‘Phil Lassiter is one of the dopest musicians I know, and the best horn arranger of all time’—Bobby Sparks
Philip Lassiter is ready to bring his incredible groove and funk to Manchester for an explosive live performance.
Former member of Prince and the New Power Generation, Philip Lassiter is a household name in the music industry and an 8-time Grammy Award-winning arranger. To attempt to truly define the bombastic brilliance of this jazz trumpeter turned singer-songwriter would be like trying to catch a bear with a mousetrap. A multi-facted, multi-instrumentalist, Philip mixes socio-political messaging with humorous, earthy storytelling and some forays into old school funk. Along with detours into one-drop reggae and a dreamy, romantic love song, Philip’s latest project is a triumph of deep groove, swaggering horns and soul-stirring vocal performances.
