The New Mastersounds
The Domino Club, Leeds.
This event is for over 18s only - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
The New Mastersounds have been delighting audiences around the world with their infectious brand of funky soul-jazz since they started out in Leeds in 1999 as the resident house band at the now-defunct Atrium club, where the Domino now stands. For the first five years of the band’s career, they were regulars at the Jazz Café in London, before they began to turn heads on the funk scene in the US, where guitarist/producer/bandleader Eddie Roberts now lives. For over a decade they have been a staple act of the late-night scene during New Orleans’ annual Jazz Fest. Though they have collaborated over the years with such musical luminaries as Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Corinne Bailey Rae, Art Neville, Bernard Purdie and Lou Donaldson, they are at their best on stage as a tightly-packed quartet – bass, drums, guitar and keyboards - firing scorching grooves off each other and feeding on the energy of the dancers in the front row.
