Get The Blessing
With support from The Initiative
Rarely has a band taken the jazz scene by the scruff of the neck and given it such a good shaking as Get the Blessing. Winners of the BBC Jazz Award 2008 for their debut album "All Is Yes,” Get The Blessing are one of the UK’s most exciting live bands.

The Initiative are a constantly evolving (sometimes 10-piece) anti-jazz/rap/funk/rock collective. Bring your own take and experiences, and mash it together live with frantic arm waving, much excitement and general hilarity. Sketched heads and feels, constant improvisation, smart raps, loose-fit verses and some mighty big grooves.
