So then, Best Soul / R & B Band in the South West? Well yes actually 🙂
Somehow at this years South West Music Awards we managed to pull it off for the second year running against fellow nominees Joss Stone and Souled.
Only John the drum wasn’t present at the ceremony but we made enough noise to cover for him.
It was great fun even though it was a week night and we were all on our best behavior, especially the brass section who like to blow their horns off inappropriately. They had to stand up all night the poor honeys so they must have been too tired to misbehave. It was great to see a bit more music at the event this year especially the Simmertones who always hit all the right buttons and great to see the Humanitarians get the best EP! Good work Rich and company!
There are a few more pictures here if you’d like to see us all showing off.
So thats a big thanks to the people who voted us into a nomination and to whoever the judges were, muchos gracias.
As always it’s great to do some public events we can get you guys along to. This years Devon Dubfest was a real scream and we’d love to do more of the same so get in touch if you’re putting something like that together, we’d love to talk.
