We’re a 6-piece soul/R&B/Spoken-Word act spreading a message about reform. We’re all from South London and love spreading the message and the dialect that comes from this part of our beautiful city.
A Funky Fusion of Blues, Dance and Rock-Inspired Soul…
PopRock charged Funk expressed within a universe of characters.
Balanced within parody, irony, competitive musicianship and serious groove. Or to put it another way...White middle class character funk.
