♬♬ The Palumbo Phunk ♬♬

The Palumbo Phunk are a London based funk rock collective formed in 2011 by songwriter, guitarist, frontman and Australian rocker Dion Blindman Jumbo Palumbo. This ensemble was born out of The London Centre of Contemporary Music (LCCM), where Palumbo was inspired to add a horn section and 2 backing vocalists to his usual 4 piece rock extravaganza.

Boasting a line up from around the world TPF have been regulars on the London scene. A high energy set incorporates Sgt Pepper and James Brown - esque horn lines, funky rhythm, big riffs and harmonies to create a colourful and uplifting atmosphere. The live show takes the audience on an exciting and soulful journey through space and time.

Taking a cue from Frank Zappa, the lineup changes on availability as some of the best players in the UK have played with TPF and shown much interest. One high profile trumpeter describing Palumbo and the Funk as Mr James Brown meets Sgt Pepper, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arthur Lee and Love .

♬♬ Soul Grenades ♬♬

Purveyors of heavyweight funk and soul grooves with a contemporary edge, 10 piece band Soul Grenades are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most dynamic live acts on the scene. Fronted by veteran soul vocalist Sabina Challenger (featured on The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show with The Getup), the band boasts a rock-solid, super-tight rhythm section, blistering horns, and a burgeoning song book of future classics.
