The Mouse Outfit, a homegrown yet nationally prominent household name in hip hop, are back with a new 7-piece line-up, with founder and producer Chini at the helm, making a return to their classic roots. The boom bap of old, where it all began, raconteurs to rock to, biographers to bop to, delivering a healthy dose of hip hop, funk and mellow jazz tones wrapped up in a dynamic live journey, carefully curated, flecked with gentle dexterity and powerful flows, designed to satisfy the masses as well as the most reproachful rap aficionado.

With their full live band in tow, this night at The Blues Kitchen in Manchester looks set to be one for the history books of the Outfit and one we can only urge any fans of the Mouses to attend. Go on get them tickets, you know you want to.

Fresh off of their debut record Big Love Blanket and even fresher off the plane from their hometown of Amsterdam, Personal Trainer are coming to the Hare & Hounds in Birmingham and bringing their volatile, artists approach to post-punk for the British masses to enjoy. 

Hard to pinpoint and even harder to emulate, Personal Trainer are one of the most interesting and musically diverse bands about at the minute, and if you like your music to be a tad challenging, but at the same time explorative and collaborative between a variety of genres, then this is the gig for you. We love them, and we're sure if the above relates to you, then you will too.

Kamaal Williams

When: Saturday 25th March 2023

Where: Canvas in Manchester

Rising to prominence alongside pioneering jazz drummer Yussef Davies, Kamaal Williams is a modern-day UK Jazz heavyweight, whose mesmeric live shows encapsulate everything Jazz should be. Under the moniker, Henry Wu has crafted many a piano-centric number, but with his history as a drummer, the piano takes on a different form at his shows, with an expertly crafted percussive edge that is heavily inspired by classic Boom Bap Hip-Hop. 

Basically, his live shows are one of a kind and will leave every crowd on the tour in a state of musical bliss. This is not one to miss for jazz fans and is one of the best introductions anyone trying to get into the genre could get. So secure the tickets so as to not be disappointed, this one's going to be mega.

Fun Lovin' Criminals

When: Thursday 4th May 2023

Where: MK11 in Milton Keynes

Right, who stole all the Scooby Snacks? As we're hungry for some Fun Lovin Criminals and our appetites need satiating. Since settling down in the UK, the American group have had a multi-platinum debut album ‘Come Find Yourself’ that spent two years in the UK album chart. Plus, the band performed an infamously raucous set on the famous Pyramid main stage at Glastonbury ’99 and the rest - as they say - is history.

The New York City natives will be trying to recapture the magic of this set, as they bring their infectious blend of cinematic hip-hop, rock ‘n’ roll, blues-jazz, and Latin soul burst to a very lucky crowd in Milton Keynes this May, and we can't wait to get grooving to their tunes alongside you.
