The Fabulous Red Diesel are one of the funkiest bands you will ever see. Created in 2005 they are a jazz/funk quintet with echoes of Funkadelic and the Meters, cherry topped with retro jazz vocals. Think Barbra Streisand crossed with Janis Joplin over a jazz/funk/disco sound, and you are probably close enough. The Fabulous Red Diesel have been making their inimitable blend of original jazz/funk since 2005.
During that time they have released 4 albums , the 2nd , ''We Know Its 43'' produced by Phill Brown , the legend who produced Bob Marley, Led Zepellin, Dido and John Martyn to name but a few. Their latest album, ''Fur Coat No Underwear'' has all the tunes that gets everybody dancing on the tables. Their new album, ''Live at The Lamb'' is due for release in may.
The band has a fine pedigree, each member bringing a wealth of experience. Ms Kitty and Duke Boom have played in many bands together over the last 20 years, playing Glastonbury, The Jazz cafe ( Camden and Berlin) Royal National Theatre, The Mean Fiddler,Wembley Conference Centre and The 100 Club. They have played along side Jeff Buckley, Ananstasia Andy Coughlan ( bass player for Gary Numan) Tony Kylie ( Blow Monkeys) Angie Brown and Howard Jones.
The band are very much in demand, their music is used in film and advertising, and command a good audience wherever they go, especially when they return to Hastings . They have been headhunted by Britains got Talent ( turned it down for legal reasons !) and have had their single ‘Hot’ played by 6 Music
