Gideon Conn

Local artist Gideon Conn foregoes his usual Shabbat dinner to return to his favourite Prestwich cabaret night.

Known for effortlessly blending acoustic soul, jazz and hip hop, Gideon has a unique performance style which makes audiences smile and wonder where he’s been all their lives. His songs are thought provoking, amusing, and unlike any you’ve heard before.

‘The people of Britain may not know it yet, but Gideon Conn is one of their national treasures.’ – Scroobius Pip

Cardboard Shoes

My band’s journey began in college, fuelled by the influences of iconic bands like Steely Dan and Supertramp. Through countless hours of trial and error, we’ve crafted a distinct sound that is entirely our own. With new material being written daily, we continue to explore and discover multiple genres, adding a fresh and exciting dimension to our music.

Dave Viney

Mancunian performance poet and playwright, Dave Viney is a firm Sha La! favourite. As well as co-hosting Bang Said the Gun: Manchester, he has performed at various venues UK-wide including the Lowry and was chosen by the BBC for their Turn Up the Talent Showcase. He has been funded by Arts Council England and is by turns funny as f*&k and deeply poignant. We love him, we’re sure you will too.
