The performers each had their own wow factor, but headliners OG Quintet, who announced most of them are under 21 years old, and actively looking for functions to be booked on, stole the show when we had to move tables out the way to party. Their jazz-funk ensemble was in equal measures accomplished and dare we say, cute.


Morgan Munroe's unbelievable vocals have put her in our top 3 performances of all time. She came with one backing singer and a guitarist, blowing the roof down with soulful tones and powerful lyrics that matched her awesome range. Their rendition of Pink Matter by Frank Ocean still resonates in our memory.


Acoustickle Indian Summer was made more special by the outstanding decorations throughout the venue, henna hand painting, a holistic healing den situated upstairs, delicious fresh vegan Indian food, and magical touches like Jazz FM's Tony Minvielle hosting, and DeeJay Gaz playing excellent tunes.


Ella Knight's sweet, striking and uplifting voice is dynamic and flexible, backed by just a guitarist to show off her own very dulcet tones.


Amie Cherry brought The Gambia to Nottingham, filling The Maze venue with live percussion, foreign instruments known to Africa and India, and of course her mighty voice which bellows in her native tongue, bouncing off the rhythms of her band.


SonOf were the most perfect opening act: a group of accomplished musicians with decades of experience who have formed a Leicester based super group, playing new flavourful music that was easy on the soul.


The crowd was as always a gorgeous blend of all ethnicities, nationalities and ages, proving that MUSIC really does bring the world together.
