The Fabulous Red Diesel are one of the funkiest bands you will ever see. Created in 2005  they are a  jazz/funk sextet with echoes of Funkadelic and the Meters, cherry topped with retro jazz vocals. Think  authentic 70's style copshow bass lines -think Chips and a soft porn soundtrack,with Barbra Streisand singing and you're getting close. 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.

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 3 piece horn section ,aka The Brassoles, have backgrounds in brass bands ( Bea writes and scores  brass band music, and is currently working on her new album), Rabbi is an analogue synth enthusiast (and soundscape creator) , Voodoo is a self taught multi-instrumentalist from a well know band reggae called Herbal Love and Count Bouncy ( bass)  is also a fine singer songwriter in his own right.

When all these musicians get together, a fabulous fusion occurs, and the planet that is The Fabulous Red Diesel emerges from the stardust. As in all fusions, energy is released, and people respond to this energy by dancing on tables, laughing, hugging the band after the show, and buying cds.


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
