A funk and soul behemoth, with a Latin twist and a social message…. It’s the hippest trip you’ll ever take!

We welcome the incredible Pearl’s Cab Ride back to the Adelphi for a funky summer show full of groove and soul. Originally formed in the early ’90s, PCR took their trunk of funk to various festivals and venues across the UK and even attracted the attention of the Acid Jazz label.

The band reformed after a 20-year hiatus as a ‘one-off’ in 2015 – and it’s still going on now!! Since then, the band have released a critically acclaimed album (Beat Routes) and numerous singles – each of which have featured extensively on various BBC Introducing shows and worldwide radio, and they continue to write, record and play live.

PCR are renowned for their live shows, gaining new funkateers wherever they go, and they have graced the stages of iconic venues such as Hull’s Adelphi Club and The Polar Bear, Smokestack in Leeds & Scunthorpe’s Café INDIE.

They have also appeared at festivals including Boomtown Fair, Freedom Festival and the Humber Street Sesh, and have supported Smoove & Turrell, Flamingods, Hot 8 Brass Band and 47Soul to name a few.

“Funky doesn’t really cover it … it’s a chocolate-smooth, fluid collection, with sprinkles of soul and sass….” Scout Beck – Yorkshire Times

“PCR stir the soul and ignite the flames of funk at every gig. A must-see band” Mark Page – Humber Street Sesh Founder & Director

“This is superb musicianship – it’s hard not to get pulled into the whole soul vibe. Go and see them live!” Alan Raw – BBC Introducing

“This musical brew is one to be savoured….” Dave Porter – J-Night

“The psychedelic curveball you need in your life” – NME.
