Secret Night Gang
19:45-20:30 Sunlight Stage
Saturday 18 June
Secret Night Gang were handpicked by Gilles Peterson from Manchester’s vibrant live music scene. Newly signed to Brownswood in 2021 and nominated by Jazzfm for Best Breakthrough Act, the main stage is set for them to breeze onto the scene as a multi-generational band breathing new life into the classic British street-soul sound.
Jazz-Funkers Secret Night Gang released their bold self-titled debut album on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings in October 2021.
Led by the soulful vocals of Kemani Anderson and featuring saxophonist Callum Connell’s pin-sharp orchestrations, Secret Night Gang is a joyful slice of summer-soul goodness that nods to the vibrant history of jazz-inflected soul, while reflecting today’s genre blending sensibilities in a heady mix of souljazz, R&B, gospel and more.
Performances on the Sunlight Stage are viewable from the beach, trackway and Jubilee parade. Please note this is public access and not a managed viewing area. Seating is not provided.
