The live music kicks off at 5pm on Friday 22nd July when Montuno, one of Sheffield’s longest running groove bands, takes to the stage. A DJ will keep the dancing going until 10pm.
Phil Johnson, who always entertains with a mix of Jazz standards, gutsy blues, and pop classics, gets the music going on Saturday 23rd July from 1pm. Taking over at 3pm is singer and guitarist Julian Jones who will be performing country inspired songs with rock and roll energy. Sheffield’s ‘King of Swing’ John Naylor and his band Dizzy Club will be pulling dancers onto the terraces from 5pm, before Saturday’s live music is brought to a close by Papa Soul and their unique take on classic songs from timeless labels such as Stax, Chess, Motown and Atlantic. DJ Algie keeps the party going until 10pm with an evening of soul, R&B and Motown.
Leopold Square favourite Nicola Farnon & The Made Ups get things going on Sunday 24th July at 1pm, followed by jazz/soul/funkateer Ryan Taylor at 3pm.
