Band on the Wall is delighted to welcome Sir Joe Quarterman, one of the true originals of funk and soul, performing and exclusive Manchester concert with the incredible funk powerhouse that is the Jezebel Sextet.

Sir Joe Quarterman is one of the USA’s most acclaimed Funk and Soul vocalists and with his band, Free Soul, released their single “(I Got) So Much Trouble on My Mind,” in 1973, a hard hitting groove with a social message which reached the R&B Top 30. Other chart hits include ‘In My Mind’, ‘The Way They Do My Life’, ‘Trouble With Trouble’, ‘Find Yourself’ and ‘Give Me Back My Freedom’.

Back in Europe by popular demand, Band on the Wall plays host to the Washington DC based singer for an exclusive Manchester date. It’s the real deal, characterised by social commentary lyrics, fat bass lines, soaring horns and relentless funky beats.

Fresh on tour following the release of their debut album “Lift It Up” the Jezebel Sextet, one of the UK’s most established funk bands, are a perfect pairing with Sir Joe Quarterman delivering a super-heavy Hammond groove, powerhouse horns and a killer vintage sound.

A seriously funked up night guaranteed to get you on the good foot.
