// They Say Jump //
TSJ have quickly gained a reputation as the ultimate live party band being labeled the ‘ones to watch’ by Harper’s Bazaar magazine: ‘The perfect festival music makers’.

Having wowed audiences at a number of UK festivals in 2013, including a main stage performance at Secret Garden Party, They Say Jump’s debut album ‘One Hundred Summers’ was released in Autumn 2013, with a follow up scheduled for late 2014 . Friends Hollie Cook and Horseman feature on their first single ‘Growing Apart’, which has received several plays from XFM’s John Kennedy.

Despite only being in their mid-twenties TSJ is somewhat of a super band of accomplished musicians with members having performed internationally with the likes of Submotion Orchestra, Hollie Cook, Prince Fatty and Gentleman’s Dub Club, to name but a few.

A grooving force formed by a multicultural collective of versed musicians, The Mankala Band has one common vision: to create Joyous Roots Dance Music! Since its origins, the band has transformed and evolved, expanded and adapted... yet has always maintained the original core energy and philosophy...Good vibes produce good music and good music produce good vibes!
