Mini-Gig Programme 

Brudenell Social Club


Welcome to our Made with Music mini-gig! We’re so pleased you could join us today for three different acts - you can find more information about them below. Don’t forget to ask the musicians any questions you have after their set. Made with Music is an award winning charity and believe that everyone should have access to live music. We run these mini-gigs regularly at the Brudenell Social Club as well as other events for families to enjoy together. We try to make everything we do accessible and inclusive for everyone so please let us know if we can do anything to make today easier for you. Have fun! 

The Big Easy

The Big Easy are an energetic swing band from Leeds with repertoire carefully chosen to give a lively and varied performance of swing from throughout the 20th century; covering repertoire from the early days of jazz, classic New Orleans tunes and lively jump-jive . 


With a smooth voice, refreshing sound and heartwarming persona, Akin has his sights set on becoming a household name in the UK music industry. Whether connecting to his African roots through jazz, or the outstanding use of futuristic RnB and Gospel vocal harmonies in his songs, the artist is coming with a fresh approach to how music is both created and experienced. In recent years Akin has opened for some of the biggest and reputable names in RnB Including Lalah Hathaway and the legendary Eric Benét. He has also been fortunate enough to perform in some of the country’s most iconic venues including Manchester Arena, Jazz Cafe London, Scala, Earls Court London to name a few.

Charlotte Hackett

A 24-year-old teacher from Leeds, returning to musical passion projects after a short career-induced, hiatus. Following years of playing live shows around the country, Charlotte's debut single 'Haunt the Halls' (produced by Will Killen) was released in October 2023, attracting attention from BBC Introducing prior to release, and described as 'for lovers of boygenius, candle-lit evenings... your new favourite autumn alt-folk banger' (Meg Shaw). Charlotte's next single is set to release this summer.
