About The Event
≈ SNAZZBACK ≈
Hailing from our favourite place in the South, Snazzback return to Leeds from Brizzle, and with a new stonkin' record under their arms.
After a flurry of very buzzed about releases off the independent label and cultural instigators 'Worm Discs', the 7-piece multi-instrumentalists will be touring their debut album "In The Place" this Summer, from the same label. They'll be hitting hot spots all over the UK, bringing their hypnotic grooves that freely explore Ambient, Dubstep, Rumba, Funk and Jazz to a venue very near you...
They've had support from Tom Ravenscroft (BBC Radio 6), Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2), Toshio Matsuura (Worldwide FM), Papaoul (Worldwide FM), Soweto Kinch (BBC Radio 3), We Call It Yazz (Soho Radio), Laura Barton (BBC Radio 4), The Blueprint (Jazz FM) and have played Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown, Green Man, Love Supreme, Latitude Festival, Jazz Cafe and Ronnie Scott's.

≈ TÊTES DE POIS ≈
Well well well, if it isn't Leeds' very own cinematic Jazz Fusion 2 steppers...
Têtes have been on a steady and increasingly hot burner since their inception in 2016, transitioning from new kids on the block to stalwarts of the scene, putting out releases such as their debut EP 'Framework' and singles 'Hope' and 'Deep Blue' which all featured very special guests: Otis Mensah, Alice Kim (New Position), Jack Davis (K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade), Rob Mitchell (Abstract Ochestra and Haggis Horns).
As such, they received a very special reception, with plays on Radio 3 and Radio 6, festival slots at Love Supreme, Shambala, GreenMan and We Out Here and headline sold out shows at Belgrave Music Hall and The Brudenell Social Club.
