mjf @ First Street (Main Stage)

Ben Powling tenor saxophone / Matias Reed bass guitar / Josh Smout drums / Luke Reddin-Williams drums, percussion

mjf partners with Jazz North to present a showcase of the latest northern artists to be selected for the groundbreaking touring programme Northern Line. 

Vipertime explores the borders of jazz, post-punk, dub and Afrobeat to create a sound that is simultaneously unique to the band and a microcosm of the thriving UK scene. Since their birth in Leeds basement parties, they have released many albums and singles, including 2023’s critically-acclaimed Arise. The group has also made a name for itself with a series of incendiary appearances at UK venues and festivals, pushing their line-up of saxophone, bass guitar and twin drum sets to its sonic limits.
