Bristol’s very own 9-piece funk, soul, jazz women’s band
from 19:30 to 23:00
Meet Your Feet, Minke Whales & Wolfhound
Bristol ‘s very own 9-piece women’s band have recently released their first EP in 20 years following their reformation. Now signed to Jelli Records, Meet Your Feet will be performing tracks from the “Unfinished Business” EP at the Trinity, Bristol on Saturday 22nd February.
People who remember the band and who have seen their fantastic recent gig at the Thekla will know of their infectious music based on funk, soul, jazz, Latin and pop influences.
The band was originally formed in 1987 and quickly became one of Bristol ’s top bands. Meet Your Feet have a fantastic track record including several European tours and gigs at all the prestigious festivals such as WOMAD and Glastonbury.
The 9-piece will be playing their original, highly danceable music at the Trinity. The songs are dynamic with tight harmonies, catchy sax riffs, infectious percussion and spot-on lyrics, making it almost impossible to stop your feet from dancing.
And of course, the EP itself will be on sale at the gig.
Meet Your Feet will be joined by The Minke Whales , a Bristol five-piece formed in 2009 by Edinburgh singer songwriter Stuart Reid (formerly of Shifty Disco Record’s band, Seagull Strange), bassist Neil Hughes, banjo player Tim Moore, drummer Chris Mapp and latterly singer Elle Ashwell when they discovered their collective love of recording music in allotment potting sheds.
Special Guests for the evening will be Wolfhound, all female trio who play their own brand of indie-folk overlaid with soulful harmonies.
£8 on the night.
Music from 8pm
