Verification

“It was like somebody had flicked a switch; almost as if the festival was in black and white before they proclaimed the audience’s attention” – Manchester Jazz Festival reviewer, Landcross

Deciding on a band to play the first night in our brand new venue was pretty easy, to be honest: who else can get the party started like our friends, Mr Wilson’s Second Liners?

We’ve paraded with them; we’ve danced with them; members of Mr Wilson’s have even featured in the Global Grooves bloco. We wanted our friends and family to witness the snappy musicianship, the innovative arrangements and the frankly wonderful costumes of Mr Wilson’s – and to set the tone for what life is going to be like at The Vale.

Who are Mr Wilson’s Second Liners?

In New Orleans, they celebrate in style. Second Lining is a quintessential New Orleans art form: following the band to enjoy the music, marching and dancing, twirling parasols and waving handkerchiefs. It is a full on street intervention. If you’re lucky enough to be caught up in the commotion, you’re part of the Second Line.

Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners are revolutionary genre-bashers who knock traditional Second Lining sideways, opting for upbeat dance tracks over traditional hymns. Hot-stepping out in uniformed style, they channel the spirit of the 24-hour party people, guaranteed to get audiences dancing wherever they play.

They’re an anarchic extravaganza, bursting with colour and sound, rallying impromptu raves on street corners and rousing audiences young and old into a joyful frenzy. Expending their collective musical talent, they pay homage to the diehard days of the Hacienda, 90s club culture and its greatest hero, Mr. Tony Wilson.
