Hailing from North London and Warrington, rock’n’roll three piece Tom Mansi & The Icebreakers have spent the last 10 years honing their sound, playing countless shows across the UK and Europe. All three members are respected professional musicians in their own right, their careers ranging from collaborative work with legendary film director David Lynch to the British musical icon Donovan, and extensive time spent in the vibrant British Burlesque and Alternative Cabaret scenes. It is from these experiences that the band have forged their unique sound, channeling in equal measure the rock’n’roll spirit of Sam Phillips’ Sun, the electric blues of Howlin’ Wolf, the bass heavy jazz attitude of Charles Mingus, the noir themes of Tom Waits, and the electric energy of Captain Beefheart. Above ell else, the super tight sound of the rock’n’roll, rocking blues, rhythm & blues and beyond that Tom Mansi & The Icebreakers bring lights up the room like an arclight- a perfect Saturday night band.

The three piece have previously performed at many of the best venues and festivals across the UK and Europe including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, The Big Chill, The Scala and Hammersmith Palais, and have sheared the stage with Son of Dave, Imelda May, Florence & The Machine, The Sadies, Fat Freddie’s Drop and countless more across their career to date. This year sees them play the prestigious Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire.
