Happy Spring!

The March Bossaphonik event takes place on Friday 20th and features a band from Leeds with a sterling reputation entitled Necktr.

The band push the boundaries of Neo Soul into wide ranging territories, a deep groove-laden experience that has a strong nu-jazz feel also with elements of hip hop, afrobeat and ambient music in the melting pot. The young 9 piece collective were music students at Leeds University and after a year spent exploring their creativity they tried out a few shows in Leeds. The result was explosive with critics now consistently citing Necktr as the most exciting sound coming out of the blossoming jazz dance scene in Leeds.

Their time is now spent up and down the nations motorways sharing their joyous music with audiences at clubs playing alongside other gems of the north such as KOG & The Zongo Brigade and Tetes de Pois. Necktr’s live sound explores a wealth of textures and soundscapes as they weave between captivating grooves and anthematic choruses. Rich Fender Rhodes chords sit with a horn section, sensual female vocals and a rich drum and percussion section for a big live sound and uplifting experience.

Check out some Necktr vids including a Camden Jazz Cafe performance:
