Award-winning London based band Ezra Collective played to a sold-out Manchester Albert Hall this month, wowing crowds with their unique melodic jazz and funk sound.

Members Dylan Jones and James Mollison opened the show in a memorable fashion by climbing into the historic balcony to engage with their supporters.

Mollison’s melodic saxophone notes filled the iconic Manchester venue as the audience sang along to the band’s hits.

Recalling a previous performance at Manchester’s Deaf Institute, drummer and bandleader Femi Koleoso said: [We] always love coming back to Manchester because it brings back memories.”

Catch them while you can on their global tour in 2023 – they’re a jazz group to keep an eye out for!
