NuSoul Open mike night

Pocketful of Soul invites musicians to sit in

Published on February 13th 2009.

NuSoul Open mike night

Manchester has always been a hotbed of musical talent as witnessed by the huge number of successful artists to emerge from the city. However, despite the diversity of music in Manchester, its moment in the sun with Madchester and the Hacienda years has led to a certain perception of Manchester music as guitar driven, indie band fodder.

There is much more to Manchester music than that and a new open mike night has been set up to reflect the Soul/ R 'n B/ Hip Hop/ Funk/ Latin/ Reggae/ Blues axis that has always existed on the city's music scene.

Pocketful of Soul is an open mike night at The Thirsty Scholar, hosted by Adakini N'tuli. Musicians are welcome to come along, bring their instruments, sit in and play or sing.

Several artists and bands have already confirmed their appearance at the next Pocketful of Soul night on Sunday the 22nd. of February:

The Mouse Outfit – an Urban Soul/Hip Hop/ Funk band (www.myspace.com/themouseoutfit)

The Latino Bros – Latin acoustic duo (www.myspace.com/latinobros)

Ebere – Alternative/Trip Hop/Acoustic (www.myspace.com/ebere1)

Kiki Kibinda – Female R 'n B / Soul singer

Abdul Ibrahim – legendary Manchester guitarist, brother of Aziz Ibrahim (guitarist from Simply Red, The Stone Roses, Asia, Ian Brown Band etc.)

Venue: The Thirsty Scholar, 50 New Wakefield Street, Manchester (next to Oxford Road Railway Station)

Time: 7.30pm to 11.30pm Sunday the 22nd. of February

Entrance free
