This is the first time an event like this has been hosted – and how lucky we are to have it in our own Byre theatre. For many students, this may be a perfect opportunity to pop over and see the theatre after its re-opening last year.

The line-up features:

Nick Pride & the Pimptones With Beth MACari: funky soul stew of phat grooves and beefy breaks with brassy horns, funky rhythm section and fiery singer Beth Macari,

Fat Suit: an immersive live spectacle, this 15-piece band deliver mighty mix of jazz, rock, and folk. Scotland’s Snarky Puppy. “A collective sonic surge” (Herald).

The Foo Birds: eclectic blend of soulful pop, old school funk and driving grooves; powerful singer, Kate Lister, fronts an exciting 8-piece band.

AJ Brown: a hugely talented young singer – possibly the next Michael Bublé.

Gus Stirrat Band: hot modern jazz delivered with style and panache.

St Andrews Fusion: funk, rock, jazz and fusion from homegrown jazzsters,

DJ ANdrea: direct from the Italian coolest crossover night out “So Groovey.”

One ticket to the event gives you access to 3 stage areas. 6 bands and a DJ will be playing for over 3 hours – great value with tickets being only £10. Doors open at 10.30pm, with music kicking off at 10.45 and running through until 2am. Alcohol will be served right up until closing.

It looks to be a fabulous alternative night out. Bring your dancing shoes and come along!
