GoGo Penguin have been internationally hailed as electrifying live performers

They are innovative soundtrack composers, and as a collective who channel electronic and club culture atmospheres alongside minimalist, jazz and rock influences to create music that pulses and flows from the dancefloor to meditative inner-worlds, transporting us into brand new realms.

They will perform music from their 2020 Blue Note Records release, the self-titled GoGo Penguin, together with new music and favourites from their luminous back catalogue. 2022 also marks the touring debut of the band's latest member, drummer Jon Scott, who brings his own uniquely propulsive style to the Manchester based trio’s exhilarating music. 

GoGo Penguin are: Chris Illingworth, piano, Nick Blacka, bass & Jon Scott drums

Plus Joe Reiser sound production

With support from Vega Trails.

Vega Trails is a new project from double-bassist and composer Milo Fitzpatrick, a founder member of Portico Quartet and features saxophonist Jordan Smart (Mammal Hands, Sunda Arc) in a richly powerful duo bringing together two powerfully charismatic musicians. The project was born out of a desire to bring the elements of bass and melody to the foreground in their rawest form.

4 star review
“the taut synergy between racing, pulsing, frenetic percussion and looping leaping keyboard rollercoasters... draw listeners ever deeper into their dicey slipstream"
4 star review
“meticulously structured, deftly paced and futuristic ... owes as much to 1990s drum and bass as to jazz ...hypnotic and quietly epic. "
