Event Information

Sign in to follow this  

Monkey Jump is an exciting new Club based in the heart of Manchester City Centre's vibrant Northern Quarter. The night will be held at Kraak, Manchester's most underground and authentic venue which boasts a huge sound system.

The aim of club is to combine atmosphere, style & classic sounds of the mod weekender with the musical riches fuelling the underground soul and rhythm and blues scenes.

Hosted by Callum Simpson, Mace and Gav Arno you will get a mixture of youth, experience and an insatiable hunger for outstanding, new and lesser known sounds. You can expect an intense mix of Rhythm and Blues, 60's Soul, Ska, Latin, Boogaloo, Dancefloor Jazz, Funk and cool but uncategorisable records that are sure to define the club.

After sampling the goods of UK and European club nights, the residents at Monkey Jump feel that they have something to offer musically and that Manchester is prime for an exciting new club night.

Monkey Jump will be bringing the most outstanding, soulful and desirable dancefloor delights of the golden age of music to all who feel it...all music lovers are welcome!

11pm til 4am
