XMenBTeam is a 6-piece hip hop/ska/punk/pop/drum n bass-based-beast brought to you from the musical melting pot of Manchester. Quickly establishing themselves as one of the live powerhouses of the northwest, The BTeam tell tales of an awkward youth, failed romance and swimming baths, with a backdrop of screaming organs, sassy horns and filthy bass. 

With their witty lyrics, ‘classy swearing’, infectious melodies and dirty grooves, all topped off with ‘some of the worst banter I’ve ever heard’ (Some guy at a festival, 2015), come up, get down and take your clothes off, you’re rollin with the BTeam now!!
