Parrjazz presents SECRET NIGHT GANG @District on Thursday 9th December 2021
View Static Version
Secret Night Gang were handpicked by Gilles Peterson from Manchester’s vibrant live music scene. Newly signed to Brownswood, 2021 is set to be the main stage for them to breeze on to the scene, as a multi-generational band breathing new life into the classic British street-soul sound, founded by 21 year old singer/song-writer Kemani Anderson and multi-instrumentalist and song-writer Callum Connell.
Now joined on stage by legendary rhythm section Myke Wilson and Juneroy (52nd Street, Jazz Defektors, Corinne Bailey Rae, Swing Out Sister), with Jack Duckham on guitar and after 3 sellout shows in June 2021 (Jazz Cafe London, The Blues Kitchen Manchester & Brudenell Leeds) the generations have come together to carve out their own lane, a real celebration of exceptional songwriting and musicianship to expand on their indefinable eclectic sound. Garnering the support of Sherelle (BBC 6 Music), BBC Introducing Manchester, Colin Curtis, Colleen Murphy, LeFtO (Worldwide FM), Simon Phillips (Jazz FM) and Bandcamp Weekly, the band are currently compiling dates for a UK tour later in the year to coincide with their outstanding album release on Brownswood records.
