Based in London, hailing from Hackney, Montenegro, Moscow, Sydney and beyond, Soul Grenades have established themselves as one of the most exciting live acts on the funk and soul scene. Fronted by singer Sabina Challenger, the band boasts a super-tight rhythm section, blistering horns and a burgeoning song book of original music. Fusing their many influences, encompassing crate-digging rarities from the 1970’s to contemporary dance floor fillers, Soul Grenades deliver no-nonsense, hard-hitting, uptempo funk that compels people to Get Up Offa That Thing and dance.
Following the release of their critically-acclaimed EP, which received airplay internationally, the band have been back in the studio working on their hotly-anticipated debut album, scheduled for worldwide release on 14th July 2017.
Soul Grenades have performed at some of London’s most prestigious venues including The Jazz Cafe, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The 299, plus a number of festivals around the UK.
