Band on the Wall

Situated on Swan Street in the Northern Quarter, Band on the Wall caters to all musical tastes, showcasing the best music from all over the world.

The club name dates back to the 1930s when landlord Ernie Tyson created a stage for musicians high up on the far wall.

It was built as a flagship pub in 1862, and was a popular sport for World War Two soldiers, before being converted into a jazz club in 1975. Nowadays, it is a not-for-profit venue which was voted the Best Night Spotat the 2010 Manchester Tourism Awards.

Some of the names coming up this year include Manchester DJ-legend Mr Scruff, the local sonic explorers The Earlies and even a show from the remaining Blockheads.
