The Getup seek to create original funky Hammond-led tunes. Trying to keep it real and at all times a bit retro has always been one of the aims of the band. The Getup's sound remains firmly in the British camp and has been compared to early James Taylor Quartet. This is as-real-as-it-gets Hammond funk with horns.
The core quartet of Hammond player Mark Ashfield, drummer Mark Claydon, bassist Ian Stevens and guitarist Lee Blackmore are joined by the soulful powerhouse vocals of Sasha Goodman and the regular Getup horns that are Tristan Gaudion on trumpet and saxophonist Stephen Wilcock are augmented further by the incredible Ben Greenslade-Stanton on trombone.
The Get Up tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Aug 2007.
