Anika Nilles + Nevell | Future Yard

Events 471 Presents

We’re excited to be hosting the UK debut of esteemed musician Anika Nilles and her band Nevell. Along with an opportunity for a limited number to attend an intimate drumming masterclass with Anika.

Nevell is a band formed by drummer and composer Anika Nilles – and Nilles is much more than just your run of the mill drummer. Energetic, melodic and musically adept, that’s how she is described in professional circles and how her music is shaped. Nilles has been touring the world for many years, most recently with English guitar legend and multiple Grammy Award winner Jeff Beck. With her band Nevell, she creates a masterfully innovative mixture of jazz, funk and progressive elements; carefully combining virtuosity with catchy melodies.

Tickets on sale now. See below for further details.

“Rarely do you come across a truly original project with compositions and arrangements that do not copy others – they have their own style and atmosphere. The arrangements emphasize the originality of the melodies and harmonies and nobody, not even the leader Anika Nilles, shows off unnecessarily. This is mature, solid playing.” (Jazz-Fun Magazine) Nevell take their audience on a journey of compositional twists and turns, conversing in an on-stage playful, musical dialogue, unfolding into an unforgettable show of passion, energy and artistry.
