In keeping with the venue’s long standing tradition of nurturing emerging talent, the Vortex is proud to launch a brand new night on Friday 22 March. Grass Roots will be hosted by drummer Jamie Murray with his band Beat Replacement alongside Soulsa DJ and promoter Mr Boogie, and will be a monthly affair serving as a platform for young bands to ‘polish their chops and play their own choons’. These fiery and fully inclusive jazz fusion jam sessions promise to be a ‘must attend’ for patrons and participants alike!
“Beat Replacement led by drummer Jamie Murray have quickly earned respect as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands with their forward-thinking approach featuring virtuosic musicians, Zhenya Strigalev on sax/electronics, Tomasz Bura on keys/synths, David Preston on guitar and Kevin Glasgow on bass. Pushing time signatures with intense grooves and melodies making a mind blowing experience.”
Other bands TBA.
