Secret Night Gang
09/12 – District
Collectively known as SECRET NIGHT GANG, Callum Connell and Kemani Anderson bring their take on jazz, soul and funk to Parr Jazz this December, with Anderson on vocals, complimented by Connell’s razor-sharp sax instrumentation. Describing their sound as limitless, the group also knit gospel, RnB and soul jazz into their sound. Their self-titled album is the warm and reassuring pick-me-up we all surely need to get us through the winter months. Connell describes it as “not music to think to, but to dance to”. After immersing themselves into the Manchester jazz scene, the band accumulated bassist Stu Whitehead and drummer Myke Wilson (Corinne Bailey Rae, 52nd Street.) The band now harbours Juneroy on bass, and guitar from Jack Duckham, as well as guest vocal appearances from Manchester’s own Mali Hayes and Doreen Edwards. The night promises a welcome retreat from the cold.
