Join us to celebrate the great Soul and Funk songs from the likes of George Benson, George Duke and Michael Jackson with “Thunderthumbs”, the 10-piece band led by bassist Phil Mulford. Inspired by the great US bassist Louis Johnson’s work the set runs from Louis’ time with Billy Preston in 1972 through to his own band The Brothers Johnson and the Quincy Jones-produced hits on which he played. The gig features 3 brilliant singers, Jacqui Hicks and Debby Bracknell (Shakatak) & Simon Foster (The Flying Pickets), a deeply grooving rhythm section and powerhouse horns. If you like 606 regulars All Fired Up you’ll love this!
