The Greatest Variety show in the North West hits Band On The Wall on 21st November. The streets of Manchester are still buzzing from our first cabaret night – so don’t hang about for this must see event.
Hosted by Terry Christian and his alias Monsignor Malachi Mary O’Rourke this is Friday night entertainment with a sprinkling of culture and all the acts are by invitation only – it’s all killer and no filler.
Ren Harvieu With a first album that debuted at number 5 in the UK album charts – this Salfordian Chanteuse from Broughton is condemned to be a Star for life. Loved by Tom Jones (who she’s duetted with) feted by national radio , she’s got a voice that oozes sheer class. Think Patsy Kline meets KD Lang and throw in some Edith Piaf – because that’s the kind of company this 24 year old can hold her own in. One of the most devastating voices you’ll hear.
Jun Tzu – Teenage drug dealer turned rapper from Belfast who’s Preacher Father was in the UVF loyalist paramilitaries in his native Belfast. This lad is a sensation – think Chuck D of Public Enemy meets Bob Marley and you’ll get a sense of his passion and firebrand delivery. Last time he shook the whole audience to their boots. Righteous but not Self Righteous.
Stella Grundy – The one time Queen of the Madchester scene was born on the stage, watch her own it again at Band On The Wall with a selection of numbers from her critically acclaimed one-woman musical play fresh from a sell out tour , Rise & Fall Of A Northern Star.
Prose – one to watch for , young grime rapper from Trafford who raps over acoustic guitar melodies – this kid is the future of Manchester music.
JB Barrington The new bard of Salford. Sell out shows all over the north and winner of best spoken word show at The Manchester Fringe festival in the summer. You may have witnessed him being furiously congratulated outside Band On The Wall last time round by non-other than John Cooper Clarke’s brother. A comedy natural and as northern as killing your brother’s Kestrel.
DaBridge Aka Andrew Bridge – one time singer song-writer and producer of Moss Side Street Soul Duo Parrish who were subject to a large advance from a Major record label several years back. This guy is a true R&B Treasure mined soul deep on the streets of Manchester.
With a pedigree which is all in the genes as well as the soul Kyla is the daughter of famous Mancunian bluesman Victor Brox – once described by Tina Turner as the greatest white Blues singer in the world and her mum was a Jamaican born Opera singer based at The Royal Northern College Of Music . Kyla’s been nominated as the Best Blues Vocalist in this years European Blues Music Awards . Kyla will be accompanied on the night by her husband – Guitarist Danny Blomeley , the best guitarist in Manchester – take my word for it.
And more to be announced and one huge Manchester star.
