Join us on the 14th May as we welcome the Manchester based 9 piece band to Islington Assembly Hall for a horn heavy and funk driven live show, combining original material with medleys of classic hip hop and bboy breaks.
The 9 piece band are centred around Chini (keys), Pitch(percussion/MPC) and Defty (bass). They produce a slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. They have been influenced by a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk, reggae and classic hip hop breaks. Laced with lyrics from some of Britain’s most promising emcees, expect an eclectic style of Hip-Hop tinged with some extremely tight jazz musicianship from an extremely talented band that give off a very old-school vibe. The Mouse Outfit is conscious British hip hop at its very best. The band are a firm festival favourite both here in the UK and across Europe.
The Mouse Outfit posses great stage presence and certainly know how to put on a performance, this is not one to miss!
