Emotion + raw talent, mixing a touch of hip-hop with a whole load of 1960s soul
Nicole Monique Wray and her band make up Lady. In the past, Wray was signed to Missy Elliot’s label, singing backing vocals for Missy, Kid Cudi, and Blakroc. Now, Lady has a touch of girl band blues that echoes The Shirelles or Honey Cone. From their style to their music, the retro vibes will have you twisting and shouting in no time. Support comes from the distinctive voice of rising star Nathan Watson. Downstairs standing, normally £11.50 plus £2 booking fee. Over 18s only, photo ID required.
