hop, Latin music, afrobeat and funk into their own unique sound made for partying or listening. Starting to make an impacts outside Leeds, they drop their debut EP in April 2018. Definitely ones to watch in 2018.
Opening band Mystic Brew are made up of musicians from Tetes De Pois and Necktr and play the original fusion jazz/jazz-funk music which inspired golden era hip-hop artists of the 90s such as A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and Gang Starr. The music of Blue Note Artists Ronnie Foster, Donald Byrd and Grant Green. Come and get some instrumental funk-jazz goodness to warm you up for Necktr.
DJs on the night are resident Soul Rebels selectors Lubi & Chris Welch (Soundwave/Sounds Like This) dropping all the right tunes but not necessarily in the right order! Big funk, jazz, soul, reggae, hip-hop, Latin, Brazilian and boogie bangers to keep the night moving along nice and sweet.
