  • A night of live acoustic music featuring the amazingly talented JP Cooper
  • Hailing from Middleton North Manchester, playing a blend of folk, blues, soul and gospel. JP Cooper is an intriguing prospect amongst aspiring British Singer Songwriters

    Listening to him perform, either alone or with his band, bears witness to an honesty, intensity and power evoked via the simplest of orchestration.

    His soulfully expressive unique vocal style, the kind that cuts through a room to hush a chattering crowd in seconds, is utterly bewitching. His unexpected vocal flights hardly prepare you for the intimacy and empathy to follow, couple this with a clutch of sensational songs and you would find it almost impossible to believe that he has only been writing seriously for 2 years and performing solo for barely 1. 

    Thabo & The Real Deal

    Since they formed late into 2010 Thabo & The Real Deal decided they would make the type of music Bob Marley would listen to if he were still alive today. This guiding principle sees them tackle political themes head on and dealing with relationship issues in a profoundly honest manner.

    Their sound is based on four simple ingredients: percussion, guitar, keys and vocals. The result is what they refer to as ‘bare knuckle soul.’

    Together their first outing is a 4 track EP that gives off the feeling of a late night jam session. Recorded in analogue the stripped down, relaxed nature of the EP lures you into a soulful affair with political undertones. Subsequently, each song requires a second and third listen to harvest in full the underlying sentiment.

    Thabo & The Real Deal are: Ali Mac, Emmanuel Allert, Aron Kyne and Thabo Mkwananzi
