The Soul Immigrants
This event has been and gone.
Critically acclaimed group,The Soul Immigrants led by irrepressible frontman Emrys Baird, are a potent mixture of musical ideas, fusing urban rhythms, gritty P-funk, soul jazz, latin and beyond.
The band are one of London's longest running funk bands,formed by Emrys & Nitin Sawhney. They are known more in Japan (signed to P-Vine Tokyo) than their own home turf but things are changing for them as their new funky single (featuring The JB's trombonist,Fred Wesley) has been championed by Craig Charles BBC Radio 6 and Robert Elms BBC Radio London,Solar Radio & Delite Radio.
As well as some choice covers the band will be playing tracks from their first japanese album which is funky, soulful and incredibly catchy, it boasts a repertoire of songs inspired by old soul-funk classics, Latin grooves and Brit Funk vibes.
Except some exciting funk filled, sassy grooves, heaps of audience participation and phenomenal soloing! For tonight's show the trio team up with former member and special guest on alto sax, Entropi's, cutting edge bandleader, Dee Byrne.If you like your horn horny and your guitar groovy, this show should be just the ticket for you.
