Jazz Comes to the Dark Woods

October saw our first gig at the Dark Woods mill. As a venue for the famous Marsden Jazz Festival, we played host to the fantastic band Manjula.With our friends from Magic Rock Brewery, serving beer; Noisette Bakery and Salt & Fire BBQ CO. providing amazing food, over three hundred people were treated to an amazing day.

Central to the day were Manjula – a four-piece band with vocalist Vanessa Rani Chutturghoon, Manjula (meaning melodious) delve deep into rhythms and melodies from Portuguese, African, Latin jazz and Indian cultures creating a beautiful, experimental fusion of global sounds.

A fantastic first Dark Woods gig, which has inspired us to already start planning the next one. Watch this space.
