About the event


After 10 consecutive sold-out shows in London, Improvised Jazz and Spoken Word night, Groove Verse, is finally coming to Manchester!

This unique event is set to showcase some of the city's most talented jam musicians, as they come together to create impromptu musical accompaniments to the best local Spoken Word artists in the city.

The one rule of Groove Verse is that there are no rehearsals. The poets meet the band for the first time when coming up to the stage, so expect a night of never-to-be-repeated moments of musical mayhem and lyrical wizardry.

Previous headliners include World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker and The Voice Semi-Finalist Broken Pen.  Now it’s Machnesters turn to take the mic!

A preselected lineup of both headliners (20mins) and guest poets (10mins) will be gracing the stage, with guest poets fighting in an audience vote for a chance to headline the next show. Expect appearances from the biggest names in the spoken word, as you've never seen them before.
