Superfly Funk and Soul Belfast and The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival present Men of North Country.
Men of North Country emerged from Tel Aviv's small soul scene, bringing with them a fresh approach to creating the perfect 3 minute soul nugget. The band started by chance, when Soul Dj Yashiv Cohen was overheard singing along to the 45's he was spinning. With the encouragement and eventual collaboration of his musician friends, he formed Israel's finest soul outfit. UK based Acid Jazz Records went on to release 2 singles and a full-length album. All 3 releases garnered glowing reviews.
These releases are filled with memorable melodies, infectious hooks and honest lyrics, portraying the band's love of a genre in which they truly excel. Whilst managing to stay true to their beloved 60's Soul Music, MONC also introduce a contemporary, fresh twist, even treading some 80's water, influenced by The Teardrop Explodes, The Style Council and Dexys, but with a nod towards their 60's favourites such as Al Green, Robert Parker, Gloria Jones and many more.
The band's records have been met with excitement from all over Europe's Mod and Soul scene and they have had 7 successful tours to date.
