The New Mastersounds represent one of the UK’s, if not the worlds finest rhythm bands, headed up by the legendary Eddie Roberts. Taking in the sounds of the deepest funk, rare groove, straight up soul, at times spiritual grooves and at other times down right funky, they are without a doubt on our our favourite bands of all time and we can’t wait for them to return to tear down the roof of the Yardbird again!
As a band or individuals, they’ve jammed and played with some of the best, including: Lou Donaldson (Blue Note), Corinne Bailey Rae (EMI), Quantic (Tru Thoughts), Carleen Anderson (Young Disciples / Brand New Heavies), Keb Darge & Kenny Dope (Kay Dee Records), John Arnold (Ubiquity), Mr Scruff (Ninja Tune), Snowboy (Ubiquity), Fred Everything (2020vision), Andy Smith (Portishead), James Taylor (JTQ), LSK (Faithless), Lack of Afro (Freestyle), Page McConnell (Phish), Karl Denson (Lenny Kravitz / Greyboy AllStars), Melvin Sparks (Blue Note Records), George Porter Jr (The Meters), Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker (JB’s), and Art Neville (Neville Brothers, The Meters)
Simply, this is not a show to be missed.
Support comes from Soul Food Soundsystem who’ll be bringing some cuts of deep funk, memphis soul, jazz funk, latin, rocksteady, ska, tropical and beyond (and perhaps some free Soul Food treats
Most Importantly….THIS SHOW IS FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT LONG.
Get down early, as it’s undoubtedly going to be a road block!
See you at the front.
