Joey Negro and the Sunburst Band @ Band On The Wall, 20.10
There isn’t a better pictorial representation of the Sunburst Band than what’s on the flyer above. I can safely say that the shadows and darkness created by the cavernous, arched surroundings of Cargo, London, may as well have been butterflies and flowers floating around on a sunny day when I saw them take to the stage there, several years ago.
The polished soul, disco and funk tracks produced by Joey Negro are heady, dizzy and beautifully performed by the 7-piece group, headed up by Pete Simpson of Elektrons and ex-Raw Stylus member Donna Gardier. They’ll be celebrating the release of their latest album, ‘The Secret Life Of Us’, so you’re looking for a grin or 2, I strongly suggest you join them. Plus Andrea Trout will be continuing the party with a funk and soul set after the show.
£15 adv, 8pm – late, Band On The Wall, Swan Street, Manchester, M4 5JZ
