Critically acclaimed funk and soul band, Brother Strut (pictured above) make a much-anticipated return to The Apex, with the addition of Jamiroquai’s guitarist Rob Harris.
Composed of some of the finest and funkiest musicians around, Brother Strut are inspired by funk, blues and American soul music of the 1960’s and ‘70’s.
They have honed their talents on some of the world’s most prestigious stages alongside an array of musical icons – from Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Madonna to Sting, George Michael, Amy Winehouse and Tina Turner, to name but a few,
Rob Harris joined Jamiroquai in 1999 and continues as a member to this day, playing and co-writing their albums, “Funk Odyssey”, “Dynamite”, “Rock Dust Light Star” and “Automaton”.
Rob has also worked with Gary Numan, Mark Owen, Kylie Minogue, Anastasia, Lighthouse Family, Katy Perry, Will Young, Paloma Faith and Robbie Williams.
Brother Strut’s first album entered the UK iTunes chart at number 2 and Craig Charles playlisted it on his BBC6 Music Funk and Soul Show.
Currently recording their fourth album, which founder Stevie Jones says is “their best music yet”, expect to hear some exclusive live tracks as well as the fan favourites.
Peerless showmen as well as musicians, Brother Strut pride themselves on their ability to deliver unparalleled live shows. With their authentic funk-flavoured repertoire, irresistible groove and infectious charisma, they never fail to fill the dance floor.
