“presenting original and intelligent jazzy, deep funk grooves.”
Formed in 1992; the soul immigrants continue to make original and intelligent jazzy, deep funk grooves.’ they have every right to sound confident; their variety shows itself through the music, and combined with the influence of a previous generation of funk and soul results in a character that would be hard to emulate.
They mine a musical playing field that pays homage to the past masters of soul, funk and jazz. The immigrants do it so well and with such style, that it is still relevant today. The band has amassed a steady stream of dedicated followers in Germany and Japan rather than their native UK. Bedazzling fans with an irresistible blend of “in the pocket grooves” and ’70s-era soul/funk.
The Soul Immigrants are on it not because they pander to whatever sound is currently fashionable, but because they have unmistakable talent for performance and composition that any fan of live music shouldn’t miss out on. Be prepared to dance and join the party in full swing mode when you go to one of their gigs. Emrys Baird is a consummate frontman and all round entertainer and this 5 piece are real Funk Masters for sure with the grittiest of horn sections and vocals to die for ! This is retro feel-good music – unashamedly yesterday’s sounds for today!
” you guys are fierce!”
“i like the way you sing| you’re a soul brother too!”
“sunk without the funk now that’s a tune!!”
