BandR&BFunk

NOKE is the amorphous funk masheen that combines fresh original grooves with old favourites to produce the infectiously funky, upbeat live band that leaves nothing but dancing feet and feelgood smiles in its wake

Biography

Noke is a collective of 7 independent and free-spirited musicians united in one simple goal - to create a live show that is fun, entertaining, upbeat and leaves each and every member of the audience smiling at the end of the night.

Our live show contains a mixture of structured songs and extended sections of improvisation which ensures a fresh and unique performance every time we play.

We aim to draw on as wide a range of influences as possible ranging from early Blues and Swing to contemporary Dub and Dance

Set List

Our sets usually contain a mixture of original songs and cover versions. However we are not big believers in straight cover versions and often mix together well-known tracks with our own beats, riffs and grooves to create unique mashups

A typical night would consist of 2 x 45 minute sets however we play sets ranging from 30 mins up to 2 hours depending on the situation. Due to the improvisational nature of the band, typical track length varies considerably.

Some of our favorite covers to include are:

I Got The... - Labi Siffre
Let's Stay Together - Al Green
Wanna Be Like You - Louis Prima
Laidback - Hot Chip
