Matt&Phreds x mjf open jam

Matt & Phreds


For this extra special Jam Night, Matt & Phred’s are teaming up with Manchester Jazz Festival to give all singers and musicians the opportunity to get on stage and perform at one of Manchester’s most well-loved jazz clubs. The stage is open to all musicians to play with fellow jammers and a house band, led by band leader Dave Luvin, that features some of Manchester’s most prestigious jazz musicians.  

With the genres for the night covering jazz, neo-soul, and R’n’B, whether musicians want to play a standard, a unique twist on a popular tune, or simply see where the beat takes them, all are welcome. Bring along your vocals, guitars, brass, strings, and whatever other instruments you play.  

Over the years, Matt & Phred’s Jam Nights have attracted the likes of Chuck Perkins, Lonnie Liston Smith, Benn Clatworth, as well as members of Riot Jazz Brass Band, GoGo Penguin, and the Beats & Pieces Big Band, to name but a few. You can certainly expect to see some familiar faces from the rest of the Manchester Jazz Festival line up, as well as those who have built a stellar reputation among the Northern music scene.  

More of a listener than a player? No problem, there will be plenty of room for you to kick back and watch the evening unfold. It’s fair to say anything could happen.
