CACNELLED Small Ideas Presents: Jackie Moonbather & Nikki and The Waves

Small Ideas are so excited to be presenting some amazing artists at one of our favourite venues. We have some amazing local talent and some friends from a couple cities over coming to fill the night with some sweet, souly sounds.


Jackie Moonbather//Jackie’s releases display a truly unique sound that can be most aptly described as … Jackie Moonbather. Aptly titled: Steel City’s prince of DIY jazz soul and hypnagogic bedroom R&B, Jackie’s music is refreshing and exactly what you need to clean your mind of life’s unwanted noise. Not a drop of his album’s uplifting vibe is lost in his live show. He’s become a favourite of the SI team!

Nikki & The Waves//A Liverpool funk-fuelled daydream-pop band. With influences ranging from old funk to indie rock and bedroom pop, they’re difficult to pin down but easy to listen to. By mixing brass with upbeat guitars and melancholic melodies they manage to create a modern sound that is nostalgic at the same time. The band formed nearly 3 years ago after Amsterdam-born front woman moved to Liverpool to study, where she met the other members who shared the same passion for music.

With support from…Malah Palinka//

Blending neo soul and pop influences, Malah Palinka are a brand-new five piece ensemble from Sheffield. Self-described as “pretty good, if you like that sort of thing” the band blend jazzy harmonies with funky grooves and catchy hooks. They are working towards releasing their debut EP summer 2020.
