Joe Bataan - The Wardrobe - Leeds - June 13th
In what to my knowledge is a first in the UK Joe Bataan will be appearing at the Wardrobe in Leeds on Saturday the 13th of May. Joe is remembered for a varied music career producing salsa, jazz, disco and even early rap records. He's still making music with the track "Call My Name" being a favourite of last year
If that's not enough Joe is supported by a big fan of his, James Pants, who impressed me greatly at a recent gig in Manchester. Also on the night is premiere UK latin jazz combo Grupo X and Manchesters very own Irfan from Rainy City music.
Due to sponsorship by the Red Bull Music Academy tickets are only £10, you can purchase them from Jumbo Records in Leeds (available online too)
