We are very excited to welcome London based Jazz promotion company JAZZ PLUS to HQ. They are bringing the superb GLOWROGUES for what is sure to be one of the jazz gig highlights of the year.

Glowrogues are a Manchester based jazz, funk and hip hop band, founded by multi instrumentalist and composer Jim Molyneux.

Drawing on their inspiration from artists such as The Cinematic Orchestra, Snarky Puppy and The Robert Glasper Experiment, the band is made up of budding talent from Manchester and Birmingham’s jazz scenes; featuring members of Cinematic Folk Septet The Old Dance School, energetic Mancunian jazz juggernaut Beats & Pieces Big Band, as well as members of experimental jazz fusion trio Apes Grapes.

After picking up widespread praise and radio play (notably BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Now), Glowrogues embark on a UK tour following their release on Jazz Plus Productions.

GLOWROGUES – Live at Jazz Plus Presents is the debut live album from GLOWROGUES, and the first release on the Jazz Plus Productions label.

Recorded live at GLOWROGUES’ recent spellbinding Jazz Plus Presents gig at Notting Hill Arts Club (London), this album is brimming with GLOWROGUES’ unique energy.

“The record is a tour-de-force of what happens when you blend a well-armed brass ensemble with crisp hip-hop beats.” http://www.somewheresoul.com/glowrogues-live-jazz-plus-presents/

“Love this” Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s) https://www.mixcloud.com/sohoradio/dom-servini-wah-wah-45s-24082017/

Glowrogues are Manchester-based collective led by Jim Molyneux. Hip hop, funk and jazz is weaved into a tapestry that oozes heady ambient pop and tight horn-filled choruses. Players in the collective bring vast experience from the jazz and folk scenes having appeared with The Old Dance School, Apes Grapes, SKELTR, ELDA and the Mancunian jazz juggernauts Beats and Pieces Big Band
