About the event
Têtes de Pois is a seven-piece instrumental band based in Leeds, performing exciting original music influenced by genres including cinematic and latin jazz and afrobeat. The band formed in 2016 while studying Jazz at Leeds College of Music, they are founding members of independent music collective and label Tight Lines. Since then they have headlined the Hootananny, the Belgrave, the Wardrobe and the 100 Club, and have performed at some of the country’s most renowned festivals, including Manchester Jazz Festival, Love Supreme and World Island.
Born out of the snake pit of Hyde Park house parties, Vipertime draw from the depths of post punk, afrobeat and free jazz creating improvised music for the dance floor. These are rhythmic reptiles with a will to thrill.
Young talent Joe Lancaster (of New York Brass Band) is putting together a special group for this show! He needs little introduction, beyond saying that this dude has serious trumpet chops.
