Promoter Live Music Events

This project is about working with local music promoters, and giving them the opportunity to create their own live music events, with funding, mentorship and support provided. 

The most recent live music event created through this project is a soul and hip-hop event headlined by the Manchester duo, Children of Zeus. 

With support from Morgan Munroe, Jaya Had A Dream, Effie, Toni-Kaya & DJ Jaguar Paw.

This event will happen on Friday 23rd September at our 2Funky Music Cafe. 

This project has been very successful in giving event experience to aspiring local promoters. We have been able to host alternative music events at our venue such as a gypsy music night and we even recently collaborated with i.e. records to bring a formidable night of hip-hop to Leicester. 

This event was headlined appearance by one of the UK’s most respected rappers – Skinnyman! 

The night showcased exclusive unreleased music, live bands, merch, live art and the legendary classic ‘Council Estate of Mind’ album as you’ve never heard it before.
