ANDREA MARR & THE FUNKY HIT MEN
Andrea Marr & The Funky Hitmen launch their new CD ‘Natural’ at the MBAS House Of Blues on Tuesday 31st October. The Funky Hitmen are Dave Reynolds (guitar), Rob Little (bass), Roby Corelli (drums), Cameron Fallaw (keys), Sean Rankin (trumpet), Stuart Byrne (baritone sax), Jeff Mead (tenor sax) – with special guests Shobana Sebastian and Carmel Lennon on backing vocals. The album is a true taste of Memphis soul/blues and has already received rave reviews in the US UK and Germany since its release on 1st October. The album has also been played Australia wide, in Canada, France and all over the US.
“This has all the heart and soul of classic soul, funky enough to make James Brown sit up and take notice… in a world full of people trying to sound like their favourite star, Andrea Marr is a bona fide original – 100% The Real Deal.” Bill Wilson US review
“As with all the the great soul that came out of Stax and Atlantic in that halcyon bygone age and what Daptone Records currently do better than anyone else, Miss Andrea Marr combines passion, energy, and S.O.U.L with melodies and hooks to die for.” Rocking Magpie UK Review
“Pure nostalgia to the era of Stax and Motown comes back to life on this album. Images of Aretha Franklin or Betty Wright are burned back on my retina when listening to the album… Andrea Marr is an 18 carat soul diamond.” Rootsville Belgium
