The Mouse Outfit are consistently said to be destined for greatness. The unique brand of hip-hop they produce leaves no questions as to why.

Formed eight years ago by music teacher Paul Hooley (known in the band as ‘Chini’) and musician James Defty in Manchester, they subsequently recruited an impressive roster of musicians by hosting live jamming sessions to meet local talent.

These days, The Mouse Outfit is a nine-piece band held together by Chini on the keys, Defty on the bass and percussion maestro ‘Pitch’ on the drums and MPC. Their live shows are fronted by renowned rappers ‘Dr Syntax’ and ‘Sparkz’ who have featured on several of their album tracks among a plethora of talented artists.

To have these guys in Bridport is an absolute coup, and they would be recommendable to any fans of hip-hop or generally excellent music. Booking in advance is a must.
