Soul Grenades
Purveyors of heavyweight funk and soul grooves with a contemporary edge, 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), the band boasts a rock-solid, super-tight rhythm section, blistering horns and a burgeoning song book of future classics.

Following the release of their critically-acclaimed EP last year, which received airplay internationally, the band have been back in the studio working on their debut album, which is scheduled for release in 2017.
Long Tall Shorty
Long Tall Shorty play greasy old school R&B and gutbucket Blues, foot-stomping shuffles and supercharged boogies. The band's sound has a funky edge too, something you would expect
from guitarist Emrys baird and bassist Al Gibson both members of respected UK funk band The Soul Immigrants. Third member is Dave Western on harmonica. Blues and Soul magazine has described them as " a real live wire explosion and hard as nails force to be reckoned with".
