Mike Freear’s Slamboree return to the north west this month with a Hallowe’en special in Manchester.

The “pyro circus dub rave massive” bring their ensemble of bass, brass, and orchestral performers to The Ritz on October 29, with a brilliant supporting cast to boot.

Originally from Morecambe, Mike has built up a huge fanbase across the UK with his compositions, creating a unique sound that combines electronic music with live instruments, visuals, and a smorgasbord of theatrical performers.

Their festival performances and collaborations with other artists are quickly becoming the stuff of legend.

Mike said: “Marking the forthcoming debut album our show at the Ritz will be reminiscent of all the fun we had this summer at all the big UK festivals, and a whole heap of new material and theatrics we’ve been sitting on for a while - that we can’t wait to show you.

“We’ll be adding in a touch of gore-tastic halloween trickery too.

“Also this will be the first time many of the new tracks will be ever heard and we’re all massively excited to see how they go down!”

Instruments used include violin, drums, synths, bass guitar, sax, trombone, trumpet, and soaring vocals courtesy of Kathika Rabbit.

Support on the night comes from Too Many T’s, Age of Glass, Captain Hotknives and Wolfie Razzamatazz.

Tickets priced £12.50 are available from www.slamboree.com.

The show starts at 8pm.

Slamboree alsoplay The Forum in London on October 30, and Motion, Bristol, on November 5.
