Mamma Freedom, Matt & Phreds

Matt & Phreds
Mamma Freedom

Matt & Phreds are delighted to welcome the return of Mamma Freedom to their stage. Likened to a split personality, Mamma Freedom knock you out with one hand, while picking you up with the other. It’s like watching a storm flatten a building, with anger and fury one minute, then seeing the sun break through the next. It morphs from chaotic to calm in the beat of a drum. A lethal combination of heavy, moody, hard driven, beat laden funk rock, and hip-hop and soaring, warming, uplifting soul with raunchy blues. Mamma Freedom will be playing tracks from debut album ‘Preachers & Criminals‘ along with some of their favourite Funk and Soul covers and no doubt new songs from their second album.

Please don’t use cameras and phones on the dance floor. We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar or balcony is a much better place for this.
