Young Jack brought the funk to Gorilla for BIMM Manchester’s End of Term Gig last month.
The Hull-hailing band consist of four Jacks (Bowe, Allbones, Higgins and Morrod) and Tommy Bongo. They all, apart from Bongo, study at BIMM Manchester. They’re currently recording their track ‘Mojo’ for the BIMM Manchester Album.
Things are going Funky-Fresh in the festival department, last summer they headlined Hull’s Freedom Festival and this January they played in Hastings and Brighton for Independent Venue Week.
At Christmas time BBC Humberside supported the band, and got them on air for a live performance.
The band recently received funding from the PRS for Music Foundation to record three singles, the first of which is ‘Mojo’:
Like the brass? Legend has it that it was written by Paolo Nutini’s brass section!
