Allow me to introduce my brand new band, The Anton Hunter Trio. It’s got me on guitar (obviously), my brother Johnny Hunter on drums and our Skamel colleague James Adolpho on double bass. There’s nothing to listen to just yet, but there’s plans to record some demos at the end of the month, which I will stick online of course.
So why am I telling you this when there’s nothing for you to hear yet? Well, our live debut comes during this year’s Manchester Jazz Festival, supporting the fantastic Sons Of Kemet at the legendary Band On The Wall. Tickets are available here, and you should really think about booking them right now. There’s even a money-saving offer if you book tickets for that gig and Zoe Rahman’s gig the night before.
Here’s some photos of us rehearsing earlier today, and Steve Mead from the jazz festival came down to ask me all sorts of tricky questions and film us playing, watch this space for the results of that.
