The Godfather of neo-soul Roy Ayers plays 24 Kitchen St this summer.

Living legend and neo-soul pioneer Roy Ayers will be performing live in Liverpool this summer.

Ayers career has lasted an astonishing six decades, and the Godfather of Neo-soul continues to bridge the gap between generations of music lovers.

He began his career as a sideman with jazz legends such as Curtis Amy and most notably Herbie Mann, performing on nine of the latter’s albums between 1966 and 1970.

Throughout this career, Ayers recorded a number of solo albums, and truly hit his stride during the Blaxploitation era, especially with the soundtrack to 1973’s Coffy, whilst his late 70s work hit a commercial peak and helped him become one of the most sampled artists in hip-hop.

Having collaborated with Erykah Badu, Tyler, The Creator and house artists such as Masters At Work, he has remained an exciting, relevant artist throughout his career.

For Ayers to play the modest surroundings 24 Kitchen St is a real coup for the venue, and it promises to be a special night all-round.

Support for the gig will come from Liverpool’s ever-popular No Fakin’ DJs.

Roy Ayers plays 24 Kitchen Street on 17th August 2017, tickets are on sale now.
