Day 13 – A Funk and Soul Road Trip

Yesterday we ventured to Bristol to watch the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show- featuring a rare appearance from the Fantasy Funk Band. What an epic night! The band were unreal, funk and soul musos at the very top of their game, playing some of our very favourite music. Followed by a stomping DJ set by Craig Charles, it all took place in a wonderfully festive Speigiel tent where the beer and dancing was a plenty. To top it off we met and chatted with a number of the band, finding them most friendly, engaging and interested in all things musical. It was an honour to chat to keyboard legend Mick Talbot, who was very happy to talk about Nords, Hammond organs, teaching, soul music, ukuleles and more.
We are lucky girls! Check out this link to learn more about the FFB:

About tiltherewasuke

Take two music loving ladies. Brew a friendship for twelve years. Add a quirky instrument. Stir in an idea. Leave to stand for a couple of months. You should be left with a duo who call themselves 'Til There Was Uke. A Vocal/Ukulele duo featuring Lucy Broddle on Ukulele and Stacey Rae Hobday on Lead Vocals. With our blend of original arrangements, whistle solos, creatively inspired looks and attention to detail we hope to entertain our audience with a mixture of well know and long forgotten classic tunes that have been administered with the TTWUke treatment! That treatment takes many guises and ranges from an old school Greenday standard with a time signiature change twist to an Amy Winehouse number sprinkled with a latin feel.
