Nick Pride & The Pimptones bring jazz and funk to Birmingham on UK tour

Punchy jazz and funk ensemble Nick Pride and The Pimptones bring classic jazz grooves into the new age. Their huge stage sound, phat beats and smooth soul melodies will hit Birmingham at The Night Owl on May 18th on their 2018 tour.

The six piece group, formed by guitarist Nick Pride, have four full studio albums under their belt as well as side projects, all with their own unique flavour taken from the roots of classic funk and jazz. Squeezing as much or their collection as they can into a set, expect to hear everything at The Night Owl from pure funk and jazz instrumentals, soul ballads and high octane hit singles like the crowd favourite ‘Why does my man?’.

Their shows are bound to carry tight knit, punchy funk instrumentals with thanks to the flute, sax, bass, drums and guitar harmonising with each other. Vocalist Eliza Lawson then introduces sweet soul melodies that makes for foot stomping, body swinging music with a retro flair.

Establishing themselves in the North East of England in 2007, Nick Pride and the Pimptones bring tenacity and furore to every performance, combining soulful lyricism with supercharged funky grooves to create a sound like no other.  Fans of fast paced drums, supercharged trumpets and sax and just something a little different will definitely get into the swing of Nick Pride and the Pimptones.

Nick Pride and the Pimptones will be bringing their funky soul stew to The Night Owl in Birmingham on May 18th. More information can be found here, and their other May tour dates can be seen below.
