Why You Should Go: Because it’s funky! The New Mastersounds are a four-piece band based in Leeds, England, whose modern take on vintage soul-jazz, funk and rock draws influences from Jimmies McGriff, Smith, and Hendrix, as well as their most closely-associated mentors, The Meters. Try to imagine Grant Green and Lou Donaldson having a fight in a Hammond Organ shop while James Brown holds the coats, and you have some idea of what to expect from this band.

Having toured throughout Europe, Japan and the USA, the NMS have earned global recognition as a key band in the “New Funk” scene. But purists beware: their unique blend of Funk, Rock, Soul and Dance music is hard to sum up and doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre.

Please Note: The Friday show is in Cervantes’ Ballroom, while the Saturday show is in The Other Side.
