Glowrogues bio - “Choruses that make you want to throw your head back and shout CHOON!” - Jazzwise Magazine
Glowrogues are a Manchester-based collective led by Jim Molyneux. Their funk-fuelled, high-energy grooves are weaved into a tapestry that oozes heady ambient pop and tight horn-filled choruses. Players bring their vast experience from the jazz and folk scenes, having appeared with The Old Dance School, Apes Grapes, SKELTR and Mancunian jazz juggernauts Beats & Pieces Big Band.
The release of their live album ‘Live at Jazz Plus Presents’ in 2017 was described as “a tour-de-force of what happens when you blend a well-armed brass ensemble with crisp hip-hop beats.”
