RE:SOUL Sessions - Leeds, May 26th
Tuesday 26th May
7.30pm - 11.30pm
Hirst's Yard, Call Lane, LS1 6NJ
A new soul jam session has been organised by saxophonist Jonny Faull and DJ Lubi for Tuesday 26th May featuring a house band of some of Leeds' finest musicians and the opporunity for singers, horn players and MCs to sit in.
DJ Lubi says...
In recent years, the deeper side of soul, funk, hiphop and groove jazz has made a resurgence in Leeds at nights like Soul Rebels (The Wardrobe) and subLIMINAL (Norman Bar), and with bands such Thabo & The Real Deal, The Abstract Orchestra, Noya Rao, Tough Crowd and Pé. So many musicians with so much talent and soul, not enough places to play.
To put this right, a soul jam session has been organised and it kicks off at Hirst’s Yard on Tuesday 26th May at 8pm. With a house band consisting of Jonny Faull on sax, Martin Longhawn on keys, Tamo Harewood on electric bass and Tim Carter on drums, it’s totally dedicated to the groove principle. Expect heavy beats, fat low-end bass lines, rich harmonies, tight horns, lush vocals and chops!
A facebook group has been set up for people to join and find out more about the events lined up.
