See out 2016 with the brassy vibes of the Haggis Horns, who’re playing live at Band on the Wall’s special funk and soul New Year’s Eve party. The genre may have lost some leading lights this year – Sharon Jones, Prince and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White to pick out a few – but what better way to keep their soulful flames burning than to boogie the night away in celebration of their contributions to dancefloors across the globe? The Haggis Horns’ unrelentingly upbeat force of wah-wah guitars, jazzy keys and dextrous horns will be matched by good time grooves spun by the venue’s top pop pickers til the early hours.
Sat 31 Dec, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JZ, Tel: 0161 834 1786, 8pm-3am, £17.50-£22.50, www.bandonthewall.org
